Should you get your cell service from an online dealer?

Cell service from someone you’ve never met? Does it seem like a good idea, especially since you can go to the mall or to a local store and deal with a person face-to-face?

Not as crazy as you would think

You used to think that you’d never order food using your phone. You used to think that a big collection of physical records was the only way to listen to music.  Hey, you used to think that a store that sold books would never succeed selling clothes, food, and literally everything else. The fact is, doing business online probably saved millions of lives in the past two years. And it’s changed the habits of millions more, possibly forever. So why not get cell service from someone on the web?

Because, you never really loved going to the cell phone store, did ya.

Well maybe a long time ago… I remember walking into an AT&T store back in the early ’00s. They had all the hot phones – the Nokias, Siemenses, Motorolas… everything you’d want. You could touch them. You could see the accessories they had. It was fun to go visit.

Now, my local AT&T store was a great place to do business, back in those days. You could walk in and talk to a person immediately. They would spend time explaining everything to you. If only things worked like that now.

The last time I had to go into a cell phone store, I had to fill out a form when I walked in the door. Then, there was a board on the wall like I was in an airport. I could see there were half a dozen people ahead of me. Eventually, an overworked and harried sales associate got to me, gave me the minimum amount of attention, and we parted ways.

There are great cell phone stores, but I’m willing to bet that most of them are sort of like that. Why wouldn’t you want a better solution?
