In an effort to compete, we are taking a loss on the phones, with the hopes consumers will purchase the 2-year plan and become long-term customers
Iowa City, IA (PRWEB) March 10, 2009
With the currently economy situation, cell phone providers and distributors are slashing prices to compete in an increasingly tight market. One example is Low Cost Cells who recently lowered cell phone pricing below the levels currently offered by cell phone manufacturers.
AT&T has begun offering refurbished telephones. Numerous used phones for sale are priced anywhere from $99 to $249. Some examples include the BlackBerry Curve and BlackBerry Pearl. On the AT&T website, prices are listed at $99 and up for used versions of their cell phones, while at LowCostCells.com, these same phones are free.
Verizon has also slashed prices. For example, the LG Dare sells for $179.99 after receiving an online discount. The same phone on LowCostCells.com is priced at just $99.99. Another example is the coveted BlackBerry Storm. On the Verizon website, it sells for $199.99 with a 2-year contract. The same 2-year contract is available on LowCostCells.com for $99.00.
Price comparisons between the cell phone providers and LowCostCells.com shows an aggressiveness becoming more common in the industry. In every instance we could find, LowCostCells is priced below the likes of AT&T and Verizon. So how can LowCostCells.com deliver lower pricing than the manufacturers? "It's simple," said Low Cost Cells President Nate Schmidt. "In an effort to compete, we are taking a loss on the phones, with the hopes consumers will purchase the 2-year plan and become long-term customers"
"In these trying economic times, it's important for everyone to shop wisely. Low Cost Cells approach is aggressive and risky. The results are yet to be measured," said Mr. Schmidt. Internet shoppers can view some examples from AT&T and Verizon on the LowCostCells website.
LowCostCells.com is an online distributor of cell phones for major cell phone carriers across the United States. The company's goal is to provide the best value and service in the cell phone industry.
