TracFone Wireless expressed its intentions in putting up retail stores where they can compete more with other carriers. A few days ago, the carrier announced that they are gearing up to launch a series of stores throughout the country where they will be able to provide assistance to their customers in a faster period of time. Two stores have already opened in Brooklyn and Miami while another two (in Los Angeles and Chicago) are set to open in summer.
According to TracFone, these stores will be offering "Everything Under One Roof" so that it means it will be offering all the brands under their company: TracFone, Net10 Wireless, Page Plus Cellular, SafeLink Wireless, Telcel America, Simple Mobile and Total Wireless. The only thing missing are plans from Straight Talk Wireless, which are said to be up to Walmart to handle for the time being.
When you visit one of these stores, you'll be able to:
- Look for a new phone or Bring Your Own Smartphone to have it switched to a new plan
- Get assistance in shopping and comparing plans by trained personnel
- Activate and accessorize your device with a new case, headphones, or any other product available
Apart from announcing the opening of their retail stores, TracFone decided to discontinue its data add on cards (750MB $15, 2GB $30, and 4GB $50). Instead of purchasing these data add on card prices, you may now go for the $10 for 1GB data add on card option, which is quite a big discount from the original cost. The carrier also made some changes to its phone plans. You can click here to learn more about these changes as these have already been covered in a separate post.
What did you think about these new changes? Do you believe they'll be able to help TracFone Wireless increase its sales?
