Pocket Surpasses 170,000 Subscriber Mark
Texas-sized Growth: Pocket Signs Up 170,000 Customers Just 17 Months After Launch
South Texas Expansion, Customer Service Keeps Subscribers Coming Back
San Antonio, TX (November 11, 2007) – Pocket Communications is earning its title as the fastest-growing telecommunications company in the Lone Star State, surpassing the 170,000 customer mark just 17 months after the company launched its innovative flat-rate phone service.
Pocket has doubled the number of customers it regularly serves in a little over 8 months. This amazing growth has been fueled in part by its expansion of Pocket’s coverage area from the Greater San Antonio area into the fast-growing markets of Laredo (launched November 2006) and Lower Rio Grande Valley (launched May 2007).
Pocket credits its overall success to a simple business plan: Wireless phone users don’t want complicated plans, contracts or limitations. That’s why Pocket offers simple, easy-to-understand and reliable phone service with unlimited minutes all day, any day and month-to-month services with no long-term contract at the lowest possible price.
Pocket is on a roll. The company just added unlimited text messaging to Mexico as part of its $37/month flat rate plan, making it the lowest-cost wireless service in the nation to offer the increasingly in-demand service for customers with friends, relatives and business interests south of the border.
With 18 models of brand-name phones to choose from, Pocket has launched a “B Package” special, where slightly used phones (returned after less than 7 days or 60 minutes of use) are available for sale at many locations for up to 40 percent off the retail price.
“It’s a testament to our team that Pocket Communications has grown so quickly,” said Pocket CEO and Owner Paul Posner. “Because we require no contract, our quality of service has to stand up month after month if our customers are going to keep coming back to Pocket.”
For $28, you get unlimited voice minutes within the calling area – which includes Greater San Antonio, Laredo and Lower Rio Grande Valley areas – and unlimited incoming text messages. There’s no hassle about waiting for nights or weekends to start to make unlimited calls. Unlimited calling means you call who you want, when you want, as often as you want.
For $37 a month, you can get the Pocket plan that features unlimited U.S. domestic long distance, unlimited local voice minutes, unlimited picture messaging, unlimited text messaging and three-way calling, plus Caller ID, Call Waiting and Voice Mail.
With more than 120 locations across South Texas, including Pocket kiosks at local H-E-B stores, paying your bill is easy and convenient. You can even sign up for Auto Pay so you never have to worry about coming by a Pocket location for a payment.
On its flat-rate plans, Pocket also offers calls to Mexico or Canada for just 5 cents a minute, a low-cost option that is proving popular in South Texas. If you want popular features such as downloadable ring tones, Pocket has a pre-paid service that’s right for you and your pocket book.
