Built4U Mobile, a telecom start-up, has launched a new nationwide mobile telephone company with a full suite of products and services that are targeting customers tired of overpaying for their phone services.
The company (www.built4umobile.com) also is lining up partnerships with local institutions, such as local school districts, colleges and faith-based groups, to allow them to generate revenue and create opportunities. Darrell Woolen, Built4UMobile’s founder, has more than 35 years in the telecommunications industry, working for such companies AT&T, Sprint, Com Systems and DSC Communication. He started the nationwide full-service mobile telephone company because he, along with so many friends and family, complained about their rising cell phone bills.
“Let’s face it,” Woolen said. “We can’t live without our cell phones nowadays. Built4U Mobile has no hidden costs or agendas. You pay for what you want and what you use. It’s easy to sign up, get going and start using your phone without worrying about how much your phone bill will be every month.”
Woolen’s team consists of a group of experienced sales, telecommunications and operations executives who joined him to start the company. Convenience and flexibility are among the key components of the Built4Umodel. Customers can sign up for plans online 24/7, contact a local sales agent or call by phone (855-399-2470) to have access to high-quality multi-carrier networks available around the country. The company offers customers a full suite of products, including voice, text, data and cell phones. No contracts for service are required and devices are available with $0 interest for a two-year agreement, with approved credit.
Built4U Mobile also is signing up direct sales agents, (built4ucareers.com) avoiding traditional brick-and-mortar stores to keep overhead costs low. The company’s founder, Darrell Woolen is setting out to create a highly profitable company, but wants to make sure he’s also giving back to the community. As part of its social entrepreneurship philosophy, Built4U Mobile is negotiating strategic partnerships with local schools, colleges, and churches so they can raise money from cell phone usage. “We like to think of it as recycling revenues back into the communities we serve,” Woolen said. Recently, Dr. Frederick D. Haynes, III of Friendship-West Baptist Church, added Built4U Mobile to its West Wall Street Initiative, an effort to empower local businesses and consumers to reinvest in their communities.
“Of course, we’re looking to become a hugely successful company,” Woolen said. “But we are also about community development, we have a passion for it. We want to help school districts, colleges, and churches have the resources to prepare the next generation.”
