If you are in business, then odds are you have sales staff that lives on their cell phone. That could be you as well.
I receive lots of cell calls per day from traveling CEOs, veeps, and ordinary marketing and salespeople. Many is the time they are calling me from a taxi, en route from the airport to their hotel. We are talking, then all of a sudden they cut out.
Must be a dead cell zone.
I realize this is not their fault, but a little preventive knowledge would help.
There’s a website called Dead Cell Zones.com I would like to refer you to. It logs, well, dead cell zone reports from cell users in most U.S. metro areas, as well as customers from most carriers that serve those regions.
You can search for reports of dead cell zones by metro area ,and by carrier. Then, if you or one of your staff are planning to drive through or past that area, you might forego the call until you are out of the dead zone. Alternatively, they can relay a warning to the person they are speaking to about reports of poor reception in an area they are about to go through.
What’s more, you can tell the person(s) you are speaking with that you got that info on Dead Cell Zones.com. Considering that they’ve probably been in your shoes, they will appreciate the tip. Plus you’ll look like someone on top of real-world technology.
Which you are, right?
