Credo Mobile Brings Us Eco Acccesories

Credo Mobile is one of those type of wireless providers which piggy-backs on someone else’s wireless network – in this case Sprint – to provide its own brand or spin on being a mobile carrier. Credo’s focus happens to be cause-oriented, meaning it gives some of the money you pay it to progressive groups supporting different causes. It is now offering for your eco-leaning ways some environmentally friendly accessories.

Credo is selling for its customers and others the Iqua, a solar powered Bluetooth headset, as well as the Tread handset case made from recycled tires and the Solio Charger, a solar powered charger designed to charge various portable devices. These items will run you around $100, $25 and $100, respectively.

I’ve personally decided to take Credo Mobile for a two-year spin by ordering its Motorola Moto Q smartphone. While I’m not sure exactly how this extended experiment will turn out, I do think Credo has a worthy thing going on here. The dedicated sales of these type of eco-accessories only seem to strengthen this focus. I could, of course, just be a sucker as well – time will tell.

    I was in the process of switching to Credo Mobile. My experience with customer service over the last two days has made me change my mind – I am back with my original carrier.

    Everyone is very polite, but I get the impression they have little training, and little software support. They do not have an integrated way to look at my account. I called to tell them to cancel, and after that, they transferred my number over to their system. i had to have it transferred back.

    This was after I ordered service, and they didn’t even ask me what my old number was. And after they called back to say “Who was your service provider again?”

    Amateur outfit. I am all for good causes. But it gives good causes a bad name if they use them to get customers they are unable to serve.
