The common perception of the mobile phone’s existence is that it has been readily available for the last 12-15 years. Russ Weldon determined the need to make them accessible to consumers 25 years ago when he opened the first Car Phone Store in 1988. In late 2000, The Car Phone Store changed its name to Wireless Zone® to adapt to changes in wireless technology, with a mission to equip their customers with the latest and greatest in wireless products and services.
In 2003, Wireless Zone® created the Wireless Zone Foundation for Giving® Inc. to create a system of supporting charities on a national level as well as the charities and organizations in the communities where our locally owned and operated stores thrive. Structuring the Foundation for Giving enabled Wireless Zone® to donate as much as $457,981 in grants in a single year.
