Company Information - Criterion Cellular

Experience Makes a Difference:

Founded in January, 1990, Criterion Cellular, a privately owned company, was established as a Technical Service/Support and installation company for cellular customers and carriers (Cellular One, GTE-Verizon, Cingular-PacBell, Sprint,  AT&T, etc.) in the SF Bay area. Our services are also utilized by top level government agencies and Fortune 100 companies.  Our customer base has expanded over the past 19 years to over 120,000 and is still growing rapidly.

Words mean things!

Our name has great importance to us! Though the word CRITERION is not an everyday word, the plural of criterion - criteria is used quite frequently. The word CRITERION represents our goal to maintain this organization as a standard for trust and quality in today's cellular industry! From our service to our products, we strive to provide no less than the best performing products and highest quality services to our customers. We named our company Criterion so our customers would have a standard to compare other wireless companies to. .

Products that REALLY work!

It is of the greatest importance to us that the products we sell perform to our highest expectations .The products found on this web site have passed (and continue to pass) our testing, abuse and evaluation for quality and performance . If a product fails to work for us it will likely fail for our customers. This would be unacceptable! We expect no less than the best products to be shipping out of our facilities.

High Performance - Value Priced:

Great products would be nothing without great pricing . We strive to keep the pricing of our products competitive while at the same time preserving product quality and providing the same high level of customer service our customers are accustomed to. You may find lower pricing than ours but we guarantee you will not find better products or a more stable organization dedicated to service and customer satisfaction .

In general, we think you'll find our pricing to be the best value for your money.

It's just not the same without YOU!

One of the disadvantages of the internet means that we no longer have the opportunity to meet all of our customers face to face or even voice to voice.

All of the fine people who work here at Criterion Cellular are friendly, knowledgeable and available to assist you. We believe in treating our customers the way we would want to be treated. Whether you are placing an order online, sending us email, calling us or sending a fax, we strive to make your contact with us a convenient, comfortable and pleasant experience.

Our goal is to earn your trust as a valued customer NOT to merely perform a merchandise transaction.

Where we are:
