Company Summary

Dream Mobile makes smartphones affordable by pairing them with data compression software to reduce the cost of both the device and the service to use it. We target the student network because few youths can afford current smartphones. Dream Mobile provides access to opportunity to many of these youth. We employ "Dream Reps" to sell our phones in order to provide them with supplemental income while also training them to run their own business.
