A new era in phones
The Communication Source offers anything phone users could want
By Ron Maloney
It seems like a long time ago, but once all phones had rotary dials.
Like the Model T Ford of a similar era, they came in any color you liked — as long as it was black.
It was wired into the kitchen or possibly the living room — only a very rare home had more than one telephone.
Things have changed — a lot.
And Usa Whitehouse and Myra Zunker, owners of The Communication Source and On Call Communications located at Business 81 and Old McQueeney Road, are riding that wave of change way into the 21st Century.
On Call Communications is a locally based — actually the only locally based — telephone answering service.
The Communication Source is a one-stop, full service wireless phone store that features four of the industry’s main brands — Nextel, Verizon, Sprint and Cingular.
Business has been good. So good that the partners this past September moved half a mile down Business 81 from their previous, 1,200 square-foot store to their present location, which is 4,200 square
feet and has offered them room to increase services (including adding a customer lounge and branching out into big screen televisions and a Dish Network satellite franchise.)
“We carry all the major players in the wireless industry,” Zunker said. “When a customer comes in here, we truly try to put them into what works for them. Our customers have options.”
Whitehouse said the employees at her businesses try to make every customer feel special.
“We know there are lots of places they can buy a phone," Whitehouse said.
The Communications Source also provides authorized Nextel service, which means a broken or malfunctioning phone can be repaired or replaced within an hour while the customer waits.

Now, in addition to the regular cell phone accessories, The Communication Source provides a full range of business solutions incorporated into a single phone so that businesspeople who had to carry personal data assistants, pagers and phones can now operate with just a phone that does it all.
“You see lots of guys who have three to four devices on their hip,” Whitehouse said. “They need a utility belt.”
