Review from a happy customer “Recently I went on a week long trip to India, and I rented a smart phone through Trabug in order to stay in contact with people in India as well as have access to apps. I was greatly impressed with Trabug! Their customer service was excellent, having a representative call me to check up on me. Their start up and closing procedures were simple. The only thing I had trouble with was the interface of the Galaxy phone, since I’m used to iPhones. I also had to figure out how to transfer photos and videos that I took. Having preinstalled apps was wonderful, especially Google maps and WhatsApp. And the price was very good! I would pay more if I bought an unlocked smart phone and a SIM card in India. I was glad that it was delivered to me and that they picked it up. I only wish that there were more drop off points at airports, which I think they are working on. Fantastic! Many thanks to Trabug for making this easy! Keep up the good work!” FrJay Kythe U.S.A.
