It's been a long and interesting ride since 1990, when Joel Saltzman was recruited to manage, Alfa Car Radio, a high-end audio/vehicle security chain. Alfa had just become an Los Angeles Cellular Master Agent. Joel was initially hired to manage their Hollywood location and grow their cellular business. Within a year, he was also managing the West Hollywood, and Newport Beach locations of this rapidly growing company as well. In 1996, Joel eventually took ownership of Alfa. He then incorporated as Corporate Wireless Services, Inc., dba. "Dr Wireless".
Dr Wireless has worked with every carrier since and managed wireless programs for major Universities, Hospitals, the Entertainment Industry, and businesses of all size. Today, Joel and his team specialize in Unified Cloud As A Service Solutions. Whether your Business needs a professional cloud phone solution, Disaster Preparedness/Satellite Phones, or unbiased Information Technology advice, you don't have to be a rock star to get the professional Red Carpet treatment.
Below are a few words from clients over the years...
Hi Joel... Drew Canter works for AEG and is on the Black Eyed Peas tour. Drew just called me inquiring to get his crew on a verizon blackberry plan. I told him that you were THE guy he should use for all his global networking/wireless needs. Drew, just let the Dr. know what your guys are looking for and he will sort you out. Take care of Joel, he's a legend!

Working with you on all my cell phone needs, including service providers, phones, PDA's and accessories has been a total delight. You have done a magnificent job of protecting me from the unending hassles that my friends and colleagues have suffered in all aspects of their cell phone experience. For that I am deeply in your debt. Each time I need information or advice, you are always there with personalized information, a visit to my work or home, and immediate response. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your expertise, help, great advice and service.

Thank you for all your assistance throughout these last few years. Working with you on all my cell phone needs, including service providers, phones, and accessories, has been a very positive experience. I have always found you to be knowledgeable, experienced and available to help me navigate this complex area. Each time I needed information, service, or advice you were always there. It is a pleasure to work with a professional who knows what he is doing. Believe me.

"Joel is one-of-a-kind in the wireless world, whom I have worked with since 15 years ago to match my wireless needs with the available technology and providers. He has taken "ownership" of my account to make sure things are running smoothly, even at times when it was obvious it wasn't providing him with any remuneration. He now handles our whole office at UCLA. He values the customer relationship in the world of wireless where it is usually lengthy holds waiting for suboptimal customer/tech support. I think he genuinely enjoys helping people get value out of their wireless plans, and I recommend him without hesitation."

This thank you e-mail is long overdue...
I cannot thank you enough for helping me with all my cell phone needs for the past 7 years! Everything from local (US) service providers to calling 'to' and 'from' around the world has been so easy and cheap thanks to you. Your "DrWireless WIN Program" has been a HUGE help for me and I refer to it all the time especially when traveling outside of the US. I am very happy that I subscribed to it last year. You and Chantal are so knowledgeable but most of all you are always available and happy to help.

You are a treasure. Thank you so much for the part that you played at the LA Cancer Cure 10k Run. I am certain that we will look to do more with technology next year; it seems that particularly with the late registration it would be helpful.

In the 12 plus years I have had the fortune to work with your company you and your team have always been there for me with an answer or a solution. I depend on you and you have never let me down. That included last week where your advice probably saved me hundreds of dollars by alerting me of special "off-sheet" plans my carrier never would. In closing keep up the excellent work and continue to keep me in the loop!
I searched and searched and searched for a way to connect my Mac to the net with a cellular card. I stumbled across Dr. Wireless and thought I'd give them a try. Joel said, "Of course we can set you up." He walked me through the options, ordered and configured my card, and then held my hand through the set up on my computer. It's worked like a charm ever since. I give Dr. Wireless a 10 out of 10 for service, speed, and accuracy. I wouldn't go with anyone else.
We at CTS utilize the services of Joel Saltzman of Corporate Wireless as the vendor to UCLA Department of Communications Technology Services.

Hey Joel & GlobalStar team,
The whole Operation Nepal team, Mike and I would like to say a huge THANK YOU for being part of this amazing journey. We loved having the safety net of a Spot on the whole time and I know family members back home loved checking in on our location during the project. From Himalayan mountain roads to pollution hindered Kathmandu dirt highways. We drove around Nepal delivering solar energy to over 1,000 homes and 4 school districts. As well as supplies and clothes, donating off the grid solar systems to schools and village homes that have never had solar or any electric light whatsoever has been incredible. We not only completed #operationnepal but surpassed our goals and raised over $35,000USD (on top of the $55,000USD we raised last year) from 150 individual rockstars over the last 4 weeks. We touched on and affected 10,000 Nepalese people over the course of the project.
All the best,
Adventures for Change Co-Founder
