Subscribe to a Phone, Don't Buy


Remember when having a phone was the ultimate status symbol? Back before Apple and Samsung ever entered the chat, and walking around with a massive block phone was the height of cool? 

Today, having a phone is no longer a luxury – it’s a necessity. How else are we meant to communicate? And, of course, smartphone technology continues to advance, giving us functions we never knew we needed, like circle to search, advanced AI editing, and premium cellphone cameras. 

But let’s be real. Phones are expensive. Who just has R25k laying around to buy the latest iPhone cash? If you’re on the market for a new phone, you’ve probably spent hours browsing through countless options, and weighing the pros and cons before finally narrowing it down to the perfect model. 

But before you reach for your wallet and commit to buying that shiny new device, hold up! There's a better way to get your hands on the latest and greatest smartphones – through a subscription service like Rentoza. 

What’s a Rentoza subscription, you ask? It’s a month-to-month recurring service that gives you access to the product of your choice for a period of time that suits you. The amount you pay monthly depends on your subscription length. 

Subscriptions open up a world of possibilities. Here are just a few of the ways. 

Access a World of Tech

Technology moves fast. That brand-new phone you're eyeing today? It might be old news in just a few months. By subscribing to a phone instead of buying, you ensure that you're always up to date with the latest advancements. 

With Rentoza's product subscriptions, you can easily swap out your phone for a newer model whenever you want, keeping you at the cutting edge of technology without breaking the bank. 

Buyer's remorse is a thing of the past. Say goodbye to the stress of making a long-term commitment to a single device. Rentoza gives you the freedom to upgrade, downgrade, or switch phones altogether whenever you please, and you don't have to pay a penalty fee. 

You’re welcome.

Let’s Get Flexible

Life is full of unexpected twists and turns, and your phone needs to keep up. Whether you're constantly on the hunt for the best technology or simply want to try out a different device, subscribing to a phone gives you the flexibility to adapt to whatever life throws your way. 

With Rentoza, you're not tied down by long-term contracts or hefty upfront costs – simply subscribe to the phone you want for as long as you need it, and return it when you're ready for a change. You can also decide the subscription term that works best for you and your wallet. Got a year long subscription but don’t want your item anymore? Fear not. You can update your subscription however you want, whenever you want. No strings attached. 

Whether it's an upgrade to a more advanced gadget or a change of pace with a different model, Rentoza gives you the flexibility to subscribe on your own terms – without the burden of commitment.

All About the Price Tag

Like we said, phones are expensive. And the reality is that most of us can’t afford to buy a phone cash. It would take months to save up the thousands you need to buy a phone cash, and that’s time you usually don’t have, especially if you’re in dire need of a new phone right now. 

With a subscription, you can choose the subscription term that works for your budget. The longer the term, the less you pay. These monthly payments can fit more comfortably in your monthly costs than buying something full price ever would. 

Subscriptions actually allow you to help make your budget stretch. Say this month you budgeted R5000 to get a new phone. You could get a cellphone subscription for less than R1000 on Rentoza, and use the remaining R4000 on essential items like food, school fees, petrol, and savings. You could even use that for more important, unexpected costs that may crop up. 

Better for the Environment

Let's not forget about the environmental impact of our tech habits. Every year, millions of phones end up in landfills, contributing to pollution and waste. Every year, each South African creates 6kg of e-waste. These products can become a threat to the environment and to human health if they are not treated, disposed of, and recycled appropriately.

By subscribing to a phone instead of buying, you're reducing your carbon footprint and doing your part to help the planet. Rentoza’s business is based on a circular economy model, meaning we give new life to products to extend their life cycle and thus reduce e-waste. Once you’re done with the subscription, you give the product and we refurbish it so that the next person can subscribe to it. This cuts down on e-waste, making it a better move for the environment. 

Commitment is messy. Just Rentoza it.
