Abstract: The call centre has become the main communication channel between the cell phone users and mobile communication operator. By integrating Technology Acceptance Model (TAM), D&M Information System (IS) Success Model, Service Quality and Theory of Planned Behaviour (TPB), this paper proposes an integrated model of the factors, which influence the cell phone users| intention to adopt call centre services. Drawing on the empirical base of 198 users| questionnaires, the paper concludes that users| Perceived Usefulness (PU) and Perceived Behavioural Control (PBC) positively influence their intention to adopt the call centre services. Information quality positively related to users| PU, system quality to users| Perceived Ease Of Use (PEOU) and users| self-efficacy has a positive influence on PBC and users| PEOU.
