Unlocked phones are becoming a popular choice here in the U.S. Why? Because nothing beats the freedom of an unlocked phone when it comes to choice of models, carriers or plans.
What is an unlocked smartphone? An unlocked smartphone is a phone that isn’t tied to a specific carrier or contract. Therefore, you have the freedom to shop for the latest phones and plans as often — or as infrequently — as you like. And when it comes to international travel, unlocked phones can’t be beat.
Nothing sucks more than being locked into a cellphone contract!!! Those contracts always seem like a killer deal at the time (props to you marketing teams) & I swear, every time you sign your life away to that phone you "Just had to have" about a month later you turn on the TV and see a new phone at an even more killer price. Unfortunately for you, you just signed what seems like a million years to that phone in your hand, so unless you win the lotto to pay off all those ridiculous early termination fees, your stuck with that phone for years! That's right YEARS. By the time you qualify for an upgrade, your phone will be considered a dinosaur. You mind as well just carry a flip phone since you will be laughed at the same!
I totally get why phone companies do this. They want to control the competition, like any profitable business owner, so they can maximize their profits. Unfortunately for us, that doesn't give us, the consumers, the opportunity to save as much loot as we could, and it totally limits our choices.
Thank goodness contracts are becoming a thing of the past and Best Buy has the best options for buying an unlocked phone, and an explanation of how it even works!
