However, for people who are just fed up with getting the same cell over and over again, there are unlocked phones 2013. These gadgets are best purchased online or at a cellular retail store where you don't have to sign a new contract for a service you already have.
Why go through the process of haggling and dealing with pushy sales people if all you need is a new phone?
What are some of the benefits of buying an unlocked phone?
In 2013, more service provider shops are popping up everywhere, even right beside their competition in most areas. This means that they're locking the phones to the specific networks as soon as you purchase them in the shops.
For example, the innovative Samsung Galaxy S III 8 GB Unlocked Phone is available on Amazon with your choice of providers or as a monthly pay-as-you-go option. If you bought this same phone in-store with a specific network provider, you'd be held to the contract agreement for that phone for up to 2 years, or even longer with some networks.
Unlocked phones are usually more affordable and if you decide to switch carriers later on, you simply save all your information, pop out the old SIM card, and replace it with a new one from your desired network provider. You can get a new cellular device whenever you want to!
One of the best advantages comes from people who travel often. Say you've just acquired a new Blackberry Curve 9320 and it's going great until you leave the country and have to pay serious roaming fees. The unlocked version could help you here as all you'd need to pay are the local rates of wherever you are. It's an easy solution to a typically complex expense!
