unlocked smartphone

I have had a cellphone since I was about 14 years old – but I had never heard of unlocked smartphones before. I think there are a lot of people out there who have not heard of this before, so I am excited to let you know about it. With a locked cellphone, that means there is no way to switch cellphone companies while you have that phone – even though you pay for it! I know that I had to pay for my smartphone and because I am did so with a certain company, I would need to purchase a new one in order to switch companies.

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. Best Buy has found that once someone buys an unlocked phone, they love it. If they aren’t into unlocked phones yet, they either don’t know about the unlocked category or they’re enrolled in a contract plan with an iPhone or android smartphone that they can’t easily get out of.
