Why No Contract Smartphones Do Not Suck

Why No Contract Smartphones Do Not Suck [adsense]No Contract Smartphones have come a long way in the last few years. No longer is it necessary to have a 2+ year contract to get the type of smartphone or service you want. Even major cell phone companies are starting to fall in line with the no contract model. The concept works, and in many cases it is better in every way than a contract cell phone plan. Let’s go over a few important factors to consider before you make any decisions regarding your smartphone use. Affordability The major cell phone companies will boast amazing prices on brand new smartphones. You may see them for “sale” at $100 all the way down to free depending on the smartphone brand or model.

The key to understand is that the cell phone plan will be higher than normal to subsidize the cost for the phone plus more! Let’s take for example the Samsung Galaxy S3. There is a deal on this phone with one major cell phone company at around $30 with a 2 year contract. The plan for unlimited talk, text and web starts at $99 per month. Over the 2 year life of the...

As you well may know, GSM and CDMA are the world’s most popular used technologies in the cell phone industry today. CDMA is most commonly used in the US while GSM is most common world wide.

GSM devices on the other hand, carry phone information on a SIM Card. SIM Cards can easily be switched from one carrier to another in the cases of out of area or even out of the country travel. What this means is, if you can get a hold of a reliable Unlocked GSM device.
