Buy Unlocked Smartphones in our Shop
With so many cell phone service providers it is sometimes difficult to decide which one to choose. They tempt you with super-hyper economical plans with the state-of-the-art telephones to choose from with each subscription. The problem is, however, that once you buy a mobile phone from an operator, you can't use it with other operator's SIM card. The phones are locked.
There are people who will offer you unlocking your phone, but this service will void your warranty, and if something goes wrong, you are left with a broken phone, and a SIM card that you can't use. Additionally, attractive phones, smartphones, are available at attractive prices only with expensive subscription plans.
On the other hand, there are people who want to control their spendings and buy prepaid phone cards. And again, you can buy a starter set from every operator out there, but then again you are bound to this operator's services only, because the phones are locked. So if you ever want to change the operator, you won't be able to use their cell phone with another operator's SIM card.
Here is where unlocked phones come into play. If you just want a basic subscription and freedom to change operators once your subscription expires, you might consider buying an unlocked mobile phone. If you want prepaid service, and again freedom of choice, you should think about buying an unlocked phone, too.
What are the pros? First of all, freedom of choice. With an unlocked phone you are able to buy a basic subscription plan and SIM card only from any operator, and now when transferring a number is not a big deal, you can always have the best deals on subscription, year after year. The same is true for prepaid services.
Secondly, you buy the phone you want without binding yourself for years with this or that cell phone operator. When you want a decent (not necessarily a state-of-the-art) phone with a subscription, you either have to choose an expensive plan or sign the contract for many years. Buying an unlocked phone, you are free to choose subscriptions, their durations, and operators at the same time.
Thirdly, you know how much you pay for the phone. Normally, you could say you always know how much you pay for the phone, but is it true? Imagine you sign a contract with an operator, and your monthly subscription is, say $50, and you get a phone that costs $300 on the open market. With the subscription, it is yours for $9.99. OK, $290 in your pocket. But when you analyze your bills, you can see that out the $50 subscription, you really utilize, say $20 worth of services. It means that $30 goes up in smoke month after month... The contract is for 3 years. 3 x 12 x $30 = $1080 ( $9.99). This is the real price you paid for the phone, which - by the way - becomes outdated after a year. With an unlocked phone, you will always be able to choose a contract suitable for you in every way, and change the phone each time you want it.
And the only perceived disadvantage is that unlocked phones for sale on the open market can be expensive to buy, but the freedom they offer is worth it without doubt.
