Choosing the best cell phone
Choosing the best cell phone takes planning and the knack for
really knowing yourself. Your cell phone has to fit your
lifestyle, and that includes your budget. Almost all cell phones
require you committing to a long term contract with a cellular
company, so make sure you read the fine print, in order to avoid
any disappointments later on.
Armed with the knowledge of how much you want to pay, you can
quickly decide what features you want. Herein lies the secret to
choosing the best cell plan: when you know exactly what you
want, and how much you're willing to pay, you can always find
just the perfect phone.
Some principles to base your cell-phone purchasing decision
1) Not all cell
ular carriers or networks are created equal
2) Phone quality directly affects customer satisfaction
This means you need to do your research in order to find out
what type of phone and what type of cellular plan is right for
you. Find out what people who already own the phone are saying.
Research customer reviews and notate if anyone has brought up
certain issues or problems with plans or providers. It might
seem painstaking to do this level or research, but the hours of
hassle it saves you later on will be well worth it.
Several key components of picking the best cell phone are:
1) Cell phone styling and features - loads of features and
sleek design is what most people want
2) Reliable and cost-efficient cellular plans - cell phones are
monthly bills, people who pay monthly want a good service that
Cell phone styling varies widely in range, and it's recommended
that you look at and hold several different styles of cell
phones to get a good feel for what to expect. A phone that
doesn't feel right in your hand, will be one you're unhappy
with. The easiest way to see a variety of cell phones is by
visiting a local retailer. If the screen is hard to read, or the
keypad is difficult for you to work with, you need to factor
that into your decision to buy. Keep a small checklist of the
pros and cons of the purchase. If the cons outweigh the pros,
then decided against it.
Next make sure to rigorously investigate the cellular plan
you're expected to purchase, and read it before entering into
the agreement. Make sure all fees are disclosed, and that you
understand what you're agreeing to in terms of total payments.
It's better to be careful up front, than regret the decision for
Expectations of cell phone consumers is high, and it's no
wonder why: with over 800,000,000 phones sold in 2005, this is
one of the most popular products in the world. Companies ranging
from Nokia to Sony Ericsson make millions of units monthly and
ship them to locations around the world. Education is the best
tool that a cell phone consumer can have these days.
