Need a New Cell Phone? Make a Smart Choice With These Shopping Tips

List: Posted: 12/30/10

Buying a new cell phone can be a job and a half these days.  With so many providers and an overwhelming variety of phones, it's a good idea to do your research before you head out to the shops. 


The first decision you'll need to make when it's time to go cell phone shopping is the carrier you'll use.  Whether you're sticking with your old carrier or you want to make a change, there's no sense looking at phone until you've picked your carrier - get the right one, and your wallet will thank you for it.


Once you've decided which carrier you'll use, it's time to consider the features of the particular cell phone you're hankering after.  You need to know what features are important to you.  Do you need a smartphone or a media phone?  Do you want a large push-button keyboard or an on-screen touch-screen keyboard? These are important questions that will help guide you in your decision.  Features like voice-activated dialing may be crucial to your lifestyle, so make sure you check the cell phone for the features you need.


The keypad is another important feature of your new cell phone.  Is it easy for you to use?  It may be too big or too small, and you need to try it out before you buy the wrong cell phone and make sending texts way too difficult.  Also, the size and weight of the phone should be compatible with your lifestyle - if you want a large Android phone but tote around a tiny purse, you may want to re-think your phone choice.


Battery life is another feature to consider when shopping for a new cell phone.  If you're on the go a lot, you need a cell phone with a battery that will get you through your day.  Picking a cell phone can be easy - just make sure you know exactly what you want from your new phone before you head out.
