Suggestions on How to Shop For a New Cell Phone

List: Posted: 11/18/10

Having a modern cell phone today is simply a necessity. With rapidly-changing technology in the world of electronics, though, it's important to be informed if you're going to be a smart shopper.

For starters, knowing what you're going to use your cell phone for will save you a lot of money. If you're just text messaging and making phone calls, you don't need anything fancy. If you want to check your email, update your Facebook, and play games, you'll need to look at a higher-quality, more complex cell phone.

Pick a provider who offers a plan that fits your needs. How many minutes do you think you will use? Do you text message? Will you need to use the internet on your cell phone? All of these things will determine how much money you're going to spend. Some companies offer plans for just phone calls, while others offer unlimited plans that include texting, internet, and calls.

When you get to the store, play with the devices. You'll never know if you like a cell phone until you actually try it. After you pick the one you like, ask about insurance and repair. Having a cheap insurance plan that might cost five dollars a month is much cheaper than buying a new cell phone if something should happen.
