19 Jun Why Buy Cellular Phones Online Instead of the Store?
When looking to purchase cell phone service you must be aware the business is constantly changing, but I have found a few things about the industry that remains intact when it comes to getting the best cell phone deals.
You should never ever pay full price when you buy cellular phone equipment.
Normally new cell phones will cost hundreds of dollars, but companies are always willing to subsidize the cost of the newest cell phone in exchange for signing up for a new service plan. Often with rebates, you can even find free cellular phones.
Contracts can be your friend.
The best cell phone deals come when you sign a contract, and every service provider has a "grace period," usually 15 to 30 days, with which you can return your phone and cancel your service with no questions asked and no penalties.
Find a better alternative.
Most people still go to wireless stores for ease, but usually you find you have to wait an hour just to pay the highest prices to buy cellular phones. Authorized agents are paid by the carrier to bring in customers. They sign up more customers than the retail stores because they simplify the application process, and will pass on the savings with discounts on phone prices. These companies are considered to be wholesale phone providers.
Switching to a different provider will pay off.
Wireless providers sometimes will upgrade the equipment to customers who renew their contracts, but the best cell phone deals typically go to buyers establishing new accounts. With rebates, you can often get the best cheap cellular phones and free cellular phones.
The difference between the service networks is not as great as it used to be. All the major providers now have nationwide coverage and digital cellular phone quality. Although, every provider has its own unique dead spots. Check the route where you make the most calls and bringing your friends to see which signal is best. You can make a little competition out of it (like whoever has the best coverage has to buy the first round).
Most of all doing business online can sometimes be a very scary proposition, do not get burned, do your homework. There are many legitimate companies doing business strictly online unfortunately there are just as many frauds out there that just want to take your money.
