Why You Should Consider an Unlocked Phones

Purchasing a smart phone and “leasing” or “making payments” thru your cell phone service provider is something I’ve done time and time again. It adds up significantly, and in the  last few years as we’ve added 2 more smart phones to our plan – I realized quickly that the best way to grab ahold of managing an affordable cell phone bill – is to purchase an unlocked phone.

When we added the 2 additional lines to our cell phone bill – we used unlocked smart phones that we purchased out right. This saved us between $20-40 each month PER phone.

Yes, it’s a little more upfront, but now the power is in my hands and I am not locked into a long term contract with a cell phone provider. If rates hike, I can move providers and that right there is worth the money out of pocket up front.
