To buy the right cell (mobile) phone you will need to take a variety of factors into consideration. There are many cell phones available, and some are definitely better than others. Not all cell phones are intended for the same end user though. If you plan on purchasing a cell phone at a discounted price by signing a contract with a mobile phone carrier, it is important to first choose the carrier.
Factors to take into account when choosing a carrier are coverage, price, texting/web/multimedia plans, customer service ratings. Once you’ve determined a carrier, or if you will be purchasing an unlocked phone at full retail price, use a phone finder such as the one on Phone Scoop’s website (listed in External Links).
