Unlocked Cell Phones

Posted by Charles | July 10, 2008 .

Ever since carriers started locking cell phones claiming that it is necessary to subsidize the cost of the phones, there has been a lot of discontent what with consumers feeling arm-twisted. At a time when designers are coming with better and trendier phones to serve people’s tastes, locking them is erasing the definition of a SIM (Subscriber Identification Module). That a carrier might agree to unlock the phone upon request, sometime in the future, even for a fee, remains a distant dream.

Unlocking cell phones on our own following hacking instructions online is not very appealing as a phone that is unlocked improperly can be rendered inoperable. Hence, the demand for unlocked cell phones purchased from a third party vendor in their original, unlocked state has been on the rise. The downside is that the additional fee charged brings back their price close to full retail in many occasions.

Nevertheless, there are a few stores, that can be found online, which specialize in selling unlocked phones. Music phones, PDA phones, Video phones are all being sold in unlocked state. All you need to do is transfer the SIM card from your current phone. And they are coming with attractive additional service plans, like 100% Parts and Labor Coverage.

Don’t let the carriers locking phones dishearten you from buying the phone of your choice. Consider the option of unlocked cell phones.
