Cell Phones With No Contract Strike Back

By Elektra Ford

As an increasingly popular trend, it isn't without reason that many people are choosing to buy cell phones with no contract. Though at a glance this may hardly seem all that useful, cell phones with no contract confer a wide variety of benefits for those who know how to make use of them. Pretty generally, most cell phones come bound to a contract with a service provider. For example, iPhones can only be purchased with a contract with AT&T.

This is perhaps chief one of the reasons why one would prefer no contract cell phones: because cell phones are usually bound to a service provider, a cell phone with no contract allows a consumer to buy a product without the unwanted burden of a contract with which one might not agree.

Cell phone service providers offer a wide variety of terms and conditions that vary among subscriptions and the type of plan purchased by a consumer, so the obvious choice would be to choose whichever service provider offers the incentives most beneficial to you. Since product lines are bound to certain service providers nonetheless, one is often forced to choose between the specific phone they want, or the specific plan they want - and can rarely simply get both. However, cell phones with no contract permit you to purchase a cell phone and simply apply to it the services of whatever company you prefer.

Cell phones with no contract are basically the same as unlocked cell phones. When purchased, they have no network with which they can make use of, but they allow the user to choose exactly which provider is best for them. If you specifically wanted an iPhone, for instance, but have little use for the services offered by AT&T, then buying an unlocked iPhone would allow you to benefit most from the features for which you've specifically chosen that phone, and also would permit you to choose another service provider which will bring you the greatest benefit. The variance between different service providers is vast, and there are different plans amongst different providers that cater to almost anyone's needs.

The first and most critical thing to consider is whether or not a service provider actually provides service in your area. Verizon and AT&T both provider coverage to most of the continental United States, but there are remote places that still remain uncovered, and a service provider will do you no good if you are in a location where they literally cannot provide service. Billing and services is another issue. If you hardly ever talk on the phone but make extensive use of applications and texting, then a service provider that offers those features cheap or for free will be much more to your benefit than one that focuses more on calling minutes, family plans, and things of that nature.

Simply speaking, cell phones with no contract afford you the freedom of choice.
