There are multiple decisions to make before venturing to a store to purchase a new cell phone. Especially if you're thinking of buying a fancy new smartphone, you will need to plan which store to go to in the first place. It's wise to take the time to determine which phone to buy through internet comparisons. Your effort will help you decide ahead whether or not to buy a smartphone (and all the internet capabilities they deliver) along with which carrier and exactly which plan will fit your needs in the future.
To help you make a decision, as a preliminary, try adding a few pieces of data into this website to find the most recent percentage data of cellphone users in the United States using smartphones as opposed to regular cell phones, as well as the most popular makes. For a greater worldview of cell phone use, try reading this site for statistics at getjar.com.
To help you decide which carrier to use, you can search local cell phone towers close to the areas you will usually be using at a website at cellreception.com. The site also very usefully rates the effectiveness of wireless providers, T-Mobile, Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and Nextel. A table of consumer reviews of providers is linked here. You can check with individual providers for their best plans online at wirelessguide.org.
In addition, this site published by CNet lists the highest-radiation cell phones in the United States. See where yours falls in the list by manufacturer and model. Hope yours isn't second in the list like mine is.
We all have different needs for phones, and making the decision easier is the point of this entry post. Mulling over the current options available for new cell phones had me checking out websites. I'll need one a new one for my new career as a real estate agent with Keller Williams Realty.
