The do's and don'ts when buying a new mobile
This page is all about the do's and dont's for buying a new mobile, knowing which type is best for you is more important than many people think!
smartphone or back to basics?
When buying a new mobile nowadays, it is important to look at what’s available - but not to overestimate or underestimate the level of features.....etc that are right for you. One key decision is whether you go for the more pricey but feature enriched Smartphone or a more basic, generally cheaper model. Another option available is the touch screen availabilities of many phones on the market today.
Examples of smartphones include the iphone and the blackberry. Although both high in quantities of advanced features and capabilities, They are not for everyone. The iphone is really great for app lovers and people who like the idea of being able to organise and even shop direcly from your phone with relitive ease. The only negative to this phone is that It is not to be underestimated - i have have known just as many people who have liked this phone as have loathed this phone. Touch screen isn't for everyone, but if you are used to this type of techology it is top of it's class.
The blackberry range, dispite becoming very popular and also being feature enriched is also not to be underestimated. The computer style keyboard, keypad layout makes texting simple for many people but by contrast has also annoyed many of my friends. This is because it does take some getting used to, nevertheless a top phone - with a price tag to match.
If the idea of a Smart phone is a little too intimidating; I have found it is sometimes easier just to go back to basics with a basic, relaible mobile. In my experience Nokia are the best company for these ( although they do make more complex phones too,) they still sell cheep, reliable phones with minimual but the necessary features. Even some of their cheepest phones still give you a decent camera and a few games. Definately worth concidering.
PAY as you go or CONTRACT?
I belive that for more expensive, high end smartphones are generally better on contract, although you pay a little more costs are spread out over a number of months. You can even receive free minutes, texts or web - great for you socialites.
If chosing a cheeper more basic phone i find it is better to get a pay as you go sim- this way you are not tied down to any fixed payment or direct debit. You own your phone from the start !
