One of the first things you should do when deciding where to buy your next smartphone is to determine your price range. Cell phones nowadays can go for as little as $60 and they can also sell for as much as $1800. If you are on a tight budget it may be a good idea to consider buying a used or refurbished phone.
There are many places to buy a good slightly used cell phone. They are widely available across the internet and can be purchased without even leaving your home.
A good place to start in your search for a new cell phone is eBay or Amazon. These are in my opinion better than other sites because most of the sellers offer delivery options so there’s no need to meet in person.
There are so many things to consider when buying a cell phone that there is no single best option. One of the most important things to consider is how much storage your new phone will have. Many of the cheaper devices will have 32 gigabytes of memory or less. This may be ok for some but I would recommend that you go no less than a 64 gigabyte model.
If you are one that likes to actually hold the phone in your hand before you buy it you may not want to buy it online. Another good option is to make your purchase from one of the big box stores like Walmart, Target, or Sams. There are also some good deals offered by the phone carriers themselves. Places like Verizon, T-mobile and AT&T sometimes offer a free phone as an incentive to sign up with one of their monthly service plans.
Stay open minded, ask a lot of questions. Take your time to shop around and I have no doubt that you’ll end up with a cell phone that is just right for you.
