Cellular phones or cell phones seem to be a ‘necessity’ for a lot of people nowadays. This is the reason why different companies have special offers for cellphone users all the time. They even offer the top of the line cellphones for free as long as the customer uses their service the coming years…at least 2 years of contract. My husband does not like that. If he needs a replacement or an upgrade for his cell phone, he would usually look for an unlocked phone. It’s a little more expensive but at least he’s not tied up to a company for years. As for me, I prefer the pay as you go deals. I don’t really need a cell phone since I am WAHM and I can be reached through our home phone all the time so using the pay as you go phones is the best choice for me right now. But if I would ever need a cell phone full time, I'd probably go with unlocked phones as well. Just like my husband, I also don't like being tied down to a company for years. I just 'love' my freedom too much to do that. Kwim?
