Choosing Service Plans
The number and variety of service plans and cell phones offered can be daunting. As you compare service and equipment, consider the following:
- Where and how often you travel may narrow your options - Local plans may be perfect for someone who seldom leaves town, but these plans sometimes charge extra for long distance and international calls. Also calls made overseas require a different type of cell phone than those most often used in the United States, so be sure you choose a phone that is compatible with your calling needs.
- More than one digital network exists to support cellular phone service - Some phones will only work with one digital network. Be sure to review each vendor's coverage map for their particular network to make sure it includes the areas in which you most often travel. It is possible to choose a cell phone that works on more than one digital network.
- Take a little time to research - Cellular phone service comparison web sites (like www.letstalk.com) may help you narrow your options further. The easiest way to find these web sites is to type "cellular phone service comparison" into your favorite search engine. And if you find a cellular phone that you like, a search on its name and model number will often lead to customer reviews.
- Vendor representatives can help you choose the right plan for you - If you're too impatient to read reviews and service plan descriptions, consider contacting one of our vendor representatives. See our vendor information below for a sales representative's phone and email contact information.
