Unlocked phones are becoming a popular choice here in the U.S. Why? Because nothing beats the freedom of an unlocked phone when it comes to choice of models, carriers or plans.
What is an unlocked smartphone? An unlocked smartphone is a phone that isn’t tied to a specific carrier or contract. Therefore, you have the freedom to shop for the latest phones and plans as often — or as infrequently — as you like. And when it comes to international travel, unlocked phones can’t be beat.
Nothing sucks more than being locked into a cellphone contract!!! Those contracts always seem like a killer deal at the time (props to you marketing teams) & I swear, every time you sign your life away to that phone you "Just had to have" about a month later you turn on the TV and see a new phone at an even more killer price. Unfortunately for you, you just signed what seems like a million years to that phone in your hand, so unless you win the lotto to pay off all those ridiculous early termination fees, your stuck with that phone for years! That's right YEARS. By the time you qualify for an upgrade, your phone will be considered a dinosaur. You mind as well just carry a flip phone since you will be laughed at the same!
I totally get why phone companies do this. They want to control the competition, like any profitable business owner, so they can maximize their profits. Unfortunately for us, that doesn't give us, the consumers, the opportunity to save as much loot as we could, and it totally limits our choices.
Thank goodness contracts are becoming a thing of the past and Best Buy has the best options for buying an unlocked phone, and an explanation of how it even works!

Thanks for sharing this event with us. I love not having a locked phone and I am due to getting a new one, too :)
11/2/2016 05:53:02 pm
I've always done the unlocked for mostly because I hate having extra stuff on my phone that companies like to add on there. I tend to go google phones for this reason, though I like this sale and need phones for my siblings so this is awesome!!
11/2/2016 07:48:18 pm
These deals sound really good! I don't know what I would do without my smart phone. It's so useful.
11/2/2016 08:20:07 pm
It just kills me to pay $700 for a iphone right now! I have a iPhone 6Plus and I love it, but I would love to have the better camera. Crazy stuff.
11/2/2016 08:49:55 pm
I've done the phone thing two ways, with a contract and prepaid. I don't notice to much of a difference, expect in the pricing once I got a new phone. I miss the days when having a contract meant you were eligible for an upgrade at an affordable price.
11/2/2016 09:23:17 pm
Thanks for sharing this great event. Sounds like the perfect gift idea.
11/2/2016 09:30:35 pm

11/4/2016 07:13:17 am

I had no idea that was even a thing. Thank you so much for all this great information!
11/4/2016 10:36:40 pm
I've been getting my gift cards ready to start taking advantage of the holiday sales at Best Buy. I love getting my boys' electronic gifts there.
I always loved shopping at Best Buy as they have best deals when it comes to Mobiles and other electronic items. I do hate cellphone contracts so much and an unlocked smartphone would be a huge blessing for sure as they have some great benefits all the time!
11/5/2016 04:19:09 am
I've been with one company for so long I've never even heard of unlocked phones. Good to know. Thanks!
11/5/2016 05:07:57 am
Unlocked phones are great for many reasons, I love them for my son especially. That way we are not tied down to a specific contract for him. And they can be cheaper also
11/5/2016 11:06:11 pm
I think these unlocked phones keep you from having to be locked into a pricey contract. I'm headed to Best Buy to start my holiday shopping this week.
11/6/2016 12:31:40 am
I didn't know Best Buy carried unlocked phones. We buy ours unlocked also. It just makes more sense for us.
11/6/2016 09:07:40 am
I don't even really understand unlocked vs. locked. I think Verizon may not allow this for some reason? I just buy mine from the Verizon store however they come! And whenever my contract is up!
11/6/2016 09:42:50 am
I have never bought an unlocked phone but have heard they can be really useful for travel outside of the US. I didn't realize Best Buy sold them.
11/6/2016 01:20:44 pm
I've never thought of doing this but wish I did instead of being stuck in a contract. It definetely sucks being in one for 2 years with no way out. Great idea!
11/7/2016 10:39:41 am
I am not much into gadgets, especially smartphones, but I have nephews who are very interested in these! It would be nice to see what's in store, I might pick up gifts for them!
11/7/2016 01:29:11 pm
These are such great offers, I wish they were available in Canada. Definitely worth picking one up for those savings.
