So many of today’s phones have so many bells and whistles that it’s actually difficult for some individuals to figure out how to make a simple phone call! And don’t even get those same individuals started on attempting a text. You might as well be speaking in tongues when it comes to explaining the mechanics of smart phones in general to some people.
Is the New iPhone for You?
People will need to decide if the new iPhone 5 is something from which they can benefit before figuring out whether or not they’ll need to take out personal loans with which to pay for them. Some folks just want to call and text. Others not only want but need access to the internet. And then there are the apps and games. If by ‘apps’ you think we’re talking about those little before dinner snacks at the restaurant… best for you to stick with phone calls and the occasional text. No offense!
Is the iPhone Affordable?
Cell phone companies want you to buy their biggest, best phones. They are not stupid when it comes to finance either. Shop around because there is always the one company out there that is trying to beat all the other companies with special incentives. Phone trade-ins, buy one-get one, contracts, upgrades… all of these can and will come into play when new smart phone and cell service shopping. Never, ever, jump at the first offer no matter how sweet it seems if you haven’t checked around beforehand. Particularly in the case of those contracts, once you’re tied in it’s going to be a real pain to try to buy out and go with a seemingly better deal.
You’ll end up paying even more just to get out of your contract than you may have if you just toughed it out and smart shopped for your next smart phone!
