Hi I'm Ben from the Cellphone Broker in San Jose, California. Today I'm going to show you how to buy a cellphone. There's a couple of things you need to consider when purchasing a cellphone. You need to consider how much you're going to be using it, where you live so that you get the best coverage and also what type of cellphone that you're looking for, what kind of features, a lot of phones have cameras, Bluetooth feature which allows you to make a wireless connections to a headset. You can also get Internet on a lot of phones, but then again a lot of phones don't support some of those features so make sure that you do your research and get the kind of phone that you're looking for that has the features that you need. Also, like I said, you need to consider the right wireless coverage. So let's say if you're getting Sprint, you're getting NexTel, you're getting Verizon, you're getting AT&T, go to their website or go to their store and checkout what their coverage map looks like to make sure that it has coverage in the areas that you go most when you're at work, when you're at home, when you go visit your grandparents somewhere, make sure that you'll be covered in that area. You also need to consider the amount of minutes that you'll be using per month. So a lot of companies start off their rate plans at 450 minutes and go all the way up to unlimited minutes of use per month. So if you're only going to be using your cellphone a little bit, then just get the lowest rate plan and stick with it. If you want to use your phone a lot, if you want to use it as your primary phone, you make a lot of phone calls, then make sure that you go with an unlimited plan or something with the higher amount of minutes otherwise you'll get charged a lot of overages. And overages can range from 10 cents per minute up to 50 cents per minute so that adds up at the end of the month when you get your bill. Also check out how much it costs. Right now Spring offers a 99 dollar plan and that includes unlimited minutes, unlimited text messaging and a bunch of other stuff. So that's a pretty good deal when AT&T only offers that 99 dollars for unlimited minutes. So check it out and see what works best for you.
