Online Giant Enters The World Of Wireless Technology

Recently one of the world's largest online retailers entered the world of wireless technology in a big way. For a while now they have been selling unlocked phones now though they are trying their hand at cell phones with carrier service included. For those who don't know an unlocked phone is different from a standard phone in that it has no restrictions on which network it can be used on. They will continue carrying those but are making a big push into service plans by partnering with the biggest names in the business including AT&T, Verizon, T-mobile and Sprint. They have all the top Smart Phones including the ever popular Android powered phones. The only phone that seems to be missing is the Apple iPhone.

What really sets them apart  though is the wide range of services and ways to shop. You can shop by  Features Offered, Service Carrier, Price, Most Popular and more. You can upgrade your plan or start a new one all online without ever seeing a sales rep. The prices are given without the need for a rebate program. The phones are then sent express mail in two days. They do away with the hassle of comparing prices and talking to different carriers you can now do it all in one place. They also provide product details and customer reviews help greatly in researching a new purchase. In addition there are many promotional prices and incentives to buy (but you have to open an account to see them).

They have a great customer service with a toll free 24 hour customer service line to answer any questions you may have. They also have an extensive help section with a  FAQ that answers just about any question that you could have about cell phones.

Another great feature is the Android App Store where you can purchase and download all the newest Apps and Games for the Android platform. There are also tons of free downloads with one paid App featured as free each day. So you can drop by everyday and see what's new.
