I can’t say this any more softly than I am about to.
If you are on a contract plan for your phone with less than 5 months to go OR are out of contact but with one of the major carriers, well then, you are making a huge mistake.
- Buy a Google Nexus 4 or 5 (unlocked) for $200-$400 (depending on what you want)
- get a monthly plan (all you can eat-data/phone/text) from Straight Talk for $45
What do you get?
- the most advanced phone operating system around (Android 4.4). Yes, it’s better than iOS.
- arguably the best phone around. If not number 1, then pretty darn close
- LTE speeds (see screenshot)
The era of contract phones is over. Even the big carriers have realized this.
May as well make the move and reap the benefits.
