How to choose from a variety of cell phone prices   

Cell phone prices can vary from one carrier to another. However, it shouldn’t be the only determinant used in mobile phone buying decisions. The best way to choose a new cell phone is to decide what is the main purpose of the cell phone you are interested in purchasing? Do you want to use it only to make phone calls and send simple texts? Then you don’t need to purchase a fancy more expensive model. If you want to use the Internet, take high quality pictures and make videos, then a more expensive smartphone might be the perfect choice for you.

 My husband considered many of these alternatives before choosing the cell phone model that was right for him. He was used to using a landline phone. Venturing into the arena of mobile phone technology was a new experience and adventure for him. His sister showed him her cell phone model and suggested that he purchase one for emergencies to take with him when he goes on his long walks.

AARP members have access to the best cell phone prices

It took him many months and visits to various store displays before he made his purchasing decision. He joined AARP for the Consumer Cellular discounts. AARP members receive five percent off the monthly rates. The next decision he had to make was to choose between the Doro flip phone model and the Consumer Cellar 101 model.

I brought up that I would like to take videos and we looked at some smartphone models in the store. However, after asking the sales clerk a few questions, I decided that it would be better to purchase a camcorder to use for taking videos.

At a Consumer Cellular display, my husband looked at both models. He thought the Doro model was better for seniors. However, after comparing it with the Consumer Cellular 101 model he decided he liked that model better. The Consumer Cellular keyboard was easier for him to read.

He ordered his new cell phone on line after deciding that the model he wanted was the best price. After he received his new cell phone in the mail, he read the instruction manual. He charged his new phone and looked at many of the online tutorials at the Consumer Cellular website to learn how to use his new cell phone.
