Every end of the month, I am always broke. But deep inside me I want to have a good cell phone. I really like to have a cell phone that can surf the internet with the wifi connection and so on. The problem is that most of this cell phones with the high tech features are too expensive. How to get a up to date cell phone that is not going to cost me a lot of money?

When you start a new contract you may be able to get a reasonably priced phone what you need to consider is the monthly cost for the data usage. There are many that start as low as $70 per month but that alone would be for phone use and internet and not including the texting features. Best route would be to shop around and do comparison with all carriers including what each component would cost. This would give you an idea if it is worth it or not.

alokijon, You may want to consider signing up a price plan for your high end mobile phone or rather smart phone. Buying these phones individually will be costly and impractical because at the end of the day you will still need to subscribe to a cellular phone network provider. You may want to check it out with your local provider for now.

Buy from the internet. There are sites available in your country that you can sell your stuffs to. I'm sure there are users that are selling their second hand phones there. Be careful of scammers though. It's better to do meet ups than shipping the merchandise and electronically transferring your money.

In my county you can buy from "dealers" that sit all day in the vegetable market all kinds of phone. I do not encourage this act, but you can really buy a very high end cell in remarkable condition with a very low price. some of my friends but from those dealers and were satisfied of their products. Now the ethical problem is implied. It is good to buy from those which steal?

I have had both kinds of phones, and frankly, I like the ones that are more expensive, but not to much. They seem to be made better, and since I have a samrtphone, it has lots of features. That is what I look for when I buy a phone. I do a lot of reviews on the phone I am thinking about buying so that I know what I am looking for in a phone, and if ti has the features I am looking for after watching the reviews, then I will buy it, but it id doesn't then I will do a review on other phones to see which one would work the best for me. by the way, my phone is a Mytouch 4G from T0mobile, and it is a great phone. It has a back and front facing camera which is used for video chatting, which I have done a few times with my daughter and oldest grandson. It also has blutooth, gps, wifi, and of course the internet, which I will access several times a week. I can also mylot from it and that is one of the biggest reasons for buying it. Take care, and have a very good day.

I suggest you to buy China made cellphone where they are cheap and have good features. You can able to surf the internet...but take note. Some that are made in China, cellphone is not a good quality but really good for those who did not have a budget to buy expensive cellphone...
