Unlocked smartphones are a bit of a game changer. Normally when you buy a phone, it's already attached to a carrier. Should you ever want to switch providers, or pass your phone on to someone else who has a different service, it's an issue.

Unlocked Smartphones are Getting More Popular
When I get a new phone, it's usually not because my current one is broken. It's due to the fact that I cannot resist shiny new upgrades when it comes to gadgets. I use the excuse that I am a blogger, so it's my duty to have the newest devices. 😉 I like to give my “old” phone to someone else. Sometimes it's a challenge to find someone that can use a phone and has the same carrier.
A lot of people don't know that unlocked smartphones exist. As more people find out about them, they are gaining popularity. Many users enjoy the freedom of an unlocked phone when it comes to choice of models, carriers, or plans. Learn more about unlocked smartphones here.
