Advantages of Having an Unlocked Phone
- You can switch your carrier. Is your current carrier gouging you with unexpected fees? Did you find a better deal at another company? With an unlocked phone, you are free to change your carrier anytime you like.
- You can change your SIM card whenever you like. Have you ever wanted to have a phone set up for business and another for personal use? There's no need to carry around two phones if you have two SIM cards and an unlocked phone. Alternatively, you can let a friend or family member use your phone for a while with their SIM card.
- You can travel to any country. Wouldn't it be great to use your smartphone all around the world? All you need is an unlocked phone and a local SIM card, which is easy to find and very cheap in any country. Even in Africa, you can get a SIM card on virtually every street corner. SIM cards are ubiquitous and exactly the same all around the world.
- You can take advantage of great offers. Suppose my friend Vibhu decided to open up new telecom company in India. During his promotional phase, he offers 1000 free minutes to new customers. If you have an unlocked phone, you can switch at this critical moment and benefit from the offer. If your phone were locked by a carrier, they would never allow such a thing to happen.
