Getting into a contract with cell phone companies for buying a smart phone is very inflexible and frustrating, when I wanted to switch cell phone company in the middle of a contract. In most cases, people including me does sign up for expensive phone plans with features which we hardly use just for the sake of getting a new phone. I believe that we could buy phones unlocked online or other places too but I just don't know and don't have the patience to look where to buy it.

I understand that it is frustrating for people to have to enter into a phone plan contract with a phone carrier company. The plans are usually expensive when you want to buy a phone with the plans. A lot of people wants the flexibility to change phone company without having to pay penalty for breaking contracts. However, some phones such as Samsung, Lg, Sony Xperia, Motorola, and blackberry requires you to enter into a contract with the phone companies in order to buy their products.

At Unlocked Android Phones, you can buy  most of the phones unlocked without any contracts with phone companies but they all come with some risk. Sometimes, the accessories provided are not original ones. The phones may not work properly in your local area or country and it is quite a hassle to return it to the seller for a refund.

I suggest buying Iphones instead because they are original products and it is fully unlocked phones. http://www.apple.com/ca/

Some new places are offering unlocked phones for sale with true original manufacturer warranty and brand new sealed units. Places like Bestbuy Canada, Walmart Canada, Staples Canada, Rogers, Fido Canada and practically all other phone carrier now sells unlocked phones. You just have to navigate to the unlocked phones section of their website and you can buy from them. Even Samsung sell unlocked phones through their own website, unlike in the past when cell phone brands would only sell through the phone carrier in Canada. Websites like Bestbuy have started to do something similar to what eBay and Amazon had been doing for many years in the past. They have created a marketplace where people can sell their own cell phone products right at bestbuy’s website. Only those who have good business standing are allowed to put up phones for sale though. Small individuals are usually screened and doesn’t make it through to putting up their products for sale.
