#6 – Choosing the best carrier and contract
Don’t forget to explore carrier and contract options when you’re buying a new smartphone. Excitement over owning a new phone can be greatly reduced when you find out that service in your area is not that great. So, make sure to check coverage of all carriers in your area and opt for the best one. Of course, pay attention to the contract details as well. Certain carriers might have better contracts, but don’t go with them for this reason alone, especially not at the expense of the coverage in your city.
