Top 5 Things You Must Know Before Buying Used blackberry 8830

With the convenience of the internet, everything can be delivered to your doorstep. With this easy access, people seem to utilize the internet more than leaving their homes to shop. When exploring your options to buy a cell phone online, you will see a wide range of new, refurbished and used cell phones to choose from. Make sure to educate yourself and take the time to read and learn about each offer open to you.

5. Beware of Empty Promises

Many Cellular companies (even the Big Names) will attempt to sway you one way or another when it comes to extras, accessories, and unbelievable deals. Research what you WANT and what you NEED in a phone--but most importantly--what you can AFFORD. If a deal seems underhanded or unclear, it probably isn't for you. Know how much data plans, activation fees, etc. cost before jumping into a 50% or "free" deal when buying cell phones or you might wind up paying more than you bargained for.

4. Know the Networks

This seems like a no-brainer, but it's easy to get wrapped up in the extravagance of new technology and completely overlook the fact that you've chosen the wrong network. iPhones, for example, are currently specifically for AT&T, unless they are refurbished or unlocked phones. The U.S. currently has several major players in the network game, but they don't all operate the same way. Do some network research before buying a cell phone to determine whether your area has a good level of network support.

3. Know where to shop

Welcome to the future. You can buy cell phones and cell phone accessories essentially anywhere you go; from 7-11 to a Mall kiosk to all of the retail giants. On one hand, this seriously opens up your market and the consumer (you) are given plenty of freedom to look for the best deals. But let's stick with buying a cell phone online for now. You already know which companies you trust--it's natural to have an unparalleled reassurance when it comes to the big boys: Best Buy, Sprint, Verizon, AT&T, etc.

However, if you're looking for the best deal on the web, your hunting skills need to be fine-tuned. Don't simply settle for the first site that advertises "Savings." Browse around for awhile--and if you find your "Dream Deal," then start to research the company itself. How much background do they have in the business and how is their business ranked/trusted by other consumers?

2. Inspect the Features

This is where a lot of online buyers have trouble. Various cell phone models have drastically different features. In a market where every single new development is a chance to one-up the competition, you can expect a lot of small variations. For example, if you want a mobile device with an exceptional camera, make sure you look at the megapixel number in the product description. Many phones (even some BlackBerry models) have extremely weak Camera specs--or, in the case of the BlackBerry 8830 World Edition--no Camera at all! There are tons of tiny elements that could make or break your decision when it comes to going with any kind of model phone. Do you want to be able to access the internet? Do you want a keyboard or touch-screen? Are you in the market for a basic phone or tons of cool applications?

And this brings us to our final step:

1. Know what you want

When shopping for technology in person, you are given a unique advantage. You have the opportunity to research what you're looking for in depth, and then discuss with a (sometimes) knowledgeable individual the specifications you are looking for.

Perhaps they salesperson will divulge some useful information that you hadn't picked up on, or maybe you will impress the tech nerd with how much you've learned. Either way, this is a concept that falls particularly short when doing your shopping online. While it is true that many sites have a LIVE CHAT or provide you with the ability to contact someone in the company for questions, you will never truly know how you like the phone until you're used to its shape, feel, features, and performance.

When buying a new or refurbished cell phone online, be sure to do thorough research. Phones can be expensive, and the more use you get out of them, the more their cost pays off. If you wind up purchasing a cell phone that you're unhappy with, it can be extremely aggravating to say the least. Know how much you use your current phone (if you have one), how much you PLAN to use your phone on a day-to-day basis, and then plan for emergencies and overuse.
