Hmmm i was looking into buying my "future" cell phone possibly over the internet, cause i thought it would be cheaper (samsung a900) but i "unlocked" phones sparked my curiosty. so this turns into a 45 min browsing through the internet for cell phones i have never seen and learning about GSM and unlocked phones. I currently have sprint and have seen tmobile and cingulair and heard not the best things about em, but that u can go allover the place and get reception with these unlocked phones or that when u get one of these unlocked phones u have to get a sim card to get your own service and that these unlocked phones arent compatible w/ sprint.... so i dont know what to do.... i dont think i will be doing much international travel AND tmobile and cingulair coverage? i dunno or should i stay with sprint? i dont know, what do you recommend? go with an unlocked phone with gsm and go with cinguliar or tmobile? or stay with sprint? i dont know i would really appreciate some input or some personal experience, with GSM, cingulair or tmobile or those sim cards, not to sure what to do at the moment....
any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
thank you
