I like the Motorola brand. I have always liked their phones. The problem in the past was that I could not choose the cell carrier of my choice. When I bought my phone, I had to use the carrier that was assigned to it. My phone was locked into the service and I could not switch without getting a new phone. The service that I had was not the best either because I had a lot of dropped calls. Then I found out that special codes could be purchased to unlock these phones. I actually bought one, and it worked. I just did not like the fact that I had to pay extra to unlock something that I bought. Then, I came across another revelation. I found out that I could buy a Motorola unlocked phone. That just made all the difference in the world.
The unlocked phone allowed me to shop for the best carrier. I was no tethered to a specific one or a specific plan. I could find the the plan that best suited my needs, and I could use my unlocked phone on it. I could put in my SIM card and the phone would work, just like that.
The Motorola unlocked phone was the best I ever made in a phone. I would never go back to a locked phone again. Why restrict my choices? I think all consumers should be informed of their freedom of choice in cell carriers. I think that would make the cell service industry even more competitive, and perhaps it can improve their service.
I encourage all of my friends to get a Motorola unlocked phone now, or at least an unlocked phone from any manufacturer. There is no reason to lock oneself to one carrier. There are many alternatives that are better, in terms of coverage as well as a service plan. To be fair to consumers, I do not think cell phones should be locked in the first place. Limiting a customer’s purchase options just would not give the customer a very pleasant shopping experience.
At least I am glad that now, there is an option to buy an unlocked phone. I think eventually, locked phones will fall by the wayside because consumers just do not want to be locked into something that they do not want. They want the flexibility to change.
