Better to buy unlocked?

Posted Jun 13, 2013 at 9:37 pm in Threads > Opinions

It is almost time for my contract to expire so I am busy looking into all the new phones but I wanted to ask you guys if it is better buy an unlocked phone without a contract and or just renew my contract.

I have been with sprint for 12 years now so I really no nothing of the “outside” world when it comes to plans and unlocked phones. I just know that generally speaking buying the phone outright and going with an unsubsidized plan is cheaper in the long run. The only requirement I have is coverage all over the United States, I travel a lot.

So I guess I am trying to get info from you guys about what works for you.
