Choose Your Own Phone!
In a previous post, I addressed the fact that you do not have to choose from the limited selection of GSM phones that i wireless sells. Nokia, Motorola, Sony Ericsson and Samsung all sell unlocked GSM phones on their company websites. This New York Times Article provides more detail on the issues involved with buying new, unlocked GSM phones, and some suggestions for customers who want more choice in the one device that comes with them wherever they go. Additional distribution outlets mentioned in the article include the manufacturers' company-owned stores and independent retailers such as CompUSA. If you do choose to go this route, you will need i wireless' GPRS & MMS settings so that you can properly program your device once you buy it.
