An unlocked phone is a phone that you can use with any SIM card from any network carrier in the world. There are many benefits for owning an unlocked cell phone:
- With an unlocked phone you have the huge advantage of easily changing your network provider and being able to choose a better plan to suit your needs.
- You can save hundreds of dollars when traveling abroad if you have an unlocked phone. Just buy a local SIM card and start making calls at local rates, avoiding roaming charges.
- Unlocked phones tend to have higher resale prices than locked phones, and you can easily sell your unlocked device internationally.
