Even with people taking great care of their electronics, it is always a possibility that something could happen to that expensive smartphone that was subsidized by renewing a contract. Once, my cell phone (years ago) fell out of my pocket into a puddle – just 1 week before I was eligible for a new phone and hours before a business trip. 🙂 Fortunately, they let me upgrade at the subsidized price, but that does not happen much anymore.
If you have AT&T and need a brand new smartphone or need a phone that you can pop unto your account when selling an old phone, losing the phone, etc, you will not get a better phone deal than this. It is the Nokia Lumia 520 GoPhone and is on sale today from Amazon for only $19.99 – no contract!
This is a fully-featured smartphone that utilizes the Windows Phone software. You can use this as a stand-alone GPS unit, a MP3 player, or even a tablet like device when connected to WiFi – without having an AT&T plan. It is locked to AT&T, but you can have them unlock it for global use after 90 days on a plan or pay one of the online services for an unlock code.
If you have not maxed out your $1,500 in category spend with your Chase Freedom card, you will get 5% cash back if you use your Chase Freedom!
Do you have this phone or have experience with it? What are your thoughts?
