An unlocked cell phone is a device that can be used on any carrier that supports the use of that phone. By having an unlocked phone, you can save money in the long run by not being tied to long contracts with one carrier. At Walmart, you can find a wide variety of new and refurbished unlocked phones from brands like Samsung, Apple, Motorola, and more at everyday low prices.
Why get an unlocked phone?
There are several reasons why you might want to get an unlocked phone. In addition to saving money from not being tied to one carrier, if your phone gets lost, broken, or stolen, you can easily replace your phone without having to sign a new contract. If you're looking to not sign a contract at all, you can also choose from a selection of unlocked phones on a pre-paid plan. Do you travel internationally frequently? Then you'll want to pick up an unlocked GSM phone. When you're overseas, you can easily buy a new SIM card, pop it into your unlocked phone, and use it as you normally would. Just make sure that it's a GSM phone, as unlocked CDMA phones won't work in other countries.
What unlocked phone should I buy?
What kind of unlocked phone you get is up to you and your personal preference. If you're looking for an inexpensive option, consider getting a refurbished phone. They're usually an older model phone but can be cheaper than one that is new. Looking for something specific? Shop the brand categories to browse unlocked Apple iPhones, Samsung Galaxy phones, Google Pixels, and more.
