Cellular Phone Features: What You Need to Know

Choosing a cellular phone has become a crucial event in modern society. A cellular phone must identify with your personna and associate with your current job and daily demands. While the earlier cellular phone focused on communication, it seems that current phones tend to glorify entertainment. Cellular phones have progressed quite a bit over the past few years, and the newer models are equipped with a variety of features, ranging from digital cameras to multimedia gaming. It is essentially up to the consumer to take into account all of the options, practical and irrational, and decide what is best. With such a wide variety of choices and features available, it is no wonder that so many are overwhelmed by selecting a cellular phone!

Bluetooth is a wireless method for electronic devices to communicate with each other. It is now a basic element used in cellular phones, making it simpler for individuals to talk on the phone while driving. Bluetooth also offers a headset to attach to your cellular without the bothersome wires. Voice Dialing is also becoming another standardized option. This enables you to say a name that has been entered in your address book into the cell phone, and the phone will instinctively find the number and instantly dial it for you. Both Bluetooth and Voice Dialing were designed in hopes of not only making driving easier, but also a bit more secure.

Once considered a rare and extra feature, text messaging is readily attainable on numerous cellular phones. This type of messaging allows the user to send brief sections of text to other cell phones. There is also a new feature called multimedia messaging. This permits the user to attach audio, video, and images to the outgoing text message. A few of the newer cellular phones are intended chiefly for recreational purposes. The phones are primarily used to play music files, downloaded video and movies. Check with your provider because some will charge for the use of both features.

Are you in the market to buy a camera phone? Just like purchasing a digital camera, you need to consider the types of photos you are going to take. Top cell phone makers such as Nokia, Samsung, and Motorola have had a dramatic rise in profits since their camera phones have popped onto the scene. Some phones offer built in zoom, while others have a 30 second to one minute movie feature. However, there is a downside to the camera phone. A majority of the phones tend to produce very poor-quality pictures because of their low resolution of one megapixel or less. If you want to snap better images, you need to consider a phone containing a camera with 3 or more megapixels.

Still feeling overwhelmed? Go to your local wireless provider and ask an agent to show you some of the current cellular phones and explain the features in detail. Maybe seeing a phone in person will give you a greater understanding of what suits your personality and will accommodate your overall lifestyle.

    Who are the best cellular phone providers for service area, cust. service, pricing, and phone features?
    Currently have Verizon and have been very happy with both the service area and customer service. Expensive though and I’m considering changing providers when my contract is up in a few months. Any suggestions?
    Any company you would recommend against ever getting?

    You gotta remember. "You get what you pay for"
    expensive price = good service
    cheap prices = cheap service

    T-Mobile is probably the cheapest, and I never had a problem with coverage. Also with T-Mobile, if you have a quad-band GSM phone, you can use your service from other countries if you need to call back to USA, or anywhere else. No longer have, them, though, only because I owe them a lot of $$ from when some1 used my phone while I was in Canada last summer.

    I think T-Mobile is the best. Check out their website.

    Well you’re going to get a ton of different opinions but here’s my two cents. I like Sprint…I live in a large city and the service is better than any other provider around our area. Also, Sprint has a large digital broadband area (3G) so if you use your phone as a wireless hub Sprint may be who you’re looking for. They have pretty good pricing, comparable to Cingular & Verizon. Their customer service is what made me switch. Whenever I have a problem it’s always taken care of the same day. I’m happy with my service and just recently renewed my contract.

    Good luck!

    im gonna have to agree.. verizon has always been good.. they are nation wide.. i have been a customer for a long time.. and now a employee.. still like the service.. .love the phones(lg enV) it is kinda expensive but ou get what you pay for..

    i would stay with verizon.. they are the best.. but if you really want to change.. sprints customer service sucks.. they are rude too.. and t-mobile sucks as well.. not just customer service but there coverage area..
