Determining what kind of phone service you want is not so easy anymore.
There are lots of choices to make: local phone servic e, long distance
phone service, cellular phone service, calling cards, and voice over IP
(VoIP) are just some of the choices we have to make. Does it make more
sense to just have a cellular phone, or is VoIP best for you? Or, should
you stick with the traditional land line phone service? Well, the answer
is...it depends. Here are some interesting facts about cellular phone
service.

Did you know that a cellular phone is basically a radio? To be precise,
it is actually a radio transmitter and receiver. A cellular phone is
essentially a two-way radio transceiver that patches into the telephone
system via a cellular network of base stations. The antenna of a cellular
phone is the phone's primary source of radio frequency, and the quality
of the signal depends on your phone, the distance to the source (usually
a tower), and other factors which may affect radio transmissions.

What kind of service is best for you? First, understand that, for the
most part, you will need to enter into a contract with the servic e
provider. In other words, a cellular phone is typically provided with a
service contract so caution is advised that you think about what kind of
use your cell phone will get and to sign up for the appropriate service
plan.

Trying to decide which mobile phone service is right for you can be very
difficult. But there is another option: if you do not want a lengthy
agreement, opt for prepaid mobile phone program. The prepaid cellular
phone is an alternative to a monthly cellular phone plan. Basically, you
pre-pay for your service (like a calling card). When you near the end of
the amount of minutes you've paid for, you either just discontinue using
it or buy more time (minutes).
While the cellular phone is mostly made up of plastics, it is run by
several powerful computer chips. Each cellular phone is assigned a unique
ESN, which is automatically transmitted to the cellular tower station
every time a cellular call is placed. All that means is that the cellular
phone is even unleashing us from telephone wires. This is hi-tech in
motion.

But if you want to buy a new cellular phone but don't know where to begin
researching, look for wireless phones and cell phone plans based on plan
features or usage. What kind of cellular phone should you buy? Well,
that's where that research on your part comes in, just like picking the
right service does. And, there are lots of choices to make. For example,
a camera phone is a cellular phone that also has picture taking
capabilities. There are also video phones available. There are games,
organizers, Bluetooth technology. The list grows daily. In fact, picking
a cellular phone is almost a science in itself. For more help with your

ringtones available now, you never have to wonder whose cellular phone is
ringing. And after all, to be stylish you want a ringtone that not only
is unique but defines your personality.

So go forth and do your research and find the best service for you. Talk
