Black Friday Cell Phone Deals 2012

Black Friday is here once again, and stores are going to war to get customers to choose their store over the competition's.  With many stores now opening at 8 P.M. THURSDAY, Black Friday is beginning to take over Thanksgiving as the main focus of the day.  But if you aren't into standing in line for hours or sprinting into stores to be sure to get what you need, there are deals online that are just as good if not better in many cases.  Today we wanted to let you know about some amazing Black Friday cell phone deals that are up to 70% off the normal price and can be ordered from the comfort of your home.

Amazon is running Black Friday Lightning Dealsall day and customers are "virtually" lining up every hour to grab these deals.  The deals are only available in limited quantities and you have to join a waitlist after they are gone to still have a chance to get the deal....that's how hot these deals are.

Below we have listed just a few of the super deals on individual phones for Black Friday with some going for as low as a penny!  Check out phones like the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX, Galaxy S 3, Nokia Lumia 920, and many more.  Of course there are deals for all major carriers including AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Spring, T-Mobile, and many others.  Keep checking back for even more deals as this is only the beginning of the sales weekend and cell phone deals won't get any better than this time of year.

Wednesday, July 04, 2012 Updated Cell Phone Sales Website and Customer Service

Friends at pass along this new post on their official blog about the Updated UltraCellSaver Website and Mission Statement. In short, owners of UCS, which has focused on cell phone upgrades and helping customers transition to new AT&T Wireless plans over the last 6 years, have recognized some issues with the quality of their website recently and are working hard to improve the experience of their users. In addition, they want to re-dedicate their mission to customer service.

We have sent plenty of traffic to UCS over the years and will continue to do so. In the world of big online cell phone dealers, they have always stood out in providing unique service to their visitors. For example, if you go to many of the top online cell phone sites, AT&T phones just disappeared without a trace. UCS worked to continue to offer information and resources for ATT customers and continue to offer ATT upgrades. They also provide information on specific types of plans and features instead of just trying to sell cell phones without regards to the needs of customers. I also know that the owners will personally take time to answer inquiries and put together customized wireless package quotes.

I hope the website update goes well.

ATT Lumia 900 Phone Out of Stock with Amazon and AT&T

Update: The Black Nokia Lumia 900 for AT&T IS in stock ( see bottom of post).

This article refers to a report that the CYAN model is selling out. The new AT&T Lumia 900 smartphone made by Nokia for use on ATT Wireless service has been all over the radio and tv commercials lately. It looks like all the promotion of the Lumia 900 is working. It looks like the Nokia Lumia 900 for AT&T is selling so well it is already out of stock with Amazon wireless and directly from AT&T wireless. 

One big different between the Nokia Lumia 900 and a lot of the other hot new smartphones, the Lumia 900 for AT&T is a Windows based phone on the Windows OS operating system. As Matthew Miller of ZDNET wrote this morning, the Lumia 900 looks like a success for Nokia. He also has a lot of good things to say about the Nokia Lumia 900 in particular as well as Windows Phone software in general. He believes that as more people try out Windows Phone, they will that they really like it. 

 Over at Amazon Wireless, the Cyan model of the Nokia Lumia 900 4G Windows Phone AT&T is currently backordered, with availability expected in 8-9 days. However, the BLACK Lumia is in stock. See below for more phone details and ordering information.

Tablets vs. Smartphones: Where is Technology Headed?

All the current buzz about the iPad 3 got me thinking about technology and how all these devices have become a part of most people's every day lives.  The iPad really got the whole tablet movement going, but now there are plenty of alternatives out there when it comes to tablets.  

All of this doesn't mean smartphones have slowed down in the least, as iPhones are also just as hot and almost every other company has tons of smartphone options that are huge sellers.  Being tablets are pretty much a hybrid of a smartphone and a laptop, where do these devices stand as technology continues to advance?

To me it has always seemed that tablets were just bigger versions of smartphones.  Same touchscreen, same basic functions, just a larger screen that made games and videos/movies more appealing.  Now there are keyboards and stands that turn tablets into laptops basically, so tablets have really turned into "everything devices."  The main factor here is size.  Tablets are great to pull out a home or any place where you can sit down and relax for a while, but when someone is on the go, the smartphone is still the go-to device when it comes to convenience.

It seems like the size factor will be the main reason tablets don't fully take over as the top media device.  The main improvement of the iPad 3 that I've heard about is how vibrant the screen is, which makes it appealing for customers that enjoy throwing a movie on anywhere in your house or a hotel, but it's still too big to haul around and use in the car or while walking around a public place.  While the size factor is there, it does seem like the iPad is moving toward being as smartphone-like as possible, even adding features such as a camera on later versions. 

Maybe I"m wrong, maybe there is a hybrid device that will come along and do away with the need for a phone, laptop, tablet, PC, etc.  I don't think the tablet is it, not yet at least.  Phones are the option for needing something portable, but can't deliver the big screen for movies that is the appeal of tablets.  Tablets do lack the one basic thing that started it all, which is talking.  No one is going to hold a tablet to their ear and try to have a conversation with anyone, so phones still have that over tablets, but then again we are inching closer and closer to a world that only communicates through texting/Skype/Facebook etc.

What device do you use/prefer?  Do u still see a need for both a smartphone and a tablet?

Verizon Droid Cell Phone Reviews

Since starting this blog, we have noticed a great deal of interest in cell phone reviews. Our old wireless commerce site specialized in Cingular, which became AT&T Wireless. We intended to use this blog to highlight online deals on AT&T phones and service plans.
Over time, the focus of wireless providers has changed. AT&T has focused on the Apple iPhone and its subsequent updates- like The iPhone 4s. Of course, that makes a lot of sense. Millions of people have iPhones, and it will probably always be the "cool" phone to own. However, Apple's exclusive arrangement with AT&T and focus on developing a handset that was much more than a phone led to innovation within other manufacturers and carriers. While the old BlackBerry smartphone has declined in popularity, especially for personal use, the Droid line of smartphones has become quite a success. Verizon Wireless has led the way in this regard.

Now the majority of our visitors are not just looking for good deals- they are looking for Cell Phone Reviews. And more times than not, they are looking for reviews of Verizon Cell Phones and/or Droid smartphones.

Our most recent review post here was a Motorola Droid Razr Review.

Here are some other online Droid reviews that might be of interest to our readers:

Droid RAZR Maxx Review at TechCrunch
( We hear it has quite the battery life)
Motorola Droid 4 Verizon Review
(The battery isn't great and neither is the camera, apparently)

Take a look at those links for some recent Droid Cell Phone Reviews.

Verizon Droid RAZR Buy One Get One Free Sale

Verizon Wireless has been running a Buy One Get One Free Droid Razr or Droid Razr Maxx deal on their website. 

What are the specifics? Is this a good deal? Let's take a look. The new Droid Razr has been in the news a lot over the last 3-4 months and we have posted about the return of the razr, the attack of the show droid razr review, the release of the Motorola Droid Razr, and the one penny Droid sale

Through the Verizon Wireless website right now, you can buy one Droid Razr and get one free. The cost of a Droid Razr Maxx is $299.99 and the Droid Razr 16 GB is $199.99. So you have a choice of purchasing 2 Droid RAZR MAxx phones for $299.99 or 2 Droid 16 GB for $199.99. If you need 2 phones for your family plan, that works out to $150 per Razr Maxx or $100 for each Razr 16 GB. 

Is it a Good Deal? Well, if you need 2 phones and normally buy directly from Verizon Wireless at their store retail price, you are essentially getting a free phone. The only question is if you can get a better deal somewhere else on the total cost of 2 Droid Razr phones. Source: Verizon Wireless offer:
