An honest guide to buying new and refurbished phones

When it comes to getting a new phone, you have options. Don't settle for buying a device from a carrier, because the reality is those good deals often come with major hidden costs and gotchas. For the most flexibility and the best deal all around, opt for buying a universally unlocked device from a reliable third-party (such as Amazon) or directly from the manufacturer (Apple, Samsung, etc.). Trust us, there's no better feeling than being a free agent when you can take your device to whichever carrier treats you the best. Still have questions about purchasing a device?

Where to buy a new unlocked phone

We recommend our customers buy new unlocked cell phones directly from the manufacturer. Device manufacturers such as Apple, Samsung ,Motorola , LG , HTC , and Google may offer excellent financing options (payment plans) that do not lock you to any particular carrier/network so long as you purchase a universally unlocked phone.

Please double check device details before purchasing as links may change! Unfortunately, because of variables outside our control, we cannot guarantee a refurbished phone will work with Reach Mobile even if the phone description meets the criteria.
