Buying a phone these days is hard work.
Buying a phone these days is hard work. We went to the AT&T store and was looking for a nice easy phone for my Dad. We were even looking to possibly do it as a family plan. In the store, we were told that if we did a family plan we'd not end up saving a lot of money. But then later using the AT&T web site we realized that the plans we were quoted was above the minute plans we used.
We ended up ordering a phone online to add it to our plans.
At my office I have the folks well trained enough that they ask me now what phones will sync with the office. But lemme tell you, it's not easy these days trying to figure out what phones do and don't. iPhone yes. Some of the LG's yes. Some no. Androids yes... at least I think so.... Windows mobile, of course.
So while it was a good thing to see the phones in person and know which ones we wanted to get for Dad, we ended up finding out more about the data plans and family bundling online. Phone shopping is still way too complicated for something that should be lots easier.
