If you are switching cellphone carriers, you may not actually need to buy a whole new phone with your new carrier. Many cellphone companies that are competing for your business will activate a deactivated phone for you if you switch to their plans. The only way to know if your new carrier will do this is to bring in your working old phone and ask. This can obviously save you money over time, but it also cuts back on the electronic waste piling up in our homes.
