What is an unlocked phone?
An unlocked phone is a device that is not bound to any carrier or plan. It allows you to choose your phone first and your carrier second. Upon selecting a plan, simply insert the carrier's SIM card into the phone and you're ready to go. If you decide you want to change carriers down the road or want to take an international trip, it's as simple as replacing your existing SIM card with a new SIM and activating your new plan.
What are the benefits of an unlocked phone?
Freedom: Choose the carrier with the best service or price. If you find a better deal later, you have the ability to change to a different carrier.
Travel: Take your phone internationally and use the carrier of your choice. It's as easy as inserting an active SIM card.
Selection: Choose the phone with the features you want, whether or not your carrier sells it, and get more service options without a contract.
How do I set up my unlocked phone?
The first thing you’ll need is a SIM card for your desired carrier. When activated, the SIM card will let your phone connect to your carrier’s network. If you decide to upgrade to a newer unlocked phone in the future, you can easily remove the SIM card from your old phone and put it in your new phone—just make sure you get the right size of SIM card (nano, micro, or standard) for your phone. If you want to use your phone while traveling internationally, you can easily buy a SIM card for a carrier that operates where you’re traveling. As long as it’s activated, you can just swap SIM cards when you arrive at your destination.

Top Customer Reviews
Camera: terrible quality even on highest settings. Results look fuzzy. Compared to what? iPhone 5, Galaxy S5? No. My 2006 1.3 mp flip phone camera takes better photos.
Voice command feature "Okay Google Now": incredibly sensitive with scary results. The phone would wake up & react to those words even when sitting 20 feet away while I was on the land line with tech support asking how to control that feature.
Deal breaker for me: in a settlement meeting, the phone was in my suit inside pocket, reacted to the mention of opposing counsel's name by someone else in the room and dialed his number. It took frantic repeated pressing of the power/end buttons to stop the call. Was about to drop it into a jug of water on the table to kill the call as the phone didn't react until it got the other party's voice mail. Had my jacket been on my chair in the corner, had I not heard the phone dialing out, and had the other side picked up the call, he could've listened in to the entire meeting.
We've all made or received accidental "butt dials", but this takes it to the next level as the phone could react while simply sitting on a desk. On 2 other occasions, without even saying those 3 magic words, the phone woke up and made random calls. This all happened in one day. 18hrs after turning it on, it was packaged & returned. The voice command is so sensitive, I had Verizon disable the phone number as I was afraid the phone could accidentally wake up in transit and I'd get a huge 4G data bill while it tracked its own route cross country.
Comfort: as much as every "pro reviewer" raves how comfortable the phone is to hold with its curved back and M logo dimple, I found the opposite. The thinner sides compared to the thicker back made the phone feel much less secure in my hands. But I'm 6"2 with large hands so your mileage may vary.
Pros: Fast delivery. Arrived in less than 48hrs with SIM card in place and a great easy to remember phone number. Just turned it on and was ready to go. Amazon Wireless was great with returns & tech support. Better & cheaper than Verizon store (my nearby Verizon store charges a re-stocking fee up to $75 -- on a phone that costs only $99 with a plan -- even if you return a phone even during the first 14 days. Changes the definition of "no commitment free trial period").
End Result: settled on the Galaxy S5. Turns out it too goes direct to camera by "double shaking" the phone, and it has same voice command ability by saying "Ok Google". Only difference is you first have to push the mic icon, the phone won't wake up and react to voice command when in sleep mode ... which from my above experience is a plus.
Plus better camera, in my hand feels more comfortable and slightly larger screen (tho phone is not that much bigger) makes it easier to push icons/type with my big fingers. Lastly have 2 other Samsungs & galaxy tablet so am use to Samsung's bloatware, know how to get rid of everything I don't need, so minimal learning curve. Didn't find the claim that Moto X is "as close to a pure Android experience as you can get" to be make that big a difference.
1 con tho that i have been experiencing lately is that when i wearing basketball shorts and run up stairs with my phone in my pocket it will activate the camera and take pictures if its facing my leg.
other than that im not sure i would get another phone
