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.

It is a phone, after all, and call quality is terrific. I had no problem at all setting up Bluetooth phoning in my car, or in Bluetoothing to other devices (e.g., a Bose speaker) and a kanex keyboard). Texting with images works well (get the automatic downloaded APN settings for your carrier -- mine was AT&T), and e-mail is fast and easy to read.
This is an unlocked phone so it comes with virtually no bloatware. Since I backed-up my previous Android to google, all my music, videos, contacts and whatever were loaded automatically onto the phone. It took very little time to set it up with music, videos and photos loaded. I use a Sony 64 Gig SD card so total useable storage on the phone is about 75 Gig, more than an iPhone that costs a similar $850.
It came preloaded with a version of MS Office, but I was able to download MS Office 365 for free and to connect to Onedrive. Using Word, I actually performed real work editing a book I'm finishing.
Battery life seems more than adequate and with an SD card slot data storage is limited only by the number of cards you have.Read more ›
2013: i) Sony Xperia Z1 (Camera, performance) ii) LG G2 iii) HTC One (m7)
2012: i) HTC One X (that wonderful screen) ii)Sony Xperia T iii) Samsung Galaxy S3
2011: i) Samsung Galaxy S2 (Excellent screen, performance) ii) HTC Sensation iii) Sony Xperia Arc S
2010: i) HTC Desire ii) Motorola Droid X iii) Sony Xperia X10
(Nexus 5 would have been on my 2013 list if there was no G2)
Anyways, back to 2014, I own z2, m8, and s5. I'll keep two of them and will be looking forward to upcoming devices.
By the way, mine is a d6503 unlocked model and it supports ATT & Tmobile LTE.
So why do I think z2 is better than m8 and s5?
Screen: It's a tie between z2 and m8. Both are IPS RGB displays and can produce excellent natural colors. s5 uses an improved amoled screen which is also wonderful but still it's just not as realistic looking as z2 and m8 and I say that after trying its cinema and other modes. I'd also take an RGB amoled over its pentile amoled screen to get a bit more sharpness while reading text-heavy websites.
Performance: z2 and m8 are powered by 2.3 GHZ 801 processor and s5 comes with an 2.5 GHz 801 processor. However, s5's UI/bloatware combo is the most cluttered one and fails to take advantage of the faster processor and GPU. z2 has the cleanest UI and m8 is also heavily customized, but that doesn't bog down its sense UI. HTC certainly did a wonderful job with their UI.
z2 comes with 3GB ram compared to 2GB ram on the other two and is the best performer in multitasking thanks to the light UI and biggest memory.Read more ›
I bought from FGS Trading, they might of cost $5.00 more but was well worth it, I changed my mind and wanted a different color so I emailed them. They emailed back and told me if the could the would, and still make sure it shipped that day. Well they did, I switched from white to purple, because of some staining issues I found out about during some research done after the fact.
Also FGS sold me a phone that had over $80 worth of accessories, the sony magnetic dock, and the noise canceling headphone. What a great surprise, and well worth the extra $5 i spent.
This phone, the Sony Z2 D6503, wow. I am using a nexus 5 as my daily, and have a note 3, and Z Ultra as alternatives.
Size - The phone is larger, but coming from the nexus which has squared corners, its very usable. If you don't mind using the nexus 5 you won't mind the Z2.
Display - clarity seems the same as the nexus, but better that the note 3, and z ultra. The colors are so much better than the nexus5, and the Z ultra, and not near as artificial as the AMOLED on the note 3.
-processing power - even though it has the snapdragon 801 chipset, and the other 3 have the snapdragon 800, it feels about the same, if not a tad slower (the other 3 are all rooted and running stock KitKat) sometimes when I pull down the notification tray and i get a stutter.
Camera - I knew what I was getting, a 20.7MP sensor, but it still blew me away, I took photos with all 4 phones, the same photo, the Sony Z2 using superior auto, which yields an 8MP image, the nexus 5, and Z Ultra at 8MP and the note 3 at 13MP. The Sony destroyed them all, better color reproduction, more detail, and less noise, especially when cropped.Read more ›
