Cell Phones for College Students

College students can now save money on the newest cellphones including the new Samsung Galaxy S III. On this web site, I give you recommendations for finding the cheapest cell phone prices anywhere. The first tip you need to know is the various monthly rate plans from AT&T, Sprint, Nextel, T-Mobile, and Verizon will cost the same amount no matter where you purchase the service. However, the prices for the phone equipment will vary widely from store to store. College students should buy new cellular service from an online store rather than a local retail store. The online stores offer much lower prices on the phone equipment and will include extra accessories for free. I've searched for the lowest prices on cellphones for college students from the major carriers and listed them here on this page.

Here's another tip. The major carriers AT&T, Sprint, Nextel, T-Mobile, and Verizon require you to have a history of financial responsibility before qualifying you for a cellular plan. As a college student without a long history, you may have problems qualifying for a cellular plan because they will ask you to put down a very large deposit or refuse you service altogether. I recommend college students first try a prepaid cellular plan with Cingular GoPhone, T-Mobile To Go, or Straight Talk Wireless who cater to college students by not requiring a background check at all.

"I used to prefer shopping for cellular phones at the mall. But, is so easy to use and I found better deals here than I did in the 'real-world' store!"
