Part of the joy that comes with mobile phone ownership is freedom. For us adults, it means freedom to work when you want and how you want but for our kids, phones provide the power to communicate and share freely. Isn’t it ironic that sometimes the freedom we enjoy as mobile phone owners comes with constraints from being locked into contracts from carriers that charge us huge fees to upgrade to newer phones with better tech specs?
Think back to when you upgraded your mobile device. Chances are you had to wait until your current term was up before you could upgrade. You probably paid a subsidized rate for a new phone and signed a contract locking you into a service contract for a specified amount of time. Being locked into a contract prevents you from upgrading devices when shiny object syndrome hits.

Reasons for Considering an Unlocked Phone
A couple years ago I was sent an unlocked phone for a campaign that took far better photos and streamlined my work flow. I ended up ditching my iDevice with 6 months left in my contract. Since then I’ve been using an unlocked phone. I’ve become a huge fan of unlocked phones for families because they’re not tied to a specific carrier or contract and can be a way to save money.I love the ability to change devices when I want and shop around for mobile plans that best meet my family’s needs.

Where to Purchase Unlocked Phones
Gone are the days of having to convince your carrier to unlock your phone since unlocked mobile phones are available at Best Buy. Mobile carriers do sell unlocked phones but for full price and even then, some users complain their phones haven’t been truly unlocked. If you’re looking for freedom, get freedom from carriers and contracts at Best Buy with devices like the Sony Xperia Premium and Ultra models that feature amazing displays and advanced cameras that are only available at Best Buy.
Sony Xperia Unlocked Mobile Phones from Best Buy
Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra ($399.99 and only available at Best Buy) has a gorgeous borderless 6” edge-to-edge Full HD display that provides users with an incredible mobile viewing experience. The dual cameras boast impressive specs including a new 23MP main camera that was only previously found only on Sony’s flagship smartphones. The front facing camera is a nice 16MP that has been upgraded to include a 23mm wide-angle lens to accommodate more people for those group selfies. It’s a great phone for the money!
Sony Xperia XZ Premium ($799.99 at Best Buy) is a more pricey option in the Xperia line but you get what you pay for and this phone features a 4K HDR Display for a gorgeous display. The 4K HDR Display is the first of its kind in a smartphone and chances are after you’ve spent time gazing at the 4K screen of your mobile device, you’ll want to upgrade your television to a 4K model too! While the camera takes photos at a slightly lower resolution than the previously mentioned Xperia XA1 Ultra, the 19 MP main camera has some nice features including the world’s first Motion Eye camera system, Predictive Capture to help you get just the right shot, and Super slow motion video recording to capture life in ways no other smartphone can. The Xperia XZ processor has the Xperia XA1’s beat thanks to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor that provides exceptional performance when creating Super slow motion videos, watching 4K HDR videos, or playing the latest PlayStation games on PS4 Remote Play.
