How To: Be An Expert Cell Phone Shopper

This is some of the best insider info I have came across in awhile. Consumerist.com has posted these exposing confessions from two former employees at Cingular and Verizon. Now you can be a conscious consumer by learning some of the corrupt sales tactics and marketing schemes behind every cell phone company. This is genius! For more tips like this from the Cingular employee, click 7 Confessions of a Cingular Sales Rep "Make the store compete with the website. Remember that the retail stores can match prices for the cingular website, so check those prices before you go into a store."

For more tips like this from the Verizon employee click 8 Confessions Of a Former Verizon Sales Rep "Never get a 2-year contract. The only benefit to a 2 yr contract is a $50 savings on your phone. Its not worth it. Take the $50 and get a 1 year then you can upgrade to a new phone every 10 months."
