Many mobile phone networks operate on third-generation cell phone technology. Even with the advent of 4G, 3G phone technology remains a viable alternative. While shopping, compare the various phones available, such as Android and BlackBerry. Purchase one that works on your network, or buy an unlocked model instead.
Keep in mind that later versions of the 3G phone provide mobile broadband access in addition to 3G connectivity. Connect to a 3G network and have fun talking to your family and friends.
