Unlocked GSM Cell Phones

Get the features you want, on any network, with unlocked cell phones. Of all consumer electronics, cell phones have evolved the fastest, providing access to the Internet, software applications and entertainment media in the palm of your hand. With all the freedom your cell phone allows, you may not want to be tied down to one carrier or another. Unlocked cell phones, not tied to one wireless provider or another, are available. That's because Overstock.com is about giving you choices, not walling you in.
Why buy an unlocked cell phone? Freedom. Buying unlocked cell phones means you purchase exactly the phone, features and cell phone accessories you want. You can still have Bluetooth connectivity, which can tie your unlocked cell phone to an earpiece or other accessories and devices. The FCC requires all cell phones to include GPS navigation, which can be a potentially lifesaving mobile phone feature in emergency situations. Wi-Fi networks can turn unlocked cell phones into surf-anywhere Web browsers. Plus, you can use these cell phone services on the compatible provider network of your choice.
Speaking of compatibility, there are two popular types of cell networks, abbreviated GSM and CDMA. CDMA is the more popular phone technology in North America, while GSM dominates in the rest of the world. If you travel abroad often, a GSM unlocked cell phone is probably a great choice; you can switch cell phone service providers as often as you cross the border. If you only travel occasionally, CDMA works just as well; you can use it at home and rent an unlocked cell phone if you go abroad. Not all phones work will all cell service providers, so choose carefully. But with the right network, your unlocked cell phone can keep you connected, wherever you are in the world.
We believe in giving people choices. That's why Overstock.com carries unlocked cell phones from all the major manufacturers. You can get the unlocked cell phone you want, on the network you want, at prices that competitors are struggling to catch up with. It's that kind of freedom that makes shopping at the "O" simply better.

Recent Customer Reviews in Unlocked GSM Cell Phones

  • Older model, solid build

    Oct 24, 2014

    The Conductor  from Upstate NY, Rating:4.0

    This is an older model phone, with a now-nearly-obsolete version of android, a good slide-out keyboard, and solid build quality. The design strikes a nice balance between appearance (with some tasteful chrome accents and brightwork) and utilitarian features (a nicely functional keyboard and a D-pad so you don't have to smudge the screen all the time). The case is small in its outline (and screen concomitantly small), but thick, making it more at home in a front pocket than the back. Activating it requires creating a "Motoblur" cloud service account, for backing up data I suppose, but mostly it is just annoying. You will need a Wi-Fi (or mobile data) connection to do the activation. If you are on a tight budget and don't care about apps much (many games won't work on the old Android versions anymore, for example) and don't need the fastest data service, and prefer a real keyboard, and want something that won't fall apart in a few months, then this phone is a good choice for you.

  • Great phone for a great price

    Nessie Rating:5.0

    This phone rocks. It's fast, it's well priced, and you don't have to pay your carrier $$ for it over the next two years. It's a deal! I recommend this to everyone. The only thing I don't like is it doesn't have drive mode where it Reads your texts to you. But there are apps for that.
