Nokia N82 Joins the Nokia N95 8GB as a SIM Free Device

The Nokia N95 8GB and Nokia N82 are the two top N-Series mobile phones, that is to say that they offer the very latest technology and design to come out of the Nokia research and development department. The N-Series range is a showcase for the manufacturer for their highest specification handsets and they use this range to promote new technology and features not available in any other series of Nokia phone. Both models have now been made available as SIM free handsets, this is great news for a number of reasons, none less than the fact that there are no ongoing costs for line rental or call charges when purchasing this type of phone.

The SIM Free system suits those consumers who may already have a mobile phone which is still within its minimum term contract period, these usually range from between 12 and 24 month agreements. The consumer can purchase outright a new Nokia N82 or N95 8GB and use their existing SIM card containing their current mobile number and account details rather than having to connect another handset and pay double the charges.

The price of a SIM Free handset may seem more expensive than that of a contract mobile phone but there is no network subsidy to discount the handset price as with contract deals, the way in which this usually works is that the network pays the retailer a set commission for each individual tariff that they connect a handset to, the amount depends on the cost of the line rental charge as well as the overall contract length so the higher the monthly charge and the longer the contract agreement, the more money the retailer will receive for connecting that phone. This is how retailers are able to offer free mobile phones, so with no network subsidy the customer is paying the actual price of the SIM Free handset.

SIM Free also works for many other people in different situations, for example if an existing customer loses their phone or has it stolen and they either do not have mobile phone insurance or the situation dictates that the insurer will not pay out then the customer can request a new SIM card to replace the lost or stolen one and simply buy a SIM Free phone and insert their new SIM card. This means that they continue to use their existing number and account details, there is one important thing to remember if you do lose or have your phone stolen, you MUST call your service provider and request that they put a bar on your line, should your phone fall into the wring hands you could be liable for any calls made.

The Nokia N82 and N95 8GB are two of the highest specification devices available and do command what may seem to be an expensive price but as the old saying goes, you cannot put a price on your freedom.

The Nokia N82 and Nokia N95 8GB are two of many new SIM Free mobile phones currently available, should you require any further information please feel free to visit our online mobile phones shop.
