It is easy to get caught up in the hoopla when it comes to grabbing the latest piece of new technology. What's more, just about every carrier will do whatever they can to get you into one as quickly as possible.
Think about it. Apple sold 4 million new devices in the first 24 hours. It is my guess that those buyers probably did not do much homework when it came to getting the phone they wanted at the very best price they could. They couldn't have. There just wasn't enough time to weigh the options and read the fine print. Though, in the defense of those who pulled the trigger immediately (OK, OK, I'm one of them), they do have a really great new device.
However, if you do have some patience and can resist the temptation to purchase the first day, you may be able to get the exact item you want at much more attractive price. In fact, we even have a few great tools that can help.
