Hi, I hope I've put this in the right section? I'm in the market for a smartphone. We are having neighbour trouble and want to install CCTV so need a smartphone to hook it up to. The trouble is, I've only ever had a cheap £50.00 basic phone from Argos before. (Not complaining, it's done it's job. :D ) I haven't really had need for one before as I'm housebound. Where do I start? If you take out a contract, do you get the handset for free? Or do I need to buy the phone first, then look for a provider? What handset do you recommend? Thank you for any help!
You can either buy a smartphone outright and then get a PAYG sim card or you can get a contract from a provider which includes the handset but will cost you more per month (because you are paying for the handset, they aren't free).
