Buy a new phone with the features you want most. Boasting clean lines and slim designs, plus intuitive interfaces, Windows phones make it easier than ever to connect your way. And with a range of impressive features (which vary based on model), they also give you the power to do more at home and on the go. Just a few of the options available include:
• Pre-installed apps: For the ultimate in convenience, many Windows phones come with the most popular apps already installed. This way, you can simply login and get connected to social media sites, listen to music, use Microsoft Word and more.
• Cortana: When you buy Windows phones featuring Cortana, you'll get a personal smartphone assistant who can help you find just what you need, when you need it. She'll even remind you of important events, tasks and sing you a tune on demand.
• Windows 8.1 (or Windows 8.1 ready): Combining the power of Cortana with the ultimate in personalization, our simple yet sophisticated operating systems makes it easy to personalize your phone with the things you use most. From pinning important items to your Start screen, to the latest browsers and the ability to write as you swipe, Windows 8.1 gives you flexible solutions and the power you need.
Windows phones can be attached to a specific provider or purchased "unlocked," giving you the option to choose – and change – providers as your needs change. As you shop, look for devices in the following categories, and select the option that's right for you:
• Contract phones: Windows contract phones are available to anyone, but can only be used in connection with a specific cellular provider. The length, terms and conditions of the contract may vary. Please review details prior to choosing this type of phone.
• Unlocked phones: Unlocked Windows phones give you the power to choose the phone you like best and select the provider you want. However, it's important to be aware that unlocked phones will only work on GSM cellular networks, so be sure to choose a phone that's compatible with your preferred list of carriers.
