ADVANTAGES:

Mobile voice calling, e-mail, instant messaging (IM), Web browsing,
and photography, plus assorted additional functionality through new mobile
software apps.


Many people in small businesses spend much their time out of the
office visiting customers. Cell phones have long served as a boon to
SOHOs for mobile voice calling. The advent of so-called feature phones
earlier in this decade added text messaging and e-mail capabilities,
along with some limited Web access.

But with the newer wave of iPhones, Droids and other smartphones,
users now get full Web browsing from their handheld devices, built-in
cameras for shooting photos and videos, and GPS capabilities to help
them navigate the business terrain. Smartphones also differ from the
earlier feature phones in that they’re able to run downloadable mobile
software apps (both business-oriented and not). Smartphones do cost
more. But you can typically purchase a carrier-subsidized model for
$200 or less if you sign a two-year contract for wireless services.

Many companies today offer products enabling small business access to
either or both types of services. now supports these with mobile
software apps for smart phones. Although wireless customers still need
to pay monthly carrier fees, the VOIP services keep you from using up
voice minutes. International calls can be placed either free of or at
reduced rates. Through the virtual PBX services, you can use a single
phone number from Phone.com for multiple phones – such as the office
phone and home and mobile phones – and choose how calls are routed to
those phones. Phone.com also offers multiple phone greetings with
selectable professional-sounding voices. While the smartphone apps are
free, Phone.com charges monthly fees which vary according to which
services you choose.

Although all phones support voice calling, anyway, VOIP (voice over
the Internet) services can reduce your costs by letting you place
calls over the Internet instead of through carrier-operated networks.
Virtual PBX, on the other hand, can provide you with keener weapons
against otherwise daunting rivals through its sophisticated call
routing options.

DISADVANTAGES:

SIM lock

(Subscriber Identity Module lock) A function in GSM cellphones that
restricts the phone's use to a particular cellular carrier (a
particular SIM card). SIM locks are used to ensure subscribers finish
their service contracts when the phones are heavily subsidized by the
carrier. SIM locked phones may be unlocked by entering a code.

catagory.sim unlocking is brought into public view because of its
vexclusivity with At&t in the us .However iphones continiously
unlocked by hackers in and out side u.s. It is done for not only to
use a different carrier, but to costomize their appearence and
download applications even before apple debuted its app store. In many
developing countries locked phones are either prohibited or are a
recipe for marketing failue. See sim card, jailbreak and iphone.
