I'm a phone noob with some questions.

So basically I'm unfortunately once again in a contract with tmobile. I have an outdated phone which I dropped and broke. It is insured but to replace this outdated phone it costs $130.00. If I want to cancel tmobile it costs over $200.00. If I want to upgrade to a better phone I lock myself into 2 more years of tmobile and pay most of the cost of a new phone. Ok, so is there a way I can buy a smartphone on my own (probably a droid), use tmobiles service for the rest of my contract and then go elsewhere? Also how do unlocked phones work? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Go to Google Play store and buy a Nexus4 (8GB) for $299. Use it on T-Mobile's network. When you're current contract is up, you can use it on AT&T network as well (or any other GSM provider).

That sounds like it might be a good idea. The glass back scares me a bit though : P

Yeah I have no idea why they chose that after seeing so many iPhones with cracked backs.

Just note that, depending on your plan, you may not be able to use many of the features of the smartphone unless you bump up your service.
