You all know I am sorta, kinda, absolutely addicted to my phone. The thing is, that (unlike my brother, who’s surprised?) I always crave the new phones when they come out. Luckily, I have some self-control and have been digging a particular phone for months without swapping; however, now that I know about Best Buy Mobile Specialty Stores? I might lose my self-control.

Best Buy Mobile™ Specialty Stores are exactly what they sound like – stores dedicated to mobile devices and accessories, brought to you by Best Buy. You can go there to check out the top brands of smartphones and tablets from some of the nation’s widely known carriers (including Verizon, AT&T and Sprint). There are even accessories there to make it a one-stop shop.

At the store, you can feel free to buy your new mobile phone without pressure – the staff is non-commissioned, so they’re ready to help you match the best phone to your lifestyle. They’ll also help you pick which carrier is right for you, activate your new phone, and take care of the daunting task of transferring your photos, music, and contacts (with their complimentary Walk Out Working™ program).

Hold up. You read that, right? That means you don’t have to take time out of your busy day to worry about mail-in rebates, package tracking, or the waiting game. You browse for a phone. Fall in love. Walk out with it in hand, and working. This I like love.

Want to add more awesome to the convenience of the stores? When you check out, you can check your upgrade eligibility (I know I am not eligible until March, but Greg is… / this verified both to be true!) and see the trade in value of your current device. This way, you know what to expect when you head out to the Best Buy Mobile Specialty Store to find your next phone.
