I've been thinking about this lately and it has been bugging me. I'll be planning on buying a Verizon Note 3 somewhere are March or April of 2014, but I'm curious, is it better to get the phone with contract or without contract? The phone is $300 on a 2-year contract and $700 for the full retail price. By the way, is it also true that if you buy the phone for its full retail price, you'll get an unlocked phone? It says so in Should I Buy My Next Phone Off-Contract? under "You Gain Freedom at Home and Abroad." So I'm curious guys, what's better than the two? This would also be a huge help for me when I buy the phone, so I also need help. Thank you.
