Thanks to reader Michael who passed along the website called Phone Scoop. I stopped over at Phone Scoop to take a look at what they had to offer those who want or need information concerning specific cell phone models or carriers.
The website is very easy to navigate. You can find information about cell phones by carrier or by specific model. I did notice that not every model was listed, because Phone Scoop was missing some prepaid carriers. Noticeable MIA were Straight Talk, Net10 and Common Sense. Since these carriers were not listed, the cell phones specific to those plans, likewise were not listed.
Here is how the folks at Phone Scoop describe themselves and their site:
Phone Scoop is a comprehensive resource for mobile phone shoppers, users, enthusiasts, and professionals, focusing on the U.S. market.
Our flagship feature is the most comprehensive, detailed database of mobile phone information on the web. The database includes specifications, feature lists, photos, links, and user reviews. Our database is fully searchable, down to the finest detail, using our exclusive Phone Finder, the most powerful search-and-compare tool for mobile phones on the web. Users can also choose specific phones in a variety of ways and view detailed side-by-side comparisons.
We provide up-to-the-minute market and industry news. We continuously monitor numerous sources from around the web and beyond, and feature only the most relevant news for our target audience.
We regularly publish in-depth phone reviews and special reports, covering various topics, including event reports and technology guides.
With that being said, if you are looking for information about companies that offer contract plans and cell phones specific to those companies, Phone Scoop is worth taking a look at. They have included a glossary of terms page as well as links to sites that can also help in understanding which cell phone to purchase or which carrier to use.
Phone Scoop also has a forum in which general questions or those specific to a carrier or phone can be asked.
So I have a question? Which site would you recommend or use to find cell phone and cell phone carrier information?
