Cellular South phones are a good option for people that live in the Southeastern part of the United States. Cellular South phones come in a wide range of prices, shapes, and levels of functionality, so regardless of your budget and needs, there's a good chance that you'll find a Cellular South phone that suits you.

About Cellular South

Cellular South is the largest privately-owned mobile provider in the nation and they have done quite well for themselves, considering the relatively small catchment area that they serve compared to more notable names like AT&T (formerly Cingular) and Alltel Wireless.

Like Telus Mobility and Verizon cell phones, Cellular South phones are based on CDMA technology and they have roaming agreements with other regional CDMA operators so that Cellular South phones will still be able to work when outside of their own network. Naturally, roaming charges would probably apply, so I'd be careful before you spend an hour chatting on your mobile phone while traveling through New York.

Cellular South Phones Service Area

At this time, Cellular South phones will work in the Memphis Metropolitan area, Mississippi, Coastal Alabama (including Mobile), and the Florida Panhandle. Within this area, you will find more than five million Cellular South phones being used. As mentioned above, Cellular South also has roaming agreements to serve you across the country.

Examples of Mobile Phones Available

Like any other cellular service provider, the selection of Cellular South phones is continually changing, so the handsets highlighted in this particular article may or may not be available by the time you read this. As such, it is always best to visit your local Cellular South store and talk directly to a customer service representative. Alternatively, you can keep checking their official website for the most up-to-date information.

In the meantime, here is a small sample of Cellular South phones that are available at time of press.

  • Nokia 2865: This economical candybar may not come with the hottest features of the flashiest appearance, but it does come with the backing of Nokia, the world's largest mobile phone maker. Even though it is budget-minded, the 2865 still comes with Bluetooth, an FM radio, a speakerphone, and BREW capabilities.
  • Motorola W315: Similar in many ways to the Motorola PEBL, this round-shaped flip phone can be had for free with a two-year contract. Don't look for anything too special though, as the W315 only comes with an external display, voice-activated dialing, and voice memos.
  • Kyocera Strobe: Text message enthusiasts will likely enjoy the Strobe because this handset sports a full QWERTY keyboard, making it remarkably easy to type out like how you would on a regular computer. You also get a VGA camera, speakerphone, and Bluetooth.
  • Motorola KRZR: Quite possibly the most fashionable Cellular South phone available, the KRZR flip phone has a glass finish, vibrant external color display, 1.3 megapixel camera with video recording, memory expansion, an integrated MP3 player, and 64MB of internal memory.
  • BlackBerry 7130: For the business users in the audience, there is this BlackBerry PDA phone. You get a SureType keyboard that assigns two letters to each key, a large color display, and the full suite of tools and software that you've come to know and love from Research in Motion, makers of the BlackBerry.
