This paper examines how the author made an informed decision regarding the purchase of a new I-Phone. First, the paper considers why the author had new needs that were not met by his current cellular carrier. Next, after identifying his basic cellular needs, the author describes how he gathered information. This involved making up two lists, the first of which compared the specifications for the phones. In the next list, he compared the cell phone plans that were compatible with the phones that he chose. Then, the paper outlines how he researched coverage information on the cell phone providers. The paper concludes by the author stating that he is happy with his choice, which was the result of good research.

From the Paper:

"Next, I began to look up coverage information on the cell phone providers. Many of the providers had maps showing coverage, and I looked at the areas where I live, as well as the areas where I most frequently need to use my cell phone. Furthermore, I went to http://www.cellreception.com/, a website that shows cell towers for service providers as well as gives access to local-user reviews, so that a consumer can tell if their provider has good coverage in a local area. I decided this approach was better than looking at national reviews, because the highest-ranked service provider in the country would not do me any good if it provider poor coverage in my area. What I discovered is that all three of the major companies had good reception for almost all of my high-frequency calling areas. However, I enjoy a lot of outdoor activities, and one of the companies had several dead spots in a nearby state park. Because I might need to use my cell phone in an emergency in that area, I was able to eliminate that company based on the dead zones."
