Cell Phone Knockoffs

As with any product, the newest and most sophisticated cell phone models are also the most expensive. Hence the market for knockoffs of popular cell phone models such as the Motorola RAZR and Samsung's Anycall.

Such phones are generally made in China, use designs and even names that are remarkably similar to the original ("Samsumg Amycall"), and are substantially less expensive. So if you're planning to upgrade your phone -- and especially if you're offered a sweet deal -- be sure to read the fine print... on your phone as well as elsewhere!
