Choosing A Cell Phone And Mobile Data Plan

A wave of new offers from cell phone carriers leaves consumers confused about data plans, phone upgrades and how to save money. We explore changes in the industry and how to find the best deal.

A wave of new offers from cell phone carriers has consumers wondering how to find the best deal. Last year, T-Mobile "uncoupled" the phone from the data plan and let people buy each one separately. AT&T followed suit, while the other competitors developed new variations of their own. Tech Tuesday explores how phone technology, business decisions and a maturing mobile communication industry are changing the landscape for customers.
