Unique cell phone cases make great gifts for family, friends or just yourself. So how do you find one? Right here . . . if you keep reading.
Once you've chosen the phone however, you realize that it's going to be with you a large part of your waking time.
So how can you make it brighten your day? Make it unique with a beautiful handmade cell phone case! A couple of years ago, I interviewed a few designers who made these cases (and sold them on Etsy.com).
Sue of SuezyBees Designs is a well-known artist/designer based in Brighton, UK. In addition to being mentioned on many blogs, she was featured in the affa craft book. Her cheerful handmade creations are available on Etsy. She says her work is inspired by, ". . . trees, birds, houses, beach huts, sailing boats and ice cream."
Sherry of CbSew Designs describes herself as a child of the 80's loves "kitschy items and old school nerdy goodness".
Carrie was inspired by her travels to create the Wallaby Bag Company. She designs and makes some really cool cell phone cases and laptop sleeves.
If you don't need something that's necessarily hand-made, there are places where you can customize your case with your own designs or photos.
If you into choosing your own cases or covers, then perhaps you choose your own unlocked phone as well. If so, then here are a couple of options.
You can bring your AT&T or T-Mobile compatible or unlocked GSM phone to Straight Talk and use it with one of their unlimited plans.
If you're okay with the T-Mobile network and don't need an unlimited plan, you can try PTel instead which offers rates as low as 5 cents per minute.
If you would rather be on the AT&T network, then you can also consider Red Pocket Mobile.
