NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - December 13, 2015) - Despite the balmy autumn weather, many of us are already planning our winter vacations. And what better way to gift the frequent flyer or jetsetter on your list than with an unlocked mobile they can use with ease overseas?

B&H launches an epic one-day sale on unlocked smartphones and phablets. Entitled "Smartphone Spree:Brilliant Tech @ Ingenious Prices," the promotion gives savvy holiday shoppers a chance to score the best smartphones at incredible savings.

Although not all smartphones work abroad, a little research is all it takes to find models that are travel-ready: look for the words "quad band" in the specifications, or the specific bands 850/900/1800/1900 MHz -- and avoid models that use CDMA networks.

"Unlocked GSM smartphones are perfect for travel," asserts Eli Daskal, Director of the B&H SuperStore, located at 420 Ninth Avenue in midtown. "You can take them abroad and use a prepaid (or pay-as-you-go) SIM card when you reach your destination, saving money on roaming charges you'd ordinarily pay your home carrier."

Over 100 top-name smartphones of all configurations are on display in the B&H NYC SuperStore to allow pressure-free trial and testing. "Our phone section has become one of the most popular departments on the first floor," states Daskal. And since B&H experts are specifically trained to know their category inside and out, they're well-equipped to help customers choose wisely among so many big-name brands.

So even though a first-class ticket might get them there in style, and a stylish suitcase will look great in transit, why not opt for a present that will make them think of (wonderful, thoughtful) you over and over during the course of the trip?

And don't forget, unlocked cell phones will save time and money on home turf, too, by freeing users from lengthy, often expensive contracts with major carriers. Whether you're shopping for a globetrotter, a tech-hungry tween, teenager or student, or yourself, the really smart money is on an unlocked phone!

As always, live B&H sales experts are available to answer all questions at (212) 615-8820 or 800-759-8003
