Whats the difference between clone and unlocked phones?
I was looking for the T-mobile G1 cell on craigslist and seen some of the phones are clones. Is there a big difference or just another way of saying unlocked?
a clone looks like the real deal but it has Chinese guts and is junk, and a unlocked phone it the real thing but it isn’ t dedicated to a single network.
A clone is a fake that looks like the real thing – like those fake Chanel handbags. An unlocked phone is a GSM phone that can be used on any GSM network. However, not all features of the phone are guaranteed to work with a network other than the one it was originally locked to.
