If you plan on heading to shop this Black Friday, you’ll probably have a list of Christmas gifts to get family and friends. You’ll of course need your wallet or purse, and you’re not going to want to leave home without your cell phone.

"You can use your web, your data feature on you phone, to check out the prcing and see where the best prices are, " says Sprint Store Assistant Manager, Brandon Cornell.

Having price information at your fingertips can also work to the customer’s benefit if a store does price matching.

"5 or 10 years ago, we didn’t have all the capabilities. So, this is definitely something that’s going to be beneficial in the future, to be able to use. Everybody, if they have data, it’s going to be helpful this Black Friday, " says Cornell.

If the entire family plans on shopping too this Friday, many cell phone carriers also have a family locater so you can keep track of where everyone is at.
