A GREAT phone, using mine but I got the GSM 16GB version. A great high low-end phone.

 

Be aware that this phone CANNOT be used with ANY other provider except Verizon! You can use it on their pre-paid plans, but the prices/details of the Verizon plans are not as good as TMobile or StraightTalk/Cricket etc etc.

 

So if you don't want to use Verizon this would be a great handheld android device, but don't buy it thinking you can take it anywhere but Verizon.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Easily worth it for that price. I love mine. The only negative IMO is the camera, everything else is closer to a $300-400 off contract phone. I am tempted to get this too, but I don't know why...

 

With Google Music you don't need to worry that much about the phones storage in terms of music. You only get about 5-6GB of usable space though, just be aware.

it's locked down from working with any other carrier. it is also cdma, whereas straight talk is gsm so it would be a no-go regardless

Straight Talk uses the Verizon network.

Straight Talk does CDMA as well as GSM. However, when I looked a couple of months ago this phone was not eligible.

Straight Talk uses the Verizon network.

oh, sorry. it is locked down to verizon pre-paid. people successfully got customer service to allow it on verizon contract (post-paid plan) by dialing out with it to *228 but getting the csr to honor it is ymmv it seems. but definitely not straight talk or other carriers

Seems there is a way to unlock this. You have to go through the Chinese Taobao site though (like an eBay marketplace but no auctions).

Unlocking the bootloader is much different then unlocking it for other carriers.

Yeah, if your goal is to simply have an Android system as a phone this is perfect. Seeing how Amazon's App Store has been on fire lately, not a bad phone to use for it as the hardware is certainly capable enough. If your goal is to use this on anything but Verizon, forget it. This isn't for you. If you want:

 

- Android 4.3, upgradable to 4.4.

- 4.5" screen.

- 720p screen.

- Can deal with 5GB~ storage. 

- An FM Radio.

- Good, all around hardware (slightly under the Nexus 4). 

 

Then this is perfect for you. Very easily capable of running most apps you'll get, games included.

Never went with a verizon prepaid phone.  How do they handle their smart phone data usage.  Cause prepaid or not that can rake up a huge bill with their never stay in check let the customer go over the limit before stopping them service.

Thanks for the heads up on this!  I've been wanting to pick up a super cheap android device (I use a Windows Phone) and this fits the bill since I'm not going to connect it to a plan.

Awesome, thanks OP.  I think I'll grab this so I can play Hay Day with the wife, I think it should work for that.  Otherwise I'll be waiting til Christmas time probably for an iPad deal that lived up to last year's.

I'm picking up the phone right now and noticed that you can also use the $5 Wolfenstein gift card (expires June 16) or rz certs on 2 dvds which translate to a new $10 gift card. This way, I don't have to worry about the expiration date.

 

Online & in store buy:

Cloudy Chance Meatballs dvd $4.99

Fifth Element  dvd $4.99

 

Receive:

$10 gift card

 

Some of the $9.99 blu-rays in store come with $10 hollywood movie money to see spiderman 2 in theaters so that's another alternative.

The phone may be cheap, but the service is expensive!  The only plan you can get with this phone is the $45 per month plan.  If you add it up over 12 months you will pay $540 + the $50 phone.  

 

I got the same phone with Republic Wireless for $150 and their comparable plan is $25 per month.  That comes to $300 for 12 months + $150 for the phone which is $140 cheaper than Verizon.

 

Republic even has a $10 a month plan (if you don't care for 3G) which means you could spend as little as $270 over the corse of 12 months!  

 

Check out Republic Wireless and use my referal link below and get a $20 credit on your first bill!!!

Are you certain you can only use the $45 plan? Why would verizon offer like 7 different cards, if each phone only supports 1? Where did you get that info? I may return this if that's the case. I wanted the $35 with 500 talk, unlimited web & text plan for my mom. She doesn't use it for talk, so text & looking at web pages is all she'd want it for.
