Just got the phone today was pleasantly suprised it worked so well with my ATT sim., still need to test it out with another Sim to test the dual sim properties, booted up and started installing and customizing apps, synched my email without a hitch, phone calls to friend was clear, streaming Pandora on it right now while i type and is coming clear. GPS is accurate using maps and navi. the battery seems to drain a bit faster than i liked. Also for some reason i cant install shazam or any music recognition apps, says its imcompatible to the phone :( Also a friend tried using a spring sim but didnt work, then again sprint uses a different type of cell protocol, CDMA i think, works well with ATT thought here in Cali. One of the biggest suprises of the phone is that you can use teether and use the phone as a wifi hotspot, i wasn't able to do this on my iphone!

pros +
clear calls,
emails connected smoothly
sim worked right away
streaming with pandora music is smooth

con's -
battery life seems a little less (still need to test this out furthur though)
shazam or any android music recognition isin't supported for some reason, hoping i can find something out there i can use
cant handle too much multi tasking, when running pandora and webrowsing it seemed to stutter a lil

Have been using for just a week. This cell phone worths the money! Only 175Mb ROM available for App`s. Battery lasts longer than other android phones. Loud speakers, good mic. Camera ok. Easy to choose SIM for calls or SMS. FM radio works pretty well! No bugs yet!!! I`ll be back if that happen!!! CPU is fine. Haven`t use the bluetooth yet.
BUYERS outside the U.S: Be aware on 3g frequency! Some Dash works on 1900. Others on 2100.
***Unexpectedly AMAZON sent me an open-box item, with both seals broken. But the item was sopposed to be brand new!

I purchased a BLU Dash 3.5 to use on vacation, with a local Mexico sim in slot 2 (quad-band Edge) and an AT&T Gophone sim in slot one. I tested the phone at AT&T and got "H" connection, and it seemed very slow compared to my Tmo Galaxy S II, because it was. The antennae on the Dash 3.5 are about, I believe, half the max speed of 802.11b, or about 4-6Mbps. Better than Edge, certainly, and fine for email. The phone itself, while on wi-fi, was a delight. I loved the launcher, which made it possible to change the size of the fonts and icons on the applications screen. I really liked 2.3.6 (or whatever it has in it), more in fact than ICS on the Galaxy, and of course, far more than 2.1 or 2.2. Skype worked great, and the screen resolution was just fine; not as good as the similarly sized Moto Defy but nice and bright and clear enough. They give you two extra backs, in different colors, which is a cute touch.

SO. My extra batteries arrived, and guess what? They were the model for the plain Dash, not the 3.5. The Dash 3.5 uses the C654804130T, and no one in the entire hemisphere apparently sells them. ( sells the other one, the one for the plain Dash. It is model C654205110T. An ebay seller with a phone number (who shall remain nameless) gave me that model# and a link to I ordered them before my own Dash 3.5 arrived.)

So unless BLU itself responds with batteries, or or its fulfiller finds some, I am sad to say my phone will be returned until such time as BLU gets its act together.

The 1-star loss is because of the slow antenna BLU chose to put on this (and I assume on the VIVO 4.3 also), and the batteries being unavailable.

This Android works great and has a very good performance. I ensured I bought a high-speed storage card (class 10) so that performance wouldn't be slowed down due to the card. I installed the Consumer Cellular SIM card and the phone worked immediately; however, web and MMS didn't work. Consumer Cellular support couldn't see the phone in order to push down the network settings so, I had to do some research. Some info was okay on Internet but not good enough so, after about 3 days, I collected enough info to successfully gain all services to get Web & MMS to work with Consumer Cellular. I hope this helps others. Here are the settings I used (assuming you've deleted any APNs you might already have:

Add a new APN and insert in the following values. Notes: If you don't have all the values available, just enter the ones you do have available (it might still work for you). Some values are purposely left blank and should remain that way. Also note that (on some phones) for "APN type", no spaces should be used so don't be tempted to add a space after the comma.

a. Name: Consumer Cellular WEB
b. APN: att.mvno
c. Proxy:
d. Port: 80
e. User Name:
f. Password:
g. Server:
h. MMSC:
i. MMS proxy:
j. MMS port: 80
k. MCC: 310
l. MNC: 410
m. IP Version: IP
n. Authentication type: PAP
o. APN type: default,supl
p. APN Protocol: IPv4

Click <Save>. If you don't see that as an option, you will have to look for what button to push on the phone to reveal it as an option.

Add another new APN and insert the following values.
a. Name: Consumer Cellular MMS
b. APN: att.mvno
c. Proxy: proxy.mvno.ccmobileweb.
