I took the phone to ATT store to activate; the idiot in the store was more interested in playing with the phone then actually getting it to work. I left the store very unsatisfied. But the phone was working and I can make and receive phone calls and text messages.
The phone does work on ATT on the first slot (SIM 1). With the DATA.
I spent 2 hours on the phone with ATT to get this phone to work on their service.. Finally it did. Be persistent; and patient with ATT.
This phone will work well on DATA plans in the US.. Unfortunately, U.S carriers would prefer that you use a handset locked to their services. At home, they'd rather you not swap in different provider's SIM. And while this last part is changing to some degree, carriers would prefer that you use one of their roaming partners when you take your phone overseas (they get some money that way).
SIM 2 (Slot 2) T-Mobile
I decided to get another line activated since T-Mobile on the second slot.
Make sure you understand, On T-mobile it works on Edge
EDGE is considered a pre-3G Technology. Which means it is VERY SLOW.. Like Dial Up.. the only thing this phone is good for is wifi..forget about trying to upload a picture to Facebook on this unless you are on wifi..
Using the second slot (SIM 2) is best for 3rd world countries. Not the United states
Overall i love this phone.
I am very disappointed to report that my HTC 816 broke after just using it for 4 months. Unfortunately, because I bought it online, there is no warranty, so I am out the $300+ that I spent on it and the case. It happened when I went overseas. I had gotten a SIM card from the country I was in to use my phone there. Around the same time, my phone started over-heating and the download arrow at the top of the phone looked as if it were continuously downloading something, and would run for hours. I'd turn off the phone because it was over heating, but when I'd turn the phone on again, I'd continue to have the same problem. Then the screen became less and less sensitive to touch until it became completely non-responsive and I couldn't use any application or function on the phone at all. I don't know if it's a problem with the phone itself, or the SIM card from overseas that caused the problem. It would cost $100 to have the screen repaired at HTC, but I think I'll just buy a new phone. I am SO disappointed because I loved my new phone - everything worked perfectly until the overheating/screen problem, and I'd only had it for 4 months. I will not make the mistake of buying a phone without warranty again.
December 2014 review:
I have had my HTC phone for about 3 weeks, and I love it. My old phone was an iPhone, which I couldn't wait to get rid of. It took a couple days to become familiar with the android system, but it wasn't as difficult as I thought. The screen is large and has great resolution. The pictures taken on the 13 mp camera look great - I'm amazed how good the low-lighting pictures turned out - they were even better than ones taken with my real camera. The speakers are loud with good sound quality.Read more ›
Consider the price and check out the features.It is a well-endowed phone for its price. Its monster 5.5" display is crisp and bright but incomparable to the 2013 nexus line up's screens. This phone's back panel is a fingerprint magnet and scratches easily. get a damn case.
Good buy, clean UI but slightly bloated. Two browsers, two, Gallery apps and what-not.
