Secretly An Android Phone!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ZTE D930 Chorus Prepaid Phone (Cricket) (Wireless Phone Accessory)This phone is marvelous! On the cricket website this phone isn't listed as an android but it really is (Android Gingerbread 2.3)! It requires only the $45 plan as opposed to the $55 android and smartphone plan as a result of this! A quick google search reveals details on how to root this phone. While android market is not included on this phone, there are other simple means to "side-load" android apps on it. Also take a look at some cricket user forums for more details on unlocking the full potential of this great phone.
Now with the $45 plan you get Muve Music which is an unlimited music download service. Virtually every major record label is there so whatever song you want will surely be there to download. I even tried stumping it and searched for some of the most obscure songs I could think of and lo and behold downloads were available!
This Phone has a great screen nice and bright and crisp! It's a resistive touchscreen but is super responsive and using a stylus on it makes a big difference and much more responsive.
Sound quality on this phone is the best I've heard on any mobile device! True stereo surround sound with dual speaker. It's super crisp, clear, and loud as heck, so you can rock out with your favorite songs!
Best of all IT PLAYS ANGRY BIRDS! lol yes with little or no slow down!
I highly recommend this phone for all those people who want an android phone but don't want to spend upwards of $100 for one and then pay $60 or more for service. Also think of the Muve Music as an extra added on bonus to sweeten the deal!
PS I have researched this phone for quite some time..... BUY IT HERE ON AMAZON!! IT'S THE CHEAPEST PRICE FOR THIS PHONE ANYWHERE! EVEN CRICKET'S SITE HAS IT FOR MORE MONEY!!!!!!!!!

Hey dude, how did you put angry birds on it? I can't do anything with my phone beside put music in it. How do you root it and add android apps?

@ Stormy.... Sorry for taking so long to get back to you. This phone isn't classified as an android on the cricket site only as a muve music phone. So you just have to sign up for the muve music plan which is only $45. Btw to make it a full android just google the phone model and how to root it etc. Have fun with your new phone. I love it and am still using it today!

@ Romeo.... Sorry for taking so long to reply. If you google the phone model and root etc. You'll find tons of info and be able to use the real android market/google play too! Or you can also go to www.cricketusers.com/ they actually have the instructions and files needed to root and mod it there. You just have to register (it's free) to download. Android apps can be side-loaded which means you download an android app elsewhere (.apk) and put it on your memory card. Then using your file browser on phone find it and click on it and it will install for you! As for Angry Birds... you have to find it on your own.... sorry
