What is an unlocked phone?
An unlocked phone is a device that is not bound to any carrier or plan. It allows you to choose your phone first and your carrier second. Upon selecting a plan, simply insert the carrier's SIM card into the phone and you're ready to go. If you decide you want to change carriers down the road or want to take an international trip, it's as simple as replacing your existing SIM card with a new SIM and activating your new plan.
What are the benefits of an unlocked phone?
Freedom: Choose the carrier with the best service or price. If you find a better deal later, you have the ability to change to a different carrier.
Travel: Take your phone internationally and use the carrier of your choice. It's as easy as inserting an active SIM card.
Selection: Choose the phone with the features you want, whether or not your carrier sells it, and get more service options without a contract.
How do I set up my unlocked phone?
The first thing you’ll need is a SIM card for your desired carrier. When activated, the SIM card will let your phone connect to your carrier’s network. If you decide to upgrade to a newer unlocked phone in the future, you can easily remove the SIM card from your old phone and put it in your new phone—just make sure you get the right size of SIM card (nano, micro, or standard) for your phone. If you want to use your phone while traveling internationally, you can easily buy a SIM card for a carrier that operates where you’re traveling. As long as it’s activated, you can just swap SIM cards when you arrive at your destination.

Another downside, as mentioned, is that it's really hard to navigate and the instruction manual is very very limited.
>VGA (0.3 mp) camera - Not 2mp as listed by Amazon
>50 contact limit (over 100 listed on my SIM card).
>No way to add appointments to the calender - sometimes it's important to have a phone beeping at you
>Navigating options is challenging but the back pages of the manual are in English (Hint: To lock the keyboard press middle "go" button followed by the space key).
>mp3 listed by song only - no albums or artist
>This is an excellent sub $30 phone. >Yes, it's plastic but well made
>Good phone sound quality
> Light weight
>The keyboard keys have a nice feel.
>2 SIM cards
>SD card (why pay $50 more for $5 of storage)
>Tiny television - amaze friends and family with the single Spanish channel! Try that with an iPhone
>FM radio is nice and strong (antenna helps)
>mp3 player better than average
>Bluetooth easy to use
>Good battery life
>USB charging (this is a major selling point)
Other than the VGA camera (which isn't high enough resolution to record receipts for bluetoothing to a tablet or laptop to convert to pdfs for reimbursement - something I need) I would keep the phone. I'm planning to exchange the Samba TV for a W (with 1.3 mp camera).
The phone arrived okay, and it was not difficult to insert the SIM card into the phone and charged the phone overnight. You do have to pry the back cover off the phone as it doesn't slide off (I can't imagine this does the plastic clips holding it together much good). The setup menus are pretty straight forward and I had no trouble setting volume and the usual things like that.
The phone comes with a very limited manual printed in multiple languages (in letters so small eagle's can't read it even if they squint), a power supply and a USB micro cable to connect to the power supply (or your computer). When you connect to the computer, you choose to connect as mass storage or com port. In mass storage mode, the phone appears as a removable flash drive. You can see the photos, playlists, etc. on the phone. When connected as a com port, you will see it as a device in the Windows "Device Manager", or Windows "Devices and Printers", but I couldn't find a driver for the device or any way to make this useful so I'd recommend using this as a USB device all the time.
I could not find a way to change the date display from the European day-month-year (sensible format) to the American month-day-year (irritating) format and I thought that was odd. The blue tooth menu is located under the Organizer icon as the first option. Its possible to pair this device to another blue tooth device, change the phone's name, or do other things using the menu systems.Read more ›

Keys are very tiny and a problem for my husband. He doesn't use a smartphone. Just need a very basic phone. Also, the ringer could be louder as he is hard of hearing. Read morePublished 37 minutes ago by Deborah C Schaefer
This was basically a back up phone when mine was damaged and I was waiting for a new one. It is a good deal, but just as any cheap cell phone it was very shotty. Read morePublished 4 days ago by alison
Works, but it fails to pick weaker signals while the other phones works perfectly.
So many features are built in the phone, some are not obvious. Search google if needed.
This phone served the purpose for which i bought it.it was easy to be activated and used overseas. Sounds clear. Only problem is that instructions are written in Spanish only.Published 15 days ago by Amazon Customer
Calls have terrible noise and interference on T-Mobile. Maybe it's the TV antenna stuff, who knows. There's better alternatives for a similar price. Read morePublished 22 days ago by Fernando A. Brucher
