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.

I bought the HTC Desire Eye E1 for my mother-in-law based on my previous experience with HTC and her limited budget. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with the phone. I wasn't expecting "junk" by any means, but it was a much better value than I expected.
The device feels sturdy and rugged. Additionally, it is aesthetically pleasing and has some really nice features over many other phones. One thing that sets this device aside from others is the front and back camera are both 13MP. This is a great feature for budget conscience social media enthusiasts. Also, if you're a little klutzy around the dinner table, this phone is water resistant as well. (I didn't test that out. I'm fairly certain mom-in-law will "field test" that feature soon enough.) I was a little hesitant about the 16GB ROM; however, you can configure the phone so all pics, movies, voice recordings, downloads, etc. are stored on the Micro SD by default. (Note: Not all apps can be moved to SD storage.)
This phone performs well and has a good, clear picture for movies, games, etc. (I had to test it out for my mother-in-law.) The phone also has pretty decent sound quality as well.
Overall, I'm very pleased with this phone. HTC Sense with Lollipop provides a good experience out of the box. Now, my wife and daughter want one also. And, hey! For $200, I can actually afford it.
UPDATE: I purchased this phone for my wife shortly after I purchased the original. I just recently purchased the same for my daughter. My wife and daughter both love this phone.
For T-Mobile users:
Since this is an unlocked phone, you can just pop in your nano sim card and should be ready to go. You can try to verify this by making some calls.
However, I realized that it does not work on T-Mobile's 4G LTE network (internet) unless you do the following (I got this instruction through the internet, because I am not as smart as the others who figured it out through T-Mobile....)
Step 1: open app drawer and go to setting/mobile network setting/access point names
Step 2: see picture for details.
Again, I found this online, I hope it will help those who wanted or going to buy this unlocked phone and use it on carriers other than ATT. It works on T-mobile.
UPDATE: I am having problems with MMS and WIFI Hotspot. MMS works, but only if you turn WIFI off. Haven't been able to use Hotspot at all - T-Mobile says it is due to AT&T software installed on the phone. I will contact HTC to see if they can help.
I have been rather rough with this phone and have broken 6+ screen protectors exposed it to water numerous times and 2 years later the phone is still fully functional and has given me ZERO PROBLEMS!
