This phone, Huawei Ascend II (M865c), should not be being sold to anyone.
The model that works through Straight Talk has issues with network connectivity.
Half of the people who purchase this phone experience these problems.
When the phone is rebooted, the device fails to connect to the tower and is stuck in an inaccessible mode while the only thing displayed is a loading sign.
This has been experienced by multiple of the same phone across multiple states. (They sent me replacements that all had the same issue)
The program inside the phone is called com.huawei.android.keypadprogramming. This program crashes from the issue.
So, you may not experience these issues immediately, but after you reboot a few times, you will experience this.
Straight Talk is aware of the issue. The deny being aware, however one of their employees (Vincent) informed me that it is well known with recent Huawei devices on the Sprint network (this phone operates on the Sprint network).
The phone manufacturer is also aware of this but will not release a patch for the phone because the cost outweighs the benefits for them.
Regarding Straight Talk customer service... Please demand your money back if you have this issue. They (the managers on the support lines) have lied to me many times over the past few months and I have not receive a refund. Please do not be fooled by them. Ask for corporate.
Regarding these sellers on Amazon: This phone is not worth $140. You can buy it brand new from Straight Talk for $100... But, obviously, you don't want to do that.
I hope this helps you make a decision on your phone choice.
