Here are our reviews:
DEVICE: New Pantech Burst Android (myself and my friends call these our $100 iPhone killers) from eBay & CL for ~$100 (TIP: to get the phones unlocked by AT&T if you don't buy one unlocked, call them and tell them you bought it from a friend and are headed to Europe and you need the code, but you're going to activate with AT&T as soon as you return. Have unlocked FIVE devices this way on the first try!)
Easy, free upgrade to ICS.
Good build quality, weight, and feel (love mine with the $20 Otterbox Commuter Case from Amazon, too).
Dual Core 1.5
16g onboard, can accept up to 32gb microSD
Works great making GrooVe IP (with Google Voice) calls on a good WiFi connection--you won't need a MagicJack, Ooma or other devices at home, just use your Pantech Burst for no minutes off your calling plan.
Poor battery life, so you'll need to turn off stuff you're not using (BT, WiFi, brightness, and so forth)
Speakerphone is almost impossible to use because of echo for the person on the other end (your end of the conversation will sound great)
If you have other questions, please post for all to see and I'll respond on this forum.
BTW, I've ALWAYS had CDMA service (Sprint or Verizon) and this is my first foray into GSM. So far I like it. Reasons:
- easier to root/unlock phones
- more compatibility with the rest of the tech world
PLANS: $30 T-Mobile prepaid, PlatinumTel prepaid, or whatever. Listen to Clark Howard school his radio audience about how lame any plan with a contract is and how foolish it is to tie yourself up with, given what's coming in the way of options, and coming FAST.

- David Buco, 9/26, 11pm central time, pantech facebook post: I talked to a rep at PantechUSA over the phone. He said that a separate app will need to be downloaded from their site - plug in the phone to the computer, start the app and update should commence.
- Turn on USB debugging before running the bat file.
- Just extract that file and run RunMe.bat. Choose option 4. Let it boot 2 times as it goes. Quit from the PC command window after it boots up and is ready.
- Then update Superuser app, and choose Root in its preferences.
- Then get Super Manager free from App store, give it root permission (settings) and now you can remove stuff.
Back to 1,000 available / 461 sold on the unlocked version
AT&T- full support, 3G, 4G(HSPA+/LTE), etc
Straight Talk - voice, sms, 3G, HSPA+ 4G only (no LTE)
T Mobile - voice, sms, limited 3G (HSPA only), limited HSPA+ 4G (T mobile is supposedly expanding this), no LTE
I have one that I gave to my mom after I upgraded but it's actually 1.5Ghz Snapdragon S3 cores and you can't overclock it any more than that. Pretty fast phone in general though some issues with storing things on the SD card because of the skin and Google Music flips out and tries to store all the cached songs on the main app partition and uses up all your space, oh and Google Voice integration is totally broken in the dialer (voicemails crash the dialer, you see the calls as going to the google voice # in the logs, etc.) It's a good phone for the money no doubt but definitely not high end and the camera is plainly terrible.
