I have it too, and I love it. I don't feel like 4" is small by any means, homescreen is well done and everything fits great, good for book reading, video and other staff. I have not encountered any problems with it at all. Easily unlocked, rooted, upgraded to ICS, killed some ATT staff on it to make it even faster. I love screen, cameras, storage size and SPEED. The only downside for me - 4 buttons on the bottom are not always responsive, sometimes you have to press button several times to register touch. But it's not that big of a problem most of the times. For $100 it's the best ever I have seen, for a new phone. I have purchased a few more to resell
yea this is a real problem this just happened to a friend who handed down an old iPhone it took a few months but now they are adding a ~$25 monthly data
it there a way to block them from reading what the phone is
No, there's no way to block it. That is how AT&T identifies smart phones and nails people with a data plan. There are reports on the internet that if you're using a phone that AT&T doesn't officially support, then they can't force a data plan (for instance, T-Mobil specific phone). But I have yet to test such theory. Others have and claimed success.
I bought the red burst from them last year. It's a good phone for the price. Everything looks new. There were no scratches or blemishes, but when I went to AT&T to get a new sim card, the guy said it was a display model. He couldn't tell if it was a demo or strictly display. It was actually a replacement phone because the first one had a vibrator issue. The store was really good with the exchange. They sent out the replacement and return shipping label pretty quick. So they have good customer service, but I don't think their description of NEW is accurate.
I switched to android sg3 from iphone and it was a great regret. If you're thinking of doing it, stick with a jailbroken iphone. The 'freedom' they say android phones have is a joke. Yeah, there's great freedom for developers, but none for the user. I could customize and tweak the iphone to exactly how I wanted it, but with android you're forced with the decisions the dev's decide upon with their own roms.
Just because you are lazy to learn by yourself you are blaming the devs ? Most of the devs on xda learned by their own and they just share their work. Its your choice to use their work or not. There are plenty of guides to learn to mod your android phones. Jail breaking an iphone is joke.
Looks like AT&T would detect this phone as a smart phone and nail you with a data plan...
+1..Just one of the many reasons why I dumped them.
I am loving my T-Mobile Value Plans. Yes, IT IS a commitment (contract), but since I am using it for family (3 lines), and only one needs data ($10 for unlimited DATA, upto 2GB full speed then throttle) - it makes perfect sense for me.
Only thing I liked about ATT was their coverage. T-Mobile has "some" coverage issues, but we still have above average coverage..
I want to get one of these with the proposed T-Mobile spectrum reframe but I am waiting to see if a next-gen nexus 4 is released with the new Qualcom LTE chip. At this point if I find one cheap on CL i'd pick it up.
Read tons of reviews on this and decided to go for it. Hopefully I don't run into the band charger problem some have had with it.
I purchased the red one though from the same seller and will use it as a Gophone. May try the Airvoice Wireless $10 per month plan since I don't talk a lot anyway. Been looking for something that was cheap and buried my Pantech Crossover. This does that VERY effectively. heh
