TU. I got this phone a few months ago and really like it overall. Battery life is good enough at about a day+ before recharging. Camera is OK, not great, but heck the phone is basically free. The CPU is plenty speedy.

Just a note... The Be Frugal cashback is a slow process and at least in my case required following up with them to make sure the cashback comes through.

In fact I still have not gotten my cashback from April although they tell me now I should have it within 10 days. Almost 5 months after I bought the phone EEK!

I know R+ does not allow VM phones and "on November 15, 2013, Sprint will no longer allow iconic devices to be activated on Sprint mvno's. There is a good chance that this new policy will affect what phones can be activated on RingPlus. The devices that are not allowed as told by Sprint are to a mvno named PrepaYd Wireless are these" but anyone have any luck with this phone on R+?

Yeah, I gave up. It wasn't worth the hassle for $35. I had apparently opened up two shopping sessions and ordered from the wrong window.

The ZTE Awe runs laps around my old HTC One, so it was worth the $ anyways.

This is barely worth it.
3G only. Not Tri-band. Locked. No Updates. Sprint.

Not even worth using it as a media player, screen too small, battery too weak.

I got this a few months back on the tcb deal for $35 cashback. I never activated it, use it as a music player/audiobook player. Nice phone, though I just discovered it won't work via bluetooth with my new soundbar for some reason. Anyway, it's useful even if you don't want to activate it.

Can anyone confirm if this still works with the $25 grandfathered plan by doing a phone swap through your account settings on VM's website? This seems well worth it to upgrade from the LG Optimus V or Optimus Elite for a larger screen and faster phone.

However, I'm not sure if this phone supports wifi tethering, or wifi tethering with infrastructure support.
