Unfortunate that LTE on the 2100 band for T-Mobile isn't supported. This eliminates much of the 5GB $30 plan at this price point.

I can see why you left the specs out, and why the feature page showcases their ingenious addition of a screw:

(Per reviewer Wayne: )
* 7" IPS+ 600x1024 (169 ppi) Display
* 1.3GHz MediaTek MT8382 Quad-Core CPU w/ MALI 400 GPU
* 8GB Internal memory / 1GB RAM / MicroSD storage expandable up to 64GB
* 5MP Front & VGA Rear Camera (No Flash)
* HSPA + 21Mbps / 3G (aka 4G) Band Support Only- No LTE anywhere
* 3450mAh Non-Removable Battery
* Full-Size SIM Required for GSM Voice/Data (i.e. T-Mobile/AT&T)
* NOT compatible with CDMA Carriers (i.e. Sprint/Verizon)
* Includes Headphones, Screen Protector, 2 Amp Charger, and 3ft Cable

Don't know why, but really want to play around with one of these. If they would just add LTE support I would bite.

Is the "Full size SIM" (for this phone) the same as a "Mini-SIM"? I've got a 2006 candy bar Nokia 6030 with a "mini-Sim" I'd like to move over so I can more easily txt message. I've also read it being referred to as a "standard sim". I know it's Not a "micro". Getting mixed info in my search.

Its funny how all you guys and girls have so many negative comments. Even though non of you have tried this great cellular tablet.

I own the tablet. The amazon reviewers own the tablet. We All Love The Tablet.
You guys so afraid to let others make up their own minds.

I own the tablet with Tmobile $30 5gb plan. And the service is great. The Tmobile service gives me 5 bars at the 3rd level of an underground parking garage. 10 years with verizon never reached level 1 of the undergroung garage. The T-mobile speeds are Fast As Hell.

I just wanted to share my experience with others who may be looking for a nice and inexpensive 7" tablet with cellular connection.

People really hate to post on SD because so many of you Negative Commenters. Stop Being So Negative.
Let people make up their own minds.

This is not a $500 device.
This is a great GSM cellular tablet. At a $123 price point.
Ignore those guys. They know nothing about the product. Listen to folks that actually own the device. Read the Amazon Reviews by Verified Owners.

Read the specs. Memorize the price. Now go compare to other tablets that are/ were on sale and analyze price-to-spec ratio. You'll understand soon enough what the name Blu really represents.

Has anyone released a 7" phone compatible with all or most T-Mobile LTE bands? I have a Z ultra but I'd like to go a little bigger.

To be fair, I really didn't expect you to shill for T-Mobile as a last resort, but I suppose desperate times call for desperate measures. While I'm not a signal processing expert, I have enough electrical engineering background to know that at -3 it's a miracle that you would get reception at all, so the Verizon reception I believe -- T-Mobile giving you 5 bars at that depth is most likely a repeater, or else a delusion or a lie.

Thank you for calling our attention to the reviews. I noticed that the 5-star reviews occur at fairly regular intervals, are uniformly poorly written, and appear to specifically avoid repeating topics. While I'm sure one or two of them are legitimate, I can't help but sense some tradecraft at work. The 4-star reviews are mostly from reviewers who received the product for free and appear to completely ignore the fact that you want to charge money for this thing. Even then, some of them point out flaws that would be a dealbreaker for someone considering paying money for it. I'd say that a review from a guy who wasn't even able to use it as a phone is probably not going to cover all of the topics I care about.

I'm sure this would work fine for someone with no options or low standards, unfortunately there are quite a few perfectly viable options, especially for those not currently saddled with a carrier contract.

This one from Huawei has LTE, but it's 8".
