Some ppl are sick of the yo-yo listings for these but some folks are looking at these for trade ins, cheap mp3 players, etc.

Good luck for those that find it in stock locally.

PRICE DROP BY $7 from $14.99 to $7.99. Call BB Customer Service for pricematch refund


does NOT work with RingPlus, never has

more info on unlocking.

IF YOU ACTIVATE, it's locked to Verizon Prepaid. Although some people have had other experiences, the VZW policy is that you can take it to any other Verizon MVNO after 6months of activation on VZW prepaid. This includes PagePlus, etc. NOT A GSM PHONE, 3G ONLY. IT HAS NO SIM CARD. so you'll never be able to take it to AT&T, etc.

The phone will prompt you out of the box to activate on one of the VZW prepaid plans ($45 or 60 /month). you can skip that activation process by following the instructions here:

Although some people have had trouble getting it to activate, some have activated for $5 of 'pay as you go' to start the 6 month clock ticking:

This phone has very small internal storage. Even with a memory card, you will likely run out of internal storage very quickly, limiting what you can do with the phone. HERE are instructions to allow you to make better use of the memory card and keep enough of the internal storage free for a better user experience (requires rooting the phone, but it is straightforward):

Unlike previous offers, there is no free month of activation with this offer.

It's not that it's $15 so much as it can be had quickly for a trade in with the Verizon promo codes. It's only been $10 about 1 month ago -- i got 4 and made out like a bandit with porting lines over to Verizon.

The $10 guy normally works on the corner, so maybe he's on break. You may get more than you bargain for with him. Safer to go with the $15 guy at BB. He has been tested.

I ported 4 lines from AT&T - got $100 credit for each ported line, $200 trade in for any working smartphone (4 of these that I got for $10 each), and received several $100 trade in codes afterwards from VZW. So far $1300 for switching - 5+ months of service for free. And some folks are grabbing the cash and porting out after 30-60 days.

Pretty sure most Verizon phones don't work with R+

If my kids Samsung S4 broke (monthly plan service) can I get this to take its place. I know the stats are crap, but, will verizon let me put this phone on the plan in place of the broken S4?

Thank You.
