While a good price for this phone, as a user i can tell you that the 8gb ROM files up fast. Even though i have a 32BG card in it, there are not enough apps that I can move to the SD card, otherwise not a bad phone. Camera leaves a lot to be desired, the wide angle selfie camera is nice to get the friends in the shot. Honestly, if it had a 16GB ROM it would be a nice upgrade from the Avant.

TMO Band 12? YES!!!

Just got back from BB having picked up one for an added line on my account. I had come across the BB listing on ebay - http://www.ebay.com/itm/T-Mobile-...SwGotWn0pA and was looking for one locally.

Great price, considering T-Mo has them for $190. Supports all T-Mo bands, as well as Wi-Fi calling and advanced messaging.

Sure, it's not a premium phone, but...

Do you know if this can this be used with a regular T-mobile plan and not prepaid?

Anyone know if this has a front indicator LED which flashes if there's an alert (such as queued IM or text message)? I can't find any info one was or the other. I have this on my LG and I really love it!

My account is postpaid. I walked into my local T-Mo store and added a line, they waived the $15 sim activation, and I walked out the store with $0 to pay...

Re: Front LED Indicator. It looks like it does. Waiting for the person who is getting the phone before setting it up, so can't say for sure, but it looks like it...

I have postpaid as well, don't need to activate a line, did they just give you a sim card to put in your phone without doing anything to the phone? I'm wondering if I can just take the sim card out of my current phone and put it in the new one.

Thanks for the info!

You can take the sim card out of your current phone (assuming it's the same size) and use that. They actually got a sim card out of their stock, activated that, then swapped that sim for the prepaid one I had (there is no difference between the sim cards, just depends on what account it is activated on). That way they didn't have to charge me. You should be good to go...
