For Moto E: Not Available for either Shipping or Store Pickup again on 3/12

Limit 5 at $29.99 each, if anyone needs to know.

Warning about Samsung S3. Newer Samsung Galaxy S3 Tri-band (SPH-L710T) might not meet Financial Eligibility Check; so might not work with Sprint MVNO's. 1 Person confirmed in the thread that their Sprint Samsung S3 Triband passed the FEC. But I would still be cautious.

FYI, the Verizon Moto E has both GSM and CDMA radios. In fact, most (if not all) of Verizon's current LTE phones have both GSM and CDMA radios and they're unlocked out of the box. You just need to switch from CDMA mode to GSM, then configure the APN settings. Sprint phones are a bit different however... First they're not domestic/international unlocked out of the box. The Sprint Samsung Galaxy S4 and above have both CDMA and GSM as well. The Sprint Moto E only has CDMA (I think... according to the specs I read).

I have personally installed a T-Mobile ROM on an unlocked Sprint Galaxy S4 just for kicks... And it worked fine, unfortunately however, it doesn't have the LTE bands that Tmobile uses. I've also tried this Sprint S4 on AT&T (Cricket) and it worked fine as well. Again... No LTE.

I have personally used a Verizon Moto E and Verizon Samsung Galaxy S4, S5, Note 3, Note 4, and Note Edge on AT&T. All worked fine... Even on LTE, but only on band 4.

If you still don't believe me, look me up on XDA Developers.
I bought my Sprint Moto E at best buy for $40 a few months ago and activated it on ring plus without an issue

Just cant bring myself to buy a ZTE - bad impression from much older phone.

Great prices but comparing specs with LG Volt 2 for $49, Volt 2 has the largest screen (5"), largest battery (2540 mAh) and by far the best screen-to-body ratio (70.63 %). Considering all that is there any reason to pick any of the phones in this deal over Volt 2?
