For a quick comparison between the two $20 phones (Huawei Union & Alcatel Elevate) from my reading of both threads & jotting down various info & comments see THIS POST Post also includes the link to phonescoop comparing these 2 phones

It supposedly has native tethering option. but the tethering menu doesn't show up in the settings menu. 3rd party apps get the hotspot icon to appear, but there is no internet for devices that connect to hotspot. This is not a RingPlus issue, it is a phone issue.

Be Warned. The screen on this phone is an TFT and not an IPS. If you want an IPS display phone, get an Moto E instead.

Good, Cheap phone for Ringplus!


To activate new prepaid Sprint, Boost Virgin Mobile phones on Ringplus before APRIL 17!!!!

but it got more stars from users on BB, guess that doesn't count. I voted for you Tribute II thread, one of my favorite phones, worth paying a little more.

What you mean? I've never had a problem using a phone by either carrier.

something to think about I was on vm and now boost which I like more. I have old phones from vm which one is going on ring+ others in garbage. never going back to vm, but boost great and cheap so I would try to get boost prepaid now so when ring+ goes down they will go to boost easy.

Ringplus isn't going anywhere... unless Sprint goes, then bye bye Boost, too.
