Deal Details

Phone is not listed online, $1.99 price on in store tag. Walgreens does not price match other Walgreens stores. My Best Buy said they would price match Walgreens with just the receipt

This is a crappy phone though. I've had numerous free flip phones over the years and this is by far the slowest phone I've ever used. There is considerable lag between when a key is pressed and when that key is confirmed on the screen and with the tone, enough to make you think you misdialed

Works with [ringplus.net] RingPlus until 4-17 [ringplus.net]. I wouldn't turn the phone on before RingPlus signup. I signed up 2 phones for RP. The first was turned on before RP registration and had alot of trouble connecting to RP because of it. The 2nd wasn't turned on before registration and connected immediately to RP

Calling is the only way. No online stock checkers. This isn't a popular phone so I wouldn't worry about calling

I'm thinking to give it to the very poor before the 17th.
The shitty FED just make it harder for the poor.
But I am not going to call every stores. Most of the time, Walgreen's employees just lie. Probably they are lazy to check.

I have this phone and the battery dies in about a day when NOT in use even with data disabled. Be prepared with a portable charger.

Picked up two of these last month for $1.99 during the Lumia 640 clearance. Activated them on the truly free 2 plan.

Sorry, I haven't been following the ringplus saga. If this is activated prior to the 17th, will it continue to work with ringplus after the 17th?

Okay, I read the ringplus link and I see that it will still work. Should have looked there first, but a lot of times these things aren't so clear.

So you got this to actually use as a daily phone?
Mom, is that you? Wink

I want so bad to give my mom a free phone (not this one) and account with R+, but too worried about whether she can handle the learning curve, managing usage like accidentally streaming youtube 24/7, hating listening to ads instead of ringtones when making calls.

So far the cons outweigh the pros of getting her off of her sluggish little smart-tracfone and giving her a Moto E, and paying for her top up, helping her port her number, etc.

I know - no good deed goes unpunished. shake head

To answer the burning question you may have - I am here for this phone's use as a placeholder only. Not just to TC it. I will try to find it locally.
