Edit:
"Lowest Price" so far
Mine (Boost Mobile edition manufactured in Feb. 2016) had Marshmallow 6.0 (not Lollipop), and had no issue in activating with RingPlus.
It only has 1gb ram, and thus is often lagging.

If you have a plan to use these phones on Ringplus before April 17, choose "store pick up" or "buy them directly at BB store". Before open the box, plus, use device checker for Ringplus eligibility [ringplus.net] first.



To clarify, you need to activate this phone on RingPlus by 4/16.
Starting 4/17, all prepaid phones must be activated on their original carriers for 12 months before they can be activated on R+. EEK!

Wow cheapest I've seen it!

Good deal even if limited on RAM/storage. Works good for what I use it for.

And if app can't be moved to SD card there's always another like it that can. Smilie

guys, im not trying to sound like a jerk or anything but... after my wife having several boost mobile phones with only 8gb I can only say RUN. I just got her a moto x used for cheaper than this but it has 16gb in it. Most of her phones had OS and bloatware from boost that took up literally 4 gb so it was like she was getting a 4gb phone instead of 8. she was always out of room, even when moving everything possible to sdcard. just sayin, you might want to look at somethin w higher memory even if it costs a bunch more because all of her 8gb phone were a major hassle. js

I'm planning to use this on RingPlus, is there any difference between the two that would lend it to be a better fit? Such as higher successful activation probability or anything similar?

It's true, but if you can buy Marshmallow 6.0 edition of LG G stylo, then you can see less bloatwares than usual boost mobile phones.

I was trying to buy Virgin mobile edition at BB, but RingPlue device checker showed me an error message. That's why I bought Boost mobile edition.

I was just looking at BB sales and about to mention this. Stylo II should be in BB by Friday http://www.prepaidphonenews.com/2...s-are.html

Of course it happens after the flash promo. The Flash is extended for M+ though

Notice the LG Duo is only $24 now, specs look different the LG Tribute II.

This can't be activated on Ringplus starting on April 17th. Don't buy it if that's your plan.

Just color I think. You maybe be able to root the virgin phone. You can root the boost stylo but if you reboot it will brick it.

With that said he stylo is a great phone. I have 2 and never had a problem that wasn't my fault. I bricked one but sent it in to LG and got it back fixed in 10 days.

You can put a 128 gb micro sd card into the stylo.

What are the main diff between LG Tribute II and LG Duo?
