this has 2gb of ram a 3000 mah battery & 720p display. mote e only has 1gb 2390 mah battery and a 540x 960 display.. so imo id say this phone is more midrange than low end. but still a great deal for the price! definitely worth twice what the moto e cost. edit: this also has twice the internal memory. so not quite comparable to the moto e
Just got this phone from Bestbuy for $49.99 thanks to a Walmart pricematch. For $49 or $59 this is a good deal.

Portable Wi-fi Hotspot app [google.com] works with a t-mobile sim. The app is a bit clunky, but it works.

Awesome phone. Wish I had a reason to buy one, I'm already trying to sell a Huawei Ascend Mate 2 4G and a BLU Studio Energy without any luck. The last thing I needs is another phone laying about.

it's hard as fuuuk to sell these no name brand phones. simple reason is no one is actually searching for them

you are better off giving them to a friend of family member. like your parents.

Pantech p5000 : Mini Sim (2FF)
Zmax 2 : Micro Sim (3FF)

Option:
1. You can cut it yourself with this PDF [thechinacellphone.com]

2. You can take the SIM card from Zmax Package, bring it to ATT store have them change it for you.

* Caution: I heard if your are currently on NON-smart phone plan, you can NOT just swap the SIM to a smart phone.
