Available for in-store pickup only.

No, this will not work with RingPlus.

Bands?

EDGE (2.5G): 850MHz, 900MHz, 1800MHz, 1900MHz
HSPA+ (3.5G): 850MHZ, 1700+2100MHz (AWS), 1900MHz
LTE (4G): Bands 2, 4, 5, 7, 12*, 17

*Band 12 was removed in the first OTA update. If you completely reflash to the launch 5.0.2 firmware, you should be able to use Band 12 on T-Mobile, but only for data, no VoLTE.

SIM Locked?
Yes, but you can unlock it before turning it on by filling out the AT&T Device Unlock form here [att.com]. When it asks "Are you an AT&T wireless customer?", select No.
If it doesn't go through the first time, try multiple times. If all else fails, buy an unlock code from Ebay, usually just costs a few bucks.

Root and Unlockable Bootloader?
No and no. The AT&T/GoPhone/Cricket XT1527 and the Verizon XT1528 do not qualify for the Motorola Bootloader Unlock website. All other variants do. The only way to get root is by flashing via TWRP recovery, and the only way to flash an unsigned recovery is by unlocking the bootloader.

Marshmallow?
Motorola has stated that they will not be releasing the Marshmallow update to US variants. Since the bootloader is locked, there is no way to flash another variant's firmware or a custom ROM.

I think a lot of people are still clinging onto the $10 price of the Moto E from last Black Friday. Of course compared to that price, this is not a "good" price, but $30 for this phone, new, and should be easily un-lockable, is not a bad price IMO. Plus, this will work on AT&T (and t-mobile if unlocked) without any tweaking like you had to do with the $10 one from Black Friday; that Moto E was made for Verizon.

It's a good price, but it's been this price several times in the past few months. I think everyone's waiting for the eventual drop to $20.

and even if you do all those tweaks you're still missing some bands on AT&T.

How hard will it be to unlock this, and how well will / could it work on T-Mobile.

I own both Moto E($10) and ZTE Zmax 2($25). You will be amazed what a terrific device ZTE Zmax 2 is. It is currently $60 at BB, but IMHO it holds very well with any $200-$400 class phone out there. Yes it's that good.

Moto E from AT&T again available @$29 BestBuy


http://www.bestbuy.com/site/at-t-.../6427144.p


Shipping is free for min order $35 so I added one microsd card.

Please delete the thread if repost. Thanks.


I think I don't need to repeat the steps for Unlocking the phone. It was already shared in previous deals and I hope they will work so I have ordered the phone. I will update if I would be successful in unlocking the phone. Amen
