Thing is, i am seeing tons of these exhibit brand new on CL for less than $100, so kinda curious what's up with these phone. Suck or?
No it does not suck at all, but it isn't the fastest phone. It can be unlocked for world use, but it does not have the 2100 band (so no Japanese coverage).
Remember, this comes with a ton of extras that your CL phones will not have.
