$30 is a good deal for someone needing a dual-SIM phone. Only question is whether the 2nd SIM will work on 3G or not. Most older/cheaper phones can only run the 2nd SIM on 2G, which means it would have to be a T-Mobile or T-Mobile MNVO SIM, since AT&T has shut off 2G.

Edit: Found an answer. 2nd SIM does NOT support 3G. 2G only. Source [amazon.com].

Word of warning: these budget Alcatel phones come with a TON of bloatware and a horrible android skin that will download mammoth spyware/adware and weird UI gimmicks without any warning. They also are now farming out some their preinstalled system apps (like gallery and file manager) to shady Chinese outfits. If you buy a 16GB phone it will feel like you only have 4GB internal storage - the bloatware is that bad.

As in resell on ebay? I'll let you do the marketing research. I can only speak for myself: I bought a couple as Xmas presents during BF 2016 and even as gifts folks still have complaints: shoddy build and assembly, bloatware, storage shortage and unexpected UI "surprises" like an octopus animation [stackexchange.com]

Bought 1 yesterday. Santa Clarita store had a couple more. Seen some interesting, but complicated, ways to root this. Not much info out there.
