Meh...I read far too many people that have problems with the Idol. I've seen it in store and while it's a beautiful phone, the negatives push me away.

At least in my case the hesitation /stuttering issues were resolved with 6. The problem was with 5.1.

$50 plus one month fee $40, still great deal, compared with Moto G4.

20% of the reviews on Amazon for the unlocked Idol 3 got either 1 or 2 stars. This is a pretty high percent of negative reviews, many for build quality or easily broken screens. This phone might be worth a shot at $50 but be prepared to replace it fairly early if you get it.

wish there was more competition for truly multi carrier GSM/CDMA phones.. seems the smaller companies just coast off exclusives from small tier carriers like cricket or metro

Thank you your purchase. Unfortunately, your unlock code was not available/Not Found on the database/server so I have issued full refund and cancel this order through EBay.
Thank you.

I got the refund after unlocking failed.

The Idol 3 specs out well but I think it's safe to say that the ZTE Zmax2 Gophone for $50.00 is probably the better deal for Cricket.

Did you get it unlocked by some other means?

No, I submitted a ticket to Cricket Wireless. They said they will give me a call in 3 business days.

They can unlock your device if you are in $70 unlimited plan.

Just switch to the $70 plan on the last day of the billing cycle for a tiny prorated fee and get it unlocked same day.

I did this a couple of months ago with no problems; it's possible the policy has changed since then.
