Original price $99.99. Black Friday price now live!

If you want a phone that's far better than the $10 FP deal, this is the one to get.

Need it unlocked? Turn it on without the SIM card installed and use the AT&T website to request an unlock [att.com]. Select the "not a customer" option.
If you're already using another ATT MVNO (Cricket, etc) you can simply install your existing SIM before powering up and it will work; no need to unlock in that instance.

How to unlock this phone:
1. Do not turn the phone on, don't even open the box.
2. Go to this web site: https://www.att.com/deviceunlock/?#/
3. Check I have read and agree to the eligibility requirements to unlock my device.
4. This is super important, check Non-AT&T Mobility Customer
5. Fill out the form, including the IMEI number which is located on the Box
6. Submit
7. You will be sent an email with a link to confirm
8. Open your email and confirm
9. Anywhere from 1 hour to 48 hours you will be given an unlock code. It took 8 hours for me to receive mine.
10. Open up the box, put in your SIM from your Carrier and turn it on.
11. You will be prompted for the unlock code
12. Put it in and continue.

It's good for people who are dirt poor too. I can't afford a phone that costs more than two large pepperoni pizza. I can't really afford the pizzas either.

Thanks! Wish Best Buy wouldn't limit 1 per customer. Not everyone is trying to resell these. I could understand them not allowing someone to purchase 10 or more, but 4 for a family isn't unreasonable.

In theory it's unlockable... But I worry about it's ability to use band 12. I wish there was an AOSP rom.

does anyone know if this thing have "adaptive memory"

I hate these phones that are "8GB" and when you get them, they have 4GB of crap...and then the external storage doesn't act as internal memory so you can only have a few apps on it...annoying

edit...ah, 16GB...so probably true 12GBs...much better than true 4GBs....

Best Buy's web site says this phone has only 8GB of internal storage, but PhoneArena [phonearena.com]and AT&T's own site [att.com] say 16GB.

Nope, not with GoPhone. Their regular policy is 90 days. That said:

Turn the phone on for the first time with NO SIM installed. Do that just to get the IMEI. Then request the unlock online.
