    Too bad they don’t have the att one :(

  • T_Dizzle

    Does this use a prepaid Sim card or does it use built in cdma radios?

    • Dia Mortensen

      Built in CDMA radio. No SIM slot.

  • vinvangogh

    id buy this phone if it was not prepaid. why dont they make one available for people on contract at verizon?

  • Michael Tran

    Description says HSPA+ but it’s the verizon pre-paid version. Does it work on T-mobile as well? I think the description may be off.

    • Rayan Bouajram

      This specific model does not have a sim card. Unless there’s some hack I’m unaware of, I’m certain you won’t be able to get T-mobile service on it.

      • Dia Mortensen

        This phone has no place to put a SIM.

    • Medion

      The listing is wrong. CDMA model supports only triband CDMA, no GSM/HSPA.

  • JBrowne1012

    Easily the best phone under $100

  • Medion

    It’s also $70 at Walmart today ($80 for the Boost Mobile version). For those wondering, this is the same as the $179 GSM 8GB non-LTE variant, but comes with a CDMA-ONLY radio. Will not work on GSM providers nor will it accept a sim card. The cost of the phone is partially subsidized as it’s locked to one pre-paid provider, so they expect to get their money back from you in the long run.

    My son likes to take both my and my wife’s phones to use the front-facing camera and a few kids games. Due to this, we were thinking of grabbing the Verizon model and using it as a wifi-only device for him. Would be a cheap way to save some wear and tear on our phones. The fact that the UI is MOSTLY the same as my GPE (no GEL, but close enough) and can use the same camera app means that he won’t revolt due to something being drastically different.

    I just need to ensure that this device doesn’t need to be activated on Verizon’s network with a minimum initial airtime purchase. I literally only want to pay $70 + tax and be done with it.

    • Dia Mortensen

      I bought this phone phone for the sake of having an unactivated medium/high end android for use over wifi only and you DO NOT have to activate it to enjoy it. So go ahead and get it, I highly recommend it.

  • phinn

    Would rather have this (with 4G) than any new Android phone announced so far this year.

    • Tony Lai

      Go buy it then.

  • Jason Farrell

    Nice deal on the phone, but the fact that it’s tied to Verizon, is pre-paid ONLY, and is not rootable, means it’s not that much of a bargain really. Verizon’s prepaid plans START at $45/mo (500MB 3G data), VS $30 on T-Mobile (5GB 4G data).

    Makes more sense to pay a little more for the unlocked Moto G for use on T-Mobile.

    • BigotPride

      Not everyone has GSM coverage in their neck of the woods. (like me) And I can’t stand the worse-than-dial-up data speed of MVNO’s like boost mobile (which is apparently unlockable. So even if my Moto G was unlocked, I would still go with Verizon.
