  1. Please no more Sprint based phones as the Deal of the week. The limited coverage, no roaming, slow data, overpriced plans and Boost and Virgin phones being blocked from all MVNOs are bad enough but the worst thing is the poor call quality. People can't hear a word you say over the phone.

    1. I've had excellent luck with Virgin mobile up and down the east coast, I really think it's a location thing, for the $35 I am paying I feel I am getting a good value.

    2. Virgin is fine for some and this is the cheapest any LTE phone has been on VM.

    3. Responding to the : "please no more Sprint based phones" anon.

      Depending on what you want, the Virgin plans cost half as much as the ATT and Verizon plans. And if you are really concerned about "The limited coverage", you would be demanding Dennis not list any T-Mobile phones: as TMO has worse coverage overall than Sprint. And the "Boost and Virgin phones being blocked from all MVNO" is no more a problem than GSM phones being blocked from CDMA and vice versa... which you didn't mention.

      The truth is that this weekly (?) feature concerns the price of buying hardware. In this, Dennis is being complete and providing valuable information. In fact, I am impressed at the time Dennis takes to produce this extensive well organized list. Other blog posts compare the relative merits of the different services. As this post is about phone deals, and not services, it is not the place for a comparison of the relative value of the services of the carriers.

    4. I think you misunderstood my post. First of all I'm not demanding anything from Dennis I enjoy this website and the work Dennis does as much as anyone. "Virgin plans cost half as much as AT&T and Verizon plans" Not really Virgin's cheapest plan costs $35 with 2.5GB and 300 minutes. Cricket which runs on AT&T offers 2.5GB and unlimited minutes for $45 (on auto pay) only $10 more on a much better network. Red Pocket has a $35 plan with 2GB and 300 minutes on the Verizon network and I don't even like Red Pocket but they're on a network that works. So Virgin isn't half the price. "if you are really concerned about "The limited coverage" All four networks (including Sprint) have great coverage in my area but even where Sprint has coverage they have some sort of problem with voice quality which makes phone calls almost impossible. "the "Boost and Virgin phones being blocked from all MVNO" is no more a problem than GSM phones being blocked from CDMA and vice versa... which you didn't mention." Most AT&T and T-Mobile phones can be used on any of their MVNOs. On the other hand Virgin phones will only work with Virgin service as is also the case with Boost phones. Virgin and Boost plans cost more than those from Sprint MVNOs which is one of the reasons Sprint blocks Virgin and Boost phones from their MVNOs. AT&T and T-Mobile don't do this. "As this post is about phone deals, and not services, it is not the place for a comparison of the relative value of the services of the carriers." Since Virgin phones only work on the Sprint network and can only be used with Virgin plans the quality and value of the only service the phone works with is a deciding factor in the value of the phone at any price. "TMO has worse coverage overall than Sprint." In areas where both Sprint and T-Mobile have coverage T-Mobile's network works and offers fast data speeds, good call quality and you can use T-Mobile phones on any T-Mobile MVNO. Sprint's call quality is so poor it's almost unusable Sprint's 3G data is almost as slow as 2G and their LTE is the slowest of all the networks. Sprint based phones only work on the Sprint network and Sprint blocks Virgin and Boost phones from use on any of their MVNOs. My post was in no way an attack on this website, Dennis or this article. I was just pointing out the fact that we only have three good wireless networks and one broken network to choose from. And a Sprint based phone isn't a good deal at any price.

    5. The above is all a matter of opinion. When I think of "three good wireless networks and one broken network to choose from", the broken one is TMobile, because everywhere I go, all 3 are covered, except for that TMO. IMHO, a TMobile based phone isn't a good deal at any price, because all it can be used is as a doorstop. However, you won't ever see me recommending that Dennis reduce or remove TMobile coverage in his excellent resource web site, or exclude them from phone deals posts.

      Which drives home the point that Dennis is well justified in presenting phone deals, in phone deal posts, without any bias or exclusion whatsoever based on perception of relative merits of the carrier the phone is on.

      I understood exactly your "please no more Sprint based phones" comment... you specifically wanted Dennis to alter coverage based on your personal subjective experiences and opinions. It should be sufficient that Dennis is consistent and informative in labeling whether or not the phone deals are Sprint related, so you can ignore them. I have similar opinions toward TMO as you do toward Sprint, but never, ever would I ask that he exclude TMO from coverage.

      After all, Dennis tries to have an objective news site, of "prepaid phone news". Not just "news of phones from just the carriers I like".

      So, Dennis, please ignore those who want you to change how you do your weekly phone deals. I think you are handling it perfectly. Even if a lot of the phones are on a carrier I don't like.

    6. Again I don't think you understood anything I wrote. I never wanted or asked Dennis to exclude phones from any carrier or change the way anything is presented. It's funny you didn't reply to anything else I wrote. If you read my entire post you'll understand when I say the Sprint network is broken it's not based on coverage because even where Sprint has coverage their network doesn't work well phone calls almost don't work at all. Where T-Mobile does have coverage their network works as well as any other. That's why there are three networks that work and one (Sprint) that's broken. I hope that's simple enough for you to understand.

    7. I read exactly what you said. You using careless wording. or having abruptly changed your mind is not a failing on my part. You, "parent" Anon, did start out with "Please no more Sprint based phones as the Deal of the week."

      Which was a specific request for Dennis to exclude phones from a carrier and change the way this is presented.

      " It's funny you didn't reply to anything else I wrote."

      I did, correctly summarizing it as subjective opinion.

      "when I say the Sprint network is broken it's not based on coverage"

      Again, a subjective opinion. Which has no place in this phone deals post.

      "phone calls almost don't work at all"

      Which is your experience and opinion, and, honestly, quite a bit of hyperbole. My experience? TMobile literally has "phone calls that don't work" at all due to zero coverage where I am. And Sprint call quality, dropped calls, etc are the same as Verizon and AT&T... and yes I've used all 3. Where Sprint does have coverage their network works as well as any other. Whether someone claims one, or more, networks as "broken" depends on which part of the country they are in. All of this, something you fail to understand, is subjective, anecdotal, and opinion-based, and out of place as a "news" criterion.

      Likewise, ATT and Verizon are also "broken" networks according to those who have made comments on different posts about these networks not covering them. And likewise, these subjective opinions have no place in Dennis' weekly post, just like yours and my subjective, experience-based anecdotes about T-Mobile and Sprint.

      Is what you say "simple" enough for me to understand? I understand your own words more than you do, going back to "Please no more Sprint based phones", your statement, which you directly contradict when you say you "never wanted or asked Dennis to exclude phones from any carrier "... also your statement. It's basic logic: you directly contradict yourself.

      These subjective opinions and experiences of yours and mine have no place in "Prepaid Phone News' regular Sunday Prepaid Phones on Sale this Week feature listing all the best US prepaid phone deals in one place."

      In any case, I'm sure Dennis B. tires of this discussion, and there is no chance he is going to eliminate 25% of the phone deals listed because the carrier the phones are on make one anonymous commenter feel icky.

    8. Yet again you have proven that you either can't read or didn't read my entire post.

      "TMobile literally has "phone calls that don't work" at all due to zero coverage where I am"

      Well of course if T-Mobile doesn't have coverage in your area it's not going to work. I said where Sprint does have coverage call quality is so poor it's unusable and it's not just me. In areas where T-Mobile has coverage calls sound as good as on any other network that has coverage unlike Sprint.

      "Sprint call quality, dropped calls, etc are the same as Verizon and AT&T"

      I (and many other people) don't think so. Many people have said including Dennis that call quality on Sprint isn't as good as on the other three networks. Call quality on Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile (where T-Mobile has coverage) sounds the same meaning calls work on those three networks.

      "Please no more Sprint based phones" was never meant as a request and I think if Dennis thought it was he would have said something. What I did mean by it was I would like to buy an LTE phone for only $40 but not if it only works on Sprint.

  3. Does anybody know whether the Blu Life View Tab at Frys is L800L or L800U, or does the customer have a choice? You get either HSPA+ on either Band I (2100 Mhz) for abroad or AWS Band IV for 1700/2100 for T-Mobile USA (non-refarmed markets), but not both on the same device, depending on the model number.

      I hope this answers your question. I have and it works great on T-Mobile. It actually worked better than my HP Slate 7 Wi-Fi version.

  4. Virgin Mobile and Boost can afford to partially subsidize the cost of their phones due to their high prepaid prices.

    1. The $39.99 price for the F3 is from Best Buy not Virgin Mobile so the high plan prices Virgin and Boost charge for their service as nothing to do with it. Best Buy probably put the phone on sale because they weren't selling.

    2. I agree, and I hope thqt their pricing becomes more competitive .

    3. The $39.99 price on the F3 is probably due to a couple of factors:
      1. The device is nearing EOL and Virgin and is clearing out inventory. Virgin subsidizes phone prices in the wholesale channel too and likely cut its price to BestBuy.
      2. Sprint is under pressure to reverse its subscriber loses. Subsidizing prepaid phones is a less expensive way to get new customers and keep current ones than cutting plan plan prices.

  5. Dennis, I am looking for a mid-range phone but don't know much about the functions. I am looking at the LG Optimus F6 and LG Optimus L70, I can't tell what the difference except that F6 is the LTE phone. Can you help explain which phone is better and why? Also, which phone is easier to unlock? Thanks.

    1. See this Slickdeals post for an extensive list of the differences between the two phones. Unlocking is equally cheap and easy for both.

    2. L70 also doesn't have NFC, and Amex/Isis is running several promos for their NFC payment system. You can easily make $150 with the offers.
