2015 Motorola Moto E LTE Now Available From Boost Mobile and Sprint Prepaid

Sprint announced today that the brand new Motorola Moto E LTE Android phone is now available for Boost Mobile and Sprint Prepaid for $99.99. The Boost version, which is white, is available on the Boost Mobile site. The Sprint Prepaid Moto E, which is black, is at Best Buy and Radio Shack.The Moto E will also be offered in black starting March 9 for Virgin Mobile's Data Done Right plans, exclusively at Walmart.

The Moto E LTE shares some of its features with the original Moto G LTE including a 4.5 inch screen, quad core Snapdragon processor and 5MP autofocus main camera. However the screen has the 540×960px resolution of the original Moto E rather the the G's 720x1280px.

Other Moto E LTE specs are:

  • Android 5.0 Lollipop
  • Enhanced LTE (aka Sprint Spark)
  • Front facing VGA camera, 5 MP main camera with 720p 30fps HD Video capture
  • 8 GB internal memory, 1 GB RAM, support for microSD cards up to 32 GB
  • 802.11 b/g/n WiFi
  • Bluetooth version 4.0 LE
  • 2390 mAh non-removable battery
  • Accelerometer, Ambient Light, and Proximity Sensors
  • Water Resistant Coating
  • Dimensions: 129.9 x 66.8 x 5.2-12.3 mm (5.11 x 2.63 x 0.20-0.48 inches)
  • Weight: 145 grams (5.11 ounces)
The Moto E LTE looks like a great addition to Sprint Prepaid Group's device line up. Hopefully it will be possible to root it and unlock the bootloader like you can with Boost's Moto G.

    1. It's available now on the Motorola site for $149.99 for the LTE version and $119.99 for the 3G one. Both are unlocked.

    2. Do you know if Motorola is making use of the 64 bit features of the 410 processor? Seems like the 810 hasn't been widely adopted either ...

    4. I see where the Moto E (2nd gen.) will be launching at Cricket Wireless on March 13th for $129.99.

  2. Too bad for the Sprint MVNOs, *No Volt, *No Tribute, No Moto G, *No Core Prime, *No Moto E, basically no decent low to mid level devices coming from Sprint Post-Paid, especially *Tri-Band devices.

    1. My LG Tribute tri-band phone is working fine on RingPlus. I bought it to use, not resell or hoard. Too bad for people who didn't want to use theirs.

  3. I didn't say anything about pre-existing devices did I, just that there is little going forward! "Most" go to the MVNOs to save and have little interest in using high dollar devices, why BYOD is popular and Sprint has really put the breaks on it in the near term.

    By the way, you are also married to R+. So don't entertain the idea of doing any sort of ESN change or moving the device to another service except the one it was intended for, enjoy it while it lasts!

    1. Why would anyone on RingPlus entertain the idea of moving a Sprint device to another Sprint MVNO or Sprint proper? To pay more lol? To get less for more money... yeah that sounds very likely. About the only thing anyone on any Sprint MVNO should be concerned of is that they have to do anything that would require reactivation because of how messed up Sprint has implemented its newest check - so no phone is safe, even those that are Sprint post paid devices. There are various reports that phones you least expect to get tripped by the new checks are appearing as ineligible to be activated. This has nothing to do with RingPlus or any Sprint MVNO, and everything to do with Sprint and its ever expanding (desperate) anti-consumer practices.

  4. I'm seriously wondering if I could by the Virgin Mobile version of this phone without activating it on a data done right plan. I like the plan I'm on now ($35 Unlimited Voice/Messaging/250MB data), and I don't want to move to a higher plan for extra data that I can't fully take advantage of since Sprint LTE coverage is poorly distributed where I live.

    1. AFAIK, Data Done Right Phones can only be activated on Data Done Right plans.

    2. Why would you want the Virgin Mobile version? When you can buy it from Boost and get unlimited talk and text with 2.5GB of data for the same $35 you're paying now.

    3. The Virging mobile single line data done right plan starts at $35 and include 2.5GB. That sait it only comes with 300 minutes so the point remains, if Boost offers unlimited talk and text as well as 2.5gb, why would anyine in their right mind go with Virgin? Because it's a cool name? Other than dealing with auto top ups on Boost (only way to get 2.5GB), Boost Mobile is a no brainier.

  5. Will the Moto E be available from AT&T or T-Mobile?

    1. I don't know but you can use the unlocked ones from the Motorola site.

  6. Are these phones dual mode GSM / CDMA and can you explain why should your average (tech competent) person care if phone is rootable and bootloader unlockable? Just curious. I've been using an Android for over the year and I haven't had the need (yet) to do this (on a GSM carrier for what it's worth).

    1. These are CDMA/LTE only phones with no GSM support

      Root is useful for removing otherwise non removable bloatware, running a firewall to better control data usage, using root apps like Titanium Backup which lets you backup apps AND their data.

      A unlocked bootloader lets you install custom ROMs and make and restore nandroid backups which are full image backups of everything (OS, apps & data).

  7. Can the Boost version be activated on any service (Sprint MVNO) other than Boost?

    Can the Sprint Prepaid version be activated on any service (Sprint MVNO) other than Sprint Prepaid?

    1. Sprint Prepaid phones can't be used on Sprint MVNOs until after they have been used on Sprint Prepaid for 12 months.

    2. A Sprint Prepaid LG Volt I just bought from Best Buy works on RingPlus (a Sprint MVNO).

  8. Verizon is now selling the Moto E (2nd gen.) on its Prepaid Service. The price is $99.99.

    1. No, you can only use Sprint Prepaid phones on Sprint Prepaid.

    2. Dennis, Can I buy a Sprint prepaid Moto e 4g and unlock it using root and network app for free? And make it run with all gsm operators?

      Delete
    3. That only works with the Verizon Moto E, as far as I know.
