    Replies
    1. The seller doesn't say but as the phone is new it's likely to be running the 4.2.2 Jellybean that the phone launched with. An OTA update to 5.0.1 Lollipop is available from AT&T.

  5. Android Phone Recommendation: Up to $150; to work on MetroPCS or other carriers.

    So, MetroPCS is forcing me to get a new phone because my phone, the LG Motion, operates on the CDMA network, which they are shutting down.

    I would like some recommendations with the following info / criteria in mind:

    1. A phone that works well after owning it for a year to a year and a half and downloading a lot of programs. I like to download lots of apps, try them out, keep them even if I am rarely using them to see what they might evolve to when upgraded. So far, with the two Android phones I have owned in my lifetime, they seem to get extremely slow after about a year to a year and a half. Right now, with my LG Motion, I experience the following problem: I try to make a call by holding a digit in order to dial via SpeedDial. Nothing happens. I try this few times. Minutes later, the phone makes the call. As I am talking, about 1/2 a minute later, the phone makes another call to the same number I called and am connected to. If I disconnect and re-dial again, and if that call goes through, at some point, the other calls go through. All my attempts are known by the phone and executed in a delayed manner.
    I often find myself ending programs via the Task Manager, which does seem to help.

    I am thinking a phone with more than 1 GB of internal RAM would help with this problem, but that seems impossible with the budget I am setting for a new phone.

    2. A non KitKat (4.4) phone because that version can't write to the sd card. So, anything after 4.0.4 is fine, meaning 4.1, 4.2, 5.0, but not 4.4.

    3. Any carrier that offers a $50 or less plan that offers one the best bang for your buck. I switched over from Straight Talk to MetroPCs because my phone was getting slow but mostly because I was saving $5 per month (from $45 to $40) and being offered the same or more.

    From what I have read online, Straight Talk slows one's speed after a certain limit or for certain tasks like viewing movies or tethering--something along those lines, so I think Straight Talk would not be a choice.

    Others like Cricket and maybe Sprint, or others that I don't know about, might be good options.

    Ideally I would like a phone that can be used on multiple carriers--i.e. an unlocked phone, but that then limits my options.

    Also, so far I have been happy with MetroPCs, plus, if I stick with them, I am looking forward to getting my 1GB of 4G speed per month, which is what one gets for my $40 plan AND a GSM phone. With my CDMA, I only get 500MB.

    4. A LTE phone. Right now, the LG Leon from MetroPCs is looking like a nice choice. It's also has Android 5.0 Lollipop!

    5. A phone that costs $150 or less. I dislike the idea of paying more than that for a phone. $99 is a price I prefer. I would however pay up to $200 for very compelling reasons, something like: Phone X offers such and such features, which will allow you to do such and such and is only found in pricier phones, which won't come down in price at least for a year or more or most likely won't be available in newer lower end phones for a while, or Phone X offers such and such in terms of performance and you will see and appreciate the difference.

    Right now the Samsung Galaxy S4 on eBay is looking like it fits into the category of compelling reasons, though it's $34 higher than my already high budget of $200.00. Though at this time I don't know what version of Android it has.

    6. A New Phone; Not used and not refurbished.

    7. A phone with at least (preferably more than) 5 GB of internal memory / ROM

    8. A phone with expandable storage / it has a microSD card slot.

    To those that read all of this and provide recommendations, I thank you very much. It is truly appreciated.

    1. The Android slow down after time issue can be fixed by doing a factory reset.
      The MetrpPCS LG Leon meets all your requirements:
      Lollipop
      1 GB RAM
      8 GB internal storage
      LTE
      Under $150 new

      Delete
    2. I have never done the factory reset and I don't know if things like apps that were downloaded from the Android market but that are now no longer available will be restored to my phone.

      Yes, I know the LG Leon meets all my requirements, which I was very surprised and happy about when I discovered that earlier today. I was however curious about lots of other things, such as is there a better carrier I can go with, that will offer me a better plan (especially more GB per month) and that still has a very good phone meeting all my requirements. I would like this next phone that I purchase to be in use for anywhere from maybe 2 - 5 years and still performing very well (don't know if that's realistic).

      I would like to know about this, which I am sure you would know the answer to. For the LG Leon, it's currently free via the use of the $49 Mail-In Rebate. However, according to this page: https://www.metropcs.com/network-upgrade.html, my phone qualifies for a $49 Instant Upgrade Credit. So... what happens in this case? Will the mail in rebate be disqualified and I get the phone outright free or will I get the phone free and can still send in the mail in rebate, thereby making $49?

      Delete
    3. A factory reset wipes the phone completely but doesn't touch the SD card. It doesn't restore anything. After the reset, your Google Contacts and Calendar and paid apps will be restored when you log back into your Google account. Other apps you will have to reinstall yourself provided they are still available.

      There are apps that let you back up apps and texts to the SD card.

      The instant and mail-in rebates are mutually exclusive. Instant rebates are for in store purchases and mail-in ones for online purchases.

      As a current MetroPCS CDMA customer I don't think you are eligible for either rebate. But you are eligible for a $54 credit toward a new phone when you upgrade your LG Motion to a GSM phone at a MetroPCS store. See MetroPCS CDMA to Shutdown 6/21 - Free Comparable GSM Phones For Current Customers for details.

    4. "A non KitKat (4.4) phone because that version can't write to the sd card. "

      That severe Android OS downgrade is a real kicker. Google sometimes makes some real boneheaded decisions... also where they insist that the Gmail Android app scrambles the inbox out of order and loses emails (which means I avoid using Gmail whenever possible)

      Delete
    5. A couple of things:

      1) While you say you'll be happy with 1GB of LTE on Metro, you should be even happier to find out that the $40/month plan includes *2* GB of LTE data before throttling.

      2) You'll want a Band 12 capable phone to handle T-Mobile's (rapid) deployment on that frequency = better indoor coverage. At this point, the only non-T-Mobile/Metro phones that I've seen with Band 12 support are the Alcatel Pop Icon 3 (which, now it's no longer at the pre-release price, is definitely out of your price range) and the Huawei SnapTo - a rather average phone - at $180. IIRC the Zenfone 2 doesn't support Band 12. FYI, the Leon supports Band 12,

      The short of this is to just get the LG Leon for free if you plan to stay with Metro. According to the Network Upgrade page at https://www.metropcs.com/network-upgrade.html, the CDMA credit stacks with the other in-store credit. So the Leon is $99 minus a $50 instant minus your $49 CDMA upgrade credit = $0. The additional $49 mail-in rebate on the Leon is a definite no-go with the CDMA upgrade. The rebate form states "Mail-in rebate not combinable with (a) CDMA instant upgrade credit ..."

      Delete
    6. For the CDMA upgrade offer, when MetroPCS says "Bring your current, qualifying phone to a participating MetroPCS store", do I just need to bring it and show it to them, or do I have to surrender the phone?

      Delete
    7. Surrender I believe. The terms of the offer say "Offer requires trade-in of qualifying device currently active on the MetroPCS network".

  6. Asus zenfone 2 has some really nice specs for $199 on Amazon. 5.5" full HD display, 1.8 GHz processor 2gb ram, LTE and micro SD card slot. Motorola moto g LTE seems to be an even better phone than the specs would suggest. And BLU Products have a large selection phones that will fit in your price range. I have owned two BLU devices and have liked them both( I'm using the BLU Life Pure now)

    1. I did just realize that the moto g is running 4.4

    2. You beat me to it about the Moto G running 4.4. I had looked up that phone previously and disqualified it because of that. I didn't know about the Asus zenfone 2, which looks very interesting. Thank you. That phone however has a 5.5 in screen. Wow! The largest size phone I have ever had is one with a 3.5 in screen, which is the LG Motion. I will have to find something, maybe stacks of paper that size, and see if that fits comfortably in my side pockets of my pants. (And yes, I know the phone is larger than the 5.5 b/c that only refers to the screen.) The BLU phones also seems to be running 4.4 as well.

    3. As far as you question about other plans, cricket is really hard to beat $35/mo(with auto pay) with tax included in that price and you get unlimited everything with data throttled after 2.5 GB. LTE speed is capped at 8 Mbps I believe. And Cricket runs on the at&t network so you should have better coverage than the old metro CDMA network

      Delete
    4. More ancedotes on Cricket. When I started with them at the end of last year, the CS was atrocious: I'd typically start out 60th or something in the queue and wait for someone who, 4 out of 5 time times, had no idea what they were doing.

      For the past two months, I have gotten in right away, and whoever I get, usually knows what they are doing.

      If this keeps up, I will rate Cricket CS as "excellent"

  7. Cricket's $35 plan with taxes included is hard to beat.

  8. Rob: Sprint's coverage is bad too, just like T-Mobile. At least with Straight Talk and Cricket, you can use it in a lot more places.

    As for your concern "From what I have read online, Straight Talk slows one's speed after a certain limit or for certain tasks like viewing movies or tethering--something along those lines, so I think Straight Talk would not be a choice."

    This is widely reported here as a problem for Straight Talk. However, I am easily able to watch Netflix over my approx 8mbps LTE on Cricket. I can also tether. but the word as to whether this is "approved" seems to change twice daily.

  9. Rob: No reason not to open yourself up to used phones as well.

  10. While I agree on the coverage issue, T-mobile's (MetroPCS) coverage is improving rapidly improving and will surpass Sprint- http://www.tmonews.com/2015/02/t-mobiles-lte-coverage-map-will-look-like-this-by-the-end-of-2015/ .

  11. There are 2 additional T-Mobile phone deals worth mentioning at Best Buy:

    1) The Samsung T199 candy bar feature phone is on sale for $6.99. If you can't wait for the 99 cent deal at T-Mobile and you're handy cutting SIMs, it's cheaper than the T-Mobile SIM starter kit at BB.

    2) The ZTE Zinger basic Android phone is $19.99 at Best Buy in store and online this week. BB Online shows $19.99 with the purchase of a plan, but if you click "Add to package" and select "No plan" it stays at $19.99.

  12. I don't understand why you would promote a Samsung Galaxy S4 from Verizon when in sense it is a locked phone purchase for at least 6 months under their rules.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The Verizon S4 is a good deal for current and prospective Verizon customers. An unlocked version of the S4 is also featured.

      Delete
    2. I was really considering the S4 but all of the reviews I read about it are surprisingly mediocre, mostly due to lots of negative reviews about the phone being very susceptible to getting hairline cracks on the screen, a common design flaw in that model, and of course that is not covered under warranty. This leads me to a question I have always had: When I see a brand new S3 or S4 being advertised now, in May 2015 (even on reputable sites like Cricket's or Boost's own sites), even though these phones first came out 2-3 years ago, are these newly manufactured phones (say, made in the last 3-4 months), or are they excess inventory that has been sitting around for the last 2-3 years? In other words, is Samsung still currently manufacturing these models, or do they now just manufacture the newer models (like the S6 and maybe still the S5)?

  15. If anyone reading this is within the 14-day Buyer's Remorse period with a Samsung S6 or S6 Edge 32 model, you can exchange it for a 64 GB model at no cost. Take it back to the place you bought it for the exchange. If you purchased the 64 GB version, you will get a $80 credit. If you buy the 32 GB model today, you will get a $50 rebate, or you can have the 64 GB model for the same price as the 32 GB model.
