Prepaid Phones on Sale This Week Dec. 6 - 12

Black Friday and Cyber Week are over but there are still lots of good deals available on prepaid and unlocked phones. Welcome to Prepaid Phone News' regular Sunday Prepaid Phones on Sale this Week post listing the best current US prepaid and unlocked phone deals.

This week's Deal of the Week is the Cricket iPhone 5s on the Cricket website and in Cricket stores for $199.99 for the 16 GB model and $249.99 for the 32 GB version.  Update: sold out online.

The Cricket iPhones are brand new and are cheaper than their refurbished equivalents on eBay.

There are a couple of catches with this deal. The iPhones are locked to Cricket and you must purchase at least $40 in airtime when you buy them. That means this deal is really only a deal for current or potential Cricket customers.

The iPhone 5s has a 4 inch 1136x640 px "Retina" display and excellent 8 MP main camera and 1.2 MP front facing camera for selfies.

  3. Hey Dennis is there a way that you can unlock the cricket Iphone 5s for other gsm carriers?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Our phones work best on the Cricket network, but we'll provide the unlock code if you meet the following requirements:

      The device you want to unlock has been active for at least six (6) months of paid service.
      The device you want to unlock is designed for use on and is currently locked to Cricket's network.
      Your device hasn't been reported as lost or stolen.
      Your device isn't associated with a fraudulent account.
      If you meet these requirements and would like to unlock your device, please call or chat with a Cricket Support Advocate or visit your local Cricket Store.

    2. Once the cricket iPhone 5S is unlocked from cricket what services can it be used on? I just bought one and that would be good to know for when my six months is up or for when I go to sell it since it is harder to sell a cricket phone

    3. An unlocked Cricket iPhone 5s will work on AT&T and T-Mobile and their MVNOs and just about every GSM operator in the world.

      Sure beats trying to read every single letter.


      "Unlocked T-Mobile LG G3 for $219.99 on eBay"

      By the way, I saw one of these as a display model at a Best Buy. Unlike the rest of the phones, this one had the anti-theft tether thing glued smack dab on in the middle of the face of the phone, leaving the back with its camera, hideous hell-bent for leather surfacing, and misplaced volume buttons as the main thing to show.

      Seems odd to glue a big anti theft device on the face of a phone.

      Delete
    3. Thieves can remove the back cover and take the phone but defacing the front with a glued-on tether does ruin the shopping experience!

      Delete
    4. It also showed off the worst features of the G3: terrible volume button placement, and its "1972 Polaroid Camera Chic" leather surface.

      Delete
  5. I briefly looked at the AT&T GoPhone ZenPhone 2E and the ZTE Maven at Best Buy the other day, and both appear to be decent phones. Frankly, I was surprised how good the Maven looked and worked with some minor playing around in the store. ZenPhone is too big for my taste, but very thin--unusually thin and light. GoPhones are easily unlockable if you haven't been an AT&T customer and you request the unlock code before activating the phone on any network.

    1. Dont buy the maven. it is junk. I had one last ~ 1 month. Buy a Lumia 640.

      Delete
    2. Yeah, I really like the Lumia 640 too and I have bought one for someone for Xmas already, but Windows phones are not for everyone. Anyone have thoughts on the ZenPhone 2E? Not many test reports out there.

      Delete
    3. Recent news that Microsoft is abandoning Windows Phone for "Surface Phone", and that major app developers are abandoning it. The Lumia 640 should be a good one if you plan to use the browser, camera, and talk/text (i.e. typical dumbphone/feature phone), but the app experience is quite sparse and a dead end.

      The ZTE Maven does indeed get poor ratings on Amazon. As does the Zenphone.

      Delete
    4. Latest news is that MSFT Win10 new development tools let developers write apps that work on PC, tablets and phones. Very few developers are abandoning Win10 development. Win10 for phone is not going away. Continuum lets you plug the phone into a large external monitor and keyboard and use it like a PC. MSFT is investing a lot in integration across all devices (like Apple has now, but productivity focused).
      BTW, I really like the Lumia 640. I bought it for my sister to upgrade her 635, but may get one for myself. Screen, camera and camera app are excellent. V. Good OS, mobile data and battery performance, and it has Band 12 support.

    5. More scaling back of the failed platform:

      http://phandroid.com/2015/11/16/microsoft-might-not-bring-android-apps-to-windows-after-all/

      And the failure continues, which results in these great fire-sale prices for these Lumia's:

      http://wmpoweruser.com/windows-phones-market-share-was-1-6-in-q3-2015/

      "Windows Phones however did not join in this success, seeing their lowest shipments since 2012, only hitting 5.8 million, and not enough to deserve a mention by the IDC.

      "Microsoft has said this was in line with their expectations and strategy, but at only 1.6% market share it is clear Windows phones will now only succeed or fail as part of the Windows 10 universal app ecosystem, as such low numbers are not attractive enough to sustain an independent application market.

      Microsoft hoped to attract other smartphone vendors to take over the volume of the market, and if this strategy does not succeed over the next 2 quarters I believe, already being well past the beginning of the end, we may be heading towards the end of the end of Windows phones."

      Such accounts/predictions are a lot more solid than Microsoft press releases about new initiatives that never end up materializing.

      Screen, camera, and camera app of course remain excellent. As is the browser, apparently. A friend of mine is using a Nokia temporarily (in between an Android and an iPhone she will get soon) and that is all that it does, pretty much.

      Delete
    6. ^ Hind-sight is 20-20 re. the previous strategies that did not work.
      Win10 universal apps will make a difference, but everybody has to wait to see whether it's enough.
      Too early to write the obit.

      Delete
    7. According to IDC, Windows phone is back up to 2.6% of the market.

      I just checked the Windows app store and every app I want is there now.
      Look under top free apps and top paid apps and see for yourself.
      For example I use the Opera Mini browser to save on data costs and because it's standards compliant, and it's there.

      With Continuum, Surface phone, Universal apps and device integration across the Win ecosystem I think they have a shot. They need more devices that support Continuum.

      Delete
  6. The Windows app store is limited to the point of even if they came out with a good high specs phone. Nobody that has good knowlegde would want to buy it. I sold a Lumia 640 XL and Lumia Icon because of the limted app supports. They were good phone. What the point of having a good phone if the app store suck.

    1. Have to agree here. I just finished testing the Nokia Lumia 640. Great phone and screen, but sadly, windows phone just doesn't cut it for me. I don't use many apps but here are the basics I use, NONE of which are available for windows phone: Firefox browser, Chrome browser, google maps, gmail (of course you can use it thru outlook however), Talkatone, and GPS Essentials.

      If you're ok using only Internet Explorer for your browser, and dont care about apps, then it might work for you. I really like the Nokia HERE maps and nav which work great. Lastly, the camera was DOA. Just gives the error "Something went wrong" and no options to do anything about it. Done wasting time on this one and returning it today. bummer...

    1. In the US Samsung only sells phones though carriers. Verizon sells the J1 but none of the other carriers have picked up any of the A and J series phones. The Core Prime and Grand Prime, which are similar, are available though most operators.

  10. Tried to get the Cricket Nokia Lumia 1320 LTE Windows Phone phablet $49.99 (reg $119.99) as a gift for my brother who already has Cricket but would be a Christmas gift to upgrade him. They don't make it easy at all to do this, mostly impossible without asking him for all account info and tipping him off, or paying for a separate activation which isn't needed. Merry Christmas, Cricket!

    Same holds true if you wanted to buy it outright for any other purposes unless you can find it at a b&m and are able to purchase without activation.

    ReplyDelete
  11. That is one thing I hate about Cricket they make you pay for activation of 40 to add a line or upgrade to get the phone. It's only a benefit if your already a customer and wanted to upgrade then the 40 goes into your account as a credit.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I have a question regarding the T-mobile online deal, LG Leon+$40 refill card. I bought it online and received phone and $40 card. How to use the refill card? Is this for new activation only? I thought i can use the refill
    pin alone, but tried and failed at refill (invalid pin). I don't want to activate a new account. I'm wondering how actually t-mobile activate the pin. Called t-mobile CS, still not clear :(. Any ideas? Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. As far as I know the refill card is just an ordinary refill card. There's a PIN code on the back hidden by a black bar that you scratch off with a coin to reveal the PIN code.

      If you have an active T-Mobile prepaid account you can apply the PIN to your account at my.t-mobile.com using a PC browser or at m.web2go.com using the phone's browser or by calling *233 (*ADD) on the phone or 877-778-2106 from another phone.

      If you get an error you are either entering the PIN incorrectly or you have a PIN that's been previously used or is invalid. If you are sure you are entering it correctly call T-Mobile prepaid support at 611 on your T-Mobile phone or 877-778-2106 with any phone between 6 AM and 10 PM local time. If you get a rep who isn't being helpful, hang up and call until you reach someone competent.

    2. Thanks Dennis! I called 1-877-778-2106 and was told the pin was invalid. Then I was transferred to another rep and she told me I must activate a new phone number. Anyone had experience using this kind of refill card?

      Delete
    3. I never heard of that. Call back and ask them to replace the invalid PIN with one that works.

    4. Will call again tomorrow. Thanks!

    1. Got this for a gift for the $29 deal and thus far I'm really liking this phone for that price! I also picked up the tracfone BYOP activation kit for under $3 and got it going today, no problems! Finally, got me a new 4G LTE (verzion) on tracfone! Speedtests are faster than my home DSL WIFI (thats a whole nother project!) Kinda wish I'd picked up 2 of these so I could keep one for myself, cause this one is going to the better half come Christmas. She's been stuck on dismal Verzion 3G speeds for over a year now- she deserves better!

  15. I used this column to get a great deal on a Moto X, Gen 1 Verizon XT1060 a few months ago. Loved the phone until I installed the 5.1 Lollipop update.
    Verizon has blocked the APN menu so I cannot edit the APN, and mobile data stopped working.

    Motorola says Vzw did this in their carrier bundle, but they have the ability to edit the APN.
    Vzw tech spt says they are only allowed to edit the APN for customers, and will only change it to a Vzw APN.
    Short of unlocking the bootloader and hacking the Moto X software settings, I haven't found a solution.
    I recommend that everyone who has a XT1060 stay with 4.4 KitKat. Motorola only provides carrier bundles for the Developer Edition and the Pure Edition, so it may be difficult to flash the earlier software.

    1. So verizon effectively locked your phone to verizon??

      Delete
    2. For mobile data, yes. The Moto X works for talk and text. Since the Moto XT1060 was sole unlocked, it met the FCC terms. But locking the data settings menu with an OS update? Who knows. Vzw did not force me to upgrade, but they did not warn me either.
      The Moto E does not work with GSM SIMs at all. Vzw says their policy of selling unlocked LTE phones only applies if the phone can be unlocked. They apparently tell Motorola to cripple the Moto E hardware so they can say it cannot be unlocked.

      Delete
    3. I tried to unlock the bootloader using fastboot so I could root the Moto X. I obtained and entered the unlock string. Motorola said my Verizon Moto X, regular edition is not eligible. I'm stuck. Looks like I will have to sell the phone.

    4. Maybe this method for the Verizon Moto E LTE would work: (5.0.2+5.1) (UPDATED 12/3/2015) How to: Use Verizon Moto E (2015) on ANY GSM network - xda-developers. It doesn't require root although it does require a PC with ADB installed.

      Delete
    5. Thanks, Dennis. I tried the 5.1 instructions when you first posted them:
      I installed the basic Android sdk tools, the latest Java version and a Java sdk.
      I ran the Android app from the sdk tools directory to start the sdk manager.
      I copied and pasted the commands into Terminal on my Mac with the Moto E connected in USB Debug mode.
      The GSM menu option did not appear for selection.
      I have the USB drivers for Mac OS installed.
      Did I miss something?

      Delete
    6. I don't think you missed anything. The instructions were for the Moto E not the Moto G. I was hoping they might work on the G but I guess not.

      Delete
    7. Oh, I see. I did not try these commands on the Moto X because I can already see the Global and GSM / UMTS options in the 'preferred network type' menu. On the Moto E, only the LTE / CDMA network selection appears, and the commands are supposed to restore the two GSM options.
      BTW, the Moto E gives the same error message as the Moto X when trying to edit the APN: 'APN Settings are not available for this user'
      If I can get the commands to work, I am hoping this issue will go away. Otherwise the Moto E will only work for talk and text, just like the Moto X.

  16. Dennis: Is walmart Go PRIME phone really grand prime?. Because specs show differently.

    GO Prime: Product in Inches (L x W x H): 4.72 x 2.51 x 0.39 in

    1. The model number is SM G530A which is correct for the Grand Prime so either the model number is wrong or the dimensions are.
