Prepaid Phones On Sale This Week Sep 11 - Sep 17

AT&T ZTE ZMax 2
Welcome to Prepaid Phone News' regular Sunday Prepaid Phones on Sale this Week post listing the best current US prepaid and unlocked phone deals.

It's back. This week's Deal of the Week is  onece again the AT&T GoPhone ZTE ZMax 2 LTE Android phone. This time around, its on sale for $49.99 at Best Buy, online or in-store.

One of the best inexpensive Android phones currently available, the ZMax 2 normally sells for between $80 and $100, so 50 bucks is an outstanding bargain.

The Zmax 2 features 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal storage, both double what's usually found in sub-$100 phones. There's a  5.5 inch 720 x 1280 px screen, 1.2 Ghz Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor, Dolby audio, an 8 MP main camera with auto-focus and flash, 2 MP front-facing camera, memory card slot and a 3000 mAh removable battery.

The Zmax 2 can be used straight out of the box on AT&T postpaid and prepaid, Cricket and AT&T MVNOs like Airvoice, H2O, TracFone and Pure TalkUSA. If unlocked, it is also compatible with FreedomPop GSM, Truphone, T-Mobile and T-Mobile MVNOs. AT&T will unlock these phones for non-customers for free. See this Slickdeals Wiki for unlocking instructions. The ZMax 2 supports LTE bands 2, 4, 5 and 12. It also supports quad band GSM and 2100 Mhz HSPA+ for international use.

    1. It's a good deal but it probably won't work on RingPlus because it's probably not in Sprint's whitelist.

  7. Beware of Verizon Prepaid Phone In a Box. They changed their 4G unlock policy again. It was updated in Jan. 2016 and now again Aug. 2016. Using the term "subsidy" now. The $30 ransom does not work any longer. http://www.verizon.com/about/consumer-safety/device-unlocking-policy

    1. "our 4G Phone-in-a-Box phones may only be used with Verizon Prepaid service for 1 year from original activation date or until payments in the amount specified on the back of the Phone-in-a-Box package are added to the Prepaid account."

      Sounds like a really bad idea to buy Verizon Prepaid phone and use it on PagePlus. It is time to move on to ATT and T-Mobile. At least you could easily purchase unlock code for some models from Ebay.

      Delete
    2. That sure sounds like it means the end to being able to use a Verizon Prepaid phone on Verizon MVNOs after buying one month of Verizon PP service.

      But I wonder if they have started enforcing this new policy yet? I haven't heard of anyone not being able to use a Verizon PP phone on an MVNO after activating on Verizon and paying for a month.

      Unlock codes are only useful for unlocking the GSM side of Verizon phones with GSM support. Most of Verizon's PP phones don't support GSM.

    3. I'm tired of trying to follow all the hoops for CDMA constantly changing rules and controls. I'm now living in an area with good GSM coverage, and its getting better in general out here in the west, so I'm going to go all GSM from now on. Another benefit, I can use my set overseas easily. If I find a situation were I really need the CDMA coverage in a particular area, I'll just buy a short term burner tracfone.

      Delete
    4. So does this mean that the $30 one month activation does not work anymore for getting a Verizon Prepaid phone to work on a a Verzion network MVNO ( Page Plus,Boom Mobile etc ? Please clarify / - Thanks

      Delete
    5. I switched to GSM (ATT)for the same reasons mentioned above. In my case, the coverage with ATT is not quite as good as Verizon but adequate.

  8. buyer beware! both the zte max 2 and the new zte maven 2, sold by at&t, will NOT let you disable any google apps, even ones that you never want or use. that means they eat up ram, rom, and data. even telling google play store not to auto update apps will not stop them from updating without your permission or consent, eating up your data. these seem to be the only zte and/or lollipop phones that i have seen that are like this. who meesed them up - zte or at&t? i am betting it is at&t.

    1. That's why you buy, unlock and root an $80 Cricket Idol 3 instead.

      Alcatel may be considered a trashy brand, but I've had mine edging between "ouch my hand" and "I probably shouldn't leave this on a wooden surface" for months without any real problems.

      Even a few drops haven't slowed the juggernaut down.

      The one problem I do have is browsing resource intensive websites (like Google Play and Youtube) in Chrome.

      But it's not so much that they're broken or slow after loading.

      Rather, the Idol 3 just can't keep up with juggling countless resource-heavy tabs at breakneck speeds.

      Still, that's pretty much true of any device below the $250 mark.

      Delete
    2. very interesting on these two zte sets, huh. I picked up a Maven about a year ago for $20 and its earned its keep mostly as an unlocked set to use with local sims while abroad. Another issue with these is tethering- even if you get your set unlocked, it still wont allow tethering on another carrier, so another thing to beware of. And of course, there's no root method, so tethering cannot be fixed, although you can find paid apps for workarounds for this function.

  9. I know you can't use sprint prepaid phones for freedompop anymore but what happens if you put an already activated sim in a new sprint prepaid phone?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. if you do that, it will explode. kidding. but it still wont work. CDMA phones are controlled by the carriers- sprint and verzion. you have little to no control over their blacklists and whitelists and they change the rules all the time, so even if a set once worked, they can change the rules after and it can become blacklisted retroactively. I've got a drawer full of orphans that can only be used on one particular service or another and so they sit collecting dust and wasting resources until such time as I may need on for a very particular job for a short term solution. but mostly, they will sit and collect dust.

  10. I can't tolerate all the spying in Android! Has anyone found a working non-Root APPS OPS style app permission controller for this ZTE, or any Lollipop for that matter? App Ops is just a start really. I don't think you can stop all the system level spying, mainly on Google's part. Android is Google's ultimate spy tool afterall, but it seems like there's enough hackers out there that can't tolerate all the spying that there must be some solutions? One very simple example: import your contacts to a new phone- just about every app steals your contacts freely - and now every one of them knows exactly who is using that phone. Any anonymity you might have thought you had vanishes just by having using a contact list!

    1. App Ops - Permission - no root by Toan PV works Android Apps on Google Play on most LG phones running Lollipop.

      It's also possible to use Android phones without a Google account if you are willing to give up most Google apps and services.

      Delete
    2. Thanks, Dennis. I did see that App Ops app, and I tested it out and it does seem to work on a LG running Lollipop, BUT, kinda limited because it ONLY works on apps you install and NOT on apps that are already installed that come prepackaged with the phone. Still, better than nothing, I think. I used another app called "permission explorer" by Criniti Carlo which I like the idea of- it shows all the app permissions. However, using this app, along with the app ops, I can't confirm that the app ops is working because the permission explorer just list all the apps permissions and toggling them off in app ops doesn't seem to have any effect for this viewer, so I'm still not sure if I can verify the app ops app is working. Do you know of a way to verify that it works? or does it just have a nice menu of toggles to look at?

      Delete
    3. I tested the App Ops app by using it to block the Barcode Scanner app from accessing the camera. When I launched Barcode Scanner it reported a problem with the camera and exited.

    4. as as using an android device without a google account, that doesn't really get any increased anonymity. There are PLENTY of other very simple methods to identify the user, such as matching up a contacts list. Here are some of the common permissions which create a dot-to-dot picture for companies like google and facebook: Read contacts, read clipboard, read call log, read sms, gps location, network based location, record audio (google is getting very good at speech recognition, I'm quite sure once they have a large enough database of samples of your voice, that it is very easy to write code to recognize YOU, the individual), read and write to sd card (how secure is your personal identifiable information filed away in you SD card, really?), record video, take a picture, etc. There's an app out there I was recently looking at that will use the selfie camera to take a picture and send it to your email if the user draws the wrong unlock pattern. its easy.

      I'm not a conspiricy guy, or extremest at all. Just an average person with really nothing to hide. But that doesn't mean I'm comfortable with all this high potential to spy, gather, collect, and store loads and loads of personal data in bottomless databases which I have little to no control over. I would probably go back to a dumb phone, honestly, if I wasn't so hooked in on all the amazing things we can do with these little supercomputers. just sayin...

    5. I personally do not associate a Google account with my Android phones and I don't feel I'm missing anything. I access websites through an actual browser. I have a couple of things through the old Amazon App Store (where I realized I had no interest in most apps) and f-Droid. For the stuff where I'm concerned about user-side security I use a desktop computer running Linux and a wired internet connection. Or I don't do that activity online at all.

      As far as Google goes, I figure they offer so many services to users and businesses they've got your info, period.

      Also, there are phone alternatives:
      1. Non-smartphone (as already mentioned)
      2. iPhone
      3. Windows Phone
      4. Any other minor OS

  11. Dennis, I know this is maybe alittle off topic, but can you shed some light here: I'm trying to get to adb shell once again, and my windows 8 machine wont talk to the android. I've tried this over and over with all different handsets and feel like a retard because I waste hours and hours trying different things, never getting it to work. Suggestions on how to get the right driver installed to my computer and phone can talk freely?

    https://4gantennashop.com/

    They're a T-Mobile business reseller that currently offers the T-Mobile One unlimited data plan for $38.70 taxes included (unlimited talk and text cost $5/mo extra) they also offer a 5GB plan for $17.71 taxes included. They seem to be able to activate any T-Mobile SIM or will provide a new SIM free of charge with plan purchase. No contract or credit check is required and there are no additional fees. They also seem to have been around for a while.

  14. Does anyone know if the different iPhone models select different bands for the same carrier?
    Allow me to explain. I used to have an iPhone 6 plus that was Verizon (A1522) and in my house it used to mostly use band 13 and very rarely band 4 which didn't get much reception here. I upgraded to an iPhone 6s plus (A1634) factory unlocked but this one uses Verizon band 2 and very rarely 13 and 4. The issue I have is band 13 used to give me 4 bars of reception while 2 gives me mostly 2 and 3 bars. Anyone know why if they support all Verizon bands why the phones selectively choose certain ones?

    If you are an iPhone hater please don't chime in. I'm just curious about this fact and don't need to hear how much you hate iPhones or the reason you hate them. Thank you.

  16. Who is the best priced T-Mobile or Sprint MVNO that offers roaming?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The best roaming deals tend to be on carrier brands rather than MVNOs:
      On T-Mobile: T-Mobile Prepaid , MetroPCS, Ting, and feature phones on TracFone, Straight Talk and NET10 have Voice and SMS only roaming. Higher priced T-Mobile Prepaid plans include a small amount of data roaming.
      On Sprint: Boost has 50 minutes of voice and unlimited test roaming for free, Republic has free voice and text and extra cost data roaming, Ting has free voice and SMS roaming, RingPlus has extra cost voice, text and data roaming.

      As to which is cheapest, you need to crunch the numbers based on your overall usage and how much and what type of roaming you need.
      T-Mobile and T-Mobile MVNO Prepaid Plans Compared | Prepaid Phone News and Sprint and Sprint MVNO Prepaid Plans Compared | Prepaid Phone News should give you the information you need to do the calculations.

  17. I just received a job offer as a truck driver for a grocery chain and will be traveling throughout the whole state of CA. I currently have Ultra mobile but the coverage is not that good everywhere. In your experience, who has the best native coverage in CA? At&t or Verizon? I don't want to pay for roaming charges and I need a prepaid plan. Please help. Thank you.

    Replies
    1. In my limited experience, mostly in Northern California, Verizon and AT&T native coverage is about the same. However, Verizon plus roaming is better than AT&T was roaming. A Verizon MVNO with free roaming like Boom Mobile would probably be you best bet
