Prepaid Phones On Sale This Week Jan 1 - Jan 7

Boost Mobile LG X Power
Happy New Year and welcome to the first Prepaid Phone News' Prepaid Phones on Sale this Week post of 2017. Here are the best current deals on prepaid and unlocked phones that I've been able to find online and in stores.

This week's Deal of the Week is the Boost Mobile LG X Power 16 GB LTE Android phone for $59.99 at ShopCellDeals. If you use Virgin Mobile, ShopCellDeals has the VM version of the X Power for the same $59.99 price.

The X Power for Boost or Virgin, which has a list price of $129, features a MediaTek MT6755 Helio P10 system on a chip. Although MediaTek has a reputation for mostly low end processors with mediocre performance, the recently released MT6755 is shaping up to be a budget powerhouse. It gets better scores than the Geekbench 3 benchmarks than the midrange Snapdragon 615. That means the X Power should run rings around most sub-$130 phones today that run the Snapdragon 210 or 410, which are substantially slower than the 615.

The fast SOC is coupled with a generous 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of internal memory. Rounding out the X Power's specs are Android 6.0 Marshmallow, a 5.3" 720 x 1280 px screen, memory card slot, 8 MP and 5 MP cameras and a huge, but non-removable, 4100 mAh battery.

Like other Sprint Prepaid Group phones, the Virgin Mobile and Boost Mobile LG X Power phones are locked to their respective providers and unlikely to work on any other carrier. But for Boost or Virgin customers or even for use unactivated as a mini-tablet, music player or kids gaming gaming device, the X Power is hard to beat.

Cricket also sells a version of the LG X Power but it's a dumbed down variant with a Snapdragon 210 and only 1.5 GB of RAM.

  1. Has anyone noticed that Puppy Wireless now offers service on all four networks? Not all of their plans are great but they start at $5 with voice and data overage rates of 1.5¢ (2¢ on AT&T) texts cost 1¢. Some of the plans include unlimited data. SIMs cost $9.99 with free shipping. Sprint SIMs are currently unavailable but Sprint phones are supported. Minimum account top-ups are $2 on Verizon or $5 on the other networks.

    1. Off topic:

      Cricket Mucus

      Might be worth a post here.

    2. Lol Dennis probably hasn't bothered to list Puppy's plans because they don't make any sense.

    3. I don't know how they can possibly be more confusing than ringplus.

  2. Verizon SIM kit with $45 airtime is $49.99 not $24.99.

  3. Can I swap in a previously activated Verizon MVNO SIM into a new Verizon Prepaid phone that has never been used on the Verizon Prepaid service if the phone is supposed to be used on Verizon Prepaid before it's allowed on MVNOs?

    1. Swapping an active Verizon MVNO SIM into a new Verizon Prepaid phone used to work and probably still does with Verizon Prepaid phones that were released before Sept 1, 2016.

      Recent Verizon Prepaid phones including the Motorola Moto G Play and Samsung J3 are SIM locked and need to be unlocked before they will accept a MVNO SIM. Cheap (~$2) unlocks are available on eBay for the Moto G Play but not the J3.

      Delete
    2. So basically, Verizon Prepaid LTE phones now work a lot like GSM phones. Is that correct?

      Delete
    3. If I buy a new Verizon Prepaid Moto G Play and get it unlocked on eBay does that mean that the phone's IMEI is no longer blocked by Verizon from use on MVNOs or do I still need to find another phone's IMEI to activate the MVNO's SIM?

      Delete
    4. You will still need to find another phones IMEI to activate the MVNO's SIM. I got my Verizon Prepaid G4 Play unlocked with an unlock from ebay and redpocket wouldn't allow me to active using the phone. I had to find another phone to activate with first. After activation I swapped the sim into the G4 Play and it worked great.

  5. So the Cricket LG X Power for $10 is out of stock. Will they replenish it it before the sale ends Jan 5, 2017 ?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I doubt it. When the X Power comes back it will probably at full price. That's what Cricket did with the LG Stylo 2 and Apple iPhone 5s that were advertised as on sale for $49.99 amd $99.99 respectively.

      Delete
    2. Apparent Cricket Wireless ended the sale eary (on01-3-17 vs 1-5-17 originally advertised - that stinks. . The phone is available buy now at $79.00 for port-ins and $99.00 otherwise.

      Delete
  6. The GSM LG X Power sold by Cricket uses the slow Qualcomm 210 processor.

    You don't want that phone.

    1. Also only 1.5 gigs of ram. This phone must be a flop.

  7. @Dennis,
    HSN.com jacked up TracFone prices like Cymbal and Max Duo for example since you posted this article. :(

    1. You updated pricing, but missed that they are charging shipping on some of the listed bundles ;) .

  8. No more tracfone deals on shopcelldeals?

    1. Nope, they got busted by TracFone for doing fraudulent things and are banned from selling TracFones now.

  9. Will Page plus lock my Tracfone brand LTE phone if I activate it with them?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Help! Please!

      Delete
    2. Most, maybe all TracFones are sold SIM locked, activating a TracFone on Page Plus will not change its locked status.

      TracFones are only supposed to work on TracFone. Currently TracFones that use the Verizon network do work on Page Plus and non-TracFone Verizon MVNOs. That's a loophole and I would not count on it working forever.

      If you are asking if you can activate a TracFone on Page Plus and later deactivate it and then activate it on TracFone or a Verizon MVNO, I don't know the answer as I haven't tried it and I don't recall anyone else saying they did either.

  10. Bestbuy.com - Samsung Galaxy J3 Emerge for Sprint, Boost, Virgin Mobile. Looks like the Sprint model is vastly different than the Boost or Virgin Mobile models.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think you are comparing the Sprint J3 Emerge with the regular non-Emerge Boost and Virgin J3.

      Delete
  11. Bestbuy.com has two NEW Samsung Galaxy J3s (2017) Boost & VM which have the same exact (variant) model number as the new Sprint Prepaid Emerge but at a different price point of $129.99. I beleive Sprint has has mentioned in articles that the Sprint Prepaid would be sold as the Emerge, where as the new (2017)Boost and VM device would be sold as the J3 (2017) minus the Emerge. Search Samsung galaxy J3 on BBs site and it will bring up all the devices. NEW and old.

    1. The Samsung Galaxy J3 (SM-J320P)is last year's model. It was released in January 2016 and has a Snapdragon 410 and Android 5.1.

      The 2017 Samsung Galaxy J3 (with or without the Emerge) is SM-J327P. It's brand new and was released yesterday January 6, 2017 and has a Snapdragon 430 and Android 6.0.

      The only difference in specs I see on BestBuy for SM-J327P is that it says the Sprint version has a Snapdragon 430 and the Boost and Virgin model has a MSM8917 which is the Snapdragon 425.

      Best Buy is notorious for publishing incorrect specs so the SOC difference may or may not be real.

      Delete
    2. Your right about Best Buy and their publishing incorrect specs. Sprint.com has the Sprint SM-J327P (Emerge) showing the same specs as the Boost and VM "Emerges'".
