Updated 3/15: Prepaid Phones On Sale This Week Mar 12 - Mar 18

AT&T GoPhone Alcatel Ascend XT
Welcome to the latest edition of Prepaid Phone News' Prepaid Phones on Sale this Week post. Here are the best current deals on prepaid and unlocked phones found today online and in stores.

This week's Deal of the Week is the AT&T GoPhone Huawei Ascend XT H1611 which is back in stock for $79.00 at Wallmart.com after a month's absence.

The Ascend XT, which seems to be a Walmart exclusive, has specs typical of a $150 phone including a Snapdragon 616 SOC, 2 GB of RAM and 16 GB of memory.  It runs Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow and has a 6 inch 720x1280px IPS screen, SD card slot and a non-removable 3000 mAh battery. The rear camera is 8 MP with LED flash and autofocus and there's a 2 MP front facing camera.

The Ascend XT is SIM-locked to AT&T and will work on GoPhone, AT&T post paid, Cricket and AT&T MVNOs without unlocking. Some users have been able to get it SIM unlocked by AT&T although YMMV. Bandwise, it supports quadband GSM; UMTS (3G, faux G) 850, 1900, and 2100 MHz and LTE bands 2, 4, 5, 12 and 30. That means it supports all of T-Mobile's bands although probably not T-Mobile VoLTE or WiFi calling. It's not a great choice for international use has it has no international LTE bands and only one international UMTS band. It you're into hacking Android, the Ascend is rootable and its bootloader can be unlocked although there don't seem to be any custom ROMs available for it yet.

  1. Ting's Moto G4 Play is $30 less than the Amazon "especially good prepaid deals this week" and comes with your choice of Ting SIM card. A bargain at $99, on sale for $50 off.

    ReplyDelete
  2. Moto G4 Play XT 1607 (universal,unlocked model) for $ 119.99 at Frys Electronics with email promo code . It is easy to sign up for their promo codes at www.frys.com . This deal expires 03-18-2017.

    This not the lowest price this phone has sold for but if you need one now, the Frys offer is probably the best deal.

    1. Da Huawei Ascend isa low-key phone da deserves a bit more attention than it’ll probab getin! It’s no head toda half-dozen carriers and won’t be support by millions in advertis. However,it’s a phone we’d strong advise seek out, strong in da Force!

      it’s available for under $200 sim-free, but da getin yousa da sort of specs and build quality you’d has to fork out at least $300 for yousa. Weesa desperata for a Samsung phone.at every turn,it pretty much matches da Samsung galaxy a5 ,but has a bigger screen.

      But da Samsung blow up like da Death Star!

      Da software isa litta bitty quirky, da camera slight slow on occasion and da screen a litta bitty low-res,but otherwise da Huawei Ascend g7 isa phone all budget buyers should consider dis year. it offers bombad value!

  11. The bundle deals for simple mobile through Amazon are exclusively priced for people who have Amazon Prime! I tried to get the Samsung Galaxy on 5 bit the price was $150+ unless I had amazon prime.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Actually the reason the On5 bundle is $150 is because Amazon sold out and it's only available from an overpriced reseller.

      I've replaced the On5 bundle in the post with a Simple Mobile LG X Power with $40 airtime for $34.99 bundle, Prime not required.

    3. I thought at&t's band 12 phones were incompatible with T-Mobiles, (at&t actually being band 17).

      Delete
    4. There's only one band 12. AT&T's former band 17 was a subset of band 12 but any band 12 phone must support the whole of band 12.

    3. Made and designed.

    4. S. Korean and Taiwan assembled phones from Samsung, LG, HTC, etc have many Chinese parts.

      iPhones are designed in CA but the parts are designed and made in China, Japan, S. Korea, Taiwan and the USA.

      If you don't want any Chinese parts, you will have a hard time. Even Mexican Nokias, and the Singapore and UK Motorola flip phones probably have some Chinese parts.

      The only recent smartphone assembled in the USA, the Moto X 2013 had a lot of Chinese parts.

    5. I agree, Chinese android maybe contains some backdoors. For example, BLU phones.↑ These guys only thinks about Chinese manufacture they even don't understand Chinese software could be stealing your information.

  13. Simple mobile phones can't even be used with a regular T-Mobile Sim, but can be used with for example a net10 Sim that is T-Mobile based?

    1. Maybe. I haven't heard of any one trying that.

    2. My T-Mobile SIM works in a Moto Razr; Krzr; and a Nokia 6750 flip phone. These are simple phones. What problems are you having?

    3. I was referring to simple mobile as in the company, tracfone. Though they are T-Mobile based I don't think a regular T-Mobile sim will work in them.

    4. Most Simple Mobile phones can be unlocked once you meet the service requirement. Other Am. Móvil SIMs are cheap, so just try them.

  15. A suggestion, Dennis. How about adding an unlocking policy section to each carrier profile?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. While he is at it, maybe he could do this also:

      1) Roll off the dead carriers into a single graveyard category listing. Wait a year before putting them there, of course. as people recently burned when shady MVNO's fly away by night are still interested in news about them for a while.

      2) Update the prepaid /native coverage map for T-Mobile... surely it can't be this bad now?

      3) Move to an ad model that is entirely GIF/JPG ads. No popups or java or anything related: that can lead to malware as several visitors to this site have pointed out.

      4) Please remind Christina to be more journalistic and critical rather than merely pasting ad copy "costs only $99!". It still keeps happening too much, and drags this site down.

      Delete
    2. 1) Defunct MVNOs are listed in the "News by Carrier" sidebar. They are flagged with a "()" indicating an empty list of MNOs.
      2) if you mean the GoSmart thumbnail map in Coverage Maps For All Prepaid Carriers I updated it yesterday.
      3) We are always looking for new and better revenue sources. Static ads like you suggest haven't been a viable online advertising revenue source for least 20 years.
      4) You just did :)

      Delete
    3. Static ads with hyperlinks might end up being more profitable, as more and more people block the malware popup, script ads.

      Delete
  16. Or one article listing the unlock policy for each MNO

    1. Upgrades are immediate on Cricket's $60 plan. Upgrade and then downgrade after the unlock and it will only cost a few dollars as plan changes are prorated.

  25. AT&T finally dumped all Lumia phones - none on their websites. T-Mobile and Sprint don't see them. Verizon still sells the Lumia 735 for $120 (!). They probably bought too many and think they can get someone to buy these outdated 2014 phones.
