Prepaid Phones on Sale This Week: June 10 - June 16

Motorola G5S Plus
Welcome to the latest edition of Prepaid Phone News' Prepaid Phones on Sale this Week feature. Here are the best current deals on prepaid and unlocked phones that I've found online and in stores.

This week's Deal of the Week is the Universal Unlocked Motorola Moto G5S Plus 64 GB Android phone on sale at B&H for $249.99. That's $100 off the $349.99 list price.

Obviously the reason for the deep discount is that the Moto G5 series G6 successors have launched. However the G6 Plus will not be sold in the US and it looks like the 64 GB version of the Moto G6 won't be either.  The $249.99 US 32 GB G6 is a significant downgrade from the G5 in the processor, RAM and internal storage departments. The G6  has a Snapdragon 450, 3 GB RAM and 32 GB storage vs the G5S Plus' Snapdragon 625, 4 GB RAM and 64 GB. Other specs are mostly the same although the G6 does have a larger 5.7 vs 5.5 inch screen and Android Oreo. The G5S Plus is still running Nougat although Motorola has said it will get Oreo some day.

Other specs of the G5S Plus include a 5.5 inch 1080p screen, dual 13 MP rear cameras, 8 MP front-facing camera, fingerprint reader, SD card slot and non-removable 3000 mAh battery. It supports the following bands: CDMA: 850, 850+,1900MHz; GSM/GPRS/EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz); UMTS/HSPA+ (850, 900, 1700, 1900, 2100 MHz) and LTE (B1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 17, 25, 26, 38, 41, 66).

The 64 GB Moto G5S Plus is also on sale for $249.99 at Motorola. B&H only collects sales tax in NY and NJ, Motorola collects it in all states that have a sales tax.

  3. Question: Boost web site is showing the new upcoming Moto G6 play for $129.99 "out of stock"

    https://www.boostmobile.com/phones/moto-g6-play.html

    although the Moto web for this same phone says "Coming Soon: Register for Updates"

    https://www.motorola.com/us/products/moto-g-play-gen-6

    Dennis and anyone: would this phone sold by Boost be the same phone Moto web site says is unlocked ready for all 4 US networks?
    Would Boost allow unlocking to be used on other networks after being purchased and used on Boost/Sprint network?

    Researching for a sister who wants to keep her 5GB $30 Boost plan....thanks...I say to her "you can go to any network if a better deal appears with a universal phone ...

    1. Boost phones are locked to Boost until they have been used on Boost for 12 months of paid service.

      At this point nobody knows much of anything about either version of the G6 Play except what's on the Boost and Motorola websites.

      The Boost G6 Play will be different than the factory unlocked model sold by Motorola. In addition to being locked to Boost it will have Boost bloatware installed. There may be other differences like disabled bands or a bootloader that can't be unlocked, not that we know if the Motorola version will have an unlockable bootloader.

    2. Boost G6 Play is already for sale at Walmart, $80. Has no fingerprint sensor, less RAM and storage than moto unlocked version is supposed to have. Bought one and activated on Sprint BYOD free year. Shouldn't work but did for me (& others), YMMV.

    5. There are services that can unlock phones for a fee. I doubt that you will find anyone willing to unlock a modern Boost phone for free.

      If you do decide to pay an unlocking service, the safest place to buy them is eBay where you have some buyer protection. There are scam websites that promise cheap unlocks and then keep asking for more money without ever delivering an unlock or a refund.

  6. I'd still opt for a G6 price matched to Amazon, plus an additional $50 off with Cricket airtime.

    $185 plus tax for the most up to date universal phone is a pretty ok price, even if it's just to hold you over until the presumably much better g7 comes out next year.

    Yes, we're all waiting for the g7 because the g6 is a complete disappointment, but at least the g6 has the hip 18:9 form factor and complete carrier freedom.

  7. I just picked up a US Cellular Moto E4(XT1768)for $69.00 (plus tax free shipping) from Walmart (https://www.walmart.com/ip/U-S-Cellular-Motorola-Moto-E4-16GB-Prepaid-Smartphone-Black/601306780). It is according to XDA (https://forum.xda-developers.com/moto-e4/help/cellular-xt1768-moto-e4-bootloader-t3681118) unlocked out of the box, although there may be some issues with Sprint (of course). It is also, unlike the VZW variant of this phone, able to have the bootloader unlocked. I can confirm it worked out of the box with an already-activated Red Pocket VZW SIM. I am not in a USC service area so getting it through Uncle Wally's worked well for me.

  8. One of the world's smallest cellphones? My BLU X Link cellular watch uses any tmo network phone microSIM to make and receive calls and texts on its own, or it can connect using BT to my droid or iPhone to act as a remote for cellphone calls and texts. Contacts and calendar sync from the phones, or can be manually entered. It also has fitness tracking built in, takes and tracks my pulse and connects via BT to the BLU Fitness app for more detailed reporting. It even has a camera app. Not beautiful like the Apple Watch LTE, but it only costs $50 on Amazon, vs $399. I'm using it for some smartphone detox.

    1. And with the repeal of net neutrality, AT&T can now block or double charge for content from rival entertainment giants such as Fox or Disney. In fact this sort of innovation is what the repeal of net neutrality was designed for, and what it encourages.

      Repealing net neutrality take the shackles off of innovation. Unfortunately, it's a type of innovation that would make Bernie Madoff smile.

    2. AT&T could block or charge extra for rival content, but that would violate their new disclosure statement and they could be punished under the new regulations. Of course they would not do this anyway; it would anger their customers and provide lawmakers with an excuse for more regulation.

    3. "No one has provided any rational arguments or evidence that ISPs will be likely to do those things again"

      There's plenty of evidence and proof, in fact this is one of the main reasons that they wanted to have net neutrality repealed.

      If you want to look for actual lack of evidence and lack of rational arguments, look for the stunning silence when you ask for any sort of list of actual innovations that net neutrality actually prevented.

    4. "There's plenty of evidence and proof,"
      Name one thing that ISPs have said they will do that was actually banned under Net Neutrality.
      If an ISP plans to do something like that, the new regulations require that it has to be disclosed in writing so that customers can compare ISP practices before they subscribe. So you should be able to find at least one thing very easily if you actually look.

      Delete
    5. "If an ISP plans to do something like that, the new regulations require that it has to be disclosed in writing so that customers can compare ISP practices before they subscribe. "

      Implying collusion and de facto monopolies don't exist.

      This only works if you're privileged enough to live in an expensive, thriving world class downtown where every ISP wants to compete.

      Geographically speaking, most of America's land mass can't partake in healthy ISP competition.

      So long as ISP feudalism is alive and well, local net lords can mistreat their serfs however they wish so long as there's no other competition in town, either because of high entry costs and equally low interest from those who can afford it (i.e. Google Fiber) or just exclusionary local regulations put in place by politicos who signed their community's rights and freedoms away to the highest bidder.

      It wouldn't be an issue if corporations were bound by the standard of "don't be evil." But they're not, and neither is the government when it's the one policing content.

      With dirtbags on all sides, it's time to just resign ourselves to our eventual e-slavery.

      I agree. A small percentage of American (millions of people tho) don't have broadband competition. Killing NN lowers regulatory compliance cost and will encourage rural broadband investment and innovation. And if a mono ISP has bad network management policies, that will encourage new competition too. Rural consumers will have more choices under light touch regs.

  10. You act like you are born yesterday. There is already precedent for isps blocking content due to business reasons. Not illegalities.

    The main reason for getting rid of net neutrality was so the isps can block content from those who don't pay it extra

    1. I think you didn't actually read the comment:
      "No one has provided any rational arguments or evidence that ISPs will be likely to do those things again."
      Actions preceding Net Neutrality are not rational practices for ISPs now, and you can't cite any evidence to the contrary, apparently.

      The main reason for getting rid of NN was not what you said. It was to replace heavy-handed gov controls with 'light-touch' regulations that will reduce carrier compliance costs (a barrier to MVNO market entry) and stimulate investment in innovative solutions. All ISPs must disclose their practices in writing (e.g., any blocking or slowing) so that consumers can make informed decisions. FTC/FCC can punish ISPs that deviate from their disclosed practices.

      Delete
    2. And I did "read the comment", by the way, and I understood it far more than you did. As it stands you have failed to make any case for repealing NN. But yes, sure, NN had "heavy handed gov controls" which prevented the real threat of IPS's taking advantage of monopoly status by blocking competitors' content and charging you extra for what you have already paid for. Controls which, in my view and that of most people, we need.

      This is why NN is extremely popular among Americans, and the repeal of it so extremely unpopular. The support for NN and opposition to repealing it is extremely lopsided. You will hardly find any other issues that Americans are so united on unless maybe you had people vote on "chocolate chip cookies":

      "Poll: 83 percent of voters support keeping FCC's net neutrality rules"

      More than 80 percent of voters oppose the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) plan to repeal its net neutrality rules, according to a new poll from the University of Maryland’s Program for Public Consultation.

      The survey presented respondents with detailed arguments from both supporters and opponents of the repeal plan, before asking them where they stood on the rules. It found that 83 percent overall favored keeping the FCC rules, including 75 percent of Republicans, 89 percent of Democrats and 86 percent of independents.


      It's pretty obvious. After all, few Americans want their ISP blocking Netflix over petty juvenile games, or charging them extra to visit websites that the CEO of their local monopoly ISP has a personal beef over.

    3. ".... in writing so that customers can compare ISP practices before they subscribe."

      In almost all of the US, the ISPs are local monopolies. You cannot compare and choose unless you move house.

      Did you actually think about that sentence before you wrote it? Statements such as yours are only supporting the case for net neutrality.

    6. Yes, this has been well documented. But I have seen NO evidence that ISPs are planning to repeat; they're not masochists, after having been clobbered with NN, rather than the FCC just resolving issues with a few bad actors. ISPs certainly don't want NN back, so they don't seem likely to upset content customers, citizen subscribers, activists, regulators, legislators, judges or juries as the court challengers go forward. A lot of the "fear" has been hyped in the campaign over NN, without rational argument or evidence of what will happen. I'm still waiting to see some. At this point no one knows, so we should all wait to see rather than spreading any more 'fear' based on guesswork.

    7. ISPs are violating the principals of net neutrality right now, including:

      -Cable and DSL ISPs throttling Netflix (run Netflix's fast.com speed test to see if yours is).
      -AT&T zero rating DirectTV Now which they own but not other streaming video services.
      -Verizon zero rating its in-house Go90.
      -Mobile operators blocking hotspot.

      Delete
    8. "-AT&T zero rating DirectTV Now which they own but not other streaming video services.
      -Verizon zero rating its in-house Go90.
      -Mobile operators blocking hotspot."

      Well, Wheeler at FCC allowed all of this under NN, so the repeal had no effect.
      Zero rating benefitted customers and was very popular, he said.
      Blocking hotspot was not explicitly prohibited under NN; it has to be imputed from the general rules, and I don't believe it was even evaluated by FCC under a complaint. Who knows what they would have decided?

      Your examples highlight one of the biggest problems under NN:
      FCC only defined violations after they reviewed complaints (like the def of porn) and gaged which way the wind was blowing. The principles were too vague to be understood (without asking for subjective interpretation in advance), and even then the FCC reserved the right to change their minds after $M had been spent for implementation. EG, the NN exception for "reasonable net management practices." was whatever FCC judged to be reasonable after a complaint, not what the ISP or industry believed was reasonable.

    14. "This just sounds like zero-rating envy 'cause your preferred content is not a freebie so it costs extra"

      Nice way to spin the zero-rating scam (which was illegal under NN) which was very anti-consumer in that the ISP charged less for content they liked, and more for content they didn't like.

      Delete
    15. To me, the biggest problem with zero-rating is that it gives the zero-rated content providers a competitive advantage over all the non-zero-rated providers. In the long run that will tend to reduce the quantity and diversity of available content.

      Delete
    16. Bundled, zero-rated data content is the future of wireless service, and this will grow rapidly over the next years as companies seek new revenue streams to continue revenue growth in a saturated market.
      The quality and diversity of content has grown tremendously and has never been higher. This will continue, with new players like Netflix, Hulu and Apple spending $B on their original content. Demand for video entertainment continues to grow rapidly, and will accelerate in the new 5G wireless world. Successful creators will always find innovative ways to partner and prosper, regardless of data zero-rating.

      Many companies offer 'free' extras with their products and services (not separately priced). This is how capitalism works; the market decides, within the guideposts of the law. Americans love this kind of marketing/sales practice, and it often influences our choices. Most of us don't complain: "This is a scam. I want free product B, not the product A you offer."

      FCC reviewed several complaints about content zero rating, and took a deep dive on Binge On, Music Freedom and Go90. They found that these 'free' data offerings were very popular and benefitted customers. They did not ban or restrict them under NN principles or rules. So it's just a subjective opinion to call them 'illegal.'
      No laws are broken, and it makes people happy. Binge on.

      Delete
    17. Exactly, Dennis. One of a few reasons why net neutrality is a great idea. And I have yet to hear anyone come up with anything even close to a valid reason to have it repealed.

      Once we pay for our data from an ISP, what we do with it should be absolutely no business of theirs as long as it is legal. That was the law under net neutrality, and I think we should go back to it.

      Delete
    18. The three media censorship scams named above (Binge On, Music Freedom and Go90) in which carriers/ISPs fined customers for watching content from companies they did not like were actually very much illegal under the net neutrality law. The FCC, however chose to look the other way.

      ...you are right, though. With net neutrality out of the way, such so-called bundling is the wave of the future. Look for such wonderful things as your local Comcast Monopoly outright banning Netflix again, or your Cox cable company placing extra tariffs on your cable bill for watching movies from the Disney Company. Repealing net neutrality will bring about a complete war on consumers and their choices. But that's exactly why this was done, isn't it?

      Won't it be nice when the local Charter Cable Monopoly bans Fox News from people's internet because the CEO is a major Democratic party donor. Or bans MSNBC because the CEO is in lockstep with the Republicans.

      Again, we need net neutrality back. What we do with the data we have already paid for is none of the carrier's or ISP's business as long as they use is legal.

      And yes, with net neutrality out of the way, the AT&T local-monopoly ISP could very easily choose to block people from viewing "prepaid phone news", because of the reason that people criticize AT&T prepaid and Cricket in these forums too much. And this sort of thing would be allowed, in fact this is the sort of ridiculous activity that the repeal of net neutrality is supposed to encourage.

      Innovation? Haha.

  11. Take a long, hard look at the phone sales above and think about your needs for the next year or two. The Commerce Dept has two lists of Chinese products worth $50 Billion each. The first list will impose a 25% tariff starting July 6. When China retaliates, the second list of products will get a 25% tariff. There is no way the Commerce Dept can reach their $100B target without hitting Chinese smartphones. They are the #1 import category, worth >$70 Billion/year.
    It's unclear yet how Commerce will apply tariffs to smartphones designed in the USA, with about half the components' value coming from outside China (iPhone). The cost of Chinese iPhone assembly is only $6-10 according to experts who have studies this. Tim Cook lobbied the President to exempt Apple, or at least base the tariff on Chinese value added, not the full purchase price. This is hard to compute, so it's unclear whether Commerce will use this approach with Chinese-assembled smartphones.

    2. The Chinese tariffs will exempt the iPhone based on Cook meeting with Trump. China will soon disrupt Apple operations in China as retaliation for the tariffs. I hope they act badly and Apple begins moving more production to India and Brazil, and Foxconn opens a new iPhone factory in Taiwan or Thailand. They could source more components from other countries too, but this will take a while and cost more.
