What's an "unlocked phone?"

Purchasing an unlocked handset gives you more handset options to choose from and more flexibility as to where you use it. Because an unlocked handset isn't tied to a particular service provider, it can be used with any service provider in the world that operates on a SIM card-based GSM network. Simply place an activated SIM card in the handset and you'll enjoy the same or similar service. Some premium features may not be available. SIM card sold separately. Speak with your current service provider for more details.

Truely awful

I needed this as an emercency phone only, 4 months later, does not swipe to unlock, once unlocked keyboard does not work. Do not buy.

Amazing phone for the price!

Just got the phone, and so far, I love it. Camera works ok. just gotta be a well lit area. Picture is clear. Volume good. I added 8 gb's of memory, and wish I'd of gotten 32. Wish the sim card, came with it though. Earphones, and a plastic case, that just covers the screen,. comes with it. Love that, although I did buy a better case, as well.All and all, so far, so good.

The phone and brand never disappoint me and I fall in love the moment I got it. I own two phones and I'm very happy I made my choice of picking them product. For the price, no one can beat it. The battery is the key to their victory. The build is tough and good looking the screen display is wonderful and HD. Buy it and you will not get disappointed.

don't buy

Four months in it doesn't work. It more of a throw away phone I guess. Takes terrible pics for a polaroid phone. Slow and I was upgraded to the A500. Hate to see the A400

Incorrect Memory Specifications?

In general, I like the phone, however... I don't know if it's a mis-print or if I received an older phone, or what. My phone only has 4GB of Memory, and NOT the 8GB that is as advertised. I have only been able to upload 18 Apps... No more. This may seem like a lot to some people, but to others... It's very little. Check the actual amount of Memory BEFORE you buy. I only gave it ONE Star because of this (important) Limitation.
