isaack22, 24 Aug 2016Do you need a prime account to use the phone? or it can be used with a regular amazon account?I have Amazon prime and had a friend give me the $60 cash to pay for the 16GB storage 2GB RAM Prime version with lock screen ads for him to use. When you are setting the phone up it will ask you to sign in to a Amazon account, but you can skip that step entirely if you want and never sign in to any Amazon account. It worked just fine when he signed into his though and he dose not have Prime.

The message icon is not seen on the screen so... moreDas, click the "all programs" icon at the bottom-center of the home page screen, then look for "Messenger", and either give that icon a long press to drag it back to your homepage, and/or just click the messenger icon; next click the plus + sign to start a text, and type a number, or click the initial for an icon from your address book. [if you want to text more than one person at the same time, then click the checkmark at bottom to add a 2nd,3rd, 4th name or number.] Then type your text in the white box that says "send Message", and then click the arrow (= a sideways Teepee shape) to send your text message.

Anonymous, 20 Jul 2016Anyone here that has cricket as there carrier? If so you don't mind if you tell me how it is t... moreHello, I have cricket. Sorry lost my glasses typos. I was amazed. I walked into cricket and walked out in less than 10min with my new Blu phone. They seen impressed but ine guy made a mocking sound when heard about be adds. They just took the sim card out and swapped it. And entered their info. I understand that I could have done this at home by logging into my account and getting the info. The service seems just as clear as it was on the iPhone. Plus the stress of not breaking a $500 phone -- so far I am learning how to use the apps. The Amazon photo and Amazon drive and Amazon. Cloud. I am all confused. I couldn't find any of the photos to text and then I did add a photo by accident That I did Not want to share but I couldn't find the option to cancel or abort. So I am trying to learn it. But pretty much it's like ge iPhone. I do keep my phone locked because the Amazon is always open and ready to shop. So is Google. So I do keep it locked. One day I got a nice blue empty page with my name date time ..I love it. But it's gone and not sure how to get it. I open the phone and I usually have a products for sale. I swipe the screen and then enter my pin.
I hope my ramblings helped someone. Maria
I purchased Blu R1 HD 16 GB from Amazon.com with my brother in law's Amazon Prime membership account which costed me R's.4000/ (59US$). The phone is amazing in all respect. It has very few minor shortcomings which also found in expensive phones. Overall I rate it with 5 Stars. R.Ramamurthy. Mysore.
Amazing... truly amazing...
Any electronic devices now a days works for max 2 years. And for that you spend some $1000...! Waste waste of money don't go like a sheep in a herd .. think before you act... This mobile is good for daily use and what else can you expect from a $60 mobile. I have used iPhone6s Google Nexus5 and Samsung s6 as well they also do the same nothing big... Yeah I agree it may stuck once in a while.. so what let it go
I love it I use it for 1 year and then give it to my kids to play games and again buy a new one ...
