For anyone thats brave enough to activate this phone in the U.S. (I was) some useful info...
I purchased the NET 10 Starter Kit. I experimented before activation. First I put the T-Mobile SIM in and it immediately registered service. I then put the AT&T SIM and it registered nothing. I began the activation process, thinking I would activate it with the AT&T SIM first and if that didn't work, I wold try activating with the T-Mobile SIM. I successfully activate it with the AT&T SIM and have been using it for about a week. I live in a somewhat remote area and I only get 3G service (its always been that way with AT&T and T-Mobile). Today I had occasion to go to Phoenix and I was anxious to see how it operated on AT&T's 4G network...NOT HAPPENING. Sitting right beside a friend using a Cricket (AT&T) 4G phone, she was getting great 4G service, I was getting 3G ONLY
In all fairness I contacted Lenovo before I bought it and they told me they did not support use of this phone in the U.S. Undeterred I wanted to try it anyway. I guess I became a Lenovo junkie sometime in the past 20 years when I discovered my IBM thinkpads were actually lenovo thinkpads. Anyway I have always had good service with lenovo products and since so many phone sold in the US Market are either affordable crap, or unaffordable Galaxies and iPhones, I decide to roll the dice on the K3. I'm OK with it only getting 3G speeds on AT&T (makes for unlimited data at that rate)
Since none of the reasons I wanted a Galaxy class phone have any thing to do with streaming or data rates, I am totally happy with the fact that I have all the benefits of a Galaxy class phone at 25% of the cost (roughly comparing a Galaxy at $600 to the K3 at about $150.
This is my first Lollipop phone and I don't know if its Lenovo or Google but the apps that keep trimming unused resources are awesome. Love the phone.

mk, 19 Nov 2015battery wake up is very bad don't purchase Lenevo k3note Come on man, its battery backup, how u could b able to comment on that.
i don't find anything wrong with this phone. i have been using this phone since one month. camera quality is good, doesn't get heated up while charging but when you are using internet(3g) battery discharges slightly faster. when you are watching videos, its battery back up is good. battery goes down by 1% when you watch videos of 5 minutes. OVERALL GOOD
everything is ok but its sar is high which is bad for calling and causes head pain
AnonD-430830, 20 Nov 2015Just Uninstall the Whatsapp and reinstalled it. Note: Before Uninstalling the app ... First B... moreThanks Vikas for your reply.....however i should tell u that this was the option suggested to me by Watsapp team as well...tried several times but no results....there is a serious problem with Syncit...everytime i enable it n try to take a backup of my contacts...many of my contacts got deleted....in my previous phone using watsapp was easy...i mean i could save any no. in my contacts & was able to send the msg to the person if he/she is on watsapp...but now if i save any new no...many a times it isn't visible in the watsapp contacts (no matter how many times i refresh) & if visible it asks me to invite the person first through an sms....which was not the case in my last phone....and i don't think anyone else facing this issue...not sure whether it is a new feature in watsapp or it's my phone's fault....also Syncit is a real pain....cann't uninstall it as welll........i'm not sure whether i've done something wrong while saving contacts...as i've saved manually all of them since my earlier phone didn't have an option of taking a backup for contacts...however i saved all nos using proper country codes....please suggest....
