nickname, 04 Nov 2016buy a BLU R1 HD for $100 or $50 with Amazon Prime. Bigger screen, better camera and processor,... moreI disagree. BLU is notorious for bad batteries and bad battery replacements from China.
This phone is for people who actually use a phone for "talking" to someone!! I've owned numerous smart phones, all different brands over 6yrs. I'm actually able to "hear" a caller without having to put a call on speaker or have to wear an earpiece. I can actually see numbers on the physical keypad when I dial a number or have to put in numeric info during a phone call. It's great not having to worry about scratching the screen or making unwanted calls due the clamshell design.. I like that you do have smartphone capabilities for email, apps, my google calender & contacts, social media..). It's ashame it didn't come with Android Marshmallow & more memory on the phone but I have added 16 apps (including netflix which plays with no problems at all), 4 music albums & about 12 pictures & still have over 1gb still available without using a memory card!! If I need more, I pull out my tablet. DON'T KNOCK WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW OR HAVE TRIED!! This is not a phone for someone who "lives" on their phone all day long for everything but calls!! This retro type phone may be more popular than you think.. other companies have made similar phones just not available here in the states yet.. for those who think it's just for kids or seniors or non techie types, think about how many people that really is!!
TF is the most flexible network on earth, support both ATT and Verizon, but of course, you must bring your phone. the SIM runs you $1 from bestbuy, comes with 4 SIMs, two ATT, nano and micro, and two Vzn, their plan is alright in Los Angeles, speed is the best outside of the building in the City.
This phone is pretty much what you need as a phone, not for watching movies, or do long emails. I would pay $50 for the phone alone. if you are already a customer, they will add those minutes to your plan, so win win either way
buy a BLU R1 HD for $100 or $50 with Amazon Prime. Bigger screen, better camera and processor, and a modern phone for people on a budget

Anon, 04 Nov 2016It works on Verizon postpaid if you have an already-activated SIM card.I believe you need to contact the TF if you wanted to bring it to VRZW. they have this unlocking policy I believe so....... yeah.

Ok, it's only for europe, 3g/4g frequencies for europe are totally absent.
so, no chance for whatsapp calls.
i need a flip phone for only whatsapp calls, via 4g, but in europe...
will ZTE offer the european version?
the phone looks great, and priced right!
Anonymous, 03 Nov 2016We need batter flip phones. Plz do something about it. This is rubbish. have a look at Samsung W2016/G9198
After the miserable failure of the z max 2 this phone makes perfect sense.

Looks like ZTE produced these phones, packed them, stored in Warehouse, and forgot about it for 10 years. After 10 years when Warehouse was opened, they found this phones.
Oh man, that looks nice.
Wonder if I can find it through any import stores..
