It is fantastic phone. I want to buy Aquos Crystal 306SH.

It does have a SIM card which means outside USA it can work on a GSM network right?
iqadi, 23 Nov 2014To users just a question.. It says no Edge and no Gprs on specs..so that means users cant u... moreGPRS and EDGE are type of connectivity both are slower compared to 3G GPRS being the slowest. Location Services pertain to GPS. The reason why this phone has no GPRS/EDGE is because it is a CDMA device as opposed to GSM.
i really like this devices but its CDMA not a GSM Devices
design 10/10 i want to buy this , When GSM ver. release
AnonD-319070, 13 Oct 2014Sharp has another aquos crystal model: sharp 305sh with GSM support.yeah and literally costs 4 times as much.look it up.not to mention you WILL NOT find it unlocked.it will be locked to a Japanese carrier.
I really like the phone, it is locked to "Sprint Prepaid" and I would really like to know how long I have to wait before Sprint Prepaid (no airtime purchased yet) allows me to use it elsewhere, like perhaps Page Plus?
This being my 9th Android phone or tablet & as an XDA Senior Member, I concur that may be the best $150 smartphone today with 2 exceptions: Boost Mobile failed to honor the "One Month of FREE service" offer I accepted on 10/14/2014 and Sharp has failed to provide ANY assistance to unlock the bootloader so that like 99.99999% of smartphones, we can have custom recovery and customer ROMS.
I concur with 2 exceptions: BoostMobile has not honored the "one month of free service offer" I accepted on 11/14/2014 and Sharp has offered ZERO help in unlocking the bootloader so custom ROMs can be created and installed.
Richard, 11 Nov 2014I own this phone, used on Boost Mobile USA. Battery life is decent, screen is really nice, cal... moreIve had this phone for almost 2months. The rear camera is pretty damn good (for 8mp) and the front is less quality like every other phone. Maybe you should try playing with the camera settings. This is by far the best $150 prepaid phone you can get. The best thing is it doesn't looj like all the other cookie cutter phones.
To users just a question..
It says no Edge and no Gprs on specs..so that means users cant use apps that need gprs like maps..etc?
Anonymous, 19 Nov 2014Does anyone know if we can move movies onto the SD card?To be honest, thats a very stupid question. Yes, you can, with a file explorer. Its the same way with all amdroid phones with file exploring capabilities.
