With a non-AT&T SIM, I found that I could make calls and access the internet, HOWEVER, I cannot use it as a mobile hotspot. That functionality is only reserved for AT&T SIM cards (there's a check in the phone code) and is NOT unlocked. This is with a Samsung S4 mini (SGH-I257).
Also can you only call with anonymous id, or has this been sorted out now?
What is the general consensus should I buy an unlocked phone & sim only contract or buy a
contract phone locked to carphone warehouse?
Just few days ago i got "new" update B12 but it was still 6.0.1 with January '17 security level... REALLY, ZTE? Getting January security update in September? xD With this speed, Nougat update is coming next summer! Well, at least i'm still getting updates.

Poor phone. Very slippery design, very slow ram and poor battery life. Avoid it.
Has anyone got 7.1.1 OTA in Europe region phones? And i mean OTA, not manual update method. Like i said previously here, manual update failed and i just want that goddamn OTA already!
I bought this phone for visitors/relatives during summer vacation time.
It was US version, which has only English, French, Spanish and Chinese language built-in, but after installing European ROM, it support almost all language is showed up on menu. (and European version is simulating iPhone, ugly icons, all apps shows in front.. etc)
Since they are visitor/tourist using Google maps are lot, amazingly GPS and compass is pointing very accurate and quick, and guide voice (from speaker) is very nice human voice, not like other phones which has robotic voice.
Despite heavy use (Yes, they are smartphone addict), battery last whole day easily.
The setting menu arrangement is quite a bit different from Xperia, but I like some of the functions, such as double tap to wake up from blank screen, bring phone to ear will answer the call without tapping screen, facing down to ring tone off, finger print reader on back acts as shutter button, etc...
Finally, I managed to install 7.1.1, but I don't see much difference, (yes, starting animation is very impressive, but that doesn't do much for real use) except phone no longer shows network provider name on top left.

It will only work via the bootloader menu after you have turned on developer option and unlock OEM bootloader.

It was weird. Maybe that file didn't have right authorization or something. I have Scandinavian version as i live in Finland. I guess UK/Spain/Germany/Italy etc. file don't work.
