Please read the product description carefully for all unlocked cell phones.

Some unlocked cell phones sold by Newegg may have previously been locked to a specific carrier. A carrier-locked cell phone may often have carrier-specific applications and branding. Some of these applications cannot be unlocked and/or may not function with a different carrier. Also, applications requiring a data plan may result in data usage charges from the original carrier.

In addition, the cell phone box may arrive unsealed and the cell phone may appear previously handled. The unlocking procedure requires unsealing the box and manually handling the cell phone. In this case, the cell phone should not be considered "tampered with" or "defective".

Pros: Item arrived fast. Ordered on Friday and it came on monday. Yet to start using it to see how it works. This rating is based on promptness of delivery only NOT the quality and functioning of the phone.

Cons: None yet.

5 out of 5 eggsDecent Phone

Pros: Good call quality, no drops
I think the battery life is excellent
Overall very pleased with phone

Cons: lack of pre-installed call profile app (solved by downloading free one)

Other Thoughts: For the money this phone is doing the job for me. Never seems to drop calls, speaker is loud and clear, battery lasts for several days with moderate use. Plenty of apps.
I use this mainly for phone calls (image that!?) and for that purpose, it is one of the best phones I've had.

3 out of 5 eggsDecent SmartPhone

Pros: Pros include phone having a flash for taking pictures. App compatible, and is compatible to hold an microSD card. The phones Android OS is great!

Cons: The internal storage is not that great, if I had known when I bought this phone that even though I had an MicroSD Card in and the phone was programmed by me to store the apps on the MicroSD- the apps was still going to take internal memory for system files. Another con was by default the apps cant be stored on an MicroSD card, you have to use a program for android phones to set a new path for the apps to be stored on the MicroSD card by default- I did not worry about trying to root the phone, due to my lack of knowledge on rooting smartphones. The other con I did not like was the phones lack of random access memory, it make it very hard to do many things at once it, and I had to close most of my apps before I could place a call or even text.

Other Thoughts: IT does make a great beginners phone for those who are used to smartphones yet, and wants to just get one to have one, and get used to having one.

5 out of 5 eggsDon't know where to begin

Pros: My first android phone and I love it. I do not use it with a data plan, mms settings can be provisioned easily so that this phone only uses internet for mms.
Voice quality is great, a very neat smartphone for people that want to upgrade their dumbphones. Main reason I bought this phone is for the looks, it is slick indeed. Fits perfectly on your palm.
As far as functionality it is great: it has everything android platform has to offer at the googleplay market.
Battery life is good for a smartphone, depending what is running your phones background. If you are smart tech-wise, this phone is very easy to modify, so that you can uninstall any bloatware(google maps,etc) that kills your ram and battery life.
Defenetively an iphone 4 killer for the price, even though iphone 5 was out for some time already.
I use wifi internet only.
Great phone overall.
Comes with two back lids, usb data cable, charger and manual.
Once again, love this phone.

Cons: 0

Other Thoughts: Comes in the box with older firmware which you can easily update to latest supported Gingerbread 2.3.6 from samsung kies (software on pc) or via phone using wifi.

4 out of 5 eggsgingerbread

Pros: Mine came with Android 2.3.6 installed (aka gingerbread). No need to spend time upgrading.

Also the description says 3.5 inch screen in one place and 5.-0 screen in another place. It's a 3.5 inch screen.

I only expect to use this for gmail and calendar access. I have no reason to expect it to have any trouble with that.

I was quickly impressed with the maps app.

For the price I pleased.

Cons: Haven't used it long enough to really tell. The case doesn't appear super durable, back cover to be specific... but it's not a high end phone so I didn't expect it to be. Comes with a spare white back cover if it is ever a problem.

5 out of 5 eggsLove at 1st boot

Pros: fast boot, sleek,easy memory up to 32 gb. T-Mobile from the start up

Cons: None really but wow phones cost too much (I use a 50 dollar one )

Other Thoughts: This is for my daughter and she kicked in half, From 1st boot she liked it and commented over how smooth it was over her other brand phone. I asked her about it's functionality and she states that it's really simple to navigate and great pictures. I don't have great knowledge in phones but according to her it's Awesome. ( added 32gb flash drive)

4 out of 5 eggsGood entry level android phone

Pros: Bought this for my wife. Decent battery life on Edge for an Android phone(~2 days with average use), adequate screen quality and CPU performance. This phone now ships with Gingerbread 2.3.6 and is quite stable. Light weight, comes with two back plate (black and white, of course the wife chose the white cover because it's "prettier"). Overall as a light weight smart phone it works quite well for an averge user. Work perfectly fine on T-mobile USA network over Edge. 3G bands only for AT&T or Red Pocket. Battery life unknown on 3G as T-mobie is our current carrier.
Good build quality for a budget phone. Decent swype keyboard (but see the small keyboard comment in cons). Gorilla glass. Quick GPS fix, decent RF signal quality and call clarify.

Cons: Small internal memory, can only carry a small number of apps for light weight users, not intended for heavy app user. ~150MB internal memory free for apps.
Low resolution screen, makes apps like maps, and touch typing a bit crampped, but the swype keyboard makes this a little better.
The phone case is plastic and does not seem to be very scratch resistent and the back plate is popped on with no latching system, so it's probably wise to get one of those TPU cases to prevent scratches and the case splitting from accident drops.
The cover for the USB port is a bit annoying, I would simply just leave open all the time to prevent damage from sliding it open and close repeated.
TouchWiz samsung interface is a bit clunky, I like the Android sense interface on my own HTC high end phone much better.
The flash memory card door is a bit finicky, I'm glad it's not something one has to fiddle with very often.

Other Thoughts: Despite seeing some on-line comments about button placement, neither me or my wife find the button placement too bad, no issue for us with accidental presses.
Should consider using a TPU case to prevent damages as I wouldn't want to even think about dropping this phone without the case.
The phone is light to the hand, and does not have a very premium feel like the high end HTC android phones, but it's certainly is not what I would call "cheapie" feel.
Have had no issue with touch interface, its seems to respond well with multi-touch, and the CPU despite being single core and only at 832MHz seesm to hum along on Gingerbread without issue.
All the latest Gmail, Google Voice, Maps, Navigation, apps works well, even on the low resolution screen.
Have no experience with games, as the wife has no interest in any of them.
As long as one has realistic expectation for a entry level smartphone, the Galaxy Ace is a very good unit indeed.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little phone

Pros: Phone works great. Purchased to rid myself of high data rate plans as I have wifi available most of the day. With all of the free apps at the Play store I have all of the features I could ever want.
Phone actually came with English language as the default. Since the phone is made for the Latin American market, I though I would have to switch it with instructions found on the web.

Cons: Camera is weak in low light situations and indoors.
Voice dial not pre-installed. Had to download an app for that. My last 3 non smartphones had that feature. Battery life is not the best.

Other Thoughts: Would highly recommend this phone for anyone looking for a lower price Android phone. It may not be the latest and greatest, but it works well

2 out of 5 eggssamsung ace

Pros: fast processor makes applications work great with lots of great app's ,,, easy to use

Cons: camera is not as good as I had hoped ,,, terrible battery life compared to non smart phone ,, lasts a day on standby ,, I thought there was something wrong with it till I read this is what you should expect with smart phones

Other Thoughts: one reason I got this phone was the factory spec's claimed better than average stand by time 300 plus hours and I get maybe 36 at best. I have turned off everything I can find to save power but no change. Maybe the battery is defective new out of the box?
