Disclaimer

Disclaimer
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".

1 out of 5 eggsDON"T DO IT!!!!

Pros: Cute pretty and sucks wifes in for the kill

Cons: The return policy from New Egg for phones is very confusing and is written to dissuade unlocked phone returns. The camera on the phone was non working on arrival (DOA) and the hoops you need to go through to return it are unnecessary and unacceptable. The O.S. is old with out a proper upgrade available.

Other Thoughts: There are many other choices available from other company's that offer a quality unlocked and rooted phone for the same price or lower. Get the newest O.S. you can find for your price point. And be sure it is both rooted and unlocked. Also be sure to check the return policy with the seller via phone or email (get a name) before you purchase.

4 out of 5 eggsMotorola FlipSide MB508

Pros: Android OS, WI-Fi range, and plays MP4 videos at smooth frame rates. Price is good for its configuration. This phone have better reception in most areas that are considered dead zones than most other phones I used including HTC Tilt2 and I-Phone.

Cons: Came with Android v2.1 (Eclair) and not ICS, but manually upgraded to v2.2 with no issues. Otherwise I would have given it 5 eggs instead of 4.

Other Thoughts: It would be nice if there was a way to upgrade this phone to use ICS instead. Android OS for phones out does Windows or Apple OS phone any day.
