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”.

3 out of 5 eggsActually a Cliq XT

Pros: This is a decent phone for this price range. Good camera, speedy UI. Would have been nice if Motorola followed through with the upgrade to 2.1, but there are ways around it

Cons: This listing is very inaccurate. The phone is actually a Cliq XT which runs on the T-Mobile 3G bands, not the Quench. The phones are basically identical, with different radios, which is actually kind of a big deal. This phone will not connect to AT&T 3G. Also the listing states that the phone can be upgraded to 2.1. Motorola initially stated that an upgrade would be available; they have since decided to leave it on 1.5.

Other Thoughts: Newegg needs to update this listing. I am currently awaiting a resolution from customer service as I have an AT&T SIM and not being able to connect to 3G is a deal breaker for me.
