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 eggsDo not touch

Pros: none

Cons: they use an authorized vendor to unlock the phone, thus the warranty is void, also the vendor is not a member of the bbb and the vendor lies

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well with T-Mobile

Pros: Decent performance (OS)
Great display

Cons: Weak photo/video quality
Somewhat short battery life
No upgrade path for OS

Other Thoughts: Overall happy with the phone - the most annoying flaw I found that all the pictures taken are geotagged incorrectly with the East West coordinated flipped around. I'm sure it works great for people on the eastern hemisphere, but not so much in North America - anyone else noticed this problem?

5 out of 5 eggsOverall Perfection

Pros: This headset is AMAZING. This is my first headset for Xbox 360 with surround sound. I was surprised by the difference between stereo and Dolby!
- Comfortable
- great sound, no need to buy any more expensive headsets

Cons: - the ear cups block out almost all the sound. Me living with a large
Family I NEED to be able to hear without having to constantly pull the headset off
- the ear cups make my ear hot but that's a minor issue.

This amazing price for quality AWESOMNESS takes any cons that there currently are away when you try these put for your self.

Other Thoughts: Durable, great price, sound is amazing. I never heard footsteps while playing COD MW3 before... Now I hear every little layer of sound!

4 out of 5 eggsAlright

Pros: Solid performance on an affordable device. Not an ugly phone.

Cons: If you think Froyo is a con, then it's a single core Froyo device.

Other Thoughts: Works out great with Tmobile

1 out of 5 eggsReturned to Dell within a week

Pros: Worked out of the box with AT&T

Cons: This phone malfunctioned out of the box. Constantly crashed and rebooted and the phones vibration function stopped working after 3 days. Did a hard reset and couldn't get this phone to vibrate on texts, calls, haptic feedback.

Other Thoughts: Bought this directly from Dell in September 2011.

1 out of 5 eggsDo not get this

Pros: It should work

Cons: Its ANDROID 2.2 - very old

The processor is only a single core! Don't waste your time with this old phone. Also don't get Dell for smart phones... Get either Samsung, HTC, Motorola or LG and make sure its the latest version of Android.

Other Thoughts: You've been warned.
