Learn more about the BLU Samba JR Camera


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 eggsnot good after-sale service

Pros: cheap

Cons: looks small, but too much delicately made. It's damaged on screen display just after a air trip, only put in the carry-in baggage, and within the original box! Now I have to read a incomplete screen display!

Other Thoughts: no purchase on this brand any more.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Backup Phone

Pros: Very light and small. Qwerty keyboard. Feels durable. Performs well as an entry-level phone.

Cons: No threaded-style text messages. Slow menus. Limited instructions/set-up. I had to figure out how to lock the phone (holding middle button and space bar) and etc. by playing with it. Haven't figured out how change home screen icons.

Other Thoughts: I bought this phone to use when I go out since my normal phone is quite large and valuable. This phone was only $20 when it was on sale so I'd recommend buying it when it goes on sale again. I do not think I could actually use this phone as a normal phone since it is quite dated.

4 out of 5 eggsnot bad

Pros: Cheap when on sale. Dual SIMs. Quad band. MicroSD. Music player. FM radio. Physical keyboard.

Comes with a MicroUSB cable and a charger. Works as a USB drive when you plug it into the computer (also says it can function as a webcam).

Cons: Garbage camera (says it's 1.3mp, but it produces tiny, tiny images). Software is hilarious after coming from a real smartphone. Instructions are basically non-existent.

Other Thoughts: If you need a cheap phone while you're waiting for a replacement for your smartphone, you could do worse. Or you can give this to a kid and not care about it getting broken or lost.

Does anyone know how to update the apps on this (Facebook, twitter, etc.)? I can't get it to work, and Blu customer service is useless.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat price,great phone

Pros: price,nice sized qwerty keyboard,a simple phone and text unit

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I bought 2 of these because my kids with their fancy phones and my wife with a basic phone like to text a lot. so these are for me and my wife to make the texting easier and they do even for my old eyes I can see the keyboard.
