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".

5 out of 5 eggsBlu is GOOD.

Pros: Please Note that I am comparing the Deco to my Blu JENNY. You decide if there is any value in my comparison.
I bought the Blu Jenny on special sale. It works like a charm. I used it with a free SIM I got in Thailand, and at home with a pre paid Sim. I assume Deco model is a little better because it has extra features. Looks cheap but, that is a good thing because it may keep someone from stealing it. The small size is great because it's so easy to tote. Radio with built in antenna is the best. It works really well. Media player also good. I won't comment on the camera. I only use cell cameras in a pinch. Phone calls works as good as any other cell phone. Here is the best part. They actually have an interface that you can use without a manual, and it won't take you too long to get the hang of it. I shared this phone with another person whom loved too. Quad band, Unlocked and dual sim at these prices are great in my opinion. PS the 5 stars are for the JENNY and I give it that because it offers a lot of features for the money. I was tempted to give it 4 stars because it lacks the mini plug, but heck it don't hurt any of the main reasons I bought the phone for.

Cons: This is no help to you unless you are interested in the Jenny, but here goes. Would love it to have WI-Fi. Have no idea why it don't have an mini-plug for earplug etc. However, the speaker is loud and clear so you
play your music if no one objects.

Other Thoughts: I like this companies products. If they had a windows phone with WI-FI for a fair price I would seriously consider it with name brand products. Like Nokia and Samsung etc.

2 out of 5 eggsaverage phone

Pros: has everything a basic phone needs with basic user interface.

Cons: phone is smaller than anticipated.

text keypad is extremely small. hard to get used to.

hard to hear person on other end of the call even when on speaker phone the volume is not impressive at all. i had to use my $70 bluetooth device to hear others. although for some reason, the music player is extremely loud and clear when on speaker.

says it comes with two games, it only comes with one. i can't access the blu store from my phone. maybe cuz i don't have data with my carrier.

the manual is there, but it won't tell u which button to press for what. it took a while for me to find the lock/unlock and to figure out some other features.

Other Thoughts: overall, don't expect much from it. its a cheap phone. i only bought it because my old phone is broken and i need a temporary replacement.

1 out of 5 eggsWASTE of money

Pros: cheap, small, keyboard

Cons: cheap material, doesn't have an options menu, so there is no way to change settings, no music player, so the 3.5mm input is useless, trying to return now

Other Thoughts: this is a cheap phone, spend a few more dollars and get a better one

5 out of 5 eggsTotally worth the sale price

Pros: Considering the price, it's difficult to complain. In fact, I wasn't expecting something that nice. Very simple interface, not many features but all the basic ones are there and work fine so far. The phone is smaller than I thought but this is actually a pro for me. Easy to keep track of which sim you're using.

Cons: Again, for this price you cannot complain.

Other Thoughts: This is a very small phone so the keyboard is also small. My wife has small hands so not a problem for her but might be for others. Still better than no keyboard.

5 out of 5 eggsFound Vol, Found Key lock!

Pros: WOW! Vol found using the FM radio... "-" key lower, "+" key higher volume - shift not necessary (QWERTY key "I" and "O" are the same function) for volume whenever phone is producing a sound from speaker, earphone, or bluetooth.
Key lock is same as old Nokia... menu (left of ring) then the "*" key with or without shifting.
SPEAKERPHONE functionality TOO!

Cons: I now believe this phone has all functions. Look forward to the reviews coming to teach us all what cannot be found in the documentation (pretty pictures are not enough to find all usefullness in this phone). Volume found, but no equalizer found yet for the music quality of the player or the radio. Amazing to include full decode of mp4/mp3 multimedia. Promise of facebook, message services and internet as well as apps are unexplored but appear to be nuggets hidden also but can be found!

Other Thoughts: FM has assignable manual and easy tuning seek for station presets. Good radio reception. Background operation lets use automatically interrupted for phone functionality on calls. While all controls are probably present, a learning curve is apparent as obstacle to easy operation. Once found, once understood, seems all are easily accessible on the QWERTY keyboard.
Other review of another BLU phone says 3G, 4G phone modem is not available yet I have had good reception where my Blackberry was marginal. Bluetooth was untried as I lack a wireless headset to test it out.

4 out of 5 eggsReplace B Berry dunked in a pool!

Pros: Blackberry 8900 with troublesome trackball died inadvertently. No longer needed the push email capability so I took a chance on this on promo for $29.99 from NewEgg. Got it today. Unlocked it immediately was found by Cinti Bell using my SIM card and an 8Gb micro SD card to store mp3 and pics on my family plan. My 17 year old daughter likes the click ring navigation and center button over the trackball. She loves the QWERTY for texting, the facebook and browser and says the screen resolution is better than the B Berry (compare $190 refurb to $30 for THIS). I get to avoid a 2 year contract and to keep a favorable unlimited text and data family plan with the service I have in place without penalty or additional plan commitment! Despite the cons below, I believe it is very capable and rugged enough while the compact size and low weight are acheved. NICE PACKAGE OVERALL (if I find the volume control it is golden... have not needed it yet and everything seems to work as spec by NEgg.

Cons: Lighter in heft than the earlier phones I have used however, it seems rugged and functional. Might miss the Wi-Fi however it has bluetooth and full browser as well as a bonus FM radio and mp3 music, mp4 video player capability. Might need another battery if all the uses are used. You won't pay this little for a music video player, and you get the phone functionality for FREE! Wow. Have not found a keyboard lock key yet nor the volume which I expect is found in a menu selection. Only used for several hours today after UPS delivery.
Instructions and website are sparse. I found almost everything as easy for anyone already familiar with a blackberry or equivalent bar phone. TIPS: the SIM card slides into place, the micro SD has a sliding open bracket release used to hold it down over the contacts, back snaps off with a coin slot in case lower corner. Battery fresh and with charge out of box.

Other Thoughts: Light, easy to navigate without "touch" but instead, center button and 4 points around pink click ring work surprisingly well. Chose "pink" because it is easier to find on a cluttered desktop yet is fine without a gender inferred. Still found no volume control. Website accurrate but little help to a new user. Lost an egg for it but have not needed to change the volume yet! - Have not tried it in a noisy enviornment though.
