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 eggs

Pros: - Unlocked, quad-band, WiFi.
- Works without sim.
- Works with ATT.
- If you don't have a data plan, there is an option to disable all data connections.
- Standard Micro-USB charging.
- Standard-ish battery (will take other mobile phone batteries).

Cons: Not the fastest Android phone on the market, but I was aware of that before I bought the device. The resistive touch screen can be a little difficult to use at times, but the navigation button makes it very easy to browse the different home screen windows.

Other Thoughts: If you google the newest android OS there should be a rom for this phone.

3 out of 5 eggsNot worth it

Pros: Small / Cheap / Quadband / Android

Cons: Touch screen and menu are painful to use. I can't press the edge keys on the virtual keyboard because the keyboard is so small (and I have small fingers). As for the 3 menu buttons, I have to press hard to get it to respond and often end up pressing the button twice by accident. The touchscreen has unpredictable response, so I end up launching apps when I intended to scroll. Very frustrating.

Other Thoughts: As a cheap phone, it may be useful as a backup device, but NOT as your primary phone.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Budget Phone

Pros: Unlocked Android smart phone for under $100. Compact size and light weight make it comfortable to hold. 3G data speeds & WIFI. Excellent call quality.

Cons: Not the fastest Android phone on the market, but I was aware of that before I bought the device. The resistive touch screen can be a little difficult to use at times, but the navigation button makes it very easy to browse the different home screen windows.

Other Thoughts: This phone was the perfect solution for me. I was looking for a budget Android device (less than $100) so I could use the threaded SMS feature and have access to data when I needed it.

I was comparing the Huawei U8100 to the Samsung Galaxy 5. I chose the Huawei because it was $40 cheaper and had a cleaner look to it. All in all, it's a great device.

I bought this phone to replace my GoPhone with AT&T, and it didn't work initially. It was no fault of the phone itself, it's just that AT&T locks the SIM cards to the GoPhone device it shipped with for 180 days. I had to call AT&T customer care to get them to unlock it, which was easy and quick. Now the phone works great.

2 out of 5 eggsHuawei U8100 Phone

Pros: Small phone, fits pocket nicely. Seems to be well made. Android 2.1 Eclair with access to Android Market. Tons of free Apps.

Wi-FI works very well with WPA2-PSK setup and can be used to access the internet without a SIM card inserted. This is useful for accessing the Android Market without a data plan.

Cons: NOTE: The one I received cannot be used to make a call on the AT&T network. Using a know good SIM with the correct APN settings the phone always indicates ' Network Busy ' after dialing a number. Display indicates maximum signal strength in my area. I can send text messages and access the AT&T Edge network just can't make a phone call. No 3G on AT&T only 2G.

Other Thoughts: Have not tried it on T-Mobile but the phone does indicate that it could be used on T-Mobile 2G or 3G networks in the Network Settings.

4 out of 5 eggsreview Huawei u8100

Pros: very inexpensive android . the smallest android i have seen . runs pretty fast once you move the apps to the sd memory card. fits right in your pocket. for me it is perfect for a back up phone just change the sim card and go. battery holds up pretty well. at this price you can not complain perfect phone for your kid or for someones first android experience. i am impressed with the new phones from hauwei for the lower end of the android market.

Cons: the few things i found difficult with the phone is the small screen. you better have good vision. i also had difficulty with the flash player and zooming of the screen size it has a double tap for zoom instead of what i am used to, where you touch and spread the picture for zoom to any size. you have to root and upgrade to the 2.2 android to be able to move the apps to the sd card. you can do that at xda forums, was not to difficult to do after doing a lot of reading but that feature is a must to keep the phone running fast. you also can put apps from your computer and then install them from the sd card if and i say if you know what your doing. you got to learn somewhere.

Other Thoughts: overall what a price you can not complain. do not know if there is planes to upgrade to 2.2 android but i would certainly buy this for my kid so as not to have a contract with the carrier for a more expensive phone. which your kid most likely will screw up or damage. i would look into the warranties for around 15 dollars. if it were me any way. kudos to huawei for the competitiveness in the lower end market .
