    The unlocked GSM (AT&T and T-Mobile) version is selling for $179 (8GB) and $199 (16GB) on Amazon, Motorola.com.

    This $99 figure just blow that out of the water. But it's carrier locked.



    -------------------

    Just found out why Verizon is selling this at a loss.

    They only have 2 plans for this phone

    $60 for unlimited talk, text, 2GB of data
    $70 for unlimited talk, text, 4GB of data

    That pricing isn't bad. It's pretty much comparable to AT&T Gophone service.

    AT&T will probably add it to their GoPhone lineup too.

    It is when you can get the same for $40-$50 with more data with other prepaid carriers.

    It's pretty bad when comparing to Straight Talk.

    $45 a month: unlimited talk, unlimited text, 2.5GB of LTE data, unlimited 2G data after that

    Yes, because network quality and reliability counts for $ZERO when comparing plans. :rolleyes:

    It still may be a little on the expensive side...Verizon always is...but show me a study that determined Straight Talk (whatever the hell that is) to have the same network/voice/data quality and reliability of a conglomerate like Verizon.

    With Straight Talk, you have the option of AT&T or T-Mobile 's network.

    Is it running running on CDMA or LTE? Never mind CDMA. No deal.

    Fantastic option. Too bad it isn't LTE though. I would gladly pay the upcharge for VZW/AT&T prepaid over any Sprint/TMo based MNVO

    Yeah I have been using ST for a couple years now, nice saving money. I did notice though that when I bought my new lte st sim my signal fluctuates a lot from no signal to lte
