I bought this at Target for my daughter and it's a great little phone. Yes, it's slow, has no storage, is made of plastic, but if she drops it - who cares? It runs Pokemon Go pretty well and has space for only 4-5 more apps. The T-mobile one has lots of bloat, but the useless apps can, at least, be disabled. I even went back and bought another one as a backup in case I ever break my phone. It has band 12, which is T-mobile's long range LTE signal. This actually makes it BETTER than my primary phone that doesn't have band 12.

Where do you guys got the phone has LTE? IT DOES NOT HAVE LTE!!! Its only 3G. Also it has 1.77 GB available before the update. If you update it it only has 620mb. The phone is utter garbage!!!

T-Mobile (which is the network this phone is riding on) uses its Band 12 LTE signal to reach areas that not even 1900MHz EDGE/HSPA signals can reach. You can even make phone calls via VoLTE, so it's not just for data.
That's the power of 700MHz.

Anonymous, 22 Sep 2015they'll ditch band 12 since it's not VoLTE capable.Nope. If it's being sold by T-Mobile, it'll have passed their VoLTE certification process, so it'll both have Band 12 and be VoLTE capable.
