    Well, I just bought mine on Monday at $99!  I think I'll go in and get a price match!

  • That is an excellent deal! If I needed something quick I'd go for it. I already have a good "backup" phone, though.

    Holy crap batman what a deal!

  • jtzmax7jtzmax7 Bridgeport, USAPosts: 1,145

    ​ I know you had a zmax 2, I saw the deal on best buy was for the no contract go phone, does it come unlocked or do i need to use it with at and t, if you have an experience in that matter?

    It comes locked to AT&T but you can easily unlock the device with a code purchased from eBay for under $5. Some have had luck unlocking directly throught AT&T as well, but one thing to remember is to not turn the device on with the AT&T SIM in it. AT&T will not unlock the device until 6 months of service have been completed if the SIM registers on the network.

    Thanks! I appreciate it.

    ​ I urge you to grab it if you are considering it.  It may not be the top of the line, but $50 for a phone like this is a downright steal (imo).

    Whoops I meant $60, not $50

    My regular zmax had gotten a crack in it so I just bit the bullet and went for it! should be coming in soon!

  • sshasansshasan Staff Member United StatesPosts: 3,593 admin

    Keeping it in the family I see... good choice! Sad to hear about the original ZMAX tho.

  • jtzmax7jtzmax7 Bridgeport, USAPosts: 1,145

    Small crack in the glass, i'll still use it as my permanent casting device or something. I could have easily fixed it, but a new display assembly is almost as much as the zmax 2 at that price so hell, just excited to get it and hook it up to tmobile.

    A tip for someone wanting to unlock their phone (may or may not work).

    -When you buy the phone do not turn it on after purchasing.

    -Go to AT&T Unlock portal: AT&T Wireless Consumer Device Unlock Request

    -Enter IMEI and email, say that you are not a customer

    -Fill in the information and click submit

    -Wait maybe a few minutes to an hour or a few days and see if the request was approved or not.

    -If it's approved, enter in your unlock code, they should give you instructions to do so.

    If not approved, not much you can do besides go buy a code off an eBay. I've seen some report saying the method I mentioned above works for some.

  • jtzmax7jtzmax7 Bridgeport, USAPosts: 1,145

    Hoping that method works but if not i already looked and the codes on ebay are $5 so im not worried

    Being that I loved the Zmax, I might consider this, but I'm waiting for the ZTE Axon 7 instead.

  • jtzmax7jtzmax7 Bridgeport, USAPosts: 1,145

    I was considering it but for the price i couldn't say no. Maybe down the line later in the year ill pick up the axon 7

  • markstrootmarkstroot Terre HautePosts: 107

    It is a great deal

  • dnewman007dnewman007 United StatesPosts: 3,292 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    That is allot of phone for the money. Looks like the best low price phone on the market right now.

  • arysynarysyn IllinoisPosts: 1,067

    That definitely looks like a great deal for AT&T GoPhone.

  • jtzmax7jtzmax7 Bridgeport, USAPosts: 1,145

    It seriously is, the value for money is insane. I'm so excited to get it tomorrow.

  • runtohell121runtohell121 United StatesPosts: 2,114 ✭✭✭✭✭✭✭

    Yup, great deal for those who isn't looking for a high-end phone and supposedly unlockable (sim unlock) as I mentioned above.

  • arysynarysyn IllinoisPosts: 1,067

    It is an even better deal than what MetroPCS offered to me back many months back when I got the Zmax.

  • jtzmax7jtzmax7 Bridgeport, USAPosts: 1,145

    SUCCESS AT&T UNLOCKED MY ZMAX 2.
