Hey guys I just saw the ZTE ZMax 2 is only $59.99 this week at Best Buy which is a great deal. I figured I would share the news
zte zmax 2 - Best Buy
That's an excellent buy at that price!
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!
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
Steps below to get unlock code from ATT:
- - Do NOT open the retail packaging before unlocking
- Do not power on the phone with sim inside
- Click https://www.att.com/deviceunlock/#/ accept terms and click Continue
- Select "Non-ATT Star Mobility customer"
- Provide information such as IMEI, First Name, Last Name IMEI and email address & Submit
Steps to do after submitting request to ATT:
- Check your email and look for an email from The ATT device unlock department (firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Open the email and click link in the email to confirm your request (that you previously submitted)
- Wait for your Unlock code to be delivered in email within 48 hrs
- Do not power on the phone with sim inside until you get your code then follow instructions below
- Use another carrier (non The ATT) SIM in device and power on, once prompted enter the device unlock code received from ATT
My regular zmax had gotten a crack in it so I just bit the bullet and went for it! should be coming in soon!
Keeping it in the family I see... good choice! Sad to hear about the original ZMAX tho.
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.
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.
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
It is a great deal
That is allot of phone for the money. Looks like the best low price phone on the market right now.
That definitely looks like a great deal for AT&T GoPhone.
It seriously is, the value for money is insane. I'm so excited to get it tomorrow.
Yup, great deal for those who isn't looking for a high-end phone and supposedly unlockable (sim unlock) as I mentioned above.
It is an even better deal than what MetroPCS offered to me back many months back when I got the Zmax.
SUCCESS AT&T UNLOCKED MY ZMAX 2.
