Great budget phone

$100 for a usable phone.  Enough said.

There's also lineage OS sorrysu for those so inclined.

That looks great but I'm terrified of not buying in a store so I can put the sim in and test? Perhaps I can go to Walmart - I think I saw one at Metrotown.

 @april26:

I would put a lot of faith in what will13am is suggesting.

But I certainly get preferring the hands-on approach.

That phone appears to be being sold through Walmart via an outside vendor. So you likely won't find it in a Walmart.

Re: Great budget phone

I looked at the shipping - it looks like it will only arrive here in 2-4 weeks, and I need it now. I visited Best Buy at Metrotown, and they only had 3 phones on the shelf, at around $129. Unfortunately there was no-one to help - it looks like you buy the box and it's your problem.  If I go to Walmart, will they have any unlocked phones?

There are risks with buying from these third parties.  Warranty is illusory, shipping can take a while, etc.  Personally I have always received shipment and have never had a need for RMA.  I have not bought from this specific seller.  I do have a LeEco X820 purchased from a store that has less than a household name.  I have had the phone for 18 months, still runs well with lineage OS support.

@april26 you may want to visit your local Staples store.  I haven't checked in a while but they used to carry several unlocked phones in store.
