Boost REO Prepaid Mobile Phone $20 + Delivery (Free C&C) @ Target

170

Credit to pricehipster. Was $89.

No doubt a piece of crap, but at $20 it would make a good grandma/kid's phone.

The Amazon listing has a bit more hardware info., but it says it is both locked and unlocked? https://www.amazon.com.au/Alcatel-Boost-REO-5033T-Locked/dp/...

      Looks like Android Go 'Oreo' at least

        It seems you are right according to Big W if only it's trustworthy, as I fail to understand why it also says 'This phone comes locked to the Vodafone Mobile network.'

    Why do grandmas get crap phones? “ Here Nan, I have this crappy phone so straight away thought of you.”

    Unlocking fee may apply if not with Telstra

    •  

      Anyone know what the fee would be? Online search indicates potentially $25 but I haven't been able to confirm this.

        Thats makes the phone sound even cheaper

      Telstra aren't unlocking phones at the moment anyway. I spent weeks trying to get a phone I bought for my son unlocked, getting the runaround from 1258880, online chat and from various stores, before I just gave up and managed to swap the phone I had for an unlocked model for an extra $15. I would definitely advise never to buy a locked phone, unless you will use it with the locked network. And the MVNOs are not counted. Belong and Aldi SIM did NOT work with that Telstra-locked phone. Boost and Telstra postpaid did work, however.

    Got the phone yesterday but reluctant to open it due to the unlock fee. Can anyone confirm that it's definitely locked to Telstra network please? Thank you.

        reminder to confirm locked to Telstra/Boost ? not even working on mvno like Aldi sim ?

      Yes i am eager to know this aswell?

    i got the one i ordered today.
    it is locked to boost. i tried a different sim, but the phone was asking for a network unlocked code. hope this helps.
    anyone tried calling boost if they are unlocking this phone for free or minimal cost? thanks.
