Terrible OptionI bought this like a month ago, due to COVID 19, there were no other options either in Best Buy or T-Mobile, It was this or a Motorola, Everything works more or less according to the price, but all the pairing options via Bluetooth or Wifi are absolutely unstable, it connects and disconnects all time, and I mean every single minute, Hopefully, there's an upgrade or something to do.

Cdma phonePhone cannot connect to google maps location sharing, does not connect to internet when not connected by wifi. In ad there is no mention of the network the phone is made for., and that is Cdma and that is outdated. This phone is most likely surplus and being sold to make room for 5g with no mention of yesterday's technology.
