Manufactured by ZTE, the T-Mobile Concord is equipped with the necessary features to keep customers connected with friends and family.

    great another crappy phone why not something comparable to the galaxy s2 sprint i going to be selling for 379 

    • TMOLOYAL

      As said in the article this is the “most affordable smart phone” I don’t think they could claim that at $379.00. I am sure they will have a phone at that price point as well. 
      The Prepaid segment of T-Mobile’s business is steadily growing and often times those customers do not have much free/extra cash laying around so this is a way to lure those who would generally purchase a “dumb” phone with limited data capabilities to step up and purchase something that will be able to use some data they can be charged for.

    Monthly 4G on a 3G phone???

    • Aqxea2500

      Tmobiles 4g network is actually really fast 3g, so they call it 4g

      • Johntaajacobs

        Thats correct

      • fsured

         I hope they are marketing it properly so people understand they are not going to get “4g” speeds with that phone.  Could open up a field day for lawyers wanting money.

    why not………….just lower the price on something already out…then BOOM. Save some cost and SPACE

    I don’t think it’s the absolute cheapest one.  The T-Mobile Prism is also $99.99 at our T-Mobile store when you activate a Monthly 4G plan.  It’s also our overall best-selling device lol.

    I tested this phone for two months with bug fixes, operating system changes, another device after the first one and to be honest it wasn’t bad for a one hundred dollar phone. In the phone world, you pay for what you get. It was called a Pascal when I was testing it.

    Eh Since Its Affordable I Dont Mind Buying This Phone For My Mom.
