    I bought this device on eBay for $75 brand new because T-Mobile wouldn’t update my 640 to Windows 10 and I didn’t want to go through all the unlocking stuff. I wanted to check out WM 10 Mobile

    With the continuous updates that Microsoft keeps consistently pushing through, the Fierce XL has turned into a really decent device for $75. It’s not a high end device. The camera still sucks LOL But the updates have made it very usable day to day for me

      Agreed, I am not foolish enough to say my Fierce XL is as slick as an iPhone or non-exploding Galaxy but for the less than $100 price its a fantastic phone that does everything I need a phone to do. The updates have greatly improved it.

    This is the second least expensive phone I’ve owned, and it’s received the best support……

    I received the update and it actually made EDGE a decent browser. Before the update my Alcatel would lock up with EDGE but now it works well. This phone now works smoothly!
