Well, it's only $59 and it includes $10 credit + 6 months of free eve and weekends. So the phone is, like, free!! Don't forget just the SIM card would be worth $25. Activate it, take the SIM out and use it on another phone, if you like. No matter how crappy the phone (and I don't think it can be that bad...I've used the U1250 and that's an ok phone), it's a no-brainer if you need a non-smartphone as a spare that you can throw in a purse, or the bottom of your briefcase, or carry while skiing or doing MMA!
All for a measly $10 a month, lets see anyone else offer something like that, and with any phone at all.
And one can hardly call a spec error like this a "serious overlook". The spec error saying the u2801 had wifi was a little more serious than this.
Okay so LOL moment on my half. I had to call up some people who have worked at WIND since launch (there aren't as many as there used to be) and had it confirmed. The GoWell Quip was the exact same phone in Spring 2010 that WIND stocked up on, and had to re-send back because it didn't support any AWS bands. Looks like they figured it out, and then forgot to put the details on the web. It's also probably why this phone has 0 warranty too. At $40 though, who cares.
How does wind plan on giving unlimited incoming on roaming? Non techies who buy this phone are gonna be charged roaming rates! !
