    Need sprint lte flip phone for google voice

    Am currently using an alcatel one touch retro flip phone along with smart phones on google voice. Battery life is terrible (2 hours of speaking) and call quality could be better. Can anyone rec another sprint flip phone. I like to answer calls with the flip phone because it is lighter and answers calls just by flip opening. My ringplus sprint mvno plan has 1 gb of data so would prefer phone with lte that can be used as usb modem. USB modem and lte far from critical (have tethering on smart phones). Main considerations are flip design, call quality, battery life and light weight. Any suggestions or should I stick with alcatel which is not terrible except for battery life.

    Don't care about lte. Purpose of flip phone is call quality for long calls. Somehow I thought alcatel retro being new on sprint prepaid had lte but unimportant

    Obviously any flip phone is going to be older so that probably means searching eBay and verifying that the ESN is clear. It should be pretty cheap though. So if you have to have a flip and you just can't deal with the Alcatel, I might suggest something like the Kyocera Dura XT or Samsung M400.

    Here's another idea: Sometime early in 2016 (most likely January) The Wand Company will be releasing, through ThinkGeek.com and other fine retailers, the Star Trek Original Series Communicator BLUETOOTH HANDSET! That's right, you'll now be able to make & receive cell phone calls like a 23rd Century Starfleet Officer! \\//,

    Samsung m300? You lose CDMA 800 coverage on Sprint's SMR spectrum going that route. May or may not be an issue depending on your location. Regardless, if you're happy, I'm happy. Good luck!
