Once custom recovery is installed you could use it to remove some of the bloatware.

Not sure if you will be able to get that $30 plan with a used phone though. As long as you are activating a new SIM online at, it might work. Good luck.

Yep you can use a used phone with the $30 ppd plan with new Sim. This is an underrated phone
