    Ok so my girl has boost and her phone is broke. I'm on a limited budget as far as what I can get her. I'm looking into the ZTE phones. Amazon has them for around 140$ ..but if I can get a better deal and a better phone I would live it. Please let me know of websites or anything....thanks

    Check carriers in the area. If there's one better for her (IOW, has better coverage in the places she needs service), switch her to that. ('m not going to shill anyone, but I have a favorite mvno.)

    Otherwise, the ZTE isn't a bad just-above-entry-level phone.

    I'd do some research on ZTE before buying from them again. I bought the original Warp when it came out and it had a few bugs and it was never supported with updates. I nursed it along for almost a year until the 4G LTE phones became more readily available. Whatever phone you decide check Amazon, Best Buy and Boost's website and read the customer reviews. Especially the most current reviews.

    I've been rocking a Warp Sequent for about 5 months with no issues. It's been quite durable (dropped a couple times without a case), reliable, and the battery still lasts all day. No complaints thus far. Plus it's easy to root and some good Roms out there for it.

    Do your research before you start saying Boost doesn't offer thing. I wouldn't have posted if they didn't.

    Well I take it back, I don't want a device that doesn't support LTE. It looks like Moto G does not support LTE...what a shame!

    Unfortunately that is correct, it doesn't have LTE. :(

    For anyone who don't need LTE it's a great phone for the price.
