Oystr - Now with $20 of Free Airtime

Oh, and Kyocera's Oystr (Virgin Mobile of course) has joined the ranks of the Shorty and the K10 Royale as being available for free with $20 in airtime, or rather $20 including $20 in airtime upon activation. So now you have a choice of "free phones with new agreement" that spans the sturdy though black-and-white Shorty, the color, web-enabled Royale and the lame flip Oystr. Not great phones, but the price is right.

Nice use the airtime,and heave the phone :P. Shorty much more solid phone..I sure wished NOKIA wasnt
getting out of the CDMA business :(...Oh yeah, you can get a bit better battery life out of that oyster if you play the display light settings ..Turns out its on
all the time the phone or at least it was on mine.

It'll be a sad day when Nokia quits making their basic candybar phones. At least they will still be making GSM ones that I can use with my T-Mo sim.

I was at one of my local Targets and I got to see the new Moto w370 out on display...In my oppinion I dont think this phone is that great, its has a cheap plastic feel to it and the keypad is a thin rubber that feels like if you have sharp nails you can cut right through it...it was beside a Moto krazr, and believe me, its no Krazr, not even a krazr wanna be..LOL...I still think all the CDMA phones are far better made than all the GSM phone for Tracfone....."and thats the bottom line, cause the Turk said so!"...Woooooooooo!

how can you tell if a phone is CDMA or GSM?

Turk said...

GSM Phones: Cingular and T-mobile
CDMA Phones: Verizon and Sprint

Most Tracfones are GSM and all Net10 phones are GSM.....if your asking about Tracfone phones, just go to Tracfone.com and click on "coverage map", type in your zipcode, and they'll show you a map of the USA...all the phones listed at the top right are CDMA Tracfones and all the phones listed on the bottom right are GSM phones.

I hope this answers your question some what, if you have more questions just ask, we'll all be glad to answer.

My girlfriend loves 'her' w370 (remember, she pilfered it from me).I was going to go buy another for my collection, but maybe I will wait for one of the two LG's to surface.

I've been reading in a couple groups and blogs and its being discussed that the new phones have full web access. Can someone with a W370 confirm this myth?
