Best Buy is offering an ATT flip phone for $1.99 with free shipping. I bought one hoping to give it to my father as he is electronically challenged. It may also make a great glove compartment phone.

Thanks for that, just got one for $1.99. I hope it won't be cheaper on Black Friday.

Isamorph, are you planning to use it on FreeUp? Or on some other carrier?

And someone please talk me out of buying a flip phone! Please!

Yes, my FU free plan for now, but maybe later for an elderly woman I know who will be happy using a 4G LTE flip-phone. I just hope this new AT&T phone will work on MVNO now.

You can almost get yourself a Starbucks coffee for $2 if you would prefer it to a 4G phone.:dry:

Does it support VoLTE?

I'm kidding! I'm kidding!

I should buy it unactivated if I'll use it with FreeUp (or another ATT MVNO), right?

Oh Crap:

"AT&T Prepaid - Alcatel Cingular Flip 2 with 4GB Memory Prepaid Cell Phone - Dark Gray is no longer available for shipping.
Sorry about that! You still might be able to get it if you check nearby stores for availability."
...
"Store pickup is not available within 250 miles."

Oh well...

Is this OK for use with ATT MVNOs? It's $2.49:

Cricket Wireless - Alcatel QUICKFLIP 4G LTE with 4GB Memory Cell Phone - Silver

It does have HD voice. I bought mine unactivated and I'm assuming it's not locked to AT&T for any time period so that it can be used on GSM MVNOs.
