No personal experience with the NUU.
Twigby sells it in their store (Verizon service) for $120.
Hello Mobile sells it in their store (T-Mobile service) for $100.
It's not on AT&T's Feb 2022 whitelist.
There is (was?) a Verizon-locked variant, so there may be other locked variants. (I didn't try to find model #'s.)
A quick review, but not an in depth report:


I believe jmac32here on reddit, moderator of r/qlink_hellomobile subreddit used one for a year or so: jmac seems friendly and outgoing, and would likely respond to an inquiry if someone is really interested.

Odd choice if it's not on AT&T whitelist.

Well, yes it is an odd choice, and the oddity didn't catch my attention when I posted earlier.  Thanks!
Just double-checked both AT&T whitelists  ("Will Work on the network", and "Service capabilities of Unlocked Devices) and no Nuu devices are listed. (Unless I've somehow missed it....)

Which either indicates that Beast knows something we don't about AT&T allowing this phone on the network after February, or Beast didn't concern itself with the whitelist issue.  I hope it's the former.

I noticed that it says that the phone is "Verizon Certified GSM Compatible" - will it be used on Verizon?

Probably not on Beast Mobile-- at least we haven't seen info indication that Beast is using the Verizon network.

  Apparently the Nuu was sold at some point as a Verizon Prepaid phone.  These may be the same model variant, but without the Verizon SIM lock enabled, and just a copy-paste of info from elsewhere.  (I think this isn't terribly uncommon: I know that US Cellular also sourced phones this way sometimes, where they were technically the "locked" variant, but without being locked.)

The phone is $130 from Nuu's website:   us.nuumobile.com/x6-plus-android-smartphone/

Apparently, the thing to do was get in early.  I have three active accounts that are still working.  Two of them since mid July and one since early August last year.  How long they will last is anybodys guess.

The Beast Mobile NUU X6 $149 offer is featured today in an article on Bestmvno.com. Perhaps that website knows the secret to contacting Beast customer support.
