Seems to be a good deal for a smart phone with a 5" display.
1.1GHz quad core processor
5MP main camera
2MP front camera
Good price, I wonder if Bagman from here is still around to unlock these.
You can probably buy unlock codes on ebay.
Does anyone know if, at some point (for example, after 12 months), you can get Vodafone to unlock the phone for free?
How much does it cost?
There's no charge to unlock a mobile that was bought more than 9 months ago
There's a $30 (inc. GST) fee to unlock a mobile bought less than 9 months ago.
Thanks for the link unlocked two sakari phones
SO, buy, unlock, flip for $60 on FBOOK marketplace?
Can this be easily unlocked by oneself?
Nah requires a hardware dongle.
Beware that the E8 has benchmark scores similar to the Alcatel Pixi 4, which in my experience was crushingly slow. So slow in fact that it is really not capable of multi-tasking, and you have to quit the previous app before you open a new one. I sold the Pixi 4 for an Alcatel 1, and Android Go OS feels much more usable.
I think this site rates Alcatel 1 much worse like 2 stars?
looks like sold out online, went in to store was sold out there to, limited stock.
