Summary: I suggest anyone considering buying ANY Huawei Windows phone do some research before you buy. Huawei has abandoned ALL support for their Windows phones. They have refused to pass ANY of the 3 updates to the operating system to the carriers.
Did Not Work with Straight Talk's Bring Your Own Phone Plan (Confirmed by Straight Talk)
29 December 2014
Summary: Purchased in: 2014. Bought for: Myself, to use with Straight Talk with their Bring Your Own Phone Plan. Pros: The Huawei Ascend W1 - Windows 8 Smartphone - Unlocked, is a decent quality phone, and for the price I really have no complaints on the quality of the product.
Summary: Beware, this is the International model of this phone. After hours , and HOURS, of trying to get this phone to work, I found out that this is an International phone and you can not add the APN number. Many of the functions that are advertised with this phone are not functional.
Great phone for price..... Useful to call, text and surf the net

Summary: The product was shipped quickly and as was stated on the info..... I opened the box, Inserted a AT&T SIM card, logged in to my father's Microsoft account and that was it. I have an iPhone 5s but I ordered this phone for my dad because his wasn't working, and I have to say I was impressed with it.
