Summary: I spent eighty dollars on this phone. Let me tell ya what I think. This phone wasn't worth the money. One it won't update to 8.1. Unless you do it manually. Which you need a Windows 8 computer to do. They say it works for any carrier which is true.
Huawei has abandoned support for their Windows phones.

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.
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.
Summary: Terrible phone. Unable to turn off push notifications.. Getting pop ups every minute and could not use phone until the pop up messages were closed. This meant tapping close button as many times as the phone was in active.
Summary: Previously I have already warned everyone that my phone does not appear to properly function in Europe. That problem remained. In the meantime I exchanged many e-mails by Huawei USA about this issue.

If you're lucky this is a great phone, if not you will wish you never ordered it.

Summary: I really REALLY wanted to like this phone, and, when it works it is a great phone. But, the problem is it working. This phone randomly turns itself off, randomly gets strange graphics patterns on the screen, all of which require taking the battery out and then hoping it will turn back on when the...
Summary: Das Handy ist eigentlich baugleich mit dem Y 300, welches ich jetzt habe und mit welchem ich sehr zufrieden bin... ich habe es nur zurückgegeben, weil das Betriebssystem von Windows für mich der Horror war. Also: Wer Windows für Handys mag...bitte sehr!
