Pros Lively, easy interface, good screen illumination, good call quality. Case feels good in hand. Wi-Fi was easy to set up. Good user manual. The charger cord is also a USB cord for easy photo downloads to my PC. 5MP camera with zoom seems OK so far.
Cons Really hate the low battery life (must recharge this every night). The lack of camera flash really limits photo opps. WARNING: you will not be able to return or exchange this phone once you open the box, if you decide you don't like it.
Summary Overall, not a bad prepaid GoPhone but I'm glad I'm not locked into a contract with it. I didn't discover the lack of flash until I opened the box, so I am stuck with this phone. OTOH, the phone alerts me to my $2/day usage and it's easy to replenish $$. Good AT&T customer service support.
Pros Easy interface, Great camera 5mp, runs on gingerbread 2.3.4 and feels good in hand. Excellent quality on calls.Pre-paid or no contract go phone. Great android starter phone. micro sd included 2gb. But expandable to 32gb. very smooth touch interface for th
Cons Small screen 3.5, no large internal memory to speak of, and a bit laggy during loading.
Summary Over all the ATT/ZTE Avail is a surprisingly great phone for the price and quality you get. It's not a highend smartphone, but it is definitely worth your time to check it out. the ATT Avail is in stores now and availiable at the no commitment price of $149.99 through ATT.
Pros Inexpensive, reasonably size screen. Entry level. Somewhat responsive.
Cons Horrible battery life, mediocre connectivity. Internal memory is a joke.
Summary Well, the adage that states you get what you pay for is true. I paid $100 and I am not sure if it is even worth that.Well, a week in, and trolling forums on my free time has yet to yield any positive results with WiFi. I did an software update which did nothing but erase everything on the phone and force me to start over. That was't so bad since the phone is new. File explorers and WiFi apps don't seem to help either.
This phone has the worst battery life I have ever encountered in any phone. The battery died on me while the phone was off. I can charge it for hours on end and it still does not take a full charge. Rebooting the phone causes you to lose at least a 50% of the charge as well.
Connectivity is just as much of a joke as the battery. Signal will literally fluctuate while leaving the phone on a table. Wifi doesn't seem to have functionality. I can be downloading something and it just stop downloading. God forbid you actually rely on the AT&T network for functionality, you will be sorely disappointed. I switched from a no contract Verizon phone to this to be even more disappointed than I was before. Save your money for a real android.

The options that do work for me are not practical. One involves power cycling the router whenever I want to connect or the phone goes to sleep, obviously not doable when I don't have physical access the the router, and even then, it is not good. Otherwise, I can ping the phone from the router utilities, but that only helps if I have admin access to the router, or the third option as to setup a fixed IP address on the phone, which is really only good if you are planning on only using Wifiat home.
This phone seems to work fine, otherwise. I would not recommend buying it unless you were planning on not using the web regularly (opr at all) or had an (near) unlimited data plan
Updated on Oct 15, 2012After less than two months I can say that this is the worst phone I've ever used. I was a Palm fan before this. When My pixi bit the dust, I decided it was time to get an Android. I understand that this is an entry level budget phone, but seriously makes me want to leave android and never ever ever again.
Apps foce close constantly. I find myself rebooting the phone literally a dozen times a day to get even basic functionality from this device. I have to do battery pulls regularly, which is an obscene pain, since I like to keep phones in cases.
Many people reference the low memory issues of this phone, and I have yet another to add. This phone only seems to work with the 2GB micro sd card that comes with the device. I have tried two separate memory cards that work perfectly fine with other devices, have data corruption with this phone. Any apps that do allow you to load from the memory card will not load from any memory card other card. GARBAGE, GARBAGE, GARBAGE.
Pros all good great wifi feature
Cons no talk or end key
Pros Small form factor that fits in pocket
Easy to use
Cons Limited Memory
So-so photo and video
Summary I just got this phone. In general I like it. Fast and smooth. I had the LG Prime before which I liked but the screen was a little smaller, even though the overall phone is almost exactly the same size (fits nicely in my pocket). Photo and video quality is so-so but that is to be expected at this price. No flash, for example. My problem is that the internal memory seemed to fill up the first day I got it. I was able to download a program to move some apps to the SD card but some of the big ones (like Facebook) refused to move. There does not seem to be a program that can root this phone (yet). But I soon discovered what was filling up the memory: the "updates" to all of the programs. Facebook's update came in at around 7 mb alone, bigger than the original program! You see, I made the mistake of hitting te automatic update in Google Play which updated about 12 different apps. Don't do it. Just update the programs you use all the time and even then check to see how big the update is. If it is huge and the program has been working fine, don't update. I uninstalled a bunch of updates and now I have lots of room.
