droidxt: Noel Leeming has it for $249. Went to Warehouse Stationary and they priced matched and discounted it to $237! Insane deal! They said they were not sure if it worked on 2degrees, but it works fine. Doesn't work on spark/skinny however. 


If it had I would have bought one for the wife..

I'm in exactly the same boat! I've even thought about seeing if she'd switch telcos from Spark to either 2 Degrees or Vodafone, just for the phone! (But she's on a Spotify package which the whole family relies on...).

This is great news!!

I expect you can't say but is there any feeling that VF/ZTE will have a solid update program for these handsets? I know it is a dream but would love to know that we will eventually see Android M on these

What about the Smart Prime?  Any updates in the works for that?

Any change to the Android version = platform upgrade.

I'd have said it was 5.1 if 5.1 was coming tomorrow. :)
