Telus Samsung J1 Prepaid Smartphone - Black - NPPLSSGJ16BL is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from update from my original review after buying this phone now that its been over 4 months i can update my original review.Everything i said hold true but one exception,the phone does let you move some apps to an external sd card yaaay..so thats a great improvement and the fact that it does everything else i want it to do its almost perfect but the one scary thing about this phone now,which may be with all SG models is that it eats your data plan like a hungry dinosaur in Jurassic Park :(..so mine is now unlocked and i switched to chatr and set the phone to 3G and 2G mode and the data lasts a long time now, so the phone itself is fantastic with the only drawback is you need tons of data if you want a data plan using LTE speeds , otherwise if your ok with 3G speeds then this phone is awesome..well done Samsung and yes i will still avoid iPhone like the plague..for too many reasons to put down here as i would end up trying for days ;)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from best budget phone hands down I just picked this up today for 33% less than the listed price ,so i bought it on sale for a ridiculously low price for a 2016 Samsung and OMG was i pleasantly surprised , batter charged fast,resolution is same as hi end phones including iphone ,which i find ok but not the best if your paying $1200 fr a phone. I saw many bad reviews of this phone and i must say , i will now ignore these bad reviewers because my Samsung Galaxy J1 runs fantastic , I had to download smartswitch to transfer files, but once i did that i was in heaven ,with moderate use and no intense periods of gaming the battery looks ike it will last me a day and a half,not bad for a small battery , the only real downside to this phone is you cannot move any apps to the sd card ,if you put one in so you have to download only the apps you really want to keep it running fast and smooth but i am fine with that because all my apps are on my tablet..tytyty Samsung you made me happy yet again..BRAVO 1000 stars

The "internal storage" SD format option has been disabled by Telus(?) for 6.0.1 OS. Thus internal storage of 8gB is down to about 3 GB out of the box. The move to SD option for apps only moves the into emulated storage not the SD!! How can I fix this?

Asked by: sebski

What are the details on this prepaid plan -- is there a minimum level for subscription/purchase? How long will this phone be locked to Telus? ..can it then be unlocked at no charge? Can this phone be purchased outright as unlocked? Thanks.
