Best phone for your obamaphone SIM card (1 Viewer)

Alright so depending on which company you have your obama phone through, you're going to be running on a subsidiary of different carriers. For Assurance Wireless (virgin mobile/sprint) and any AT&T carrier, this is the phone you should be getting:


The Sprint version is the 'Sonim XP Strike' and the AT&T version is the 'Sonim BOLT'

These dumb phones are basically indestructible. They're waterproof, shock proof, dust proof, crush proof. They can take a hell of a beating. They exceed DoD specs, and were meant to be used by people with really, really shitty jobs.

Best of all, you can pick one up in excellent condition for about $10 on eBay.

Unfortunately, you won't be able to swap your SIM out to this handset with some obama phone carriers. Please look here and check:

Total amount

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
