- I was looking at the Alcatel 3088X, the Cat B35, and the forthcoming Energizer E280S (The Nokias running KaiOS don't really appeal to me for some reason). Anyway, having read various posts about the earlier versions of KaiOS 2.5 and it's multiple bugs & quirks, I really only want a phone with 2.5.3 onwards.
- The JioPhone has taken India by storm. With Reliance Jio offering the phone effectively for free, and generous data plans starting at as little as $0.50 per month, over 25 million people in India have chosen this device with dual camera, live video, and NFC payments as the phone of their choice.

About 2 weeks ago, I did a 'carrier update' to my Alcatel Go Flip 3 4052W (unlocked). I am using it with Mint Mobile, and the hotspot feature became unusable after that update. It was working flawlessly before the update, and I had no issues with it up until this update. I am on KaiOS 2.5.3, build 2C2D (4541).
