Entry level week continues in Canada. We first saw Rogers and Fido launch the Samsung S275M, TELUS is on deck to release the Nokia Lumia 620… and Chatr Wireless, a Rogers sub-brand, has started selling the ZTE F160. This is dubbed as “The Sleek” and nothing to lineup for, but for those who want an incredibly basic talk and text phone this might be a good choice. The F160 has a 2.4-inch display and probably its best feature is the 3MP camera. Priced correctly at $50 outright.

    I’d still take 14 of these over one iPhone 5.

      If you take the iPhone 5, you can then sell it and afford 10 of these! Think for a second!

  • BIll Murray

    heard this thing has great battery life

  • Hamid

    i’m not sure if i’d put this in the same boat as the 620…

  • John

    id it true that they do have unlimited talk and txt unlike wind and the limited plans? Just read on the fb page that they are limiting how many txts and how long you can talk on wind? so much for what jabroni said.. so sad to hear nuke was shutting down his circle jerk club.. Johnn is sh1tting his depends.. what will he ever do now?

      English, do you speak it?

    • T1MB0T

    The funny thing is that you probably going to pay more than the phone worth every month for your plan…

    • Hamid

      This phone would only make sense on chatr’s $25 plan, so no…

  • Mike

    @Brayden: what are you, 12 like most commentards on this waste of bandwidth site?

  • Dood

    Heh, Chatr… what a waste of a company. Even Rogers itself hates its bastard child.

  • Happyboy

    Phones like this is for the old or dump

  • TheTruth

    I hope public mobile replaces their ZTE E520 with this new model.
