Blu sells a lot of great budget cell phones in the US, some of which regularly go down to crazy low prices with different requirements and special conditions, but naturally, if all you’re interested in is paying as little as possible and jumping through as few hoops as possible, you can’t expect much in terms of specs and features.
The entry-level Blu View1 is now available to buy via Amazon.com, albeit only with Tracfone and Simple Mobile plans.

While the Tracfone phones offering the device at $49.99 with a prepaid plan of at least $20 per month.
