Chinese manufacturer Huawei will soon be entering the US market. The FCC today revealed the M318, a bare-bones CDMA 1x clamshell with MetroPCS branding. The phone does not have a camera or Bluetooth. Simple, entry-level phones such as this are often how Asian manufacturers enter the US market. After some time, many have then been able to bring some of their higher-end models to market. Huawei has a large handset portfolio for China and other parts of Asia.

Good Looking

excluding the phones features, or lack there of... it is a pretty cool looking phone with and bronze metallic finish is a nice touch
😁 ...now even homeless people can have a cell phone!
...uuhh...that's right...most already do...
I agree. and the new picture showing the red indicators (if they are that) makes it look pretty nifty in my opinion. Def. more appealing than the ut cdm-7025.

But hey, it doesnt have mp3, camera, bluetooth, etc... and because i think thats bori ...

Nice looking entry-level phone

I work for T-mobile and our top 2 selling phones right now are the nokia 6030 and 6030 prepay which is as basic as it gets(dual band, no camera, no bluetooth) so there definitely is a market for simple phones without any bells and whistles out there. Can't wait to see what high end models are in store tho.
my boyfriend has that phone
lol i hate it, it's too small.
That and Nokia makes the best phones ever.

ya know there are some people that just want a basic phone

Jeez get all over the fact that this has no features, some people just want a PHONE,
not a radio, not an mp3 player or camera
just a phone
why pay for more features when you dont use them
Damn right.
too damn basic for me
that tru most pple want that but is just boring 😢
yeah but they could've at least put in a speakerphone. that's one of the most basic features.
Agreed. My wife doesnt know how to use any features but dial her phone. She doesnt even know how to read text messages. I should have saved some money and bought a Huawei.

Huawei has been winning bids left and right outside the US on the network side of things.

I'm anxious to see how they're gonna do w/ their handsets.
