About RadioShack No Contract Wireless: RadioShack No Contract Wireless lets you choose what's important to you. Low monthly rates keep you connected and let you talk, text and browse anytime you want. You'll have a choice of plans that feature nationwide coverage with no contracts to make it easy for you to stay connected wherever you go, any way you decide.

Getting Started: ACTIVATE at your local RadioShack store or by calling 1-866-750-7111.

CHOOSE A PLAN: that meets your needs. PAY AS YOU GO with cash, credit or debit card at any RadioShack location.

How It Works: Your monthly service begins automatically when you activate your account and have enough funds in your account to cover the cost of your plan. If your rate plan is $50, then that's all you need in your account to start your first month of service. Your plan amount will be deducted from your account balance automatically giving you immediate access to all of your plan's included services for a full month. Be sure to add funds to your account before the end of your month to maintain uninterrupted service. If you don't, your service will be interrupted until you add enough funds to cover the cost of your plan. Don't worry, we'll send you free text message reminders before your current month ends. You can even set up monthly Auto Top-Up with your credit/debit card or checking account to automatically pay for your monthly service -- it's easy and convenient!

Topping-Up Your Account: When it's time to top-up, visit any RadioShack store or call 1-866-750-7111 (top-up denominations available in $35, $50, $60 and $70). Store locations can be found at radioshack.com/storelocator. Be sure to use your funds before your account cancellation date, or carry your funds forward by topping-up or just using your service.

Comments about RadioShack® HTC Desire C No-Contract Phone:

I dropped my phone that was in a protective case purchased when I bought the phone at radio shack, and while it was not broken, one could only read the left side of the screen making the phone practically useless. Over all this is a great starter android that is pretty easy to use even when a beginner user. The cricket service is okay. mic on ANY headset will not pick up voice clearly, even when I bought a 30 dollar one. Radio shack mislead me for 2 weeks straight telling me they could replace my phone with no problems. I later found out that I did not get the protection plan that was told to me. Other than that I do like the phone. I did drop calls in pockets of dead zones, but just a short distance down the road I did have decent coverage. When I did go to Portland Oregon I had almost zero coverage when on their maps I should have had coverage. Good thing about this phone with cricket - you can call Canada with no extra charges.

Comments about RadioShack® HTC Desire C No-Contract Phone:

Battery life for me is terrible. Sometimes I have less then 50% left after 4 hours of being turned on, but not used. I have to charge daily and the phone is less then 6 months old. I never have service at the local library, yet others in the same room do..I will have to ask who their carrier is

    Comments about RadioShack® HTC Desire C No-Contract Phone:

    I use this phone for basic everyday all around use. Emphasis on basic. The size of the phone and lightweight material make it easy to handle in one hand. You don't have to be a finger yoga artist to reach across the screen. The screen is small, though, and can almost be too compact seeming like a cluttered dashboard on a car. This makes it unwieldy for games, so stick to small- screen-friendly apps that also don't use a lot of juice.
    Battery life is okay for its size and quality. The camera is very "clicky", snaps pictures with ease and there is little lag but no flash and shutter speeds are slow. Pictures come out pretty nice if subject is still and lighting is good. The low light setting doesn't do much for it. For general use this is about the best of the lower end smart phones to my knowledge.

    Love this phone. Cheapest I've paid for an android and so far the best. Only downside is you can't remove the sim card, however its 8gb and can easily transfer data to a pc. Runs very smooth and the beats audio is amazing. Best phone ever.
