Great deal if you like the small form factor. Basically a 6S in a 5S form factor.

No, it's not easy to unlock. AT&T closed the loophole that allowed these to be unlocked for free, though there is always a chance the BB ones aren't activated or somehow slip through. I give that less than a 1% chance of success (mine came from an AT&T store).

I eventually got mine unlocked via a "premium" unlock service on eBay for something like $60, though in hindsight I wouldn't pay that much to unlock it again and would just use on FP as it will work out of the box with a FreedomPop AT&T SIM if you aren't using legacy AT&T. FYI, I tried two "semi-premium" unlock sellers first and both said the unlock failed.

AT&T will not unlock these anymore. But it's a good deal if you're already on AT&T - just move your existing SIM to this phone. However, once you start using the phone with your AT&T postpaid SIM, within a couple hours it will quit working due to a security issue. You then have to call customer service and prove via emailing your purchase receipt that the phone isn't stolen. There's a short process they tell you to do, then all is well after that. So keep your receipt!
