    So, i purchased a go phone from walmart called a Samsung Galaxy Go Prime, model number SM-G530A.
    I can't find diddley online about the "Go" prime, and every time I put in the model number in google, pages for the Grand Prime pop up. My phone was fairly cheap, at just under $100, so it's cheaper than the Grand Prime Wal-Mart offers, which is $150.
    Basically, I'm looking for a good phone case and screen protector, but can't find anything specifically for the Go prime. Is it basically just a cheaper grand prime? And as far as accessories, would I just search for things for the Grand Prime?
    Lastly, if it is a cheap version of the Grand Prime, what are the differences between the two? I used to have a Galaxy S4 when they first came out and paid around $4-500 for it, I can't remember exactly. Honestly, this sub $100 phone seems to be doing almost everything my old expensive phone did, so what's the deal?

    My guess would be that it's a Grand Prime just rebranded for Walmart

    I'm about 99% sure that's what it is at this point. I just wanted to make sure what it is before I go ordering things for it

    Not sure what else it could be. The SM-G530 is definitely a Grand Prime and the last letter usually just denotes the carrier

    samsung calls it a Grand Prime. Everything I have found its the same as a Cricket Phone. You're right, there is diddly squat on this phone, but that's because its a AT&T exclusive. There are other phones with the same number but they are ,Verizon,Net10, etc. All just a bit different to make it impossible to do anything with . For a case or ? look on ebay , I ordered a case the other day and its for this number of phone. just put in search, ATT Go Phone or Samsung SM-G530A and see whats there.
