Summary: Very happy with the phone. It only took 2 minutes to set up and the fact that it starts with a years worth of minutes (and that adding minutes extends the date is wonderful). I bought for a senior citizen who needed something simple to use.
4 stars based on phone only, 2 stars for Tracfone service

Summary: I bought this phone in a Tracfone kit. I like the phone's features. I haven't been able to get my old phone number to transfer over from Net 10 to Tracfone, so I can't use it. Pros: If you want a phone with large keypad keys, and an on screen font size that's easier to read, this phone has it. I got my contact phone #'s into the phone, there is some help in the on-line owner's manual.
Summary: I wanted a simple cellphone - not a smartphone - with big numbers and ease of use. The Alcatel 382G Prepaid TracPhone was exactly what I wanted. It was easy to activate and came with a booklet of monthly discount codes for extra value.
Alcatel 382G Perpaid Phone With 400 Minutes and Double Minutes (Tracfone)

Summary: LOVE IT!! Love those large buttons. Glad I purchased it and best of all it came with 400 Minutes!!! and Double Minutes could not ask for any thing better, It arrived in record time and in great condition It even came priority mail!
Summary: My mother saw this model phone at a local Kroger store and wanted to buy one due to the large buttons and double minutes. The Kroger store was selling them for $29.99 plus tax but had none in stock. Kroger called the district office and was told they didn't have this model in stock. I went onto amazon and found the exact model my mother was trying to purchase for $9.99 and an addition $5.89 shipping and handling.
Summary: Perfect for a car cell phone to use in emergencies. Easy to use and love the flashlight. Speaker has acceptable but not great clarity and loudness. Tracfone may now be supplanted by the FreedomPop "Snowden Phone" in value so check that out before purchasing.
