Tracfone lied it does not work on Verizon cell towers
5 April 2012
Summary: The tracfone is does not work I spent 4 hours with tracfone the only cell tower my area is CDMA which is verizon and tracfone states on its website that this cell phone will work in my zipcode weel they lied it does not work and they can't get it to work
Excerpt: Got work in Montana, went out there, and my Net10 LG 620G GSM (T-Mobile sim) would not pick up a signal anywhere. Since the cell phone was absolutely critical to my work, I was beginning to feel like this trip would be a disaster. The local store said only Verizon worked in that area and they had 1 Net10 LG 100C in stock. Bought it, activated it and in less than 10 minutes I had a working cell phone.
First you need to find out which phones will work in your area.

Summary: First you need to go to Tracfone.com and enter your zip code and then it will tell you which phones will work in your area. I only had 3 models to choose from. I got the LG 100C which was the most basic of the 3 since our main reason to use is in case of car trouble or to leave a simple message.It is a nice small size for carrying in purse or pocket and nice looking too. I wish it had a camera and was black instead of silver but otherwise it is fine.
Summary: Wanted a fairly small basic cell phone with easy to use controls and decent sized screen in a prepaid phone. This seemed to fit the bill. My hands are fairly large, so the size is good. I wish it had more features, but I do prefer simple cell phones,and it was only $0.99! What a bargain!
Excerpt: it is really fun to use for texting it is a blast, for calling there is no better reseption!!!! i love this phone already!!!! it is a great phone and i recomend it for anyone that wants an in expensive phone!!
Good entry level text/talk phone. Not good on battery, intuitiveness of use

Excerpt: If you had the Nokia 1100 on Tracfone, and you're transitioning into ST, this is probably the closest version over here. I used to have a Nokia 1100 from Tracfone, and I wish they offered that on Straightalk, being that it's the same parent company. As other posters explained, the battery life is disappointing. I'm charging at least once every 2 days, which is high-maintenance for a phone this basic.
Excerpt: I need a phone for talking and texting only. Firstly I chose this phone because it was a tracfone (I need the coverage), and had double minutes to go with that. Secondly, it's a small tidy little phone, that appeals to my put-it-in-the-pocket-and-run way of life. Thirdly, it was extremely cheap, which appealed to my pay-as-little-as-possible mentality. The phone's buttons are big, and texting is easy. That goes for navigating through the menu as well.
Excerpt: This is one of my older phones. As a phone collector i have seen and used numerous phones. This phone is one of the phones i like best. The reason i like this phone so much could have something to do with the tracfone service which this phone operates on which is so amazing. I reccomend this phone with all of my heart.
