Summary: I dropped and broke my first edition of this phone, and it would no longer hold its battery. I deliberately ordered an identical phone. My service is Tracfone, and I have been very happy with it. You can get on the Internet with this phone, and I have, but you probably would rather use a different device. I have a Blackberry Playbook and a regular computer. This phone also accepts voice commands, and that feature works fine.
Summary: I'm an old guy who keeps a cell phone in his vehicle to use for emergencies. This phone goes forever without charging (I keep it off in the vehicle). I like the flip phone so I don't butt-dial with it. To me it's plenty modern and amazing. I've had it for over a year with no problems.
Summary: Great reception (alleged that Verizon is the carrier). Good volume control. Great menu. Great battery life. Perfect size. Button size is just right. Can't beat the price. If you want a good cell phone and don't want the hassle or expense of a smart phone, do this! Tip: Get a card for a year's worth of time for about $100.
Great service from Amazon and Tracfone but poor phone manufacture.

Summary: Amazon delivery was great, as usual. The phone is exactly what I wanted and Tracfone was easy to use and activate. However, the back (battery cover) would not fit the phone as the small tabs on the back do not line up with the tab-receivers on the phone. No way to use this phone as it is. To bad because it is a great flip-phone. Had to return it and upgrade to an LG840 from Amazon.
All I needed was a simple PHONE. This one saves you money!

Summary: I have had this phone for one year now and have been very pleased with the performance. It does just what I need it to do. I just needed a phone that was simple and affordable with NO CONTRACTS!! This has worked like a charm. I rarely have to recharge it except maybe twice a month. Ease in getting minutes when I need them and the "double minutes" is a great addition that also saves me money. Love my little phone.
Yep! I should have listened -- the battery cover won't stay on the phone I just purchased.

Summary: The TracFone customer service rep said I should take the phone to a retailer to see if they have a cover that will fit. She said she couldn't help me. Stuck the phone on the charger, inserted the battery. The ding dang cover won't stay on!!!!!!!
