Summary: A special 'feature' in the phone allows it to dial 911 (emergency) even while the screen is locked. I believe any button can be pressed 3 times consecutively and it automatically duals 911. I have had the phone call 911 MANY times while sitting in my purse. A few days ago it even texted 911.
Summary: I buy my minutes every 3 + months. I pay an average of $11 to $16 a month for this phone. I use it carefully and sparingly. If I'm close to land line and I get a call, I call them right back from the other phone.
Summary: Bought this for my daughter because it was designed to her liking. Mp3 player was a biggie. The phone works great, very durable and volume gets pretty loud. The Tracfone aspect of this phone was the problem. It took them sending 2 replacement phones and 3 replacement SIM cards to get it working.
Summary: Lost my phone and this really put me back in business. Keyboard is small but even with my poor vision I can use it quite easily. Still have much to learn on the features but am so very happy with my purchase that I bought another identical phone for my husband. Nice little phone with good reception.
