Summary: This refurbished phone works great for me, with a touch screen and QWERTY keypad for texting. It came packaged like new, with battery, phone back, charger and phone all separately wrapped in the box and the serial number and brochure on how to activate.
Summary: I bought this phone online for 2 reasons. First, had I bought through TracFone, it would have cost more and, second, they would have sent a GSM model. I needed a CDMI, which works on US Cellular towers where I travel In rural Missouri because only phones working on US Cellular get a signal.
Summary: Unbelievable phone for the money. Very responsive touch screen. Removable Micro SDCard a big plus. Bluetooth pairs with my car audio instantly. Couldn't be better. Ended up buying a second one just to have as a spare!
Summary: I purchased a new LG-505C from the Tracfone website. It arrived two days later via FedEx. I don't text very often, and I call even less, so I rarely use a cell phone. But when I do, I expect it to work.
Summary: This is the best phone I have ever owned, and for the price, the least I have ever paid for a phone. It was easy to activate and migrate my number to and is crystal clear when making a phone call. It isn't a smart phone but then I didn't want one.
Summary: This is my daughters college phone. She loves the texting pad. She said she appears to get the same reception as all the other students with their phones. There are places where their phones do and don't come in. The charge is not all that great.
Summary: i picked up this phone here. one thing i would advise to new users of tracfone is that it is MUCH easier to activate your phone via the tracfone website as opposed to trying to activate over the phone.
