Summary: this is an ok phone, got it for my 93 year old mom for emergency use. big buttons simple phone a must for her. downside, can not disable browser if my mom accidentally pushes browser button she can use up all minutes before she realizes whats going on.
Summary: I loved my elderly Nokia tracfone, but you can't buy them anymore, so I got the LG. As other reviewers have noted, call and message receiving are very erratic. It took three weeks (you read this right!) for me to get a message from my mother.
Summary: I purchased this phone for my mother. Its easy to use and has double minutes. Its lightweight and fits in your pocket or a purse. If you only need a cell phone to make phone calls and nothing else, this is a great buy.
I was planning to getting smart phone and so wasn't to bummed when it drowned

Summary: This phone worked well until it met a wave on the Pacific Ocean while I was kayaking with my son. It was not the phone's fault and I did not expect it to survive the event. I just happen to have had it with me instead of leaving it in the car. The phone's speaker it tinny and sometimes hard to hear.
Great for Basic Phone calls only, at the lowest possible cost

Summary: I purchased this phone at 2 different times for relatives for basic inexpensive phone and calls including the ability to call nationwide and internationally for the same one minute per unit. It works well for these types of calls.
Summary: First, let me start by saying that I have been a loyal LG user for about 7 years. My first phone was a 200C that served me well for 3 years until I dropped it one time too many. As I do not need all the bells and whistles of a high-end phone, the 200C met my needs and never let me down, so I bought...
Summary: I use this phone through Net10 (owned by Tracfone, I believe) because I don't use a cell phone much and liked having a prepaid. My old phone finally broke, and I was so excited to "upgrade" to a better flip phone.
Summary: All I need is a basic phone to carry around just in case I need a make a call here or there and also so when my wife and I go shopping in separate stores, we can keep in touch when one of us is done. This phone does the job and then some.
Summary: I only use cell phones for emergencies and this is the second one of these I have bought (the first one met it's demise in the washing machine). It's not good for surfing the net but I use my PC for that. Good price - good quality - love the double minutes too.
