and tracfone had better service, i would rate 5 stars
28 December 2014
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. if browser could be disabled, and tracfone had better service, i would rate 5 stars.
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. It has lots of features like, internet, ringtones, wallpaper, music, games and texting. My mother does not do any of those things, she just talks, but those features make it an even better value for the price.
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. You can check your email with it but it takes time. I never used the browser much as it was too slow.
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. Having the camera is a nice addition but I have hardly used that. The only issue I have had with this phone is that every 4 or 5 months the battery will not seem to stay charged very long.
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.
Summary: For my 59th birthday, my wife decided to get me a new phone! My previous/first cellular phone was about 7 years old! After two days with the LG Tracfone 440G, I'm very satisfied! My daughter set it up for me and turned up the volume of the phone and ringtone for me so I can hear incoming calls with ease. Note that I'm not experienced with all these new touch phones so a flip phone like this was great for me.
A good flip phone for those with a sight impairment

Summary: I like flip phones and this one is a pleasant surprise, it's wide has a big screen and easy to see and use buttons. It feels a bit on the flimsy side because it's made of plastic, but it's light. Has a big screen and a web browser.
Summary: I specifically asked the helpful Target employee if the phone came with a USB connection for PCs. I told him I needed to take some simple pictures and xfer to the PC. He assured me the USB was included. It isn't. So, then I tried to use the email feature to mail the pics to my PC via the internet. Each attempt failed. I called Tracfone. They were beyond useless. I wasted an hour with them.
Summary: I purchased this phone as a gift for someone. I have one already & I completely love it ! It has a lot of features that a regular free phone does not have. I like the camera feature on it a lot & the colorful screen. This phone has so many features its not funny for the price. It's a great phone. I suggest anyone that wants one of these to make sure they check with there carriers to make sure it's compatible.
Summary: The LG 440G is a good phone for the price. Wish I had checked Amazon before heading off to my local box store. Would have saved close to $10. The LG is a much better phone than my old Samsung Tracfone. Nicer display, larger keyboard, better camera, and good cellular coverage. As a Tracfone customer for about ten years, I've had no problems with the service.
