This phone isn't worth the price. There are too many flaws and malfunctions.

Summary: I bought this phone on sale for 10 dollars. I am so glad I didn't pay more for it because, there are so many flaws to this phone that, it shouldn't even be worth 50 dollars. Let me start off with talking about the phone and then the problems I had with the service.
some of which are nice, some of which are very annoying

Summary: While it's similar to the earlier LG 500 version, it is not the same. It has some upgraded features, some of which are nice, some of which are very annoying. It will take some getting use to, so as of right now, I prefer my older phone.
Summary: I gave this 5 stars for it's sheer durability. I don't text or call out on my cell a lot, so double minutes for life is a great deal for me, but I' moving on to a smartphone from tracfone with triple minutes for life, and that'll be even better. The LG501C for me has been phenomenal.
It's and OK Phone, if you need just a basic phone without a Sim Card

Summary: The one thing I really don't like about this phone is that you are limited to 160 characters per text. It deducts .30 mins from you time when you text 160 characters or less. I bet you didn't realize that 160 characters if @ 2 1/2 sentences....not a lot of verbage.
Summary: I've had my Tracfone LG 501C for a year now and this one is the best one I've ever had! Great reception most everywhere. The text messaging has always worked everywhere! Camera takes excellent pictures! Love mine! Excellent buy and choice!
Summary: This is a CDMA phone. It uses the Verizon network. I am in rural Iowa ATT Sprint claim to get a signal here but they do not. Verizon has the best coverage for my area. If you want a good signal in rural areas then this is the phone for you.
Summary: Purchased for our jr. high daughter so she could keep in touch with us. I see know way to get voice, text and web access cheaper ... must admit she rarely uses it ... but that is fine when we are not spending much for it.
