  • Excerpt: If talking, and texting, without dropping calls is most important to you (as I'm a trucker). And you wouldn't mind a camera, then this is a good phone to purchase. Yes, the phone has other features; bluetooth, nice sound, web browser, and all the usuals - but to be quite honest, these are the...

Not that bad of a phone

  • Excerpt: Ok so a friend got this to replace her t101g First of all I believe this is tracfones first slider. It is pretty solid. Now this model looks a little different or it might not be but I think that hers has music controls on the front, everything else is the same.

290C Difficult and customer service terrible

Ironman1331, Phone Scoop
31 January 2010
  • Excerpt: This LG 290C cell phone w/ pre-paid Tracfone service does the basics. The "manual" thatcomes with it is terrible so it is difficult to learn how to do anything on this phone. ALL the information I found was online. So far I cannot download photos to a PC or anything else.

  • Excerpt: To start with, for some reason,the signal here at home really sucks. I don't know if it's an issue that the carrier could resolve, or if it's something to do with the house's wiring, etc. Supposedly, my niece, who had the same type of phone I have now had better reception than I do.

best CMDA Tracfone

Moonlight on the Water, Phone Scoop
18 December 2009
  • Excerpt: Granted, this is my first cellphone. And I'm easily entertained. Regardless, I think this is truly a wonderful phone, and the top-of-the-line CMDA phone at Tracfone. This phone has a 1.3 megapixel camera with zoom, brightness adjustment, night mode, self-timer, and some fun effects.

LG 290C

12 December 2009
  • Excerpt: I have the LG 290C with Tracfone, I am unable to send pictures nor can I access the Browser, I have contacted Customer Service and they issued at ticket but still no fix. Over all I like the phone and probably do not need to access the browser anyway.
