Summary: I originally bought this phone at Target on sale, it took me a little while to get used to, but i never had any problems with it until i dropped it in a parking lot and the back wouldnt go back on. I decided to try a phone with a touch screen and immediately regretted it.
Summary: This phone is a piece of junk! It won't let me make a call without unlocking it. For some reason if I bump it while it is in my pocket it goes to browser without unlocking it. I don't ever use browser, but by it having a mind of its own it ends up costing me a lot of minutes.
Summary: I love this phone !!! Except for one thing...like some other reviewers have said it does have the tendancy to connect to the internet and waste valuable time. I just set it to the 5 sec lock mode and makes sure it locks before I put it in my pocket. Other that that..
Best Choice for a Non-Touch Screen Phone with Easy Email Access!

Summary: Personally I feel this is the best buy for a mobile device with Email, Txt, MP3 & Camera features. Very good reception and Sound Quality. The Tracfone Website has dropped the price to $9.99 with Triple minutes (just bought another two of those).
Summary: I purchased the LG 530G as it was a good-looking phone which worked as promised. But months later, I had my first problem with it. Although the phone could still send text messages it was now unable to receive same.
Summary: Very happy I purchased this phone! I didn't want a smart phone but still wanted a keyboard on my phone. This was a very good choice! The keyboard takes some getting used to if you've never had this style before but once you get used to it it is very easy on your hands.
Summary: Very good phone for very little money. The camera works okay. I have been able to take pictures of labels on packages, as long as the text was not too small. I tried to take a photo of ingredients on a bottle of supplements, and the text was readable, albeit fuzzy.
Summary: I cannot use it. I am blocked by a "unlock keypad" message no matter what I do. I couldn't even get tracfone to tell me what the new telephone number was. While recharging it the camera came on and I fumbled around and found the number. I called it from my landline and the phone rang.
