Excerpt: This tracfone is a great pick up. I have used tracfone for quite some time and think that the company is very helpful. Tracfone actually gives its customers a world class deal. With this phone i get great reception alomost everywhere that i go.
Excerpt: First the CONS: If you have the Net10 version of this V-176, you will NOT have a calendar!! This is misrepresenting advertising and there should be specs for ALL versions of the V-176. Even the lNEWEST Net10 V176 phone has a calendar!
Excerpt: I owned this phone for less than one year. I purchased it with a prepaid plan and it worked okay from the start. It never worked the way that I would have liked it to. It never seemed to have service when my daughter's phones would have service and we had the same carrier just different phones.
Excerpt: I've just switched carriers because I never seemed to have any service with my previous carrier (Virgin which I loved BTW in terms of support and ease of use). This phone was as close to the one I had as I could get.
Excerpt: i've had this phone for a couple of months and its not too bad. the service is pretty good (tracfone) i get reception in most areas. pros: signal strength display games web browser speakerphone ringtones ringing/speaking volume cons: no external display no camera all in all, a pretty good phone.
Excerpt: I upgraded from a V170 to the V176 and wow this is a much nicer phone. The main upgrade feature I like is the speakerphone. I had a phone from Alltel and it had a cheap speakerphone in comparison. I have used both Net 10 and Tracfone over the last 5 years. No Difference in the service.
Excerpt: I love the phone. Before this I had a 5100 Nokia which did very little. I didn't need bells and whistled, but wanted no contract. The phone is great, I like everything, and I admit there are some things I haven't learned about it.
Excerpt: I used to have an old Nokia phone that I used in the Virginia Mountains through Cingular and was unhappy with it and it's reception. I'm an infrequent cell-phone user. I use it mostly on trips and for occasional calls to my better-half when running errands.
