Excerpt: The Nokia 2126i tracfone is a perfect little phone if you have little use for a cell phone. You can buy minutes instead of having to sign a contract. It doesn't have all those extras which can be wonderful, but if you don't use them, why have them. This tracfone is great if you just want to make the occasional call or keep in your car for emergency purposes. The display is large enough to easily read.
Excerpt: I love my Tracfone. It's easy and I'm not bound to a contract. When I need minutes I can get them. I don't have to limit myself to calling people after nine o'clock. My calls are not limited to my friends. Sometimes you may have to call a doctor's office or the landlord and that can't wait untll after nine.
Excerpt: Hi there. My name is Tina. I am 32 and live in the USA. I am writing my review on the Nokia 2126, which I purchased from iwireless. It is an ok phone, but it costs alot to keep it up. I purchased the Mega Talk plan, which allows you to use the phone in your state, and some areas that are around your state. Anyway, it's ok as far as that. I just wouldn't consider buying extra talk time to call outside the state you live in because it is very expensive.
Excerpt: This is a prepaid phone that I got because I get food stamps...I get 68 FREE mins a month and they also gave me the phone FREE too...I live out in the country so the first phone they sent me wouldn't get any service out here so they upgraded my phone for me and I get 2 bars and its crystal clear...
Summary: Bought as parts for 2128i. LCD keys case etc. are the same as 2128i. Love the low signal pickup of the 2128i, so want to keep mine going as long as possible. Parts are getting hard to find and are not cheap.
Summary: If you need to make a call, and if it is at all possible to get through, this phone will get through. It does nothing fancy. But as a phone, it works better than any other. If everyone had this phone, there would be no dropped calls, and nobody would ever say "can you here me now? or "are you still there?. It works where other phones don't.
Summary: I purchased this phone because it is the only one that works when I go to the Adirondack Mountains. I have tried other brands but they don't seem to be able to pick up the signal. I go quite frequently, and I need to be available.
Summary: I love this small and simple phone, found it is the only model that will get service in the mountains around us so purchased 2 more for my logging boys. They will keep their trendy phones to use in the valley, but are impressed with the service areas they can get with the same cell plan as their fancy cell phone models.
Summary: We live behind a ridge from town and this is one of the few phones that will work here. We have tried several phones with SIM cards and not one of them works here. The 2126i is CDMA and it does the job. We live in a basement with 8" thick concrete walls and both the 2126 and 2126i work well.
