Summary: Perfect for me. I don't need anything fancy. I use it mostly for travel. In case you have problems on the road you have a way of calling for help. Also, you never know when you might need to dial 911.
Doesn't matter that much to me because at that low cost I consider a refurbished unit still a good deal.

Summary: Can not be used as a replacement phone with verizon regular contract if you just open the box and want to use it. Verizon says that this phone must be used for 3 months before I can use it under regular contract.
it appears to be an average flip phone in perfect condition (and I bought the refurbished one)

Summary: WARNING! This phone can only be used with prepaid Verizon plans and CANNOT be used to replace a contract phone unless you first activate it as a prepaid and use it for 6 months. Other than that, it appears to be an average flip phone in perfect condition (and I bought the refurbished one). Unfortunately, I cannot speak to quality of service, reception, etc. since I was unable to activate the device and use it.
