Summary: I wish it was more clearly explained that this phone CAN NOT be added to a regular plan. Sure, I saw that it was setup for pay-as-you-go but I didn't see any warning that it was un-activateable for traditional use.
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: *I got what I wanted... It is an inexpensive basic phone that serves my needs..I don't text, nor will I use all the special features included in this unit...A label on the sealed package indicated it was refurbished, but the suppliers item description in the Amazon listing said it was new...Doesn't matter that much to me because at that low cost I consider a refurbished unit still a good deal...
