Not a smart phone, but this one does everything well

Summary: Not a smart phone, but this one does everything well, though the keyboard is extremely small. Also, the voicemail occasionally sends your old messages to you as if they just came in, and in normal course doesn't give you verbal dates and times.
Summary: This is a cheap alternative to a smart phone. You get free months (2 I think) and (600 minutes) making this phone free. I like the keyboard for texts. The phone is extremely durable, and picks of cell signals well, even on top of pikes peak. The phone battery lasts several days.
Summary: I just bought two of these and tried to activate NET10 service to use the Verizon CDMA network. I turned on the phone and see that it says a service from Tracfone. I read these reviews and do not recall anyone mentioning this. I absolutely do not want Tracfone.
Be careful you find out what cell phone companies are active in your area prior to buying a cell phone on line.

Summary: My bad. I ordered this lovely phone because I needed a Net10 phone. It fits nicely into the palm of my hand and the keypad is exactly what I wanted. HOWEVER, buyers beware. Make sure when you get a phone that it will work with the towers in your area.
Summary: Unfortunately, I lost this phone on my way to a nursing refresher course. All day I longed for this phone. I missed it very much. When I went out of town, I never found it, I never traced it and got it back.
Summary: Pleased with the phone. Setting it up with Net 10 was a nightmare. I got it as a backup phone - like the ability to control monthly rate - and like the teeny tiny keyboard for texting. It runs off Verizon towers and gets a strong signal and good sound quality.
Summary: Works great in New Hampshire. It uses the US Cellular towers (CDMA). Would recommend! Just as a hint: the "C" in R355C stands for CDMA which is what Verizon and US Cellular uses. ATT uses GSM if the phone ends in "G" then it won't be compatible with CDMA towers (Verizon and US Cellular)
