Summary: I bought this as a gift so I can't review performance, but I thought it was a great buy. I've been a Tracfone customer for a long time and a friend needed something better than the phone she had. She didn't need a million bells and whistles but she did need an easy and inexpensive way to load time and this phone came with double minutes for life.
Summary: I have used this phone since early 2012. It works well as a basic phone and is a good deal for people who use the phone sparingly, but anyone buying this should know that it pocket dials 911 far too easily, with the keypad locked, before putting it in their pocket. As a result, I hope to switch to a Tracfone that doesn't have number keys on the outside. It would probably be fine if you keep it in the provided case, but that was bulky enough to get in the way for me.
Summary: Granted, I just bought this phone yesterday so have not had a lot of time to explore all of the menus, but there seems to be no way to manually edit the "home" time on the phone. I can add extra time zones, but cannot find a way to edit the main time settings. Perhaps the phone hardware is programmed for "old Daylight Savings Time standard". [Didn't the US extend DST by a few weeks one way or the other in the last few years?
Summary: Phone arrived on time. MSRP was $9.20 on front of package; I paid 24.99, not including shipping. All discount coupons expired by 1/31/2011. Did not realize this phone had no camera. I used the battery in my old TracFone and will discard this new one.
Summary: A good little phone but some of the things they don't tell you on the outside of the package are that it can't call cell phones in 80 cases out of the 100 international numbers given. Therefore you can't text them either. We are in Florida and live in the UK and bought the phone at walmart so it's about as much use as a chocolate tea pot for ringing home as UK is not one of the mobile numbers available. It's called progress!
Summary: I now am stuck with this phone and it is an ok phone, not the best phone but an ok one. My sister had bought the phone because she was jelous that i had a phone and she didnt. So after a while she didnt revieve any calls and didnt use it. When my lg420g broke i decided to buy her phone from her. So far the phone is ok, sound isnt the best and you cant personalize the wallpaper. But the phone does get reception where my parents phone cant.
Summary: Item purchased from Amazon My Samsung phone was truly more than I expected. With my age it's just the ideal way to go if I have an emergency. I don't need an expensive phone for my needs. This is used just for emergencies, in the car or just around town. An ideal gift for a senior cicitzen in her early 89's. Thanks amazon.
Summary: Have been using a Tracfone for 10 years and have been happy with the pricing, considering I hardly ever use it. I just need one for emergencies while traveling. Coverage can be spotty in small towns. It had been a pain to add minutes to maintain my account. Every 90 days I had to call them, wait on hold, go through a bunch of serial numbers, etc., so I got this new Samsung Tracfone bonus pack the other day.
