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: Purchased these phones to replace my existing phones because I can't use my existing phones in my home due to no signal. currently I must go approx. 1/2 mile from my home to get signal to use my existing phones A friend was at mt home and could send and recieve calls from this location with her Samsung SGH T105 G. So I purchased the Samsung GGH T105 G and now I do not have to leave my home to send or recieve calls. Good Reception form. this phone.
Excerpt: This phone has frequently been an interim, in-between phone. Very low price and as long as you don't talk or text a lot it's very cheap. The buttons are kinda small, but then again my fingers are kinda large.
Excerpt: Not a phone for pocket carry. It will call 911 when the keypad is locked and you will not notice until the operator calls you back "I received a 911 call from this phone, is every thing alright?"....... Yes every thing is fine just my phone is feeling paranoid is all.
accept for pocket dialing 911 all of the time a good cheap phone

Excerpt: in the few months i have had it's pocket dialed 911 6 times at least, all with the ohne supposedly locked. what i have found is while locked if the combinations "08", "000" "999"and of course "911"it will bring up a screen that says emergency call. with buts to confirm or cancel.
Excerpt: I got this phone as a cheap cell phone for when i go camping, i go camping a lot and i always drop my good at&t phone in water or i lose it, i got this phone as a cheap cell that i could use for this purpose, i droped it in water at least 2 times and it still works like the same day i opened it. if you are looking for a basic great! cell phone this is the one for you.
Excerpt: keeps calling emergence number without my knowing about it. so far has called 14 times ... while the phone is locked in pocket or pouch that it comes with . called trac phone mulitpul times about it, they say its not possible to call-out while the phone is locked. this is not true. i called a number with three 9's on the phone when locked and it dialed out... I think this phone should be recalled and pulled of the shelf!!
Pros: simple, nice looking
Cons: it may dial out when Locked, not a loud phone
