Excerpt: When we recently discovered that our landline phone jack got messed up because of a mean summer storm and that it would cost $75.00 per hour for the phone technician to step in our house and check it out...I immediately sought out a less expensive way to keep in touch with friends and relatives. I already knew of family members that had gotten rid of their landlines in exchange for cell phones some time ago.
Excerpt: So I finally conceded to our children that it might be a very good thing to get a cell phone. Seeing that they were the ones trying to do the convincing, I thought it right that they get the phone for us as well. Seeing that I don't really harbor any interest in the things anyway. So they got us this phone that is apparently designed for the elderly. I suspect this is because of the big buttons, the voice enhancement, and the easy menu. Pretty simple and basic.
Excerpt: Well there is no doubt at all that Tracfone overall is a big money saver. High quality flip phone is the way to go. It is offered at a very affordable price and I have zero complaints. The coverage is coast to coast (still haven't come across a dropped call) which works out great when I travel often to visit my family in a different state.
Excerpt: Tracfone is the best choice for low-cost cell service. Tired of paying $40+ for a basic cell phone plan? With Tracfone you can own a phone for as little as $7 a month. Not very many minutes but if you use the cell seldom then why shell out 50 bucks for a basic contract? I just could not justify the cost of our contract cell phones any more and with the Tracfones we got we are saving at least $60 a month. A lot of money over the normal contract period of two years.
Excerpt: Well, I received this phone for Christmas from my son, and was so excited to be trying something new. I've had a contract cellphone for a couple of years now, but for me the bill that accompanied it, made it something I was apprehensive about using! While this phone has fewer of the features than my previous phone, I never used most of the features anyway, so this is more than adequate for talking and texting.
Excerpt: I was so impressed with our savings on Tracfone's Family Value Plan, I decided to try my folks on the Senior Value plan. The Samsung T155G is the phone they got and I was quite surprised with how sturdy it is for such a cheap phone ($15). They've had no problems finding their way around the phone's functions, it's hearing aid compatible and the screen and numbers are large and bright enough for easy viewing.
Excerpt: About four months ago, I bought this phone for my mother, and switched her to Tracfone's SVC-their senior plan. This move, surprisingly enough, had nothing to do with financial motives! She could probably afford an iphone and an expensive plan to go with it, without breaking too much of a sweat. Well, to cut a long story slightly shorter, my mother(just 67 yrs old) drives me crazy when it comes to cell phones.
Excerpt: Well after struggling for a few days to actually get the facts, and to make sense of tracfone's Senior value cellphone, I can now say, a month later that I haven't been disappointed. The phone works well for me being a senior, and the plan is suited well for my use. But my goodness, I was confused by the advertizing: On the adverts for the SVC, they promote a plan that only costs $7 a month. I walk into Kmart, and I'm not only confronted by the lack of any said $7 plan.
Excerpt: I recently purchased a motorola Tracfone flip cell phone. It is truly awesome. Cost of the phone was under $20. Everytime I purchase minutes I receive double minutes for the life of the phone. The phone takes pictures (and it takes beautiful high quality pictures!) You can e-mail with the phone and send text messages. It was one heck of a bargain and I didn't have to pay a lot of money like some of these phones that are sold with very expensive monthly plans.
Excerpt: Tracfone is a very wonderful and low cost cell phone service. I have been using tracfone for about 2 years now. I have the motorola W370. It is an okay phone. It is my original phone, my first one that I got. Some good things about it are: It is stylish, it looks like the motokrazr i think. it is easy to use, has a good screen and reception. Whenever my mom's phone is out of range, mine always works.
