Excerpt: This phone was garbage and I will say this right off that bat that this phone really sucks and was such a hassle to use. The first thing I have bad too say about this piece of crap is that the phone worked nowhere and I literally mean it. This phone barely got me any reception in the whole state of Massachusetts and when it actually did work I could barely hear the other person on the other line.
Excerpt: I just purchased this phone and after a couple of hours with a Net10 "Customer Service Rep" we finally got the number from our old Net10 phone transfered. The instruction manual that came with it does not advise how to set the time and date, that should be so simple that you shouldn't need any instructions but this particular phone has some ways about it. We will see, the jury is still out.
Pros: Clear reception, Easy to use keys., Small and light weight., Large numbers for those of us who are vision challenged.
Excerpt: very good phone, basic clamshell, but has a lot of smart functions, who needs a phone for $299,when you can get this phone for 20 bucks with the same functions. and by the way this phone has a world clock which shows eastern europe. " Warsaw,Prague, Budapest, Berlin, "ect". also has a web browser, i in't buying a phone for 180-300, just so i could go on the web, i can browse with this one.
Excerpt: The Samsung SGH-t201g is a phone offered by Net10. The t201g has the same OS as Tracfone's SGH-t301g minus a few features. For example there are no games on the t201, and you are not able to change the background color like you can on the t301g. Overall the t201g is a decent phone call quality is great. Battery life lasts for a good while. In all the t201 is a decent phone while it does not have some features like the t301.
Excerpt: I can't easily compare this phone with many other phones because I'm sort of new in the cell phone neighborhood. But I'll rate it for how it suits my needs:
I bought it for $39.95 with Net10 as the service provider, but when considering that it included 300 minutes @ 10 cents per minute in the purchase, the phone was $9.95.
My biggest complaint is the advertised hands free speaker. Unless I still haven't figured out how to use it, I can't easily call it that.
