Summary: I carry this phone with me daily. It's a decent phone. I don't particularly like it because I have to be outside to get a strong signal, I get a fair signal in the car. Less than fair at home, and no signal at work, in a store, school, or hospital. But, it is mainly for when I am out and about. Or emergency. I just hope I don't have to rely on it for an emergency at work. However. It was very inexpensive. Down right cheap. So, I guess you get what you pay for.
Summary: The phone may be nice, but beware of tracfone's "service". I have used tracfone for a couple of years for my mother's light-use phone, never requiring anything from tracfone other than additional minutes. Then came the day that I needed to activate a new phone (the old one was damaged) with the old phone number. One week and seven hours on the phone later, no service and they had to send me a new SIM card which would take another week.
