Summary: Examined available phones that work with TracFone, and this one seemed like the best deal for the money. It was smaller and more comfortable than similar LG models. Unfortunately, after spending time trying to set up service, I had to spend 45 minutes on the phone with TracFone to solve an error. Eventually, tech support said this phone would not accept updates, and they would have to send a replacement.
Summary: I bought this phone because my other phone don,t work everywhere I go. I am having no trouble with this new phone. I would recommend this phone to other people, because it is small and fits right in your pocket.
Summary: Not much volume control. Needs more for old ears. Nice sized flip phone (small) with few unneeded/unwanted features. NOT good camera function. You can only take a picture then you can only get it out of your phone by sending it as an email (no memory card to trans to a computer). No movie function. Too easy to enter the phone browser and eat up airtime. This is a fine phone to carry and make/get calls. You can ignore messages and text. I'm happy with it.
Samsung out performs LG at my location on Tracfone
2 April 2014
Summary: Purchased for my daughter to use on Tracfone. They only offer LG flip phones now and LG's don't work from my home while Sansung phones work fine. I used to have one of each and while my Sandy flooded home was being repaired these were my only phone connection for 5 months. the LG only allowed emergency calls while the Samsung worked fine. That's why we selected this identical Samsung phone to replace her broken Motorola and didn't consider an LG.
Summary: This phone is very compact, easy to use, and I love the double minutes feature from Tracfone. Very good deal. Not fancy, but great for someone who needs to be available for contact by family mostly.
Summary: for if you are like me a person that only uses your phone for basic uses such as simply calls then this is the phone for you because it has no contract and you can buy a airtime card at your supermarket or drugstore without any hassle of a monthly bill.
