Summary: This is my 4th Tracfone. Very happy with this purchase. All of the g phones I had had spotty reception in my area. This phone works on Verizon towers so the reception is 10x better. No more dropped calls. I even took this to the beach on the North Shore of Long Island and it worked perfectly. The set up was easy. I used Tracfone website to change phone number from old phone to new. I did have to call Tracfone to transfer my minutes(approx. 2,000) but that was easy.
Summary: I've had this phone for six weeks, this is what I've found so far, The good, phone looks like new w/new battery in sealed package, everything works as described, great sound quailty even on mp3 player, I like the bigger display but can't find a way to look at photos on full screen, it has gps you can set for 911 emergency calls only if you like, i have bigger hands and still use the slide out keyboard without many problems.
Summary: only thing that annoys me is that there is a 160 character limit and you can not have multiple pages of text. as long as you texts are short you will be fine but if you like typing a short story then you will have to send it in chunks.
