good basic phone

lightfoot44 has owned it for less than 3 months before publishing this review

The sound quality on this phone is very good. Visuals are poor....not a sharp enough pic on the screen. The screen is very small also, much smaller than alot of other tracfones. If all you need is a basic phone for talk and text this one is good. If you like internet capability, or camera capability....this phone won't cut it for you. Texting takes some practice....and research to figure out how to change between Capital letters and lower case. USE THE ZERO button!!!! The manual doesn't tell you how to do this....The phone seems very durable, and well made, but I think it is dated in both design and function. In fact, Tracfone doesn't sell this model any longer.

Dependable basic phone

The_Mechanic has owned it for more than one year before publishing this review

If you need a good, dependable phone for talk and SMS, this is your best bet. The phone is inexpensive and gets service in many places contract carriers phones do not. I have had this phone for about 3 years now and it has never failed me.

good phone

This is a good phone.  With this phone expect exceptional dialing capability and wireless signal everywhere that you go.  Tracfone is a top provider and all of their phones seem to be on the upper echelon.  I recommend this phone for all ages and both males and females.
