LG Tracfone Prepaid Android with 1200 Min Texts & Data Plus Accs.
Happy Camper - 2 Fones
Very satisfied, Verizon service is better than ATT in my area. This is my first smart phone and I'm saving $500 /yr on service for 2 phones... I've had the 2 phoned for over 2 months and very pleased. We are low usage people, my wife averages about 30 minutes a month and I use about 100 a month, even if I have to buy another 1200 minutes it's still a great phone @ a great price.
Total frustration with getting help.
I caved in after watching the lady selling it on
QVC. She made it sound SO easy, and figured I could do that. I'm not savvy with cell phones, so had my 18 year old son set it up for me. He had nothing but trouble getting any sort of help, and said it sounded like it was someone in India who just didn't get it, or could give any help. He even kept saying "he was confused". My son finally gave up after working on it for a couple of days, and I am not sending it back. Very disappointed, as it sound like such a good deal, and so much less expensive than the plans I have been using. Oh well, guess it's back to a company I can rely on and trust. Sorry...I usually love the items I purchase from QVC, but this is a ;dud.
Best LG Android Smart Tracfone, We love Tracfone
***** for sure. My wife and I replace our Tracfone phone every year from QVC. We get a new phone which is an upgrade and comes with new battery. It comes with triple minutes for life. Any time and minutes left on your old phone are rolled over to the new one. Replacing our phone is about the same cost as buying a one year card. If you don't use your phone much this is great for you. You can do everything the $100-$200 phones with $40-$80+ per month contracts can do. I recomend it to everyone we know and anyone that asks. Only problem was I ordered the blue one and it says its blue, But it is Violet / purple not any blue I've seen.
Customer Service is the WORST
This is the second Tracfone product purchased from QVC. The minutes never loaded onto the phone. Getting their customer service to help was like asking God to come down to earth. AWFUL!!!!! AWFUL!!!!! AWFUL!!!!!
I will NEVER purchase another Tracfone product. And depending on how this phone performs, it may get returned.
QVC should seriously review their connection with this company.
Got this phone to use occasionally and it served its purpose. Yesterday for an unknown reason, the phone became inactive. I tried everything to correct the situation-call Tracfone, called the wireless service, called QVC and went on-line to my Tracfone account. With the calls (except QVC), could not get a human. With the internet, could not get past the airtime screen. The recording states it is a Verizon phone that has been disconnected. I know the 1200 minutes were not used, since I hardly ever put it on. When I get my credit, I may order the new LG Tracfone. I am not attached to a cell phone, so for what I need, it is a good deal, It just needs to work.
worst phone ever
if u want your phone to freeze everytime u go into an app, get this one. cant wait to get rid of tracfone and go back to sprint. waste of money and customer service is beyond bad.
QVC relying on TracFone pickers
The product is essentially a kit. Phone, case, books, charger, app access card ...
The first shipment sent everything except a working phone. The phone received had non-functioning internal speakers. No keypad sounds, no rings, no voice, no musics... Worked with my headphones but not on the phone's own speakers.
QVC shipped another kit.
The next QVC kit had everything in the first kit, but a different and older model TracFone. Smaller screen, lower rez camera, lower version of Android ...
QVC is now shipping ANOTHER kit.
We hear that the QVC team relies on the Tracfone people to assemble the kits. Sadly, it's the QVC team that's burning thru days-after-birthday on this lengthy project. Imagine living with a newly 14 year old promised his own smart phone now on the 2nd week PAST the birthday and another week still before we even try again. Sulky would be putting it mildly.
ANYHOW, QVC is doing their part for customer service but the order-selection / picker teams doing fulfillment need remedial training. A review of the actual PRODUCT rather than order services will follow, someday, I hope.
Having had a tracfone I decided to step up to the smart phone version. This phone is easy to use and was very easy to activate, port over my current number and transfer remaining minutes on the old phone to the new one which included text and data. Really having fun learning all the great things that this phone can do that the old one could not. With all the features on this phone and the low cost to keep it running are great. I love not having a contract and paying for only what I use.
Had the phone only two months. Loved the "bonus minute " deal, but never got them
Touch screen "died" before I used my carry-over minutes. Just a little too large to fit in my old phone case, which I can't do without.
I have had tracfones for over ten years and I am NEVER disappointed by them. I love this phone. Nice big screen, plenty of memory and great reception. Many people on here bash Tracfone service, but I have never had an issue. I always get an operator. They are always helpful, but rarely have EVER needed help. I activated this online, and within about one hour, my phone was active. I even ported a number from my old Tracfone.
Triple minutes, text and data are a plus. Yes, you have to get used to the new way it is metered out for an Android. One minute per text, and the data and call minutes are all separate. It is like this: 100 texts, 100 call minutes and 100 data. You can easily hook it up through wifi to save the data.
This phone is great, and for the price, how can you ask for more? I definitely like this upgrade, and love the Android apps I can use. I refuse to pay a monthly bill, and this fits in my budget perfectly.
The towers this phone uses is through Verizon. I live in a rural area and get just peachy reception. Give this phone a chance, you won't be disappointed.
When making calls or receiving the sound is fabulous, sounds like you are in the next room. This is my first smart phone so a bit of a hard learning curve, but I love it. Very easy to set up and change number.
Best Tracfone On The Market...for Now...
I have had many Tracfone's in the past 10 years and this phone by far is the best offered! My previous android phone was a ZTE and was a complete piece of garbage, it had very bad phone, internet and Wi-Fi reception and apps would constantly close out and cancel. It would always fail to load apps! It was very glitchy and sooo slow!! This LG phone has not been glitchy and has had good reception! Processor is fast enough. Not as fast as iPhone but still decent to get the job done! Very happy so far with the purchase! If you need an android this is the phone to buy!
