Well, I must start by saying that it took many months of contemplating the change from Sprint to Tracfone before I finally made the leap. The phone I had been using was the Samsung Galaxy 2. My problem was not with the phone but with the cost of the service. I must say that I have been very pleased with this LG Tracfone. It functions very similarly to the Samsung Galaxy 2, so learning to use it was very easy. My husband handled all the set-up for the phone and he did not encounter any difficulties at all. No problem getting the minutes that came with the phone activated. No problem getting contacts transferred from the Samsung to the LG.
The screen is vibrant. The keypad for dialing is large enough for me to see without my 2.0 reading glasses. And...we are saving $60/mo. by dropping my phone from the Sprint plan.
Obviously a pay as you go phone is not for everyone. I have never been a heavy cell phone user. And I am not at all in love with texting. However, I will say I have found the typing pad to be more accurate than most of the phones I have used in the past.
Overall, very happy with this purchase. Anticipating the minutes that came with the phone to last me about 9 months. Can't beat that!
I had regular tracfones previously & liked them. But, this android is complex. I have a hard time entering address book, getting my calling list & just everything in general. I guess it's good for the young. But an older generation don't need this. Not only that, but, I purchased the regular tracfone when it was a TSV, & they wouldn't transfer my android minutes to the regular tracfone, so I had to return it. What a bummer because I have several thousand minutes to transfer... Not fair...... Things should be simpler in our golden years, but they just get more difficult. So, if you are in your golden years be careful what you purchase. Don't get me wrong-- I am not computer illiterate. I love my computer & use it for many things & even doing financial spreadsheets, fliers & other projects. But, this android is not what I need or want. Buyer beware....

I bought this phone when it was the deal of the day. Thought I was getting a good deal. Did not use it right away since I had another phone. Finally the day came when it needed to be my only phone. I was on the phone for 5 days with Customer Service at TracFone trying to get my number transferred and trying to get the phone to work. Of course all the while, my minutes were being eaten up while I was put on hold and put on hold and put on hold with TracFone customer service. That is how they make their money. They put you on hold constantly so that your minutes get eaten up and you have to buy more. TracFone customer service stinks. I think QVC should drop this vendor from their airways. It is giving them a bad name.

If you talk and text allot on your cell, I don't recommend Tracfones. By the time you purchase more time, you can end up paying close to $100 or more per month . Better to get a cell with unlimited talk, text and data...
I didn't return the phone, still have some time on it, will keep it for emergency until it expires, and will not reload minutes.
I don't like to return items to QVC, they are awesome!
Overall good phone
I bought this phone after only two months of having the Galaxy Centura, the difference is unbelievable. This is by far the superior phone. Love the slightly larger screen, and the picture quality is pretty decent for a tracfone. I did however have to drop one star for the battery life. I have to charge it at least once daily. More if I am doing a lot with it. But after the numerous problems I encountered in the two months I had the Centura, I will happily take having to charge it more often.
Ok to be fair I read the other reviews about tracphone before writing this review. I like the deal. The phone has major issues. 1. No matter how much you swipe, the phone is not responsive. So, you basically lose all of your calls. 2. Several months after buying the phone will not stay charged. I have to charge it 3-4 times a day! Crazy! 3. While the phone is not responsive to calls it is super sensitive at other times. For instance I will try to access my voicemail and if my cheeck touches the screen it just starts to dial numbers.
The text feature works fine....I am not sure if this is an LG phone issue or a tracphone issue. Either way it seems that they should have worked out the kinks before selling a phone that has so many flaws.
I love tracfones.
I'm seeing that the main complaint is with customer service which can be a little shoddy with tracfone if you're not used to the way their system works . But people who aren't used to tracfones may experience frustration. Be patient. Adding minutes takes some time. Look up how to's so you know what to expect. And keep track of remaining balances online.
My sisters pay hundreds every month for their smartphones and I only pay about 29.99 ever two or three months if I don't text like a maniac. And I get the same services. I love tracfone and always suggest it to people who are complaining about paying tons of money for the same things I get for less.
Worst purchase ever
This is the worst product ever purchased from QVC. I have spent four days and several
hours trying to add minutes and number from old phone. I finally got phone activated and got the 1200 minutes added but they lost all the minutes I had left on the old phone.
They were supposed to transfer them to the new phone with my old number. Very disappointed with the service.
I Love Tracfones!
I've used Tracfones for years and have never had a problem with any kind of customer service, buying minutes online, activating or reactivating phone or anything else. I can always google the model and get information on something I don't understand. Love having no bill every month.
Love, Love, Love ! Great Phone!
This phone is wonderful! I had it in 3 days, thanks to QVC, and had very little trouble transferring my number, getting it activated, transferring my minutes, and adding the 1200 minutes, texts, and data. Read instructions carefully, and be patient! I also like the extra case for it. I'm having so much fun playing with it, and still discovering all of the features. The camera is nice and was happy it has a flash. The sound is great! So very happy with my tracfone, and QVC!
I love this phone
I have had several Tracfones over the past few years and they have always been dependable. But this one is by far the best one I have ever had. I especially like the larger screen. It does all the things my IPhone does and I enjoy using it. I keep it as my spare or second phone and I am very happy with it's performance. The triple minutes is also a huge bonus. I highly recommend it.
