LG Tracfone Prepaid Android with 1200 Min Texts & Data Plus Accs.
We have had these phones for a while now and they work great. I wanted a phone that took nice pictures and a phone that I could easily send those pictures to facebook and this phone easily does that. You can't beat the triple text, data and minutes! We love not having a monthly cell phone bill. Very happy with this deal.
A-W-F-U-L Tracfone Service
I have owned this Tracfone for 6+ months now. I was assigned a phone number that had been used before. I received texts meant for other people often. I responded telling them they had the wrong phone number. I use the phone rarely. It was purchased for Emergency use. In Sept. I couldn't access the Net. My 1200 Data Minutes were ZERO. I had not used this phone since April 2014! Someone else used up 1200 minutes playing on the Internet AT MY EXPENSE. I called Tracfone Service and explained the situation. I talked to a Supvsr. when I didn't get any help from the Rep. No Help! Trackfone blamed me (!), saying " you must have accidentally used up all your Data minutes..." While they were looking at my acct. Phone and Text minutes were still at 1100 minutes each- and Data was ZERO! Just looking at my acct status would have told them something was OFF about my acct. TRACFONE SERVICE IS WORTHLESS! They didn't even offer ideas for how to protect my acct. in future. I changed my phone number + bought more minutes to get Net access Data minutes. QVC: please get these No Contract Phones from a cell provider that will provide reasonable Service for the phone.
I HAVE OVER A 1000 VOICE MIN. BUT HAVE TO BUY MORE VOICE MIN TO GET MORE TEXTS. QVC DOES NOT ADVERTISE THIS DRAWBACK. TEXTS AND VOICE SHOULD BE TIED IN LIKE REGULAR PHONE OR AT LEAST YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO BUY TEXT MESSAGING SEPERATELY. WILL NEVER BUY TRAC ANDROID AGAIN UNLESS THEY CHANGE TEXT MSG PURCHASE METHOD.
Had high hopes for this phone based on the presentation. Keeping this short, the phone froze on one of the set-up screens..didn't get past the "Language" setting. Kept hitting "next" or "back" and nothing happened. Turned off the power, restarted, and right back to the "language" screen. ("English" had already been entered). The phone would not revert to the main menu screen so I could complete the activation process. Called Tracfone customer service and was told there was a 45 min. wait time. Nope, sorry..going back!
The phone only worked for a little over a month. It was very difficult to plug the charger into the phone because of some resistance and then it broke, so it now can not be charged.
worst purchase ever
I had been a Tacfone customer for years...phones have always worked...but each time I upgraded phones was unable to keep the same telephone number per customer service with tracfone. After activating this new phone and transferring old phone over, I was given a new phone number and the phone never worked correctly. After a week dealing with TF customer service it was determined by TF the new phone was broken. Tf wanted me to send the new phone back to them? duh...ended up returning phone to QVC for a refund. TF was unable to activate and transfer info back to old phone and reactivate it without sending me a new sim number...6 months have passed and no sim number received...TF customer service really stinks.
The cheapest deal I've found
I purchased two LG Tracfones with the 1200 Min/Text/Data plans with the intention of giving them to my two sons. They both liked them a whole lot. The batteries last a lot longer than my son's iPod, so he's happy he can play his games and listen to his music on long trips. The phone automatically uses Wifi whenever it can, so they haven't been using the data plan which is nice. It comes with all the accessories you need except for a screen protector, and even has a car charger. It came with a notice that stated you could go to this web site and load up a bunch of apps that supposedly is worth like $500, but I looked it over and most of it was either a free trial membership or just some other app, so I threw that piece of paper away. But the phone, the car charger, the case, the 4GB memory card, and the one-year 1200 min/text/data plan is a good deal. I wish it had a bigger memory card and a screen protector, and there are higher-end phones out there but this is good for the money and the cheapest deal I've found - perfect for my kids.
THE BEST THING WAS THE MINUTES...CAN'T SEND TEXT MESSAGE DOUBLE AND TRIPLE TAPPING THE SCREEN...UNRESPONSIVE..CAN'T WAIT TO REPLACE.

I got this phone for my mom and she's had it now for a few months. She likes it, jus wishes that the screen was bigger.
the moment I took this phone out of the box, I need I did not want it, and it is being returned asap.....the phone is soo small compared to other phones I have had from Tracphone, and I just didn't like the feel of the phone, and the case is the cheapest of the cheapest, so back to QVC.............

We use tracfone because basically for 8 bucks a month each me, my husband and my teenage daughter each get a cel phone. That's a montly cost of about 24 bucks per month total. My daughter has to pay for her own cel phone - she makes money from doing chores around the house. This teaches her to be responsible. She wanted to upgrade her phone and bought this one from the money she saved from her chores and birthday money. She has had this phone for about 8 months and thinks it is great. She is not your typical teenager using the phone nonstop - the free 1200 minutes have been enough for her so far and she has not had to add minutes yet - which makes this a great deal. She seems to currently be having some problems with the speaker on her phone (something must be loose). This is such a great deal it might make sense for us to buy another one rather than try to get it fixed. I am registered online with tracfone and transferring her number/ minutes to this phone was no problem...I followed the instructions that came with the phone to get the bonus minutes and had no problem.
If you are a heavy user/ texter - you may prefer a cel phone with an unlimited plan...but this is a really great deal for people who want to save money. I am thinking of purchasing this phone for myself. Oh and yes it does not show how many minutes/ days you have left on the start screen of the phone but there is an app that you download onto the phone to check your balance. And when I transfer my old phone number to a new phone online it usually doesn't show ALL the minutes I had on my old phone but when the new phone becomes active it has all my minutes. If there was a problem I would call tracfone to correct it and they usually do no problems...one time they gave me a hard time about transferring minutes and I asked to speak to a supervisor...asking to speak to a supervisor helps fix your problem a lot quicker. Just read all the paperwork that comes with this phone. There is a number you have to call for the bonus minutes to get a special code for them. You have to wait for the phone to be activated before you can add the bonus minutes.
Not worth the hassle
Sorry i ever purchased this phone on 3/26/14. Continues to be inoperative for long distance. I have verizon local service.I have worked w/tracfone customer service, they can only temporarily fix my phone. They dont seem to know what is causing the problem, just that we reset it and by the next week its back to being useless again. I'm getting rid of this and going to purchase another brand, not from QVC. I can't trust this phone.
