E223155 - Samsung S390 Tracfone w/1400 Mins, Triple Mins.for Life & Acc
I really do like the phone.. but getting it set up was a royal pain you know where... I took four calls to get it working, and after many trys.. I could NOT keep my phone number.. They just said there was a error when they where doing it.. Well I think if they did this in america, instead of where ever it was I was talking to. the error would not of happened.. Not impressed with that part of the service or phone.. other then that, it's been working good, Hope this helps others.. All I can say is GOOD LUCK....
I bought my first Tracfone a year ago. I have saved so much money by owning this! When I saw this model, I couldn't resist buying it...it's an upgrade for me and the 1400 free minutes are cheaper than me buying minutes for my old phone. It was easy figure out, I had my rollover minutes within an hour and and connecting to wifi was simple. LOVE this phone!

Good value, some issues
This is my 2nd time with Tracfone after a few years with AT&T and T-Mobile prepaid phones. It's a great deal for a not-so-dumb phone with a lot of bonus minutes. I don't use a mobile phone enough to justify a contract, but I use it often enough (more than just emergencies) that I had been frustrated with the bare-bones phones I had on other prepaid plans. So this one works for me. The little keys and the touch wheel take some getting used to, but I'm happy to not have to scroll through a number keypad to get to the right letters for texting. QVC issue: I ordered it with the red case, but there was no swatch on the website and it's more orange than red. Other (Tracfone) issue, noted by others: when a text runs beyond what shows on the screen, the overage is charged as another message, so I've burned thru more minutes than I expected to with chattier friends. And every part of the set-up took a few days for me, it wasn't as quick as others.
I just received my phone today and it is charging now. The keypad is MUCH smaller than I expected. Anyone having issues with sight will not be able to use it either to put in a number or to text. Otherwise I think I'll like it.
I got my phone and the set up was so easy and about 15 minutes the package deal was done. Had no problems at all. thanks for the great item. This saves me alot of
I had been contemplating getting a Tracfone because I didn't want to be locked into a contract anymore (which wasn't very economical for me). I was afraid a Tracfone wouldn't perform very well and would be cheaply made. Boy was I wrong. This is a substantial phone, more so than my contract phones ever were. The reception is great in my area. It was very easy to set up and port my contract phone #. I had a little trouble setting up my voice mail. The CS rep with Tracfone was wonderful and helped me set it up. She was very patient and very helpful. The voice quality is absolutely wonderful. I always felt like I was in a tunnel listening on my contract phone. It took me a couple of weeks to get use to the Qwerty keys because they are small. The camera and video resolution is excellent. Love the voice to text messaging. I haven't set up my email or did any browsing on the phone. I really didn't buy it to do this. The screen IMO is just too small for browsing. This is a great phone if you talk and text moderately. I'm saving a ton from my contract phone! 2 thumbs up!
Replaced my other Tracfone
I replaced my LG Tracfone for the Samsung S390. Tracfone is the way to go if you don't want all the functions and cost of other carriers. I use mine to make, receive calls and text..that's it! I was paying $40 a month with minutes I couldn't carry over...what a waste. With Tracfone it cost me $20 per month or less. The rep at Tracfone was very helpful and my phone with the 1400 minutes was up and ready to use within 15 minutes. Highly recommend this phone.
NO West Africa international calling Not!
I was very disappointed that international calling with tracphone does not include AFRICA , more specifically west AFRICA --- However, you can call all over Europe!
I wonder why Tracphone International does not include AFRICA
VERY DISAPPOINTED REGARDING THIS EXCLUSION! of AFRICA
I RATED IT TWO STARS- BECAUSE NO CALLING TO AFRICA--- ITS JUST NOT FAIR!!
I bought this phone for my 13 yr old, and he loves it!. He wanted something fancier, but he fell in love with this phone. I would not buy him a more expensive phone because a 13 yr old does not need that. This is perfect!
Triple Minutes alone makes this a great deal
But I bought it for my tween to use. She wanted an IPHONE. Ha ha ha. Its not an Iphone. This does let her text and surf the web from our wifi.
Love the included protective case.
No trouble activating/adding QVC triple minutes via the website.
I considered getting one because I can't stand the contract phones and the wifi web feature MIGHT come in handy. The keys are a little small and so is the screen for my middle aged eyes. That's why I only gave it 4 stars.
I've liked the sliders in the past and I might buy the E222576 for myself.
I received this phone 5 weeks ago and am very pleased with it. I don't use a cell phone very much so this is perfect for me. The set up was very easy and my old phone number transferred quickly. The buttons are small but I haven't had a problem with them. I like having the ability to check email and facebook on my phone.
The manual that came with the phone didn't have much information but the full owner's manual is available online. Also I do wish you could disable the browser button but you can't - you just have to be careful to not hit it by mistake. Aside from these two minor issues, this is a great phone.
