Rated 5 out of 5 by Retired Grandma Another best buy
I have been using a TracFone for the past 20 years. I have been updating every year since I discovered them on QVC because of the good value with minutes and airtime. I just purchased this one for myself and it was so easy. I called the number in package and follow the instructions and I was ready to go. Everything updated and transferred within minutes. No loss of airtime or minutes plus I get to keep my phone number. The value is very, very good.

For the money it is a good product. Happy with ease of use and robust versatility. Texting is slow have to download received texts and usually not available. Updating of account has not happen yet after two weeks. Otherwise it fits my needs perfectly for now.
Rated 1 out of 5 by nljord PIECE OF. DIRTY JUNK
Obviously a return. Back original case was filthy and severely scratched. No quality control on this one. I dont expect someone's return when I order a new phone. Totally grossed out knowing they send used phones and call them new. Please refund shipping also. Now I have to order from another shopping channel. I love TracFone service but this phone is a big miss. So annoyed - as reason I ordered this phone is my phone died - now I have to wait another week for a phone. Not happy with this order.

I bought this phone with good faith. After trying to register it with no results, I got on TracFone's web site and talked with a rep. He told me he would send me a new SIM card. I got a notice in mail 3 days later to return the defective phone. I did. I am bow waiting for a new replacement.
Rated 2 out of 5 by CJS76 Not right technolgy
This phone does not work in my area in spite of putting in my Zip code to make sure it did. The phone kept searching for towers. If the towers only work on CDMA technology in your area this phone will not work for you. I am sending it back not knowing how good it works because I never was able to make a call. So if you get the phone not knowing what the towers in your area run on, the phone may not work for you. If you live in a more rural area, like I do, you may not have coverage by the TWO kinds of technology that phones run on. CDMA run on Verison and Sprint lines, so look for a C at the end of the model number. AT&T and T Mobil run on the other lines with a G at the end of the model number. I learned all this after talking to someone at Tracfone after many hours of trying to activate this phone. I need a phone with CDMA technology in my area instead and Tracfone has phones that run on both technologies lines. So beware that there is a difference when ordering. Maybe checking the model number of your old phone for a C or G at the end before purchasing another phone may help save you a lot of trouble. The companies model number should be made more visible when looking at each phone on QVC not just QVC's number.
Rated 5 out of 5 by oreo64 Great phone!
I love this model, it has all the bells and whistles. I've also been really happy with my tracfone service. This is my second phone and I'm going into my third year of service. Switched from Verizon and DO NOT MISS THE BILL!!!! Refill cards are sold everywhere, and Target puts them on sale occasionally, too. Highly recommend.
Rated 5 out of 5 by CNRzMama Very happy with my choice
I've been a TracFone customer for many years and purchased this phone as an upgrade. So glad I finally made the choice! Transfer of my number was super easy and it took less than an hour (maybe 40 minutes) for the transfer to actually happen! Phone is exactly as described. Reception is great (no outage spots on my daily commute). Still learning all the available features, but I really love the Talk to Text option!
Rated 3 out of 5 by mindy s Great phone, horrible customer service!
I have used Tracfones for over 15 years and have never had a problem with their phones. This LG Destiny is great, but getting any Tech Support from Tracfone is a nightmare. In fact, I have NEVER had a successful contact with Tracfone. I keep using them because I live in a very remote area near the Canadian border, and other carriers do not cover this area reliably. This, plus the no-contract Tracfone keep me coming back. So just know that unless you can set up your phone yourself, without Tech Support, you shouldn't buy from Tracfone. The LG Destiny is a top-notch smart phone with all the bells and whistles. I rate the LG Destiny 5 stars and the Tracfone Customer Service, Tech Support and website 1 star. Hence the 3-star overall rating.
