LG Tracfone Prepaid Android 4.5"Touchscreen w/ 1200 Minutes Text & Data
Amazing first smartphone!
Had a tracfone flip phone before, decided to upgrade to a smart phone. This thing is amazing, it's browsers browsed the internet better than my tablet. Love the big screen, it's so easy to use, and the battery lasts forever. Definitely recommend it!
Still learning, but I like it!
My late husband was my resident tech expert. Last year when I had to do it on my own, I purchased a TSV TracFone (LG840G). With very little customer service I had it up and running with my old phone # from Verizon, and have enjoyed the convenience and freedom from contracts. I have just today upgraded to this, my first android smart phone. I did it totally on-line with no help from customer service at all. Kept my phone # and got my promotional minutes all within 20 minutes or so. I even had transferred my contact list via Bluetooth before activation although I had never used the Bluetooth capability on my old phone at all previously! I have figured out the basic functions of calling and texting and will keep learning as I become more comfortable with it. I have also found that screen savers and cases for the LG Optimus L70 will work with this phone until these items come out specifically for this model. Glad I took the plunge!
I love this phone. It's the size of a old i phone. Very nice screen, easy to add min. from the phone, I'm a grandma and i want to text,email, and receive pictures of my kids without paying a monthly phone contract. The price of this phone is about a monthly payment for most family's. comes with a case and 1200 min.s what else could you need. Love it...thank you
Could Not Be Activated
I so wanted this phone. However, although the phone itself is easy to set up, the activation for me failed time after time. I spoke with technical support, I spoke with Verizon, I spoke with someone who seemed to be outside the US. Each person tried to help, but the result was the same: the phone could not be activated. Was the phone a dud? I thought so. So did the technical support person with whom I initially spoke. However, I have learned in the last day or so that although my zip code shows that Verizon works in my area, the reality is that my apartment complex (within the "approved" zip code# cannot/does not use Verizon. I have no idea what the problem is, but I am disappointed. The phone is on its way back.
I set up my parents' phone #the same TracFone# and all went well. They live less than a mile from me. However, my activation failed. For that reason, I cannot recommend the phone #or perhaps the truthfulness of the Zip Code check# at this time.
Phone Great - Service Agreement - UGH!
I purchased this phone for my husband (a non cellphone user). It is perfect for him. I was able to remove his ancient flip phone from my regular cellphone service plan. Saved me money. However, twice I have been told the 3 year service contract I, also, purchase had been shipped. Finally upon my continued calling I was told that I had to contact Square Trade (the service contract provider) directly. I did so immediately and was advised that they would email me a copy of the contract with in 48 hours. We will see.
Frist off this is about the 6th tracfone I have ordered from QVC, for myself, and family. I've never had a activation problem, and I didn't this time. I ordered 2 phones, and had a problem getting the 1200 prom. min. with both phones. Another thing, don't be fulled, yes this is a much nicer phone, but it is harder to us than previous phones. If you have not had a android smart phone before be prepared for a learning experience. Just trying to figure out how many minutes you have left is not simple like it was before when it just run across your screen. So if you have a lot of play time to learn how to use it, then I say go for it. It really is a nice looking phone for the money.
Too Soon To Tell...but
I am using the phone for a few days now. It was easy to set up and get my minutes. However, it seems the battery lasts maybe one day and that's it. I really like tracfones, and this one is great. But am I the only one getting only one bar?? Looks like calls will be lost, especially with Verizon in my area. I hope I can transfer my photos and contacts from my other tracfone. Haven't tried that yet.
I've been a Tracfone customer for years. Upgraded to this android smart phone. Super fast, can use wifi instead of minutes. Hands down, Tracfone is the best deal. Calling, texting, apps and internet access. Highly recommend this phone. Very pleased with this purchase.
Fabulous Phone & Service!
I have used Tracfone for years, but always wanted a phone that had features like those available with a contract. This one is wonderful and so is the service coverage!
love my lg tracfone got it last week know its my house phone stop my home phone my cell works great. for my all around phone know. love it it takes very good pic. very easy to put numbers in too.
Problem with Phone
I've only had the phone for a week and cannot send a text with a picture attachment. I called tracfone customer service and was told I would have to return the phone. I'm not very happy about this. This is one of the main reasons I purchased this phone in the first place. I love the phone however this problem is a huge issue.
Got this phone about a month ago, love it. I upgraded from the Valet, no problem activating, took less than 15 minutes from start to finish and then was able to move contacts via Bluetooth. My minutes transferred and then I used my PIN to get the additional minutes and months. Hope they will now offer covers for it.
