Pro: Great quality Con: Really small Using experience: 7 months This phone is too adorable. It is really simple to use and has really great coverage. I personally love it's small size because it fits in my pockets or purse easily without bulging out. It has cool features and a really nice color display. Plus the Tracfone service gives back big savings and has nationwide coverage. Definitely think this phone is worth giving a shot! Less

Very sturdy, durable cell phone with some extras built in

from Amazon
Well, I'm 55 - and my Go Phone (the C139 from Motorola) has survived a fire - several keys are partly melted - and 3 years of disuse (I didn't continue the AT & T agreement). Yet I just plugged it in and it lights up, does its little noise and is charging. Amazing! It's the Timex of cellular phones - "...More
Well, I'm 55 - and my Go Phone (the C139 from Motorola) has survived a fire - several keys are partly melted - and 3 years of disuse (I didn't continue the AT & T agreement). Yet I just plugged it in and it lights up, does its little noise and is charging. Amazing! It's the Timex of cellular phones - "takes a licking and keeps on ticking"! A very durable cellular phone - that you can use to text others - and to set for reminders - and a few other things (calculator, conversion chartes of metric/English, Celsius/Fahrenheit, tells you what time it is elsewhere in the world, etc.). Mine cost $50 (though I received back a $25 value on a credit card I had to use within six months). I guess I'd be a satisfied customer - if I liked cellular phones at all! Less

Don't buy this phone. It will leave you stranded when you need it.

After reading the bad reviews, I reluctantly bought one of these phones, however for only $10 I decided to give it a shot anyway. I read the start-up instructions (very clear step by step with pictures) and did accordingly. I activated the phone using the tracfone website and I have to say that it was easy and fairly quick. The phone was activated in literally minutes and it has been working beautifully ever since. The phone itself is a good quality piece of hardware for the money and it has a bright and colorful screen and backlighting. Signal strength has been excellent (5 bars) just about everywhere I have been so far. The phone sounds loud and clear and it has more features than I expected. The airtime cards have been working smoothly and the minutes+expiration date rollover everytime you redeem minutes. I have not dealt with their customer service, but if anything goes wrong I can always buy another one for $10 and reactivate the number. Tips to keep cost to a minimum: buy the double minute card before any other cards. Do not setup your voicemail option, you will know the number of the person that has called without losing minutes. Do not give out the number to everyone, it can run into real money if used too much, this phone is meant for sporadic and emergency use only. Also, when you register online all you need is the long string of numbers that comes on a card within the package, your email address, your zip code and the zip code of the area where you will be using it most. All other info they request (name, home number, birth date) is not required and you can even skip it or lie about it. Overall: VERY GOOD! Less

Very disapointed with Tracfone's customer service

I used a Tracfone for a few years with decent results--the phone was fine. Recently, though, after my first problem that required customer service, I decided to cancel my service.

I used a Tracfone for a few years with decent results--the phone was fine. Recently, though, after my first problem that required customer service, I decided to cancel my service. I just lost $100 of minutes due to Tracfone's error, and despite my calls to 3 service reps and 2 supervisors, I received nothing more than an apology. Unethical companies like this don't deserve my business--or yours. I should have trusted the armies of web reviewers who've issued similar warnings, and now I find myself adding to that list. I'm also moving to T-Mobile's pre-paid plan, which I've found offers slightly lower rates and, most important for me, significantly better customer service. NOTE: If you check out my other Amazon reviews, you'll notice that I usually only take time to review products and services that I really enjoy. Like most of us, I'm too busy to do more. In this case, though, with unethical behavior and lost money involved, I simply felt the need to warn others like you. Less

I used a Tracfone for a few years with decent results--the phone was fine in most basic ways. Recently, though, after my first problem that required customer service, I decided to cancel my service. As I've learned again and again in my life, a company's true merits emerge when a problem arises and a consumer seeks reasonably fair resolution. In my case, I just lost $100 of minutes due to Tracfone's error, and despite my calls to 3 service reps and 2 supervisors, I received nothing more than an apology. Unethical companies like this don't deserve my business--or yours. I should have trusted the army of web reviewers who've issued similar warnings, and now I find myself adding to that list. By the way, I'm moving to T-Mobile's pre-paid plan, which I've found offers slightly lower rates for my particular needs and, most important for me, significantly better customer service. NOTE: If you check out my other Amazon reviews, you'll notice that I usually only take time to review products and services that I especially enjoy. Like most of us, I'm too busy to do more. In this case, though, with clearly unethical behavior and lost money involved, I simply feel the need to warn others like you. Less

nice litle phone

Nice litle phone, but just for making and receiving calls. No bells or whistles. This phone replaced a C139 that was lost. It is all I need.

If you have a child who you want to carry a cell phone, but don't want to pay lots of money for all of the extras (or if you yourself just want a "basic" phone), this is a good value for the money. Large screen displays numbers very clearly. Sound quality is good. Battery life is a little short and the phone cannot be used while it is charging (that's a pretty big negative, IMO). But overall, this is a good starter phone and serves the purpose. If you just want a dependable phone to carry with you in case of emergencies, this phone fits the bill nicely. Less
