Pretty Cool!

This is the cell that I have. I'll admit it, it's not an iPhone4, but it does the job and does it right.

This is the cell that I have. I'll admit it, it's not an iPhone4, but it does the job and does it right. It comes with three fun games too! :) I don't remember the last time I didn't get bars, and there's even a bunch of cute little emotes to text to your buddies, i.e. winking, crying, and silently saying the word "wow"! I got this as a Christmas present from my mom and dad. This is a good first cell phone for kids aged 10-12, but i plan on keeping mine long past the day i turn twelve. Anyway I love the phone. I would buy it again if i didn't already own it. The little "wow"-ing emote man says it best! Less

Nice phone, but I can't use it.

The first W370 I purchased charged once, then never again. It took 4 calls and a wait of 3 weeks before Tracfone replaced it.

The first W370 I purchased charged once, then never again. It took 4 calls and a wait of 3 weeks before Tracfone replaced it. They said twice that they had sent a replacement, but they hadn't, with a week lost between each time. The second phone holds a charge for approximately 24 hours, if I don't use it. If I use it, the battery goes dead immediately. Tracfone says it's my fault for charging it every day (which I don't) and no one else has this problem. I've found several online message boards dedicated to the battery problems with this phone, and other reviewers here have the same problem. They won't cancel the service nor issue a refund. Worst customer support ever. 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 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

Cell phone, tracphone Thank you for prompt shipment. It arrived sooner than expected. Just what I was looking for. Very easy to program over web site.

It's ok, but....

from Amazon
I basically like this phone. I am thoroughly disappointed with the fact that I can't browse the web... they charge you minutes when you try. They also charge you for ringtones that you can't download.

I bought a Motorola W370, which initially worked fine but failed to charge the second time I went to recharge it. Three months later, after the second replacement phone and the fourth replacement sim card, I'm still trying to get a working phone. To add insult to injury, Tracfone is refusing to restore the minutes I paid for with the original phone. Each time you contact Tracfone for technical support, expect to spend at least an hour on the phone. You will be speaking with people for whom English is not their native language, you will not be able to understand much of what they say due to the poor line quality, and the people with whom you will be speaking will have no authority to actually solve your problem. Each time you call them, you start over. I strongly recommend not buying anything from Tracfone. If you do buy a phone from them and end up with any kind of problem, just throw the phone away and move on. If you go into it understanding that a phone from Tracfone is an unsupported product and you didn't really need a phone anyway, a W370 from Tracfone may be just the product you're looking for. Less

Motorola TracFone W370 and W376 cellphones.

Unfortunately, these two excellent cellphones are apparently no longer available on Amazon.com. Before I could order the W376g, from AMZ, they dropped it. In a way it was good for me as the price from TracFone.com was $10 less and included double minutes for life of phone. Price: $29.99 plus shipping. The main differences between the two phones are the W376g has a camera with 4X zoom that works quite well and the phonebook holds 500 entries. This appears to be a very well made unit and all of the functions work as advertised. I highly recommend this phone. Be sure to read the various descriptions carefully before ordering so as not to be expecting a Cadillac for the price of a Chevvy. On TracFone's web site you may access the owners manual if you want the fine points of this phone. Less

I've had this phone for about six months now, and I'm very satisfied with it. I am a very specialized user: I use this mobile phone to make telephone calls. I've not used it to browse the Web or do anything else except make telephone calls. I've not fussed around with backgrounds or ringtones, or have I tried to modify the phone or make it do anything else except make telephone calls. I've ignored all features of the phone except those that support making voice telephone calls. I'm grateful it has as few features as it does have--I specifically wanted a phone that does NOT have a camera or an MP3 player or anything else. I'm very grateful that Motorola and Tracfone have provided a phone for the niche market of people who want to have a reliable mobile phone to make telephone calls. Less

I found out that you cannot change the time from daylight savings to regular for the season. You can change the time from analog to digital but that's it. I called wherever the heck Tracfone's customer service people reside--I believe he said Malaysia--he talked so fast I still don't have a clue what he said, but he was reading from a bunch of papers given him to appease the Tracfone cell phone caller. I was pleased that I had called on another phone because it took so long I would have used up all of my minutes waiting for the horrible experience to get over!!! I was not happy with Tracfon's customer service event and did not get an answer to my question--representative apparently couldn't find it either! This morning I got an E-Mail from Tracfone telling me they were happy my question had been answered adequately and thanking me for my inquiry. Love the phone, am happy with everything but their customer service. I have now realized that for 6 months I will have the incorrect time on my cell phone, but won't have to change when daylight savings time rolls around!!! I'm thinking now about calling Motorola to see if they might have an answer to my question. Less
