Spartan and solid features


This phone scores high marks for usability and solid essential features. Menu system layout is similar to that of the Razr V3, although some buttons are switched around (select/exit). If you are looking for: -a solid backup phone. -an alternative to...

1. Cheap price, durable construction ; 2. Recognizes AT&T/Cingular Sim Card ; 3. Call quality is good; clear ; 4. Came with battery (BQ50), AC Adapter ; 5. Universal mini-USB connector

No battery?


This page needs to be updated to state that there is NO BATTERY INCLUDED.

It is nice and small

No battery included. The other reviews didn't state anything like this before I bought it, so I am assuming that they just started doing this

NOT 900/1800


Do NOT buy this phone thinking it will work in Europe. It is not a 900/1800 frequency phone as indicated. I just got back from italy where the phone did NOT work and I had to purchase a phone while over there.

The phone itself seems nice and functional..however i never got a chance to use it

NOT the right frequency

easy to use; pay as you go

none to speak of

This is great for my mom or kids whose parents just want to keep in touch.

I Love My Tracfone


My Tracfone is a little workhorse. It's easy to keep track of service days and minutes. I'd recommend the Tracfone to anyone needing a quality, low cost, communication device.
