      Answer

      This is a pretty easy phone to use in my opinion. You can buy airtime cards for it at different places like best buy, online etc. You can also buy it right from the tracfone website in your account (you should sign up for an account once you get the phone - you can activate it from your account). You can also buy airtime straight from the phone itself. The phone always tells you how many minutes you have left and how much time is left on the plan. The cheapest airtime plan is $19.99. It gives 60 minutes but Tracfone doubles it to 120 minutes. Best buy sells it. It's a card with a pin number on it. It lasts for 3 months before you must buy a new card. The minutes roll over so you won't lose it just make sure to buy and apply another $19.99 card before the 3 months is up (like a day or two before). This is the plan I am using. They are very flexible and you can use other value cards - one lasts a year. As far as monthly billing or some kind of auto billing I believe that can be set up in your account so you don't have to worry about buying airtime cards. One thing I like is that International calls cost the same as domestic calls - so very very cheap.

        Answer

        I know nothing about the 440 or 441 but I'm not happy with the 442. It would not hold a charge for more than a day and they send me a new battery. Same problem with the new battery and I'm waiting for the new phone they are sending me!

          Answer

          yes stacy you do need to add minutes. I have a track phone card which is perfect to use for only $10. a month I use this phone for only for calls if I have to call home or if there is an emergency while we are out. I have used a tracphone for over 9 years and they cancelled all flip phones which made me so mad so was glad I could find this one and it works with tracphone cards
