    Excellent phone and Tracfone service

    I was having an issue with my Tmobile pay as you go flip phone service - calls basically were not working right so I decided to give this Tracfone LG442BG phone and service a try. I could not be happier. The phone itself is great - it is better than the very similar LG 450 that I was using before. The battery life is superb, the phone has a nice slick feel to it and the call quality is pretty good. My only complaint is that there is a right soft button set to browser that you cannot change and if you click it it will initiate the mobile web and start to charge you. I tried it and it took like half a minute from me. I just don't click the button (unless I guess I need to one day). I would prefer that I could make that button some other function but oh well. Tracfone itself is also excellent. It is way better than tmobile pay as you go in my opinion. The Tracfone website is one of the best I have seen of any similar site and it is easy to activate your phone, switch phone numbers, add airtime all from the site or from your phone etc. I use the $19.99 plan which comes to almost $7 a month and gives you double minutes. It lasts for 3 months and the minutes roll over - just refill before 3 months is up. Plus you can call almost any country internationally and you are charged the same rate as domestic call. There is a cool feature that lets you associate international long distance numbers with a 1 888 number that you can then set to speed dial - no more dialing any long string of numbers - brilliant. I had an issue with this and customer service helped me and it works great. They also have a wide selection of phones. The service seems to work well - no garbled or drop calls so far. To sum up - this is a great LG flip phone with great Tracfone service. I just wish I had done this much earlier.

    Excellent Cell Phone for The Minimalist

    Posted

    I am a minimalist and a businessman. I love this cell phone. Never breaks down, stands up in all weather, easy to use, easy to place in your pants pocket, is my alarm clock in the morning, I text all day on it, simple and perfect if you are a "Minimalist" person like myself. Live simple, less stress, and save a bundle of money. Ok, the guys in the gym think I'm still living in the Caveman era, but who the heck cares, they don't pay my bills. I bet they are all in debt trying to pay off their cell phone bills. Buy this if you want to save lots of money, live a simple lifestyle, and be happy. I am a successful businessman without a car, fancy cell phone or office. Work from my home dining room table. Recommend it very highly. Good Day.

    I am very pleased with my purchase of the LG 422GB flip phone. While the phone offers ease and simplicity of use I am happily surprised at all the goodies packed into this unit. Basic phone calling yes, but in addition I was able to easily set up an email account, use the comfortable and efficient keyboard to quickly enter my contacts, discovered that the phone offers voice command for making phone calls, listening to voicemails and that the calendar permitted entries which could be cycled daily, weekly, monthly and yearly just like smartphones do. Right out of the box the LG worked smoothly with no problems. For those who just want basic phone and texting it's there but this very portable phone does much more.

    Unfortunately my phone ( a basic standard TracFone) got wet about a month ago and it quit working.When I went online to investigate a new phone, serendipity ! Best Buy not only had my same phone BUT it was on sale for only $10 which is only about what it costs to purchase a battery for the phone. Having already owned and used this same phone for a while, I am happy to report that it is a very good,sturdy basic phone which has a number of features found on many other more expensive phones. I have been very happy with it

    I have a son with a disability and he needed a new flip phone when his became broken. He doesn't need a smart phone with all of the bells and whistles. He has always had a flip phone and this one fit the bill. You can text with it but it doesn't have a qwerty key pad. It can take pictures as well. For the other things it can do just check out the Best Buy website or see it at one of the stores. If you need a simple flip phone this one is what you are looking for.

    This is my 2nd Tracfone. I got upset with the first one I had when they needed to upgrade their phone service. The substitute phone they sent me was a used device that was low quality. Plus the upgrade took HOURS to do, so I cancelled the service. I switched to another carrier, but was not satisfied with the product. So, I came back to Tracfone. I purchased a new phone which is excellent. I like Tracfone because I don't want to pay a monthly fee for a cell phone.

    My 1st TracFone was lost or so I thought . I bought this model for the convience . It works great and the battery will last a long time. I didn’ Need all the whistles and bells of a smart phone. Just needed It for calling. I like the flip phone. If you need one just to keep track of any one, then buy one.I also like the double minutes for the phone.

    I purchased this item because I needed a new tracfone. I was having a hard time finding a flip phone as that is all I need. I only use the phone to make calls and it is great. It fits nicely in my pocket and I don't have the problem of pocket dialing anyone now. The only downsize I have is that it took along time on the phone with a representative to transfer my phone number and minutes to this new one.

    We were looking for a phone the kids (7-8) could take with them when they went to play with their neighborhood friends. This is working well so far, they're by no means gentle with it and we haven't had issues during the month we have had it. The difficulty to use it for anything besides phone calls was a definite bonus for us, as we don't want them to use it recreationally.

    This is my husbands second flip phone the first one would stay charged all week this one I have to charge it every 5 days and he is not using it any more than the old phone even less. A flip phone is good for him because all he wants is to be able to have me call him or he call me, he doesn't like the new fangled smart phones. I would recommend to people like my husband.

    I give Best Buy an "F" for not correctly scanning in this item so I could buy minutes. I even asked your representative if he can scanned in properly upon purchase. Had to drive long way to go back to Best Buy so your store could correctly scan product so I could purchase minutes. I have been a Best Buy customer since your inception, but no more. Very bad customer service.

    I've had several cell phones with all the bells & whistle and subsequently broke them all. After considering my usage I realized all I needed was a bulletproof phone. This one has a few features, but most of all its really hardy and runs up to seven days without a recharge. Just a great low cost little phone.

    I have had the phone for a short time. So far I am pleased with it. It is what I was looking for a simple flip top phone. I had another type phone but was not a flip top and I kept hitting keys by accident and some times making calls by accident.....I do not use cell phone much..But I am pleased with it for my type of use.....Seems to be a good phone..

    If you need a good replacement in a hurry because your smart phone took a swim while on travel, this little phone will fill the bill. It's an inexpensive way to keep you in touch with the world until you can take care of your other phone. The kind folks at BB were good enough to set things up for me in a short time.

    I bought tihe TracPhone because the smart phone was not for me. I have had it for a short time and I am very happy with the results. I would recommend this phone to anyyone who has trouble with a smart phone. The idea that you only pay for minutes that you use is a great feature for anyone that doesn't talk a lot. Love the phone!

    I wanted a basic phone to move my landline number to, I wasn't planning on using the phone on a daily basis, just wanted to get rid of my landline bill but needed to keep the phone number, so far this has worked great!! Pretty painless to move my verizon number.

    My husband and I have used tracfone for more than 20 years. We aren't ready to get into all the high tech phones so these simple to use phones are perfect for us to carry with us when we travel and it would be hard to beat the price. Thank you Best Buy for still carrying the tracfone and minute cards.

    Bought Tracfone and activated it. Worked Ok in good signal area But when in a weaker signal area, on AT&T, "No Service" even though my Samsung G5 worked fine. I have requested a Tracfone replacement after over an hour on the phone. Hope it is just a bad phone. We'll see.

    Finally after breaking two phones and butt dialing everyone and not really using all of the features, I am back to a reliable plain old phone that works and is rugged. Sometimes all you need is a phone for emergencies etc. It does also have texting capabilities. All I need!

    This is a great beginner phone. Especially if just being used for calls and texts. I got this for my mom who needed a new one, because the other got broken. She understands a little bit of how to use it, so it works great and the number pad is a decent size and fits in pocket real well.
