Frankly you may want to forget a smart phone and use what you have now for the internet stuff.
I'm poor basically. I live only on a fixed SSI income. So I use the Safelink program in the northeast of the U.S. I asked them and they said I can get another tracfone than the one they sent me so I'm looking to get one.
I've got a little money for now so I'm looking to upgrade. I could probably afford something up to $60-ish. Definitely can't afford anything over $80 so that would be my absolute max but would prefer to keep it to $60 or less.
What would you guys say is the best Tracfone these days? I know Tracfone doesn't have an android phone but they do have a couple of touch screen phones.. the LG 800g and LG 840g. What do you guys think of those two phones? And are there other, better, choices?
I mostly use my phone to make calls, text a little, and use the alarm. Wifi stuff would be nice, but not necessary.
Yeah I can't even find a price on that and like you said, they don't sell it on the internet. I'm disabled and stuck at home for the most part so online shopping is the way I have to go.
And what I have now is a very old tracfone. It doesn't have internet or apps or anything. It's the LG 320g.
Do you know anything about specific tracfone models that you might be able to help me with?
And also one w/ wifi if desired. Prices will be similar to Tracfone. Net10 is owned by Tracfone too, FWIW.
Right now I don't see anything for sale, like you said, w/ Android for TF. But you could also call their toll free support number to verify that it's simply not shown on their site but still offered for sale (The LG Optimus Zip).
You can read reviews and specs on these two phones at Target's web site here
http://www.target.com/s?searchTerm=tracfone&category=0%7CAll%7Cmatchallpartial%7Call+categories . All the reviews for the 800 were negative, but the one review for the 840 was very positive. I don't own either one, but I see they're both under $50 there.
I am on a fixed income also. They transferred all my information into the new cell with double minutes, could take pictures and you can call all over the world for a same price. I have since lost it. The new one comes with Bluetooth plus extras. Type in Walmart.com and you can see it there and can order it online. Darrell
