I was pleasantly surprised by this little phone. It has a big screen compared to all the other prepaid phones out there and the best thing is, it's a slider! Activate it on tracfone.com and it'll work in a matter of minutes! Calls are really good as well as texting. Voice quality is great. When you dial a number, the numbers are really big, which is nice.. and if you don't like big numbers, you can adjust the font size. BUT.. the best thing about this phone is.. if you're not at home and you're on vacation.. you can even check your email, facebook, and the weather! The only bad thing is it takes 1/2 a minute every time you access the web for 1 minute.. so you use the minutes up quickly if you use the browsing feature a lot. Another nice thing about this phone is that it doubles your minutes. For instance, if you purchase a 120 minute card, then you get 240 minutes. If you purchase a 200 minute card, you get 400 minutes. So overall, I LOVE the phone.. especially for being prepaid and it gives you plenty of time to use up your minutes. :) :) Awesome phone! Don't think twice about purchasing this phone! Less

I love my Samsung T301G Phone.Its a Tracfone.It is a really stylish highend phone.I got alot of nice features for a good price.Right now I am trying to find out, how the video recorder works because I see nothing, about it in the handbook.I read a review where someone was saying the browser automatically comes on. I have never had that problem as he phone locks every 30 seconds.

Others have mentioned the same problems I have with the Samsung T301G: must recharge at least every 3 days and browser key is too easy to hit accidentally. Photos grainy and that I know of, no way to download onto a computer. Yes, sometimes locks up randomly in spite of using the menu to leave it unlocked. (Can unlock by entering code 1234.) In addition, even with the loudest ring tone I can find, I can't hear it ring unless I'm in a totally quiet room--though I have no difficulty hearing my Motorola 370. Most annoying perhaps, is the fact that once you reach the name & number you want on the contact menu, you still to scroll through more options to reach "Call", instead of being able to just press the green button to "Send". And why in the world is "Call" not option #1 instead of #4? It's an unnecessary step. Sending a text could be simplified. Having said all of that, sound quality and volume levels are excellent when making calls. It also has an excellent system of options for being able to view and delete information for missed calls and messages. Tracfone itself? In 7 years with them, while it sometimes requires a wait (like most companies!), once you get through, they're usually able to solve the problem pretty quickly. And when my daughter hits a dead area with her AT&T phone, I hand her my Tracfone and she makes her call. (We live in Oregon, Portland area.) Less

This is an excellent Samsung prepaid phone. Organizes well, high quality, and perfectly priced. You really can't beat it. It's very easy to use too. The Tracfone service offers everything - from big savings each month to awesome coast to coast coverage nationwide. It has everything you need in a cell phone, but without a monthly overcharged cell phone bill. Def reccommend this phone and service to anyone looking for a great deal. Less

I like this phone. I've have simple needs and this phone works well, but I have to subtract a couple of stars because of that darn browser button that I have hit several times by accident, costing me 1/2 unit of airtime each time. It screams of a "SCAM" to reduce your airtime/units, and there seems to be no way to fix this issue. I also have some concern as to how durable the phone would be, should I drop it when it's not in the case I bought for it off eBay. Finally, the screen is difficult to read in sunlight. But other than these things, the phone seems to suit my needs well enough, and saves me a lot of money versus an overpriced "gotcha" contract plan. Less

I'm disappointed with the T301G. * It reception isn't as good as the motorola's. * The battery lasts only 3 days on standby * The keypad is recessed making it awkward, its taking me quite a while to get used to it * Reception comes and goes even when its strong * The camera takes grainy photos There are only a couple of things I like about the phone: * The phone's default setting has the key lock on, especially convenient because the web browser button is on the outside * Its fairly small, only a tad larger than my motorola * Good voice quality After reading all these good reviews, I wonder if I got a dud.

Don't buy this phone!

from Amazon
This phone is horrible. It's gets no reception where my old phone got reception just fine. I constantly have an "emergency calls only" in places where reception should be fine (based on the number of people around me talking on their phones!) It's going back!

My phone had excellent reception in metro Detroit area. Fair camera quality. Bluetooth headset sync was easy. Have to pay TracFon 4min. to transfer photos :( because Bluetooth and x-fer cable is disabled. Some photos took 2 attempts (8 minutes!). Purchased the phone from my local Target, but Tracfon had to send a new SIM card to activate it. Phone started to die after 6 months; often can't turn it off. When it is off, you can see the keypad flash like it is trying to turn on. Drains the battery over night. Might go away after charging, but full or low battery does not effect problem. Tracfon will not let me just swap the SIM card to a new phone, so all the contact info will be lost :( I expected better. Less

Browser button will eat away your minutes

from Amazon
Just had to add my two cents. I read the reviews about the ease of accidentally hitting the browser button and losing minutes, and I ordered this phone anyway. And I agree 100% about the browser.

Just had to add my two cents. I read the reviews about the ease of accidentally hitting the browser button and losing minutes, and I ordered this phone anyway. And I agree 100% about the browser. While setting up the phone I have lost a few minutes already by accidentally hitting the darn browser key. What a dumb place to put a browser key! (It's the top right button on the front of the phone, and if you bump it, hit it, press it accidentally (even when the phone is in the closed position), if your phone is on, you will lose 0.5 minutes. I have searched all over the web and there is no way to disable it, or at least have it ask you if you want to connect. Terrible terrible feature. I also followed the instructions of another reviewer and entered *#4777*8665# and followed the instructions, and it doesn't work for me, and from other sites I have found out, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I am going to see over the next month how much time I lose, and then I may have to take another reviewer's advice from another website and glue the button shut. (He said this worked for him fine and you can still get to the browser from the menu button). I cannot recommend this phone to anyone who has kids, your kids will drain their minutes by accident.
