The LG 500g is available from TracFone.com today.
[EDIT: Note that the LG 800g is also now on Net10.com. I’ll be posting about that later today.
I’ll also be posting on youtube – very shortly – a quick “unboxing” review of the LG 800g. Once that video is up, I’ll put up another post on this blog. By the time you read this, the video should be available at http://www.youtube.com/prepaiddeals.]
If you’re a TracFone customer looking for a QWERTY phone rather than the 800g touch-screen that came out last week, you’re in luck. The 500g is listed at $29.99, but you can get a $5 discount using the code GI2011.
I’m a little surprised that the price tag on this phone is the same as the LG 800g – I expected it to be a little cheaper. Still, $25 for a QWERTY phone is a pretty good deal. And if, like I expect, this one is very similar to the LG 900g from Net10, I think you’ll be happy with this device at this price.
