My First Choice Recommendation – the LG 3280 for TracFone
As I am writing this, all TracFone models vary in price from $15 to $50 for the phone alone. The features vary with each phone, and you may want a specific phone if it includes a particular feature that you want. However, all of the phones available in the bundles will be good at doing basic phone functions – in other words, making and receiving calls. I always recommend getting a bundle directly from TracFone, because you can get the phone and some starter minutes for a very good price. And, all phones from TracFone will automatically get 60 days of service and 20 minutes of talk time when you activate them on the web, so this will further reduce your cost of phone service.
At the moment, TracFone is offering a very nice deal on the LG3280 phone, which is a CDMA phone. Right now, you can get this phone, plus 1 full year of service and 800 minutes for $100 plus tax. Before I show you where to find the deal, here are some of the reasons I recommend this particular phone:
- It is a flip phone, and I recommend this style as I explained above
- It is a CDMA phone, so coverage will be slightly better, in many areas, than the GSM models
- The phone is rated as hearing-aid compatible (U3/M3), which may be important to some
- This particular phone is very good at picking up a signal, so even if network coverage is spotty, this phone will do a good job of making and receiving calls.
- It has built-in speakerphone capability, which is a nice option to have.
- At the moment, it is the only phone that comes with 800 minutes and 1 year of service
- Voice-activated dialing is a VERY nice feature, but will take some time to set up.
- The bundle including 800 minutes, one year of service, and double minutes for the life of the phone is a GREAT deal.
