GREAT PHONE FOR HUBBY!
1/1/2015

Customer review by Elisgreatgrandma

4.0 stars 1/1/2015 by Elisgreatgrandma

Ordered this phone for my husband for Christmas. It was a replacement for another phone that he had for a couple of years. He had a "flip phone" a few years ago and did not like his current phone. The " flip phone was easier to carry in his pocket instead of in a case on his belt. This phone is also more simple to use. He has a hearing problem, this phone is loud enough for him, no more, " I didn`t know you called, I didn`t hear the phone." The only problem we had was not with the phone but with the person I talked to trying to set up the phone, transferring minutes from his old phone and adding minutes that I had bought to add on. After calling again the next day and speaking to a different person, It was all made right. "Track Phone" Is the Only Way To Go with us elderly people! We do not have a lot of money for extras. Really I do not know why everyone does not use "Track Phone." It surely would save them a lot of money! Hubby is really enjoying his new phone!!!!

Phone OK / Activation Not So Much

I bought this phone as a backup to my primary line. Wanted a flip phone I could carry in my pocket when I ran up to corner store or while at work in case I need to make a quick call. I went all through the activation process and it took 3 times for it to finally accept the serial number and activate the phone. Once it told me the serial number was already assigned to someone else but I verified I entered the right number and tried again and it took it. Then I tried to buy more minutes through TracPhone's website. I tried that 3 times also and so far it has NOT worked. When you go through the process, it tells you it will take 5 minutes. Well, it's been over 9 hrs and it still hasn't processed my request. One thing I can say for the phone though, I have a full row of bars on signal strength, and my other phone through a major carrier says I only have 3 bars. If I can get this thing working, I just might just stay with Trac Phone and get rid of the major carrier phone.

I tried to activate this phone online. I followed the directions exactly. After submitting the serial number, it gave a message saying that my phone number is pending and may take up to four hours to be assigned. Seven hours later, I got my phone number. I then tried to dial the star-five digit number that completes the activation process. After sending the number, a couple different messages appeared on the screen. Then it returned to the main screen and gave a message saying "Requires Activation." I tried calling the number again and it did the same thing. I then called Tech Support from my home phone and ended up talking to five different people during the next four hours. Each of them took me through the same series of steps of entering long lists of codes and doing other things to try to troubleshoot the problem. Each person eventually gave up and transferred me to someone else. After four hours, I finally gave up and returned the phone to WalMart for a refund.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I had a trac fone for the last five years. This phone is leaps and bounds ahead of the previous one I had. Some said the sound was not loud enough they must have really bad hearing .. The sound is great I don,t even have it at max setting and can hear very well. Easy to use features. It is a simple phone but thats what I wanted for emergencys and a few personal calls. I am very pleased with this phone. If you are getting a new phone and have had trouble in the pass with having enough signal strengh you may want to check out which network you are on . If the phone identifcation number ends in C it is a verison network phone. If it ends in G it is a AT&T network phone. I now have verison network with this phone and it is 100 persent better than the pervious phone. Before I could not use the phone in my house or out in the yard at my address in Florida and there is a cell tower 1/2 mile frrom my home. With the new lg236c I can use it in the house as well as out in the yard, what a difference. Hope this review helps.

Wanted a basic phone to carry on trips. I don't text, take pictures with phone surf the net or spend much time talking on phone, so this is a perfect phone. Decided to order the 236 rather than the newer 237 model, as the older phone has longer battery time. Simple to operate without all the useless bells and whistles. Coverage with Verizon network has been good. (C model is Verizon, G model uses ATT network) More than adequate volume on speaker. (don't like to hold these near my head) Did not set up voicemail as I use this to call out only, so won't be bothered with any robocalls! I'll stick with the flip phones any day. No accidental "butt-calls" and small enough to carry in my pocket. I'm actually thinking about buying a "spare" in case they decide to drop this model. Excellent basic phone and cheap phone time using TracFone.

Can I transfer my existing tracfone number and minutes to this new phone.
by kaister 3/23/2014

  • A. Have had this phone for 11 days now and have had nothing but trouble activating it. I made a 1 hr and 7 min call (sounded like India) and struggled to hear the lady who told me that the transfer of my old Tracfone number and my existing 3322.9 minuets would take a day or two. I called again 4 days later (40 min wait) and Tracfone told ne that I had to wait 48 hours more. The phone tells me it is now programmed and to push any key to continue ...... I did, and it showed the message "Activation Required". Great Phone ..... extremely poor Customer Service. Still NO Activation.

  • A. You can transfer your old cell # but not your remaining minutes from your old cell service, I don't think.

  • A. Yes, you are able to call TracFone and transfer existing minutes from your current TracFone to a new TracFone.

  • A. As long as the older Tracfone is active the phone number can be transferred to the new phone. Once the number is transferred you will not be able to use the old phone for anything except 911 calls unless you add more minutes and a new number is assigned. Regarding minutes; Whether the old phone is active or not all minutes on the old phone can be transferred to the new phone. You will need the Serial Number for each phone when you call using a third phone. (You need a third phone as you may need to enter codes on each phone. Tracfone personnel will explain what you need to do to guide you through the process.)
