Tracfone LG16 Lucky Smartphone

Very good phone. Not too big to need a belt carrying case, as screen is only 3.5 inches, and the phone is thin to not be too bulky for carrying in pants pockets. The manual says it'll accept up to a 32 GB micro SD card, but it accepted my 128 GB micro SD card, and recognizing the card as having 128GB of storage, of which I used to install an App that I already paid for elsewhere, so I didn't have to pay for the App again had I purchased it again thru this phone's App download site. Camera has decent resolution. Originally bought this phone to transfer Safelink Tracfone service to, but Safelink reps misinformed me, and then when I tried to transfer the Safelink service, I was told Safelink doesn't support Smartphones. Decided to keep phone to use as Prepaid, but mostly to use a Wireless Interface Code Scanner, of which it works in conjunction with the phone's Bluetooth, for displaying state-of-the-art software auto engine analyzing monitors, as well as retrieving engine fault codes. LG and Walmart partered up together to both reduce the price to a riduculous $10, of which nothing can beat.

service/product

Went to Walmart prior to ordering a phone--my current phone could not be used from my house; one would need to travel 2 miles in order to use the phone. The sales person explained to me that I live in a verizen area & the phone was ATT compatible d/t the code on the bottom right code (CDMA-V) on the front of the box. She took all the time I needed to make me "phone educated". She stated oddly enough this Walmart sells all ATT accessible phones even though the area is not very ATT friendly. Problem solved! Ordered this phone from Walmart on line & it works beautifully from my home. I had it delivered to the store where I got all the info from the sales person--they connected my phone to tracfone, transferred my minutes to this new phone & I was ready to go! Go Walmart! I love my phone it has more features than I need--Wi-Fi capable, video, camera & works from my house!

Excellent Value for Basic needs

For $9.82 this phone is an excellent value for a person who simply wants to place and receive calls, send text messages and send low quality but viewable pictures.. This is NOT the phone for a person who wants to take "SELFIES" since this phone does not have a rear facing camera. Also, this phone does NOT have an LED light, so, taking pictures in the dark will be a problem with this phone... So, if taking pictures is NOT that big of a deal for you this phone is an excellent choice, especially at this price point... I will likely upgrade to a better phone in the future, but this phone is just fine for right now.. I would buy it again.

Don't Trust the Zip Code Verification

I bought this particular model, Tracfone Lucky, because when I put in our zip code in the "will this work in your area" space, it stated Yes, it will work. I tried surrounding zips also because we do live in an area with very few cell towers. After it arrived and I charged it, no service. I waked it around my home, outside, took a ride to try and find service - nothing. I called Tracfone and they stated No,you have no service in your area. I explained that I verified it three times otherwise I never would have bought the phone. They stated they would send me a new phone that would work here. We'll see. Very nice phone though.

Not bad

For the price I paid, which was $9.99, this phone is pretty darn good. First let me say that I don't think you can upgrade the O.S. higher than what it ships with, so keep that in mind. I tried upgrading it through auto updates over wifi, and it just told me that there were no updates for it. This is my first smart phone, so maybe there is another way, but I doubt it. The phone seems to have triple minutes on it. I added a 120 minute card and I got 360. The built in storage is kinda low. You only get a little over 1 gigabyte of usable free space out of the box. With automatic updates to the default apps, this starts to vanish pretty quickly. So what I did was disable a bunch of apps that I don't need. This reverts those apps to their factory defaults, which erases their updates, and it prevents them from downloading updates in the future, thus saving space. There is support for an SD card to expand your space. It is under the cover that snaps onto the back of the phone, and the phone comes with a 4 gigabyte card pre-inserted into that slot, but it is not clear to me whether this card is already being used or not. To see your remaining minutes, you need to install an app from the Google Play Store. The app is free, but you need a Google email account to use the Play Store and a few other other Android apps. With the free app also comes a widget that displays your separate remaining talk, text, and data allowances on your home screen. It does not display them with the precision that you may be used to from using older tracfones, so be aware of that. The phone's screen is a decent size, and the touch accuracy feels good enough for typing in spite of the limited screen space for a keyboard. The speed of the phone seems fine. I have not had any problems with the phone seeming sluggish, but I did have one app freeze randomly. I was easily able to force the app to close so that I could re-launch it. Overall, while this is not the best smartphone, it's definitely a steal for 9.99, especially with triple minutes. I don't regret buying it.
