This phone is good for your youngest kid. And only so, if he or she really likes to text. I bought this phone a while back, thinking that because it's basic, it has to do the basic real well. It doesn't talk well, and somehow it doesn't like signal. But it texts like a dream. To boot, the battery life is also exceptional considering the amount of time spent texting (!?) Seeing that it's withstood the batterings of an eleven year old, it stands to reason that it's reasonably durable. But other than that there's not much more to this phone.
I got it with double minutes for life, which I consider to be extremely important when having a tracfone. It halves the cost of your minutes, had you otherwise not had this feature on your phone. The price of the phone itself sort of absolves it from being criticized too vehemently - what can one expect from a phone that only cost $10?
As far as the bad signal, and talking quality is concerned, I know it's the phone and not tracfone. I have a motorola c139 in the family as well, so I've been comparing constantly when a complaint comes my way.
