A good stepping-stone

Posted on: May 27th, 2008 by Nicki V

The good: Cheap, small, no external caller idThe bad: Quiet ringer, short battery life, not a lot of options, no external caller id, coverage gapsSummary: I'm currently involved in a cross-country move (from Iowa to southern Texas) and needed a number local to the area I'm moving to, so I picked up the cheapest Tracfone I could find at the Wal-Mart before heading back to Iowa to pack.I paid approximately fifteen dollars for the phone, and I suppose I got precisely what I paid for.I tend to be rather klutzy, so flip-phones work best for me (my first phone was a bar-phone, and I managed to shatter the screen mere days after getting it). This particular phone doesn't have an external screen for caller id or time, so it has to be opened to check that. It's added hassle, but it also means there's less to break - the reason why it's both a pro and a con.My two main gripes about the phone are the fact that, even with the ringer turned up as loud as it can go, it's still not loud enough to wake me if I'm asleep or to catch my attention if I've got the radio on in the car and the fact that the battery will completely die on me in about twenty hours, even if no calls were placed or received.To a lesser extent of frustration, there aren't a lot of customization options for this particular phone, meaning ringtones, screen backgrounds, etc. Not a major problem, sure, but one that should still be kept in mind.Probably the most important of the cons is the fact that it doesn't receive a signal in areas where other phones show at least partial strength. This is a particular issue when in rural areas or when in large buildings (for example, a casino my friends and I often meet up at shows half-strength signals on their phones - everyone has different makes/models/carriers - but this phone shows no service at all once inside).On the upside, it is a cute, lightweight little phone and would probably be a good option for children and teens, especially since it's so inexpensive.Overall, I'd say that it's serving the function for which it was purchased - a stopgap until I can finish moving - but I already plan to replace it with something louder and that can go longer without needing charged once I'm moved.

V171 review

Posted on: October 18th, 2006 by Pat Gutierrez

The good: Light, compact, easy to use functions, battery lasts long timeThe bad: No window to see time or whom is calling. Have to flip open.Summary: The phone is great and very easy to use. I've had it several years but ready to upgrade to phone with a window. Reception can be a problem especially with trees in the area.

Easy to use...

Posted on: October 7th, 2006 by Anonymous

The good: Love the easy way to get around in your phone. Spent about 30 minutes reading the manual, and about 30 minutes programing everyting into it so all toll 1 hour and I had my phone set up the way I wanted it. All the features are easy to read and program....This is my first cell phone, and was easy as pie, thank you Motorola...The bad: None yet....Summary: I would recommend this phone to beginners, and as a phone for young people (10 years and up) because of its easy use and the simple way it is explained in the manual.

Motorola V170

Posted on: October 7th, 2006 by Sharon Winkler

The good: nice lookingThe bad: no caller ID on outersideSummary: The Motorola V170 doesn't have many perks to offer. There is no caller ID on the outer flip cover. There also is no camera. I don't know if it's a phone problem or service problem but it searches often. I also get cut off alot. I really couldn't recommend it.

cell

Posted on: September 30th, 2006 by Gloria Sharpe

The good: The payment plan is perfect for me!The bad: Can't pick up/send calls in all places (mostly country areas). In one house in the same city I live-can't receive or send calls.Summary: I spent a lot of money on another phone and did not use all the minutes with no carry-over. Need to be able to use the phone in different areas at all times.

Ok i guess

Posted on: September 6th, 2006 by Erin Tieman

The good: only have to put the time on it that you want, you cant go over your minutesThe bad: doesnt always get reception half the time, not alot of featuresSummary: I bought the phone so that i can have it for emergencies, it works pretty well, i only have to put the amount of time i want on it so i cant go over my minutes and cant get charged for it. I dont get the best reception with it, which has been an issue quite a few times. I guess thats about it.
