I believe all the new ANDROID phones do; the LG83C came with a 4 GB mini SSD card; they can be replaced up to 32 GB I understand

Yes it has an mp3 player. And it requires having an microsd card installed with the mp3 fies on the card.

On the Tracfone website it has a tutorial, here's the link
http://tracfone.deviceanywhere.com/straighttalk/home.seam?custId=STHUH868C

I think the reason the Huawei user guide doesn't mention is that the MP3 player is not a included by Huawei and it's a Google Services app. It's already installed on the phone.

The packaging does not state it has MP3 capabilities nor is it mentioned in the 85 page instruction manual.
If anyone else finds that it does perhaps they will give another answer to this question.

If you take your 19.99 prepaid phone card and divide that number by 3 months (90) days service your paying around 7.00 per month.

answer 3
If you intend to buy full-price airtime cards from walmart.com or tracfone.com you won't be paying $7/mo. Someone who is new to Tracfone has to do their homework to figure this out.

Tracfone $7/mo is not deceiving but I think there should be a webpage dedicated to explaining how to get that awesome $7/mo rate. I've been with Tracfone/Straight Talk since 1999 and I think it's the best prepaid service.

And I agree with Relin. This phone is CAPABLE of $7 a month and that would come with 100 minutes/mo based on having two additional services. First, the phone needs an upgrade called "double minutes for life of the phone" and that can be purchased for $25. Second, you must sign up online at tracfone.com for the Value Plan which requires a credit card and you will buy 100 minutes/mo (that's 50 minutes doubled).

And the $7/mo goes up from there. If you talk more than 300 minutes/mo Tracfone is not the best prepaid choice and you should look at Straight Talk for $30/mo. 1000 minutes.

Yes and no. Technically, the $7 a month advertising can be applied to any Tracfone that triples minutes. The amount is based on an average with the purchase of a 60 minute airtime card every 90 days. So you're really paying $20 up front for the card which can be averaged out to $6.67 ($7 rounded) a month. Just marketing.

Tracfone plan

Does this phone come with triple minutes?

answer 2
Yes, but be aware that these new Android smartphones use a new 3-bucket system that triples your minutes, texts, and data whenever you add airtime.

For example, if you were to purchase a 60 minute card and add it to this phone, you would receive 180 minutes, 180 texts, and 180 MB of data.

To explain further, here are three things you should know about these new Android phones:

Text messages are no longer deducted from minutes and are now counted individually.

Promotional codes for minutes do not work on the new Android phones.

Tracfone sells data cards alongside these phones. These only serve to refill or add to your data bucket. However, unlike with the purchase of a minute card, the amount on these data cards do not triple.

Why can you buy a data card when the data comes off your minutes. Is it cheaper?

Just as an example, you get 360 MB of data with a $30 120 minute card (with triple minute smartphones). You get 2 GB of data for $50. The data card is cheaper for data but would only be helpful if you have minimal wifi access and need a lot of data.

answer 2
You've misunderstood. This device can access internet via the phone's data connection or it can use a WiFi signal.

Data connection will burn minutes so leave it turned off.

WiFi signal is provided by your home network or free hot spots at McDonalds restaurants, schools, libraries, hotels, etc etc etc.

I wouldn't think that any apps use phone minutes, but may use data depending upon the app (e.g., Yelp would use data for searching restaurants). Any app that uses data will get the data through a wifi network so wouldn't have to use the prepaid data. You can turn the 3G data usage off to prevent any data usage that you don't want.

Yes it will burn minutes if you have the data connection turned on.

If you turn off the data connection there's no charge. And if you use the WiFi connection there's no charge.
