I don't think tracfone has a cell network. For their Android phones, I think they use Verizon, and for their other phones, I think they use multiple cell companies' networks, and pay for usage.

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.

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

answer 2
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.

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.
