    Want a cheap phone and inexpensive service?

    Only use a cell phone for brief conversations?

    Then I can recommend this phone with Net10 service.

    I’ve had better phones, like the Samsung Gleam, however, I’m now paying $15.00 per month instead of $44.00 per month for the same type of usage.

    The phone itself is very functional and the menus are adequate. My biggest pet peeve with this phone coupled with Net10 service is that the browser button is the same for the back key and exit key. Press it a third time and you get a charge for the Web browser. Seems like a cheap money maker for Net10.

    Talking to people seems to be fine. I don’t discern any problems with quality or quantity when talking to people.

    I had bought the LG620G and hated it as the browser button was getting pressed even when it was in my pocket. I envisioned 3 or 4 hours of browser time without knowing it.

    I switched that phone for the Motorola since it is a flip phone and must be opened to be able to get hosed by the browser button.

    BTW: A Warning-if you switch phones with Net10 service, be prepared for an hour or two talking to customer service.

    So, if you like an inexpensive phone with a cheap plan then I would recommend the Motorola W408g

    Cheers,

    Hammer

    We were Verizon customers for many years because of their family plan and good service. We decided to switch to NET10 to save some money. We don’t need to access our email or have any of the other services that the big 3 have to offer. We only need a phone to make calls. The Moto w408G phone is just OK. It is adequate for people that only make occasional calls like we do. The phone lacks a lot of features that the expensive phones have, but the quality of the reception is as good as my other phones. If you want to send a lot of text messages don’t get this phone. The phones with a QWERTY keyboard is certainly much better. We signed up for the NET10 “Easy Minutes” for $15 month for 200 minutes, just what we need. Saves us about $50-$55 a month for 2 phones.
