The new LG CG225 GSM Camera phone is the first Tracfone folding camera phone. This phone works on the GSM networks AT & T and or T-Mobile. Previously, the Motorola C261 which is a candy bar style phone was the only camera phone available. If AT & T does not have a service in your area, you can not offer this phone in your area.
Top price minutes all the time
"Double Minute Card" from Tracfone is usually $ 50. LG 225 comes with the Doubler card already installed. This reduces the comparable price of your phone under $ 30. This reduces the cost of minutes on a new phone in half. If you buy $ 30 cards, you usually get 120 minutes. This is double on this phone so you get 240 minutes.
Tracfone is a Mobile Virtual Network Operator (MVNO) which means it does not have its own network. They buy minutes from all major mobile networks like Alltel, Verizon, AT & T, and T-Mobile instead of building their own mobile networks. They have over six million customers in the United States.
When you use this phone in the AT & T area, you can send pictures. If you are roaming with this phone, you can not send or receive pictures. You can still take them as long as your memory is not full.
The LG 225 is a simple phone
Roaming, long distance and even international long distance is the same rate, one unit per minute, as local calls with this simple travel device. The older phones were charged two units per minute when you were roaming. This varies from network operator to phone, but almost all new phones are available.
This phone can be used for online access as long as you are in the AT & T service area. If you are not in the AT & T coverage area, you can not use the internet access on this phone. Tracfone allows web access a very small slice of internet.
How does Tracfone work?
They have a simple prepaid network operator. You buy the phone and buy phone cards either from their website, phone or almost all stores like Safeway, Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Best-Buy. Each phone card gives you minutes and network activity time. For example, $ 30 one hundred and twenty minute card gives you 90 days of activity time. The 225 phone gets 240 minutes from these cards due to double features. Before leaving for minutes or hours, you need to add another map. Tracfone tells you right on the screen of the phone how many minutes you have left and how long your phone will be active.
How much does Tracfone use?
Minutes cost between twenty cents and forty cents each without having a double card. Then it costs minutes between ten and twenty cents. When you buy in larger quantities you get cheaper minutes. This is the only Tracfone that comes with the double card, which earns half the price all the time. Minutes for this phone cost between 10 and 20 cents depending on the size card you buy.
Tracfone is the only mobile phone company that offers phones for sale in all zip codes in the United States. They have most major companies able to purchase minutes on their networks. Tracfone and NET10 are the only prepaid mobile phones that can turn to different cellular networks. All other prepaid phones from Verizon, T-Mobile, Alltel will only work on one network or if they allow roaming it will cost more than 60 cents per minute.
Tracfone LG CG225 Review
This is the best quality phone that Tracfone has released so far. The Motorola W370 is a nice phone too but it does not come with a camera. I have found the camera even though I never send pictures almost. I like to take pictures and have them on my phone. This is the best value for Track phone because the double card is already installed. View Pictures of Tracfone LG 225 and more prepaid network operators.
