Tracfone piggybacks off all three major carriers--t-mobile, verizon and at&t. Sprint merged with t-mobile in 2020). Love this phone.
Bought 2 so far for the grandkids. Got the most bang for the buck. Good volume from speaker.
Replaceable battery--increasingly unusual these days. Rapping the back, slightly--or opening it, and pushing in the battery better--solves.
Tracfone is a successful capitalist and more importantly saboteur. Helpline keeps disconnecting.
Took the batteries out & tried the process over 12 times. Found out that there is no sim card as mentioned in product details. Sim card appears to be damaged and very little battery life.
Wifi drains the battery quickly, so if used as a hotspot, get extra power. The battery uses a new form bl-4x which is not available anywhere. Os is different but works well enough for my needs. I still need to test it on cellular, but i'm starting to ... Read More
Engineering internally is superb with 3 flex antennae and very simple construction. Voice sounds good, on both ends.
Google assistant works well, which is good since it's about the only efficient want to use texting or email. Volte, vowifi - cool. Hotspot works fine.
A bit of buyers remorse on this one. It seems nokia has no interest in this phone or the people who buy it, which is disappointing. This early-2000's memory capability is just not practical.
Only resolution is to delete the alarm from the list everyday after it goes off. The keypad has a lazy construction, one step above rubber sheet style. You can't set the phone to use predictive text automatically. This makes it extremely difficult to ... Read More
In airplane mode, the gps locations are accurate, but this makes using web-based direction services impossible. The phone as sold does not have the api settings for using the wifi hotspot function.
This version of kiaos is very unpolished. It wants you to sign up on the kaios site to retrieve your google contacts, only to have you sign in with google and their 2 step security. Even the logo is not nokia but kaios!
