Not sure what you get that makes this worth a couple of Benjemins when our stripped Glory was a single Grant but here is the info we can offer.
I’m no cell expert but have some info on the service providers that may be helpful. First a note about the Huawei Glory. I use Amazon extensively but like the easy return options at Wally’s (a last resort, love hate relationship). They have it at half price, making it a super value.
Good customer support and a good phone
Biggest problem is the on-screen keyboard. Even laid “landscape” my small size 8 fingers hit wrong keys about 1 of 4 entries. A stylus is a must for me. A 32GB SD is less than ten bucks from our Asian friends, making the total package unbeatable unless you are a hi-dollar, gadget freak.. This is my 6th cell and am happy with the technology strides over the years.
Our experience with service providers: Although Tracfone is new to us, I am impressed, with their support, the phone and with their flexible system of refill cards. Not a major cell phone user, we wanted a cost effective, flexible “no contract” phone. In our opinion Tracfone is the best available and here is why.
We have used US Cellular, T-Mobile and Tracone as no contract and Verizon, AT&T and Sprint as contract. But this only concerns our experience with the three no-contract folks.
First US Celular: as their dealer they cost me almost $200 and it was a bitter learning experience in dealing with a company that does not give a toot about people. I cannot recommend them in any way.
T-Mobile has poor reception in our area of N.C. but our main problems are their incredibly poor customer support and refill plan. When they changed their refill system it wound up costing us almost $300 in lost minutes.Read more ›
