The screen is microscopic; it can only display a few lines at a time.

I have been using tracfone for seven months and I am satisfied with it. I have light cell phone usage and it costs me less than 15 dollars a month. The signal is good, no matter in the city of Boston or in the countryside of PA. I have not dealt with their custom service though. Tracfone has a promotion of 120 free minutes if you get an invitation from other users before you activate it. Let me know if you need one. I will send you an invitation instantly. And I can help you even if you have already activated it recently.

The C139 is the cheapest model in Tracfone's lineup. It's a very good basic phone that gives you good voice clarity and easy text messaging. Because Tracfone doesn't have a lot of services to offer (which isn't a bad thing for people who only want basic cellular service), this phone doesn't give you music downloads or live TV (which on other carriers are mostly misleading hype anyway). The color screen is small but good-quality. The only thing I don't like is Tracfone's 60-day refill polic: you must refill every 60 days to keep your account active; otherwise you forfeit your number and balance. Other prepaid providers like Speak Out Wireless (from 7-Eleven) give you one full year of usage.

This review is for the phone unit itself - Not the TracFone service.

Folks, stay away from this phone. I liked it a lot for the first 60 days, then it 'died' and lost my call information, my minutes and everything else. TracFone says that they are having big problems with the C139. They're sending me another one, but that doesn't make me comfortable. What happens when it dies?

Meanwhile, I'm without a phone for over a week now.

Save yourself some headaches. Pick another phone.

I needed to buy my mother a new cell phone so I could cancel my account with my existing provider and still keep the same number. I was a Tracfone user a few years ago while I was in college, and I found their services to be good. I went to the store and saw this phone priced very low; not so long ago you had to pay $70 for a Tracfone, and now they have them for less than $20. I decided that since she wasn't going to use the cell phone very much, this would be a good way to go until I could find something else.

I bought this phone because it was cheap, and I could get it activated right away. This phone is very basic; most of the features that are now common place are missing on this model. The screen is microscopic; it can only display a few lines at a time. There are no polyphonic ringtones, and it can only hold 100 entries in the phonebook. They keys are so firm that they are hard to press down, and the menus are tedious and somewhat counter-intuitive. It is very sturdy, but also a little heavier than should be for a phone its size. There is no web browsing like there is on other phones. The text messaging feature is really tricky to use. I think Tracfone has good service, but in many ways, this phone feels like a step back from where Tracfone was going to.

I have noticed that Tracfone has moved away from using the CDMA network and towards using the GSM network. I don't think that is bad, it just means slightly less coverage overall. Tracfone's service is not bad. I think this phone is a decent choice for someone who is wanting a very basic phone to talk on. It is less than $20, so I can't complain too much. However, if there is any way that you can afford it, I suggest if you are going to use Tracfone's service, go with a pricier phone with more features.

I got 200 tracfone minutes from my sister this past christmas. I went out and picked up a phone, seeing as it was only $15 anyway. When i turned on the phone i got an 'insert sim' message. i went through troubleshooting and did everything it told me to. i then called and after a few robots, talked to someone. they told me it was normal and would work by tomorrow. he set up my account and put in my minutes while i was talking to him. days went by and still nothing. i called again and they forced troubleshooting on me. i couldnt get one answer out of anyone so i talked to a supervisor and they sent me a new sim card. now i have this new sim card but all my info is on my old one. i talked to someone for about an hour, putting in codes that accomplished nothing. they told me i had to wait 2 weeks so they could file an investigation on my case. i needed to talk to a supervisor to add minutes to my phone and the entire time i was treated like a liar and called ma'am every 2 sentences despite my obvious deep voice. the entire process of being able to have a quick and affordable phone took over a month. overall their service is terrible, and their product hardly works. my mother also has one and i tried to set up her account online but it wouldnt go through. i needed to call and put in a handful of codes again. after all this trouble I can only make outgoing calls. I was able to get a call earlier today... but when i called it half an hour ago and when my friend called me the other night, there was a message saying i'm not taking calls. also, if you ever want to set up a voicemail or anything on your phone, you have to use YOUR minutes. you cant use a LAN line or anything.Read more ›
