    New Trac & Net10 phones appear!

    New Trac & Net10 phones appear!

    2 new LG phones (420G and 320G) and 2 new Samsung phones (T155G and T105G) have appeared on Trac’s “activate phones” page…





    Net10 will be adding what appears to be the Samsung Freeform (R355C) very soon…

    Wow, a blackberry? Never thought I'd see the day.

    Edit: ok not really a blackberry. Looks to have the same specs as the t401/r451. It is a CDMA model though, no?

    Yes, it is a CDMA phone. If you head over to the MetroPCS site you can get a better look at it's cousin, the Freeform. I had the Freeform for about a month before upgading to Metro's Code, and it's a pretty darn good phone.

    How's the voice quality and battery life?

    I wonder if Straight Talk will get phones like these?

    That's a silly question, as these phones are not on the market yet.

    I believe he was referring to the Freefrom Sweeper had.

    I think he was referring to the fact that Sweeper had the cousin Freefrom from MetroPCS. He wanted to know what the voice quality and battery life was like based off of the Freeform and not the Net10 version.

    I'm sure people still want to see a qwerty for Tracfone and still want to know if ST's getting any love too?

    yea, thats me. I'm no expert, but it seems like they should. I may be a bit uninformed, but st and net10 both have qwertys, and they're similar companies.

    The 355 is intriguing, I'm exited to try that one out. The LG's and Samsungs for Trac seem pretty ho-hum. If the Samsungs are anything like the T101g, I don't think Trac should even bother.

    I'm still interested to see where the LG 620g and 920g listed on the FCC site will end up, and what features they will include. I wouldn't be surprised if one or both of those are headed for Net10 Unlimited, but I have no rational basis for that speculation.

    It looks like they are keeping Tracfone as the "bare bones" of the Tracfone family. Nice to see Net10's phones are getting nicer, though. Who knows? They might get an iPhone by 2018.

    Net10's formula of cheaper minutes and costlier phones (slightly) and Trafone's cheaper phones and costlier minutes (without all that dmfl/bonus codes/transfer tricks jazz) kind of leave the way for all the better/fancier handsets (like the qwerty) to find their way to Net10 before Tracfone eh?

    Or they never find their way to Tracfone at all. Eventually, I think they will have a different slate of phones for each service, without duplication. Tracfone will get the cheap, crappy phones with no features and Net10 will get the Black Berries and nicer phones. As for Straight Talk, all their phones will be in the $329 range and be very nice but over featured for the service.
