The Tracfone LG500G prepaid phone by LG has a lot of good features, and it’s cheap! Around $17 for the phone, which gives you a candybar-style phone with a full QWERTY keyboard on the bottom and a graphic LCD screen on the top. It has a few apps including calculator, calendar, texting and a few others. It’s not a true smartphone, but for a prepaid phone (with no sort of contract) you can’t beat it for economy. The screen is ok, not as clear as an iPhone or Android phone, but usable for most people. With double minutes, if you pay for 200 for example, you get 400, and they take a while to expire. If you like to text, or just have a lot of phone numbers to enter, the keyboard is very helpful.

    I just recently purchased the lg500g and could not have been happier. My old phone, the lg800g, was a touchscreen without a gravity sensor which made it REALLY hard to text on, which I do a lot of. My new phone is great except it either doesn`t have voice commands or voice recordings, or they are just really, really hard to find. If they just aren`t there, then I think they should be, and if it`s just that I can`t find them, then I think that they should be easier to find. Oh yeah, and also the camera is really hard to find too. but overall it`s a great phone! I haven`t had this phone long, but I`ve had it long enough to know that I would most likely give it 4.5 out of 5 stars.
