I've had this for two years already. I love it. Customer service is great. I tell everyone about it and they want to bash it, saying its a scam. What's a scam is when people buy a two year contract that's more expensive than a pre-paid and get stuck with an overpriced bill because you miscalculated your minutes. For $20.00 a month, with 500 minutes and 1000 texts is unheard of. It's so outstanding there isn't a company to go near it. Plus the phones are refurbished which means there is no problems with the original version. You can spend a crap load of money keeping up with the latest phone thats going to be left in your pocket and outdated in 6 months. Seriously, I used to have an expensive phone for what? It stayed in my pocket most of the time. Nobody was like, cool you got such and such phone. The only time I would play games was when I was on the bus...a bus! How absurd. Get a good phone and a cheap plan. Thats called a smart consumer.

Yes, they were double billing me, but by using their online customer service they immediately corrected the problem and promptly gave me a refund. Other than that, I have an LG phone that works very well. Consider me now completely satisfied.

I bought this phone for my daughter as a 12 year old birthday present. To show that she was responsible enough for a cell phone I had gotten her a toy phone a year before and told her that if she could hand it to me on her 12th birthday I would get her a real one. I'm not saying it was in the best shape but she managed to hold onto the toy and away we went to get her real phone. Within a week, more like 3 days, the handset had so many problems we had to return it. The store wasn't able to help and getting through to customer service was a nightmare. I was told that it would take up to six weeks to replace the handset. When her replacement handset finally came in it wasn't the same but by then she didn't care anymore. Used the phone for a few weeks and then misplaced it. She recently found it and she was so excited. Went to the store and purchased minutes for it only to find out that her phone won't accept them because it has been too long. I've tried to reach customer service for 11 days now - sent 4 messages through their customer service portal - the customer service phone number sends you in circles with an automated recording and when I looked up the company's office number it goes to a fax machine. Now I've got a useless $20 card and a very disappointed child. I don't know how I could be more displeased with this company.
