Glad to hear its a decent phone.

I have had several Moto w376g's and the build quality is so-so and the interface is S L O W.

I currently have the LG 290C on Tracfone and it's excellent. Build quality is excellent, the UI is fast, sound is good, and screen is good. I have one line strictly so that I can have an active on U.S. Cellular. There is no data access so I don't have MMS or web, but no big deal. USC prepaid is very very expensive, and this is the way I get around that :)

Battery life appears to be good. After the initial charge when I bought it, it went 10 days (being powered on all day, powered off overnight) before the low-battery indicator flashed today. :D

There is one handy feature on the 420G. Under the Settings/Call menu, there is a selection "Call reject".

Apparently, when this is turned on and the secondary setting is set to "Unregistered", if there is a phone number listed in the phone's Contacts, the phone will let that call go through. If the call is coming from any other phone number, the phone will display "Call Reject" instead of the number of the incoming call and will automatically redirect the call to voice mail. I like it. :)

Earlier today, I discovered this same model selling in a local Family Dollar store, but as it had P5 on the label, the phone in this particular package will activate on T-Mobile.

The phones are identical, same features and menu selections. The new line was live within a few minutes of activating it via TracFone's web site.

One difference I noticed is that the "E" for the EDGE data speed, does not appear until a few seconds after the web browser is launched, whereas with the AT&T TracFone, the "E" is always present on the main and front screens. That could be due to differences between the two networks.

The 2126 was a decent little phone, but sooo obsolete as far as features.

Walmart has an LG flip phone for TracFone's sister service, Straight Talk, it looks like a decent phone. Might be one that TracFone could offer in CDMA areas at some point, but that particular model does not have a camera.
