I lost $55.00 in minutes because I did not renew at the same time I renewed the months before. My advice is to renew a day early so you will not lose your minutes. They also went from 3 months to a two month plan. I will be going to another carrier.

This company is a hopeless merry-go-round of promises and inaction. You will go days or weeks without a phone while they provide you lip service. You can't get ahold of anyone with any accountability. Beware!

Gee … WOW! I just read the reviews on this and am dumbfounded by the hate. I purchased this phone AND bought a service plan and have had ZERO problems with them or their customer service reps. This is my second phone with them – the first being purchased sometime ago in another part of this country. I am so happy with the service and what I am getting for 39.99 flat rate plan that I am here looking to buy a phone from them better than the flip I currently have. FYI: This company saved my butt recently via Hurricane Sandy and they allowed me to stay in contact with my children. PS I hate cell phones … but this company and their simple product line I give a 5 Star rating and 2 thumbs up.
