i just got it yesterday and i love it

very reliable and durable

Great phone, absolutely no customer service, though

I have owned and enjoyed a TracFone Nokia 5125 for over 5 years and I just love the phone and the availability of analog and digital in one phone. The analog works great when I am in the Georgia and Florida outback areas, where no digital signals exist. The phone works great, but, on a scale of 0 to 10, the TracFone customer service rates about a negative five (-5). I just spent about an hour and a half on the "customer service" line with TracFone to try and transfer my minutes to a new TracFone Nokia 5125 (to replace an aging, tired 5125), was transferred to more than 5 "customer service managers" and still have not gotten any customer service. Great phone, great signal, but, you will get no help from TracFone customer service, at all. I am currently looking for a different provider of TDMA service in my area that can use the Nokia 5125 in TDMA mode. Less

Ummm......

Well i have the 5125 Nokia tracphone and i am not very happy cause like it dosnt charge and work!!

Great in New Mexico Mountains and on Mexican Border

I've had about six Tracfones over the years. I hang out in the New Mexico Mountains (near Mountainair), in Big Bend, and along the Texas-Mexico border (Presidio and East). I carry the 5125, an LG something, and a Nokia 1100. The 5125 (TDMA/Analog) often works when the others don't. I just want a ph...More

I carry the 5125, an LG something, and a Nokia 1100. The 5125 (TDMA/Analog) often works when the others don't. I just want a phone that will get me a tow truck, and a cop, or border control agent. It's the technology. Less

If you decide to get a tracfone, please email me for a quick referral before activating it- we each will get 120 free minutes from the 'refer a friend' program. I'll also send you the simple instructions to follow. I've used Tracfone for quite a while, so i should be able to answer any questions you might have. ps even if you have activated in the last few weeks i should be able to get us the free minutes.

Once I had and now I miss it

It was my first cell phone and it had the best performance, especially out of the city

it works but big size

It has a great comunication capability, but it is a little big

Good "Old School" Wireless

I purchased a 5125 through Tracfone wireless in Dec '03, and here's my quick review: Plus: sturdy unit, long battery life, recharges quickly, good "Old School" phone features. Minus: "Old School" phone type might turn off most cell phone shoppers, not very compact (even in your pocket), no polyphonic ringtones. A quick review of the Tracfone service: Plus: no committments, pay for only the minutes you use, extremely quick setup, reasonable rates. Minus: tech support via phone can be very trying, code-entering will annoy the younger set, you can't use certain tracfones for your calling area. Less

Not Bad

This was my first cellphone, it has good signal, 3 games, amd some cool ringtones, i just wish it was a bit smaller

Very poor customer service

A phone is only as good as the customer service. The customer service for the tracfone is completely worthless. I have called a number of times only to speak to someone who is either completely illiterate, completely clueless or completely incompetent. I have been repeatedly put on hold, asked the same questions and have been cut off only to have to call back. When asked to speak to a supervisor I am told that they are busy. The phone itself is adequate but a bit oversized for my taste. I could not recommend this phone or service at this time. Less
