See old thread for general introduction to free Safe-Link cell phone service...

For people who already have the service, the way Safe-Link solves many phone problems appears to be to send out a new replacement even when the original phone is less than a year or two old and may function OK.

My first Safe-Link phone (a Motorola) arrived activated with the wrong name and area code. It worked fine, but instead of reseting it to my name and area code, they sent out a new one (a Samsung). Both were bar phones. The Samsung did not work as well as the Motorola. I called Lafe-Link to say that the Samsung only works if you talk standing perfectly still and with the AC plugged in, and they said they would fix it by sending out another free replacement.

The Safe-Link phones pictured on the Safe-Link site are all simple bar phones...

But this time what was sent was a SGH-T340G Samsung Slider with more modern features than any of the pictured bar phones including a MicroSD card slot.

As described on the web site...

"This Tracfone is more than just technologically advanced. It’s also attractive and easy to use. Just check out the sleek slider form, easy-to-read display and large, easy-to-press keyboard buttons. You’ll be impressed.

Java MP3 Player
The T340g makes it easy to enjoy your music on the go. And the Java technology makes this more than just a basic music player, whether you’re listening, downloading or just showing off.

Stereo Bluetooth® Enabled
Drive hands-free, talk and listen to music wire-free – that’s the beauty of Bluetooth® Wireless Technology. Want some more beauty? You can do it all in stereo.

1.3 MP Camera and Video Recorder
Never miss a photo op again. 1.3 megapixels means you’ll be able to take beautiful pictures, worthy of printing and sharing. And with a video recorder on your phone, you won’t miss any action, either.

Text, Picture and Video Messaging
Now you can be as connected with your friends and family as you want to be. You’ll be able to send a text, send a photo or send a video. You can even send an Audio PostcardSM.

Java Enabled
Java allows you to play online games, chat with your friends, view images, set alarm clock, calculator mode, notes & schedules and much more.

The YMMV part is that subscribers cannot pick what model phone is sent out. But if you have an old phone with any issues, it is probably worth giving Safe-Link a call.

And rather than dealing with them multiple times on the phone you can just go buy any Tracfone branded handset and have them transfer your service to it. Sometimes free isn't worth dealing with certain CS multiple times.
