The Tracfone Motorola W376 now comes with BlueTooth 2.0 enabled. This phone is a GSM phone that works on AT&T or T-Mobile networks. If you have good coverage in your area by AT&t then the phone you get will be set to work on the At&T Network.
The W376 looks like it is the little brother to the best selling Motorola Razr. The new W376g is thicker but narrower. The keyboard is the same flat design as the Razr. Both the Tracfone W376 and the Razr have the distinctive Motorola Chin. The Chin makes these phones easier to hold on to for one handed texting.
The Moto W376g is a Single Rate Phone
Calls made anywhere in the United States are one unit per minute. You will only pay one unit per minute for local, long distance and roaming calls. Tracfone and Sister company NET10 are the only prepaid cell phone companies in the United States that have reasonable roaming rates. Most Prepaid phones do not offer roaming. If another prepaid company does offer roaming you will pay up to 60 cents per minute.
International Tracfone Calls
Calls to over sixty international areas will only cost you one unit per minute with the W376g. Check out International Calling at the Tracfone.com web site. Most of Mexico, South America, and Canada can all be called for one unit per minute.
Tracfone W376g texting rates are .3 units per text in and out. This is a lot better than the .5 units per text on some of the older Tracfones.
Unlimited Double Minutes is standard on W376g
Tracfone has come out with a new bonus program. You can purchase a Double Minutes for Life card (DMFL) for $50 and install it on your phone. Then any time as long as you own that phone you will get twice the minutes [on|stated on the Tracfone Minute Card. This Unlimited Double minutes for life currently comes with your Moto W376g.
Battery life on the Tracfone W376g
The W376g uses the BQ50 Lithium Ion battery. This is a large Battery so the battery life is should be very good. The battery should last up to 10 days between charges. This depends on your usage and where you are. If you are on the fringe of cell coverage your phone will work a lot harder to keep coverage and go through your charge quicker. .
Tracfone Bluetooth Phone
The first Bluetooth enabled phone from Tracfone is the Motorola W376. You will now be able to use a Bluetooth 2.0 headset with your Motorola W376g. It is safer to drive totally hands free which you can do with the new phone
Web Access and Downloading Ring Tones
The web access allowed by Tracfone with their phones is pretty limited but that may be changing. Many options for searching the web just cannot be done yet.
Moto W376 Feel
The new W376 has a nice solid feel. I like the keyboard and the heft of the phone. The W376 is the same size and feel as the W370 and the W375. It is big enough when unfolded it comfortably fits your face to talk (even if you have a big head). It easily fits into your pocket when folded.
