Samsung R455C, a CDMA phone with slide-out QWERTY keyboard, is added to TracFone. TracFone adds Samsung R455C with Triple Minutes for Life, which means that every refill you buy will have three times more minutes for as long as you have your phone. It is available for $59.99 with no contract.
Besides using Verizon’s coverage and having Triple Minutes for Life included, Samsung R455C has rather decent specs as slide-out QWERTY keyboard, a 2.2-inch screen, 1.3-megapixel camera, MP3 player, micro-SD card slot, Mobile Web access and Bluetooth. Users can send and receive text and picture messages, can record voice sound, dial with voice or use hands-free speaker.
Straight Talk and NET10 also have Samsung R455C included in their lineups but at quite different prices. Straight Talk sells it for $89.99 while NET10 offers it for $79.99.
