The New Motorola W376 from Tracfone is Bluetooth® 2.0 enabled. The W376 is another GSM phone and is only offered if you are in At&t (formerly Cingular) coverage area.
This new phone looks to be the little brother to the best selling Motorola Razr. The new W376g is thicker but narrower. This phone is the same as the Tracfone W370 and Net10 W375 with more features enabled. The keyboard is the same flat design as the Razr.
Tracfone LG 225 next to the Nokia 1600 and Motorola W370.
The calls you make anywhere in the United States with this phone are one unit per minute. You will pay one unit per minute for local, long distance and roaming calls. The minutes are always rounded up so if you talk for one minute and 5 seconds you will pay for two minutes. Tracfone Wireless 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 they do they will charge you up to fifty cents a minute for roaming.
You can buy a Tracfone from many of the major chain stores including Walmart, Staples, Best Buy, Safeway and others. The Tracfone.com web site always has phones on sale. The web site always has the largest selection and often they have web only specials that are not available in stores. The only problem with buying from the web site is you will have to wait 3 or 4 days to get your phone. Get a new Motorola phone for as little as $14.99 from the Tracfone.com Web Site.
Cell Phone Calls to over sixty International Areas will only cost you one unit per minute. You can make calls to sixty different international areas for one unit per minute with the Tracfone W376g. Check out Tracfone International Calling at the Tracfone.com web site.
The new W376g texting charges 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 .
To use the Motorola W376 as an FM radio you need to plug in an earphone. The wire to the earphone works as the radio antenna. You can listen from the speaker on the phone or through the earphone. You will not be charged minutes while using the radio.
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 stated on the card. This Unlimited Double minutes for life currently comes with your Moto W376g. If you are going to use a Tracfone you will save a lot of money on minutes if you have DMFL.
The W376g uses the BQ50 Lithium Ion battery. This is a fairly large capacity Battery so the battery life is should be very good. It is rated to last up to 10 days between charges. This is dependent on how much you talk and how much time it is searching for a signal if you are out of cell range.
The Motorola W376 as built for Tracfone now supports Bluetooth® 2.0 Standard. This is the first Tracfone that has Bluetooth enabled. You will now be able to use a Bluetooth 2.0 headset with your Tracfone Motorola W376g. This is really handy for talking while driving.
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.
I really like the solid feel of the new Moto W376g. The W376 is the same size and feel as the Motorola W370 and the W375 with a camera and Bluetooth added. It is large enough when you unfold it that it comfortably fits your face to talk (even if you have a big head). It folds small enough that it easily fits in your pocket.
