Tracfone W376 with Bluetooth

Tracfone Motorola W376g

The latest phone from Tracfone is the Motorola W376g.

The New Tracfone Motorola W376 with BlueTooth 2.0 enabled. The W376 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 Tracfone will be offering this phone in your area.

This new phone appears to be 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 Chin.

The Moto W376g is a Single Rate Tracfone

All the calls you make in your local area or out are one unit per minute. You will only pay one unit per minute for local, long distance and roaming calls. Tracfone also owns Net10 and they are the only prepaid cell phone companies that offer roaming for no extra charge. Most Prepaid phones do not offer roaming. If they do they will charge you up to fifty cents a minute for roaming.

Tracfone Minutes

Tracfone often gives out Bonus codes to get free minutes when you add a minute card to your phone.  This is the best spot to buy Tracfone Minutes and  use  Tracfone Promo Codes to get free Minutes.

International Tracfone Calls

Calls to over sixty international areas will only cost you one unit per minute with the Tracfone W376g. Check out Tracfone International Calling at the Tracfone.com web site.  Find out the differences between Tracfone and Net10.

Moto W376 Text Messages

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.

DMFL is standard on W376g

The new bonus program from Tracfone is the Unlimited Double minutes for life. DMFL cards are available from the Tracfone web site for $50. Then any time as long as you own that phone you will get twice the minutes stated on the card. This DMFL Bonus plan comes with your Moto W376g.

Battery life on the Tracfone W376g

The W376g uses the BQ50 Lithium Ion battery. This is a fairly large capacity 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

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 Tracfone 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

I really like the heft and feel of the new Moto W376g. The W376 is the same size and feel as the W370 and the W375. Large enough when unfolded it comfortably fits your face to talk (even if you have a large head).  It comfortably fits into your pocket.It folds small enough that it easily fits in your pocket.
