The perfect complement to Tracfone prepaid wireless service, the sleek, lightweight Motorola W260g offers an affordable way to stay in touch with family and friends across town and around the globe via voice communication and text messaging. Offering the best of the basics for work and play, the W260g provides easy access to your text messages, a unique external display with light-up icons that signal new messages, speakerphone, 2.5mm headset jack, and up to 6.5 hours of talk time.
Tracfone provides nationwide prepaid wireless service using the nation's leading cellular providers to create a national footprint covering 99 percent of the U.S. population. This gives you connectivity everywhere cellular service is available. You can use your Tracfone across the U.S. and if you move, you can relocate your wireless number with just a phone call.
You can buy bundles of minutes (which must be used within a set time limit of between 90 to 365 days) from the Tracfone web site on your home PC or directly from your phone's web browser. For example, if you purchase a block of 120 minutes of airtime, you'll need to use that within 90 days of your first use. When you buy additional airtime minutes, your Tracfone service is extended automatically by another 90 days. Tracfone also offers international long distance calling to over 60 international destinations (including Argentina, Brazil, China, Mexico, most European countries, and many more), which deducts the same amount of minutes from your phone as when you make calls to destinations within the U.S.
This phone ships with a number of handy Tracfone services, including free voice mail, free caller ID, and free call waiting. And perhaps most importantly, the integrated TracFone Airtime Balance Display shows you how much airtime you've used and how much is left, so you can control your costs. You must activate your cell phone before use either by calling the Tracfone toll-free number or going to the Tracfone web site.
Weighing in at an ultra-light 3.3-ounces, the super-slim W260g fits comfortably in your hand and flips open effortlessly to reveal a large and vivid full-color 128 x 128 screen and streamlined keypad. Instead of an external LCD, the W260g sports a series of unique, light-up icons that signal new messages, low battery, and other events. Most of the phone's features and on-screen menus are controlled by a five-way center button on the handset's backlit control pad. Use the phone's stereo-compatible 2.5mm headset jack with your favorite stereo earphones or hands-free headset.
The W260g's internal phonebook can hold up to 500 contacts and includes picture phonebook options, and it will display the last 10 dialed/received/missed calls. It supports 32-chord polyphonic ringtones, and you can switch it over to vibrate mode when you need to keep things silent.
This Motorola phone includes the innovative CrystalTalk technology, which automatically accounts for background noise during a call and adjusts the audio quality based on ambient noise conditions to provide the optimal conversational experience. CrystalTalk also reduces the volume of the background noise picked up by the microphone during a call, making it possible to be more easily heard over the phone while in a noisy environment.
