TracFone Website for $59.99. This is a triple minutes for life (TMFL) phone, meaning that the face value of top-ups is tripled. In other words, a $19.99 60 minute card will add 180 minutes to the phone.
It's a QWERTY slider that has a 1.3 MP camera, MP3 player, micro-SD card slot and a 2.2 inch screen. It's app capable and can run Opera Mini and other mobile Java apps including Facebook's. Physically It looks very similar to Verizon's Samsung Intensity.
The R455C is TracFone's third TMFL phone and the first one to use CDMA technology. That means its home network is Verizon and that it roams on other CDMA networks like US Cellular. Overall, CDMA TracFones have the best coverage of any carrier (maps), especially in rural areas.
It looks like TracFone is now offering CDMA phones pretty much everywhere there is Verizon service. Until recently, the TracFone CDMA models were only available online if you entered a zip code for an area where there is no AT&T or T-Mobile service. Now I'm seeing the R455C and other CDMA models available with almost any zip code, including cities like New York and San Francisco where they haven't been available for several years.
Here's a video that sobeko1 posted on YouTube showing the Straight Talk R355C in action.
