"Upon Further Review... ST Ain't So Bad"
If you're an adult and just need a "phone" with the usual features, and not a "toy" to play with (text, games, internet, etc.), you will find nothing better! Great size, features, sound, reception, battery life, screen, visibility, etc., etc.... you will be delighted with the 220C! I've had mutliple "phones" and the 220C is the best I've had.
ST is a great "carrier," at a great price - but, that's all it is. If you need CS you should look elsewhere. It's great if you're tech savy and can find your own solutions. It's terrible if you're not / can't!
Be sure to buy your phone at Walmart - so, if you have any issues, you can just take it back and get another, or get a refund. My first 220C had a defective "right soft key." I simply and quickly returned it and replaced it at Walmart in less than 2 hours - rather than days, if I'd purchased it online. It's worth the $20 premium for the warranty support from a reliable, local vendor!
I did find a TracFone CS - "the best" CS rep I've ever had from any company (cell phones, PC's, etc.) - she has helped me resolve some very difficult issues (ST taking my number without notice, etc.), and always gets my new phone / service up in minutes not days (including porting my number). If it had not been for her, I would have left ST long ago! However, I will not share her name and number with you - since I don't want to overwhelm her, or TracFone, with voluminous ST CS calls. ST needs to "get their act together," or sadly... they may not be with us long!
But... for inexpensive, basic service... the LG 220C and ST are... GREAT!
