throwaway phone with a single core CPU. the metro pcs deals offered much better phones. looking at the specs alone compared to deals you could get, i'd pass.

This is one of the few smartphones that does not have auto focus for the camera.

I don't think any of the smartphones that Tracfone offers have auto focus cameras:
LG Optimus Dynamic 2 (L39C)
Samsung Galaxy Centura (738)
Huawei Glory

Sad selection; you're better off with an older phone (e.g., Moto Droid 3 or X2) and their BYOP program.

Yes, please update us; if this thread gets buried I'd even appreciate a PM. I've heard mostly horror stories about the BYOP program.

I don't think you can do that. The Tracfone BYOP program is CDMA (no sim card) only:

For low-use, this is a good deal to get a Jellybean smartphone on Verizon. The phone is low quality, but reliable for calls/texting/email/maps/browsing. Hopefully Tracfone will get their act together with the BYOP program and offer some new smartphones with better than 3-year old technology, though.

Exactly right. When it gets here, I'm going to try a droid x2 on the Tracfone BYOP. Between Verizon / Tracfone's mysterious acceptance procedures and finding a formerly acitvated (and in good standing) phone; I'm in it for the adventure as much as getting the phone activated.
