I just got a Motorola V170 Prepaid Phone (Tracfone) for my friend. It took about 10 minutes to get it all set up. It has 120 minutes on it and is good till the end of December. It will be used by an 18 year old however so the minutes will likely be gone long before then even if only used for “emergencies”. After all an 18 year old sees emergencies in not being able to meet his friends..he will however have to refill the minutes himself. That will hopefully help him learn the difference between an inconvenience and an emergency. Lets not hold our breaths though..just in case.
