    You may very well have a bad phone and need it replaced.

    Tmark,
    Lots of unanswered questions. Could it be a bad phone you have?
    Cheers!

    In case anyone is in the market for a Valet, Best Buy has them on sale for $79.99 this week.

    That's a good price. Paid 10.00 more for mine. Works well but seems to have a weak WiFi antenna at times? Also discovered that the screen is sensitive to cold temps.
    Had it out in the low 40 degree temps Friday morning and the screen would not respond to touch until it warmed up. Otherwise it seems to be a pretty good entry level phone.
    And nice forum here :-)

    Could you extrapolate on the WiFi issue. You say it is weak at times, so you could be a certain distance away from the router and it can vary at any given time or it is weak when you are at times further away from the router? Thanks.

    Ok. The router is upstairs from my living room. And some days it has a good connection from my chair and some days it has poor to no connection, or in goes in and out while all the other equipment connected to the WiFi maintains a good signal.
    I have to put it in airplane mode and then back out or reboot the phone to get it to reconnect.

    Thanks for the info, shame TF brought out such deficient devices.

    Hsn.com deal is a better value IMHO.

    The WiFi is weak, but the phone works pretty good otherwise, and the camera is better than most on cheap phones like this.
    I would not expect Tracfone to have any kind of hi end phones now or ever. Straight Talk I would expect to have some decent hardware but Tracfone I am happy they have what they have.

    Do you consider auto-focus, a flash and maybe 1GB+ internal RAM high end? Oh, and no wifi connectivity or internal clock problems inherent in the device, I guess that is free of charge?

    I never said it was hi end did I? I just said it was a pretty good phone for Tracfone, or better than I might have expected from them.

    Well, I don't know who androidfonefan is but they were right about my not having said anything about me thinking the Valet is a hi end phone.
    I know it is not a hi end phone. But what can be expected for 100.00 or so dollars.
    Hi end phone would be a HTC One or something like that.
