Tracfone Motorola W376 Battery Issues

The Tracfone Motorola W376 Battery seems to have a fairly short life. The battery Tracfone sends in this phone is the same battery that is shipped with the Tracfone W370 and the Net10 W375.


Simple cure to your W376 problems. Buy a Motorola W370 with 450/900 minute card for $79.99. This will give you a spare Moto W376 Battery and charger. This is the same price you will pay for the card alone. This is the lowest price per minute Tracfone card and it comes with a free phone.

Then you have an extra charger to keep the batteries charged and you have a spare battery for your W376.

Tracfone Motorola W376 Bluetooth

The Bluetooth on this phone is intentionally designed to only mate with headphones. It seems to sync easily to most headsets.

You might be able to get it to sync with your car but you will not be able to get the car system to make phone calls with your phone.

Apparently Tracfone is scared that customers will end up with the ability to transfer ringtones and pictures from their computer to their phone without spending money on minutes. Tracfone has had the Mini USB port to the phone disabled for the same reason.
