The Nokia 1100 Tracfone was a great cheap and reliable prepaid phone.
It is no longer offered, but I've left the review up to see how much more the latest prepaid cell phones offer.
So if you drop it, you can just buy another one. As much as you may love the idea of a tiny, expensive phone, the reality is that you don't want to be out $400 bucks because you knocked it off the counter while making your sweetheart her morning cup of tea.
It does happen.
Perhaps the highest selling phone on the planet at one time, the Nokia 1100 just does its job.

The Nokia 1100's flashlight is a really handy feature for doing things like reading a map or unlocking your door when you get home after dark. (If you're looking for a Tracfone with a flashlight, take a look at the Alcatel A382.)
To turn the flashlight on and off, from the main menu, press the "C" button. To turn it off, press the "C" button twice. The buttons are a little sensitive. I've often pulled the phone out of my pocket and a few random numbers are on the screen from the phone being bumped in my pocket.
