Yes it does.Incoming and outgoing calls and text uses your tracfone minutes.
I would not recommend tracfone to someone who uses cell phone a lot.
Tracfone is only good for someone who only uses a cell phone for an occasional short call and just to carry around for an emergency situation.

Minutes will be deducted any time you choose to answer an incoming call. You can ignore the call and let it go to voicemail and you will not be charged. To hear voicemail messages without being charged simply call your cell number using a landline, press the # key, and enter your 4 digit pass code. The code is obtained when you first buy the phone and activate it. Tracfone is ideal for those who don't use their phone much and need unused minutes to carry over.

When you buy a 60 mins. card you get 90 days of service from the day you activate that card. If you do not add more time before that then the mins will expire but if you add mins before that date the mins remaining will roll over into your next time period.

yes, depending on how many minutes you buy depends on how long the card lasts. Like 60 minutes is good for 90 days, but 200 minutes is good for 6 months. The more minutes you buy, the longer it last.

You could easily do this in two ways. Buy the card (the number is covered) and send in the mail. I bought the card for my daughter and the phone as a gift. You could also buy online and have walmart send the email to the gift receiver or forward the email. As long as you don't use the number on another phone.

All you need to use the minutes is the PIN that will get emailed to you. If the order system won't let you redirect the order to someone else, all you have to do is forward the PIN on to them.

As far as I can tell, no. The minute cards are prone to thiefs to just pull the card out and enter in the pin number right there and then. This delivery system of Walmarts guarantees you get the mins privately and securely.

answer 2
The minutes do not expire, but the days will. In other words, if you purchase a 90 day card, you will have to purchase another card at the end of that time or the phone will shut off. Your leftover minutes will roll over and be added to the new card.

answer 3
On this card, yes. They expire in 90 days, unless you add more minutes before that, in which case your left over minutes roll over, so you save the minutes.

By
Ranscott2011
answer 4
The minutes will not expire if you buy additional minutes within the time frame of the card. For example, if you buy this card and the expiration date on it is September 19, 2013, you can extend the time of this card by buying a new 60 minute card before September 19, 2013. Just don't ever let the time expire or you will lose any accumulated minutes.

No they do not expire. They carry over. If you let your Tracfone service days expire, your minutes are still good. If anything they will just ask you to buy more to continue your service

The minutes will not expire, but you do have to keep your account current. Each card has two components: a number of minutes, and a number of service days. In addition to the minutes, this card adds 90 service days to your account. As long as you keep buying cards and adding them before your service days expire, your minutes will roll over indefinitely.

Do we need to purchase a Trac Phone for the email phone carrd minutes?

Yes you do need an actual purchased Tracfone phone to put the airtime onto. The Tracfone cards will only work with Tracfone phones so make sure when purchasing the phone that it and the card both say Tracfone. There are several inexpensive phones offered at Walmart for Tracfone to get him started with.

Plans and phones are normally sold separately, but not always.

If you have selected the plan (email phone card, as you described) then you will also need to purchase a phone. You must buy a Straight Talk phone not a Tracfone. Tracfone's will not work with the phone cards either.
