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.

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.

Yes you can by giving them the pin number from the airtime card or by going to tracfone.com and entering the phone number on the add airtime or redeem airtime screen yourself and then keying in the pin number from the airtime card

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.

No; unused minutes rollover to the next month. You can save up as many as you want. However, problems may occur causing you to loose service and minutes...good luck with their lowsy customer service.

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.

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 1
A text message costs .30, so you pay .90 for 3 messages.

A message that is sent from an IPhone and comes across the internet costs more, that's .50 units per minute, the cost of using Internet on a Tracfone.

So, it's going to depend on how it's sent to you.
answered 1 year, 11 months ago

it depends on the size of the text. I've received texts that cost me 1/2 minute and I've received long texts that cost me 1 1/2 minutes each.

A text message uses 0.30 mins. When you add your airtime use a promo code from online and get even more mins. Average promo codes 20-60 mins extra. Then get a phone that adds triple mins for even more.

Each text costs 0.30 minutes of service, so you can use whatever mix of voice and text you want.

On mine. every text coming or going costs .50 mins. My previous phone was .30 outgoing texts only. You get what you pay for. Buy 60, get 60 yet on 120 or 200 bonus points are in a book that comes out every once in while that adds so many extra minutes.

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.
