We had the the cheapest plan AT&T offered. Our bills were approximately $90 every month. We don't text or use internet. Seems every other month AT&T was taking [up to] 400 minutes back.
HSN had special on TracFone LG840. Purchase included; cell phone, wall charger, car charger, ear buds, choice of back color and triple minutes . Paid $115, each phone, which included tax and S/H.
We were able to port over our old phone numbers, via TracFone customer service. Had problem porting because AT&T wouldn't cooperate with TracFone to release info. It took me two phone calls to AT&T. After that, it didn't take TracFone long to apply our old numbers and activate phones. Be aware TracFone's cust service reps have heavy accents. You can also do all this on TracFone website.
Be sure you write down all your contact numbers and copy your pictures someplace else. These WILL NOT port over.
HSN provided a phone number and activation code to apply triple minutes. Triple minutes were on phone within 30 minutes.
I apolgize for such a long answer.
