DO UNUSED MINUTES ROLL OVER?

IS IT NECESSARY TO BUY MINUTES EACH MONTH, OR JUST WHEN YOUR MINUTES RUN OUT?

The card provides 60 minutes for 90 days and one user said that you will have to recharge it every month, as the minutes run out.

You only need to buy more when minutes run out, OR when the 90 service days end, so yes they do roll over.

It's my understanding, from Tracfone, that in order to keep your phone number "active" (meaning not taken away / disconnected) you have to have:
1. Air Time remaining on your phone --
meaning Days of Service still showing available for you to use
2. Minutes --
meaning you still have Minutes available for you to use.

You don't necessarily have to purchase minutes every month, but you do have to have BOTH air time AND minutes available in order to have an active phone number / account. If this answer is unclear I'd suggest you call Tracfone directly. What I am relating is from my experience, when I still had minutes but my days of service had run out, so I lost my phone number and had to reactivate my phone when I bought a new minutes card. They had to give me a new phone number, the old one had been assigned to someone else.

If you buy a card that has a ninety day time period on it, then you must purchase another card before your due date is up or your phone service willl be discontinued. You will see the new minutes and due date displayed on your phone. If you have remaining (unused) minutes on the first card but the date is due, the left over minutes will roll over and be added to the next card. If you tend to run out of "time" before you use all the minutes, it might be beneficial to buy the 450 min/1 year card and then you won't have to worry about the time for a year. You can still buy any of the minute cards if you run out of minutes before the year is up . Make sure to go online and look for the "bonus codes" which will add extra minutes to whatever card you buy.

Does the basic ($19.99) card include web service?

answer 1
Yes it does but this is not a good value for web service because it has the lowest # of minutes (for feature phone use) and data (for smartphone use) per period. For web you probably want a 90 day 200 minute card which more than triples your web data either way but only costs about 75% more.

My first thought is: that would depend... Does your phone have Internet access AND, recently I've seen Tracfone phones that divide minutes into segments. I.E. plans assign minutes by thirds; 30 to calling, 30 to data, 30 to texting. I'd also wonder which phone carrier was going to provide you with the Internet service? Some plans offer different carriers, and that's determined by your zip code.
Before you spend money buying any more minutes, I would contact Tracfone directly and ask them how those minutes can be used.
The Tracfone website offers the option of opening an "account". You don't have to enter any billing information if you don't want to -- but there's a chance to register your phone -- and when you do, there's an Owner's Manual that will come listed online for your model of phone. I've found it very helpful for listing my phone's particular features and how to operate them.
Maybe this would be another way for you to figure out how to best use your particular phone's options as well. -- Good Luck --

These Tracfone cards come with minutes and service days. It tells you on the card. You can purchase them from anywhere that sells Tracfone airtime cards, but the price at Walmart is a good one. Better than online at the Tracfone site--I have an account there. You can check for yourself to compare.

No, although honestly, I found Walmart has some of the best prices for the Minutes cards.
You can even buy them online and have the card/minutes emailed to you to activate through your phone. But if you do use the email purchase method, I recommend: PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THE INSTRUCTIONS THEY GIVE YOU, or you could make a mistake that will invalidate your purchase.
Otherwise, you can buy the cards at the Walmart store, many Electronics stores (Best Buy, Radio Shack, etc.) I even think I've seen them on racks next to the check-out in grocery stores and places like Kmart. I can't think of them all right now, but as you look around for them I think you'll be surprised how many places carry them.
You can even buy minutes straight from your phone itself. For more, look up the Tracfone website: http://www.tracfone.com

Question

Some time back I purchased an LG 840 trackfone, after many hours on phone three different phones three different SIM cards.

We learn these smartphones will not work if your home zip code number is 68061. Today while checking on line I type in my zip code, and there are a few phone listed for this zip code. My question is will all smart phones now work in this zip code. Thank you

Hi Carl. The LG 840 has a "G" at the end of the model name like this: LG 840G. That G means it runs off GSM networks not CDMA, while your area is only CDMA, not GSM.

LG 840G is a feature phone not a smartphone but there are several CDMA smartphones now available from Tracfone on their website -OR- the feature phone most equivalent to an LG 840G on their site would be the LG 305C.

The airtime card Walmart is selling will work with any of them, providing as mentioned above that it's a CDMA phone since you need CDMA in your zip code.

Carl, that seems like a really good question, but I wouldn't trust that "ALL" Tracfone Smart-phones work for your particular zip code. I think you'd need to check each model individually; even though they're under Tracfone service, I believe Tracfone has coverage deals with different primary carriers. For example, I've seen some phone models advertised with Verizon coverage -- while other models have AT&T or T-Mobile coverage.
Also, over the years I've been told that sometimes carriers "share" coverages, and that my call reception was dependent on which tower picked up my out-going call...
I would say, when you looked up online and saw that your zip code was covered, with a particular Smart phone, only use THAT phone showing the coverage available. Tracfone makes contracts between the phone manufacturer and the coverage carrier, and if you mix the two, you may not be able to use the phone you chose. Maybe confirm it with Tracfone before you invest in a purchase.

No there is no expiration date but your strategy would not be good for an emergency because it is not guaranteed that the phone would immediately be usable right after entering in the PIN #. Sometimes it takes several minutes or even hours before the phone works.

However in an emergency any tracfone can still dial 911 even without paying for airtime. In other words cellular networks put 911 calls through even if it's from someone without authorization to use that network, you don't need to buy this card to be able to call 911. However, you may need to recharge the phone periodically as it may not have much of a charge left after 3 months.

Your service will expire with no notice on screen. You will have minutes unused, but they are no good if your service expires. You need to make a note of the expiration date, or the phone will not be able to be used. If you lose service, it's no charge to re-install, but I couldn't do it online, I had to ask a Walmart associate to do it for me.I had 300 minutes left, but no service.My minutes stayed once the service was re-installed.

I would think not; even though the coverage might be with the very same carrier your Straight-talk plan is with, I believe that's a plan offered as a very specific, and perhaps contracted, "deal".
I would call the phone carrier you have straight-talk with and see what they have to say about that.
If it is under a contract between yourself and the carrier, I doubt you can refill any minutes the way things are now.

I have the same problem and ran out of service. I got it re-instated at my Walmart, now I have to make a note of the expiration date so it doesn't happen again. I guess there's an explanation. I can't imagine why it doesn't show....it was so annoying trying to get it installed again online and I gave up when it failed to work the first time I tried and then I was stuck waiting so long. I got it put back on by a Walmart associate very quickly, so that's the best way to d it if it happens to you.
I had 300 minutes left, but no service.

Yes shug, it is the right card. The card doesn't determine whether you get double minutes, rather the phone does. The card shouldn't say double because some really old tracfones are only single minutes and the newer ones are triple minutes but they all take the exact same airtime cards.
