Question

ARE THERE ANY ROAMING CHARGES FOR THE LG 221C?

We've used tracphones for years. We live in WY and travel often into MT. When using our phones out of our zip code, we are charged a roaming fee of double minutes. It all depends upon the contract tracphone has with the local carrier towers; in our area Verizon.

Roaming charges have nothing to do with the phone. If there are roaming charges, they will be charged by your carrier. Prepaid services typically don't have roaming charges, but some contract plans do. Check with your carrier.

From the information I've found, Tracfone does not have roaming charges for their prepaid cellphones. I haven't used it outside of my local area and can't confirm this personally.

When you call up to get your phone registered, just remind them. They know anyway, because the serial number tells them when the phone is boxed.

As a double check, write down your minutes before your phone is set up. If new it will be zero. After they activate your phone, check that it is twice what you are allotted.

As far as the "life" goes, this serial number will have double minutes associated with it on the provider's computers. Ever after, this serial number will get double minutes however purchased.

Note that "life" does not mean "your life". It means the "life of the phone"; hence it is tied to the serial number.

The "C" at the end of "LG221C" means that this is a CDMA phone. CDMA phones do not use SIM cards. If it wee a "G", such as "LG430G", it would be a GSM phone and all GSM phones have SIM cards. If there is no letter at the end, you would need to read the specs to be sure.

Check coverage maps in your area. Some ares have more GSM towers and some areas have more CDMA towers. Also some cities restrict towers of either type to stop channel overloading.

Yes. And very easy to do at the Tracfone website, just select 'Switch My Number' and follow the prompts. Takes about 15 minutes.

Usually yes. Be sure to heck directly with tracfone via web or phone though. If the minutes involved is more than 500 there is also a more detailed procedure.

Tracfone customer service told me any of their phones which end in a C bounce off of Verizon towers. I have the LG221C and it works great in my area. The only phones which work here are Verizon or US Cellular.

I had a lot of problems getting a signal with my previous Tracfone. I called their customer service and found the phone I was using bounced off of AT&T towers which have very little coverage in my area. After explaining to the rep I used to have a Verizon phone and never had any problems with a signal, he told me to find a phone which ended with a C in the model number. I went to my local Walmart and the sales person told me they get a lot of people in the store with the same problem. She sold me a Tracfone LG221C and I haven't had any more problems. The phone I had before ended with a G in the model number. Hope that helps.

can a prepaid cell number from a different provider be transfered to this cell phone(LG221C)

Some can and some can't. It's done through a function called "provisioning". Call your intended new provider and give them your brand and model number and ask them if they can provision your phone to their network. If so, they will download code into your phone via your "Code Entry Mode" function on your phone and you're off and running.

Just so you know, some networks may want you to buy their phones even though they will provision correctly. Just don't tell them that you are changing services.

Yes. Even a number from a landline can be transferred to any cellphone (not just Tracfones).

how long do tracfone minutes last?

Short answer: The minutes do not expire.

However, you get a certain amount of service time [days until your service runs out] with every purchase of minutes so as long as you do not let that time run out (and i have never come close to running out of days on my phone in over a year's usage), you will never lose your minutes. I think the minimum is 30 days included with a 60 minute card purchase, and your days will roll over (that is, every time you add minutes, it adds to what you already had; you don't start at zero on days or minutes after the initial activation of the phone).
