answer 1
don't understand your question,-- if you have an old phone and want to transfer everything to this new phone, yes you can---if you have an old phone and just want to buy this new phone and activate it thus having two tracfones, yes you can---if you just have an old phone that is de-activated and want to re-activate it, yes you can, but you have to get a new sim card from Tracfone, once a tracfone is de-activated that sim card is not usable again, must receive a new one(they have told me there is no charge, they mail it to you)

Maybe.

Some phones are easily reactivated and others are not.

Example, I recently tried to re-activate a 500G and it required a new SIM so Tracfone had to send it.

And if the phone is older that's a factor.

You should call Tracfone Customer Service and see what they say or just buy an airtime card and try re-activation using their website. If it doesn't work you'll still own the airtime card.

Go under message and click the right upper button next to inbox. go into message settings then go down to voicemail number and there you go there is your number. helpful hint you can dial that number on a landline and follow the promps and it will cost you nothing no mins off your phone if you do it that way.

answer 1
(update) I just read another post saying safelink is contracted through TracFone like Straight Talk is.
If that's the case my last reply may be in error, and it may be possible to transfer your safelink minutes over to your TracFone after all
answered 1 year, 2 months ago

answer 2
To transfer your old providers # to your TracFone via phone call (1-800-867-7183) or on line at http://www.tracfone.com
But if your asking if you can also transfer the minutes you had on your safelink account to your TracFone account the answer is no.
You may only transfer minutes from one TracFone to another not from outside providers

http://www.tracfone.com/questions.jsp
To transfer your number from your Old Service Provider to TracFone Wireless, you must ask TracFone to Port your existing telephone number. TracFone Wireless will process the request for you. During this process, your service with your current provider will be disconnected automatically and Activated with the new provider you have selected. There is no need for you to call your current provider to disconnect your service. During the Request process, you will still be able to place calls on your existing wireless telephone or wire line phone. You, however, will not be able to receive calls during the porting process.

No.

I mean yes.

I mean roaming is not applicable to Tracfone prepaid, with regard to cost. This phone uses both AT&T and it shares T-Mobile where available and there's no cost change for it.

When you buy the phone, it comes with either an AT&T or T-Mobile sim card depending on your area. If you have bad reception, call customer service and they will mail you a new sim card. I had problems with T-Mobile service and they mailed me an AT&T sim card.

"G" in the model name shows it's a GSM phone which is ATT and T-Mobile.

If you're looking for Verizon you would look for a model with "C" or CDMA.

Here's a list of phones available thru Tracfone prepaid, no all are available thru walmart.com
