Yes and you can transfer your minutes too. Just be sure you don't try to activate it before you call customer service or else you'll need to wait a week for them to mail you a new SIM card.

It should. There are only two sim card carriers for Tracfone, AT&T and T-Mobile. The SIM card type phones will work for either SIM card.

When phone won't work in specific area

When it is said that the phone won't work in a given area, per zip code given, does that mean you just can't call FROM that area, or does that also mean you can't call TO that area from another area where the phone is said to work???

If your phone gets a signal and you place a call to that area where your phone does not work, it will still go through to any phone/number in that area. It only means your type phone will not be able to connect and place calls in that area.

answer 2
You can't place any call in that area, usually because there is no signal for the phone to connect to.

when your call is connected, there is a icon of a speaker with a little dot beside it in the lower left part of screen , but if you don't see that, in the upper right where the menu button is , touch this and it will have option for speaker phone.

answer 2
when you receive a call, AFTER you "accept call" you will see a small speaker icon, click on that and the little circle will turn green, then "speaker phone " is activated--- when you are making a call, you will see the speaker icon immediately, again, click on that icon, the small circle will turn green and your "speaker phone" is activated

You have to buy minutes/time on tracfone's web site, or from stores that carry tracfone minute/time cards. Their web site also does have "plans", so you can check them out there.

New Tracfones come with 10 to 20 complimentary minutes, to try out the new phone before you buy airtime.

the battery has bars in the upper right hand of the screen, 3 bars. I would charge it when it gets to 1 bar. However if you let it just run it will tell you battery needs charged.

answer 2
in the very top right corner of the regular screen you will see the time display, the battery icon is beside that time display, it will show 3 green bars when fully charged and will reduce to 2 and then 1 bar as you use the phone, the claim is: Talk Time: up to 3.7 hours
Standby Time: up to 13 days

answer 1
The only way I can see is if you type the last name in the first name space, and then type the first name in the last name space, so it will then sort in reverse order than it usually does (it sorts now by first name, so by typing things in reverse, it should sort by last name)
answered 1 year, 8 months ago

Maddydeh
answer 2
I'm afraid there's no option for that.
If that's how you want contacts to appear on the list you will have to individuality inter the last names first on there contact info page
