answer 1
You scroll to "Settings," "Sound," when you have highlighted "Meeting," hit the "Options" button ... arrow down to "Customize, push "Okay." Look for "Vibrate Only," highlight it, push "Okay." Make sure "Vibrate Only" is selected, select "Options," then arrow to "Save, hit the "Okay" button again. The menu should return to "Meeting." Then select "Back" until you are back to "Settings."

You have just put you phone on "Vibrate."

I set my dad's to vibrate earlier and don't have the phone in front of me now, but I think I remember the steps. Go to settings, sound, then click on Meeting - scroll to vibrate only, then hit OK. When you want the ringer back on, just go back into sound and click on General and reactivate that.

Service area depends on the model. After 22 TracFones I never had a problem but I would still go by what TracFone says since they will have to guarantee service where they say it will work.

answer 2
No, do not buy it.

Tracfones are not universal, this is what you're finding. 382G works with AT&T and shares T-Mobile where available. 382G will not work with Verizon or Sprint. So you have to know what coverage is in your area and buy a Tracfone that uses that network.

New Tracfones have 10 to 20 complimentary minutes pre-loaded to tryout the service. If you buy it anyway you have 30 days to return it where you purchased it. Just don't load additional airtime until you're sure it works because you can not get a refund on airtime card purchases.

Go to www.tracfone.com and click Support, then choose phones. This model is listed there.

But I don't think the manual is adequate for voicemail options, actually it's useless.

When he dials in for the first time he chooses the language - which can be changed later - then he just follows the prompts to complete voicemail activation. After that he just needs to listen to the options and menus.

If you want to help him you watch this video that demonstrate how to setup on Tracfone, it's universal:

This style is called a "candy bar" so not it does not slide. The phone has a key on the side to stop pocket dials.
