I currently have a Tracfone and it works at my home. When I put in my zipcode to test and see in the Alcatel 382 G would work at my home, the answer was "NO". Should I buy it since another Tracfone works??

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.

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.
