Your account has to be active and the minutes not expired.
YES they carry over, just add some time.
My choice was to not worry about it and add a year @ 400 minutes DOUBLED(minutes only) for this model.
I don't have to lift a finger until Jan 2014 unless I talk a lot...

As long as you activate another service card your service date will extend and your minutes will rollover forever each time.

Question

This phone says it has 3.5 hrs. it also says double minutes for life does that mean it will be 7 hrs.?

That sounds like a deal at the point of sale.

MY phones came blank with something like 10 minutes free.

IF you have your phone and it is saying on the Main screen
the Minutes listing and the Service Days left, then it is telling
you the TOTAL currently in your account.
My PURCHASED minutes were doubled when they appeared there.
(I NEVER saw 400 minutes from my card, for example.)

Never through your cards away until the totals are what you
think they should be.
They change there as you use them.
AFTER a call I always see they are already deducted.

3.5 hours refers to battery life. No, it doesn't mean you get 7 hours.

With prepaid phones you purchase minutes. So, you'll see Tracfone "service cards" with 60, 120, 200, 400, etc. minutes.

When you buy a phone that has "double minutes" for the life of the phone it's referring to doubling the service card quantities. Example, if you buy a 60 minute card you'll see 120 minutes on your phone when it's activated.

Each service card adds 90 days of service to your phone. So if you activate two 60 minute service cards on this phone you'll receive 240 minutes and 180 days of service. Phones display your status, constantly showing your end date and how many minutes are available. Before the 'end of service' date you must activate another service card. If you don't activate another card your phone stops working and you lose your telephone #. To resume service you just re-activate the phone #on the website# and add another service card. Minutes rollover as long as you keep your phone active. So if you don't use all your minutes by the service date you get to keep them as long as you keep your phone active.

I still own my first Tracfone that I bought in 1999. It no longer works because it's obsolete but it worked until I was forced to switch to a modern digital phone. And I had many phone numbers over the years.

Hope that helps you but post again if you have questions. I recommend Tracfone especially if you want to control how much you spend, only buy what you need.

If you are a frequent texter, this is not the phone for you. It is pain to compose a message. That said, you can change text entry method by going to your message icon (the envelope), options, entry mode. T9 is useless, I use the standard ABC, Abc, abc, 123. With these, you can switch back/forth with the arrow key, bottom left hand side of keypad.

This phone uses a T9 text input system, with predictive text technology. Each numbered key has the potential to stand for 3 letters. When you wish to enter a letter with a T9 phone you must tap the number with that letter on it the number of times corresponding to the position that letter has on the key itself. For instance; when you wish to enter the letter "C" you must press the key numbered "2" three times in quick succession. The cursor will move to the next letter space automatically and you can enter the next letter. If it happened to be "U" you would then press the key numbered "8" three times in quick succession.

Your existing number has to be working at the time of transfer.
You want to "port" your old number to the new phone.

IF the old number is inactive or disconnected, it can NOT be ported.

answer 2
Yes.

If your current phone is pre-paid you can transfer that number easily. On the Tracfone website you can go thru activation of a new phone and choose to transfer your current number. The process takes about 15 minutes.

If you're using a contract phone it may take longer, your account must be in good standing, your telephone # number must be active at the time of transfer. Go thru activation on the Tracfone website. With contract phones be prepared, may take a couple of days to complete.

I've had a Tracfone since 1999. In 2009 I also switched my Sprint contract phone and kept the same telephone # since 1999. Transfers are easy to do as long as you are in good standing.

It has a SIM card so I think that automatically means it is NOT CDMA.
During the activation process, i was sent some text messages by ATT.
I think that is a good "hint" also.

Buy a "microsd card" from Walmart. You can use a card that's up to 16GB.

Power-off the phone. Remove the battery cover, remove the battery. You'll see the slot for the microsd card, insert it the card, reinstall the battery and close.

New Tracfones come with 90 days of service on activation.

They also come with 10 to 20 complimentary minutes.

You'll need to purchase an airtime card and activate it on day 89 to avoid losing service.
