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.

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.

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.

yes, lg440g will send/receive text messages. if they are brief messages without attachments (pics, whatever), the cost is approx 1/3 of one minute/unit; so like 3 cents each or less.

First, enter *#61# on the phone's keypad. Push SEND. Second, write down the phone number displayed on your screen (it is possibly a different number from your number). The screen will also display the number of seconds it is set to before it goes to voicemail. Push CANCEL. Enter (but do not send yet) **61* then +1 and the 10-digit number that you wrote down. Then Enter (still have not sent it yet) *11* followed by the NEW number of seconds before it goes to voicemail (i.e. 10 will give you 10-seconds before going to voicemail). Add the # and, finally, press SEND.

After during some research, I can now answer my own question: see the following link:
http://www.ehow.com/how_8646126_do-change-number-rings-tracfone.html

In order to get the "+" sign, hit the "*" key twice (quickly). the maximum time for rings is 30 seconds. I think you can increase by 5 second intervals up to that point.

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.

my understanding: the "G" on the end of "LG440G", means it is a GSM phone. Verizon uses CDMA, so no, I don't think so.

answer 2
G/C stand for different technologies used by AT&T and Verizon. The "G" stands for "GSM" which AT&T employs and the "C" is Verizon's "CDMA". If you are offered a choice by Tracfone, visit the webpages for Verizon and AT&T and review their respective "coverage maps". Whichever has the better coverage for area would be the best choice. Tracfone apparently gets a better deal from AT&T so TF tries to push more customers to the "G" phones even though the Verizon "C" phones may have better coverage for a particular area. If you want more info on GSM v. CDMA, do a web search on the two.
