Questions & Answers for Tracfone TracFone Huawei H868C Prepaid Cell Phone

Question

GPS capabilities

Is the phone capable of stand-alone offline GPS navigation or is it Assisted-GPS only?

It is not stand alone. It's not like a Garmin or a TomTom.

The phone either needs a WiFi connection or a data connection. This phone has Verizon with pretty good coverage. I have purchased a Sprint mobile hot spot to ensure I have alternate coverage when I need it.

Since you asked about standalone, I assume you realize if you use the data connection for GPS it will burn your minutes quickly. If you need GPS then Straight Talk has a similar phone for $45/mo and unlimited data (and becomes slower after 2.5GB).

I have had both phones, the LG840g and this new Huawei.
The LG 840 is only talk, text, a camera, 2 games and a radio, calculator, etc. A pretty basic phone with Triple minutes for life.
The LG is not a internet phone nor does it use Wi-Fi.

The 868 is an Android phone with an SD slot and can use Wi-Fi and the internet. It also has Triple minutes for life. The H868C is a better phone which does more.

I have a lg840g and was sent an android powered phone from tracfone as a replacement (unfortunately they sent me a telcel which only works in mexico) it is much better! Faster...better apps available...easier to navigate many better features. Just depends on what you do on yours. If you only talk and text and don't access web much, you probably wont notice much of a difference. Camera is better too.

Yes! Triple minutes for life for each category, talk, text and web.
You can also purchase separate cards to add more data.

Yes ... I did see that info on the packaging. For every minute you buy you will get 2 additional minutes. My phone (LG840g) has this feature. It does NOT include bonus minutes though. So if you buy 60 minutes and use a promo to get 10 min free, You will get 60X3 (180) plus ten...the ten is NOT tripled.

Yes... airtime and minutes will transfer. BUT if you are a value plan member and you are transferring your main (primary) phone, you MIGHT have to re enroll. But I have switched tracfones several times and all time and minutes transfer over.

CDMA.

One way to identify which type of network a phone operates on is to look at the model number. For example, this phone (Huawei H868C) ends in a C, which indicates CDMA. If it ends with a G, it is GSM.

answer 1
Just as an example, you get 360 MB of data with a $30 120 minute card (with triple minute smartphones). You get 2 GB of data for $50. The data card is cheaper for data but would only be helpful if you have minimal wifi access and need a lot of data.

You've misunderstood. This device can access internet via the phone's data connection or it can use a WiFi signal.

Data connection will burn minutes so leave it turned off.

WiFi signal is provided by your home network or free hot spots at McDonalds restaurants, schools, libraries, hotels, etc etc etc.

I wouldn't think that any apps use phone minutes, but may use data depending upon the app (e.g., Yelp would use data for searching restaurants). Any app that uses data will get the data through a wifi network so wouldn't have to use the prepaid data. You can turn the 3G data usage off to prevent any data usage that you don't want.

Yes it will burn minutes if you have the data connection turned on.

If you turn off the data connection there's no charge. And if you use the WiFi connection there's no charge.
