You can transfer your old cell # but not your remaining minutes from your old cell service, I don't think.

As long as the older Tracfone is active the phone number can be transferred to the new phone. Once the number is transferred you will not be able to use the old phone for anything except 911 calls unless you add more minutes and a new number is assigned.

Regarding minutes; Whether the old phone is active or not all minutes on the old phone can be transferred to the new phone. You will need the Serial Number for each phone when you call using a third phone. (You need a third phone as you may need to enter codes on each phone. Tracfone personnel will explain what you need to do to guide you through the process.)

Question

Will this phone work with the $30 Straight talk plan?

I noticed that this LG 236 C is offered in a Straight talk phone and a Trac phone. Although they have different model numbers.
Trac phone model # TFLG236CDMPWP for $14.88 and then
Straight talk model # STLG236CPWP for 49.99
Since they are basically the same phone I wonder if it will work. I like the price of the Trac phone and the price of the Straight talk plan of $30 for

No, you're NOT able to switch phone plans back and forth like this. That's based on the provider service not the actual phone type.

You just get the various Airtime Cards from TracFone for so many Minutes and this Flip phone Doubles your card's face value for more Total minutes until the Expiration time period.

Hope this helps you.

Your question responds perfectly to the Virgin phone......that is the reason I selected this Tracfone.phone. Believe me I did a lot of research B4 buying. I had an old Tracfone & was ready for a new one. Prior to this I had a Virgin & they provided wonderful options to buy minutes (i.e., $80 for a full year & could pay quarterly. If you didn't use, you did not lose.) So B4 the last Tracfone purchase, I bought an another Virgin for $20/month.. & no more previous generosity w/their old plan. So I ditched that one. AND Bcuz I did so much research, I know that my selection is the right one for me.

You can purchase 60 min. - 120 min cards etc. I got double minutes when I signed up with a 60 min. card. You will run out of minutes before you use up the expiration date, like I have only 85 minutes left and the expiration say's 8/20/14.
