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.)

You will have to buy phone cards with this phone. You will have to contact TracPhone if they have phone plans. If they do you will have to have them bill your credit card bank or debit card.

There are lots of different service plans one is $20.00 for 60 minutes that would last 90 days. You can always add more before the 90 days.

Tracfone has no service plan.
What you add for minutes is what you have to use until you add more.
If the phone is unused for several months, you may need to add minutes to keep the service on.

It's like all other warranty coverages 1 yr. You can buy an extended warranty when you purchase this phone (bought mine from Walmart) 2 yr.

This sounds like the phone you are looking for, but be sure to 1. Check the phone will work in your mother's area
2. Get a phone number for her area. (Tracfone will change phone numbers if the first one is not compatible.)
After she receives it, should she have difficulty getting bars have her dial #22890, then SEND to align the phone with the nearest tower/s.

Before buying it make sure she will be in an area that Tracfone covers.
I love this phone, It is easy to use. The instruction booklet is clear and simple.

It means that whatever amount of minutes you buy you get twice as much. So if you buy 60 minutes you get 120 for the same price.
answered 4 months ago
By
CommunityAnswer
answer 2
This means when you purchase a phone card they will double the minutes ie; 60=120 min. 120 min.=240, you will run out of phone minutes long before expiration date on phone card. When I finally got signed up, (it took a long time if you transfer your old phone # over to this phone), they have to check and make sure you don't owe any balances on your old phone service before TracPhone will transfer your old phone #. Also, with this type of phone you cannot sync your old phone #'s over to this phone, have to do it manually.

For every minute you buy and add to your phone you receive the same amount free.
For example; You purchase and add 60 minutes. An extra 60 minutes is added free. Purchase 240 minutes, get an extra 240 minutes free. Each and every time you add minutes.
If, for any reason, you do not receive the extra minutes, simply call Tracfone, explain the situation and the proper adjustments should be added to your minutes quickly.

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.
