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.

answer 3
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.

answer 1
No. Also, there is no airtime mins that are used, so the call is basically free for activating the new TracFone. They also give you 20 mins and 2 months service (free) but after mins are used or time is up, you will have to purchase minutes and service.

answer 2
You pay for the phone. Sign on to Tracfone and I advise you to call when you're ready to activate. I had my number ported. Took a couple of hours. Great Customer Service, and no hidden fees. It comes with 10 minutes of airtime that they say to make (and I wanted to also receive a call, to make sure the phone works).Then, call back to buy minutes. Whatever minutes you buy is doubled, plus, most have bonus mins. included. I got the year plan.

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 3 months, 2 weeks ago
By

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.

answer 3
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.
