Have had this phone for 11 days now and have had nothing but trouble activating it.
I made a 1 hr and 7 min call (sounded like India) and struggled to hear the lady who told me that the transfer of my old Tracfone number and my existing 3322.9 minuets would take a day or two.
I called again 4 days later (40 min wait) and Tracfone told ne that I had to wait 48 hours more.
The phone tells me it is now programmed and to push any key to continue ...... I did, and it showed the message "Activation Required".
Great Phone ..... extremely poor Customer Service. Still NO Activation.

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.

Yes. Amazingly enough the cheaper Tracfone Samsung S150 G with Double Minutes comes with both a wall charger and a car charger included in the package with the phone for the very inexpensive price of $9.88! And the phone actually works very good also. A better deal on a basic bones cell phone would be hard to find.

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.
