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

Cards for minutes?

Some say they come with a card to give, something to get you started. Does this model come with a card like that or will I have to buy them separate. Also do they make cards to give you minutes that rollover or have no expiration date?

This phone only comes with an activation card. Separate cards will be needed to add time to the phone. Any phone card that is used will results in twice as many minutes being added to the phone.

answer 2
Ok, once you charge the phone & activate it, then it will show 10 minutes to get you started. You have to buy a phone card to add additional minutes. The minutes on this phone do not roll over if your airtime date expires, but you can buy phone cards that will add airtime, for example, like for a year of airtime. This way you won't waste the minutes you bought if you forget or don't want to keep adding minutes (if you don't use the phone a lot). Remember, on this phone every time you buy a phone card, you will actually be getting double minutes (so if you buy a phone card to add 60 minutes, its like buying 120 minutes - you get the 60 extra minutes for free).

Mine didn't come with a card but you can add minutes through the phone itself or online, Also walmart sells the cards for this phone.

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.

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.

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.
