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

The TracFone LG 236C Prepaid Cell Phone will not be able to use Straight talk plan. It can only use the original provider service plan.

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.

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.

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 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 1 week, 2 days ago

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.
