Questions & Answers for Tracfone TracFone ZTE Valet Android Cell Phone with Triple Minutes for Life

Question

RE: TracFone ZTE Valet Android Cell Phone with Triple Minutes for Life

What are triple minutes for life? Does this mean once I get the phone I never have to pay for minutes? Or if I buy a card with 500 minutes I will get 1500 minutes? Or is there any other explanation? Thanks

As long as you have a phone that does triple minutes, the minutes are tripled(60 minute card would really be 180 minutes). They advertise this, because not all Tracfones do triple minutes.

It is the tripling of the amount of minutes you buy. You buy 500 you get 1500.

I have had a triple-minute phone for about two years now, and as others have mentioned, when you buy 'regular' minutes #NOT a double or triple minute offer# it will automatically triple the amount and shows up immediately on your phone. BE AWARE, though that if you get a refill that's already offering double or triple minutes, that DOES NOT mean it will quadruple or quintuple #sp?# on your phone. I know from experience, that you have to pick one or the other. If you purchase a double minute offer, that's all you will get. The special offers overrride the phone's auto-triple feature.

There is no unlimited talk and text on this phone. You do get triple minutes AND triple texts AND data service.

Not sure if that's the exact model phone they're using in the commercial; but if you're asking if it will operate on a $7/month plan, then that is correct. Mine reads, "Plans as low as $7 per month" right on the front of the outside packaging.

Of course you don't get much data/airtime minutes for that, even on 3x (it works out to one hour/60 MB data per month); but it's nice for short calls; and you can enjoy the web-based features on wi-fi whenever available.

First of all there is no 'unlimited talk, texts, etc.' with Tracfone.

The $7/month is based on purchasing the $19.99 60-minute airtime card which gives 90 days service and 180 minutes on this triple-minute phone. So, $7/mo is the lowest possible cost for any minute-based Tracfone, yes.

Straight Talk is a Tracfone sister-brand for $45/unlimited/30 day cycles and they offer similar Android phones on walmart.com

Question

Air Time Phone Card

If I have a active tracfone already [LG500g] [ and have over 1000 minutes on my existing phone] and want to switch over to this phone, do I still have to purchase a "Airtime Card" to activate this phone ?

You can go right on their website and they can transfer your minutes to your new phone. You can even transfer your number if you want. You will also get triple texts and data.

No you don't have to purchase an airtime card.

Just go to www.tracfone.com and there is an orange button "Activate Phone" and choose "Transfer my number and service from one TracFone to another." Follow the prompts to transfer your phone # and minutes.

Have both phones turned on and charged up before you begin.

Your best bet is to do what I did. Just go to You Tube and ask. The One thing that stood out for me, is that I heard the ZTE has better wireless reception.

answer 2
The Huawei _might_ have a better Wifi antenna, which could be important if you plan to use it at home or at a place with open wifi. The Huawei also has an FM radio. Otherwise they're identical. The Huawei may or may not have a better Wifi antenna, but there are reports that the ZTE gets poor reception from a few people who bought it -- enough to notice. Similarly the LG Android Tracfone has very little storage space and the Samsung has a clock bug that could get you fired. As you mention, it's the ZTE or the Huawei. Respond with which one you get. I'm getting one for my mom.
