  1. This doesn't appear to be the case for iPhones....

    This doesn't appear to be the case for iPhones. At least, mine has two different fields for IMEI and serial and they look nothing alike.


    Is it possible that this doesn't actually count as a...
  2. Ugh... I'm not keen on creating yet another...

    Ugh... I'm not keen on creating yet another stupid online account somewhere. Especially in this case since I don't really trust Tracfone and don't know what happened, I don't want to make the...

    For iPhone, the phone itself needs to be "activated" with Apple whereby they confirm it's not stolen or locked to someone else's iCloud account or whatever. You need to do this Apple activation thing...

    It claims to: "a $35 TracFone's Smartphone Only Plan provides 750 Minutes, 1000 Texts, and 1GB of data, 60 Day Plan,"

  5. Unable to activate new iPhone with Tracfone. Help?

    I recently purchase a new Tracfone iPhone. The included red card told me to do, in order:

    1) Activate Your Service: visit tracfone.com
    2) Insert your SIM Card
    3) Set up your phone: turn your...
  6. Yeah, but it doesn't answer any of my questions....

    Yeah, but it doesn't answer any of my questions. It implies they that instead of unlocking they can just give you a $5 "credit toward a new handset" or whatever, and it obviously doesn't explain any...
  7. Yeah it's looking like that. I just thought to...

    Yeah it's looking like that. I just thought to inspect the html on Target's listing and buried in the javascript is "TFAPISEC32SVPET3". I dunno maybe Verizon has gotten better here recently. I'll...
  8. Thanks. What I meant though was, what was the...

    Thanks. What I meant though was, what was the time gap between the last card you put on the phone and when you went to unlock it? I've heard some mixed reports that TracFone has hidden limits on...
  9. OK, thanks. I'll have to see if there's anything...

    OK, thanks. I'll have to see if there's anything like that when I go in.


    Amazon and Walmart still sell them, as does Target. Not a lot of selection on size and color though.
  10. OK, thanks. The phone I'm looking at is also an...

    OK, thanks. The phone I'm looking at is also an iPhone SE so that's promising. (The store still has a few kicking around in stock).

    It sounds like it 'just worked' when you tried the unlock, was...
  11. What are people's experiences unlocking iPhones on Tracfone?

    I'm thinking about going to my local Target and picking up one of the Tracfone iPhone deals. This isn't a refurb+BYOP SIM, but the official sold-by-Tracfone bundle. I'd like to be able to unlock the...
  12. Well I can always check when I go to the store...

    Well I can always check when I go to the store and see it. What numbers am I looking for?


    ...ok... but that doesn't really answer my original question. What I'm asking is if I can just transfer...
  13. It's 100% stock? They don't add any wallpaper or...

    It's 100% stock? They don't add any wallpaper or the Tracfone app or anything?


    Transferred from where? Was your previous phone on AT&T's side like mine?
  14. I mean, you'd think if the phone supports AT&T...

    I mean, you'd think if the phone supports AT&T and I'm trying to keep using Tracfone on it via my existing account that this would be allowed, but we all know TFs "support"....

    On that note, I try...
  15. Ergh, I was afraid of something like that. It...

    Ergh, I was afraid of something like that. It used to be that you could tell what carrier the phone was on ahead of time based on the UPC or something, is that still possible?



    I had to double...
  16. Looking to migrate to a Tracfone-branded iPhone, but I have a lot of questions...

    I currently have an older 3G phone on Tracfone's BYOP plan running on the AT&T side of things. Since AT&T has announced they're shutting down 3G over the next two years I need to get a move on and...

    If you're using the very latest OS/browser you're ok. It's off by default in anything that's a couple years old, like IE 8-10, some Firefox ESRs, and Opera.

    Nevermind, I figured it out. The chat.tracfone.com error was a red herring. The real issue is that tracfone.com outsources its chat to inq.com, which requires a newer version of SSL that for some...

    Well, MS ate them for the patents- all the engineers were fired or jumped ship so there isn't really anyone to ask anymore. I wasn't expecting anyone here to know the details of this phone...

    Question: if you have an older 3G feature phone...

    Question: if you have an older 3G feature phone (that can't browse the web while on a call), is there any possibility that it might flipflop back and forth between GSM and WCDMA depending on what...

    Yeah well that's the thing, I know UMTS/WCDMA supports voice and that by rights any phone should be able to do voice over 3G, what I'm wondering is if it's legally required, and if not what are the...

    Getting back on track to my original question; I assumed that for simple cost reasons phone manufacturers would make a single radio that can talk both GSM and UMTS, so I'm not asking if the phone has...
  23. WCDMA is one of the three possible air-interfaces...

    WCDMA is one of the three possible air-interfaces that the UMTS spec allows. I'm not sure who you were talking to or what they meant by 'gigs' in this context, but the W in WCDMA stands for...

    CDMA, WCDMA, TDCDMA, and TDSCDMA are not identical technologies just because they contain the same letters. That's like saying you'll never be a homeowner because you don't like the word "meow". If...

    Where does "UTRA-FDD" and "UTRA-TDD" fit into this? I don't fully understand what those are.
