    I've had my S7 since March and I love it. Only complaint I have is battery life, but that's pretty universal to current smart phones. I got spoiled because I had a stamina battery in my S5. Made...

    Wow, I had no idea. This is even cheaper what what I was doing before. Do I just put in the sim card and it adds everything to my account? It won't change my number?

    Experiences with auto-refill?

    Hi. It's getting time to renew the service days on my phone. Tracfone no longer offers one-year service only cards for my BYOP so I'm back to buying 90 day cards as the simplest option. I'm thinking...

    Actually, I switched over to a Galaxy S7 a few months ago. I just can't figure out how to change my flair to reflect that. (edit: Still Verizon. It has the best coverage in my area)

    Crap. I just confirmed this with my wife's (TF) phone and my (BYOP) phone. She can still renew for a year for $60 total but the cheapest option for me is $100 now, and it'll bloat my balance which...

    Nearest Family Dollar to me is 200 miles away in Idaho. Several Dollar Trees here in town but I've never set foot in one.

    I'm quite happy with my Galaxy S5. I have no intention of switching until the need arises, like if it breaks or gets lost/stolen. Or the later S models fall into my price range. Don't want an S6...

    Wow. I do have Comcast internet (no other good choices here) and may have to look into that. But not until the service days I bought last week run out, and that'll be October 2018. Tracfone's got...

    I think you'll like the S5. It's an amazing phone that no longer costs an arm and a leg.

    The only non-amazing thing about it is the battery life. Fortunately, the S5 is the last of the S series...

    Getting a smart phone balance from Tracfone can take anywhere from 30 seconds to a day or more. Best thing I've found is to open the app (I gave up on the widget long ago) and hit the circular arrow...

    If by 'credit' you mean service time (the time your phone is active) then yes, it's added on to the end of what you already have. You won't 'lose' any time by applying it early.

    Weird. When I posted earlier it wasn't letting me past the login screen but now it is. Trust Tracfone to make me look like a fool. Anyway, thanks for responding.
