    Not the first time a glitch/error was duplicated.

    There was one that lasted for several weeks that lots got.

    The system is often like roulette.

    Yep, like the glitch that doubled the service days when doing a transfer. Took TF quite a few months to fix it. Some people ended up with 20+ years of service. I'm sure that wasn't an unadvertised promotion.

    I don't remember what year it was happening but I transferred 2 numbers and got 5 or 6 additional years. My main phone has 16 years on it now.

    I ended up with service out to 2039 that way. I'm happy with it.

    I wonder what Tracfone will be like in 20 years.

    If everyone has many years of service, then to stay in business Tracfone must find ways to sell you airtime rather than days or phone bundles:
    1- you already use a lot of airtime on your own, depleting at least one of the 3 buckets
    2- Tracfone finds ways for us to use a lot from the bucket with the most profit for them
    3- Tracfone sells mostly the Smartphone only airtime that causes little used buckets to grow in size unproportional to the others.
    4- Tracfone steals 2/3 buckets contents during transfers from those who do not document airtime in chat before transferring service.

    Has anyone lost Days during a transfer? I have only had a problem with the buckets, never the days

    I get the $35 card once a year and then they ask me if I'd like to add anything else. I always select the year of service for $60, I think it is.

    So my total yearly cell phone bill is only $95, say $100 once Mr. Government Man steals a few dollars in tax.

    And I never run out of minutes or texts or data. In fact, I have an abundance of all of them.

    I've never hit the lottery, but I get what I pay for and it suits me just fine. I've never had a single problem and that deal can't be beat by any other carrier out there.

    Then my mint condition iPhone 7 in matte black with 256 gigs I only paid $300 for on the Bay, that thing's sweet, I walk into the 711 and wave that thing around the register like Mac Daddy when I pay for my Slim Jims with that Apple Pay thing. You don't even need data for that to work anyway.

    I'm a cheapskate and a half, lemme tell yas. lol.

    Hope you bought Twinkies as a dessert. One can never have enough hydrogenated vegetable fats.
