    Waiting the 30 days to see if Tracfone correctly restores his/her original minutes/text/data balances.
    Approximately 10 more days to go.
    Yep. Everything went back to what it was before I added the unlimited plan. I wish I could set it up to Auto-Pay every month. If you're not really paying attention then you could easily forget to reload. Until auto-pay happens, I'll just have to set a reminder in my calendar app.

    I assume these UL TT+Data plans will stack like the other offerings, so perhaps buy a few months . Use calendar for expiration notice.
    If you can get the 1GB data offer @$8 + promo of 500Mb = 1.5GB for just over $5 a GB, the the $20 UL plan could work well if ones data needs are in that 1-2GB range per month. Like having a reserve of data when needed. This might work well for my spouse.

    I wouldn't assume that. This is unlike any other TF offering. It may work like that, it may at some point work that way, or it could be a typical TF cluster.

    Just look at the different statements on what happens to the included data after 30 days.

    Does a data add-on go to the UL plan balance or the PayGo balance? Can the PayGo data balance be used if the UL data depletes?

    Supposed to use paygo data when UL is exhausted. But we have no reports to confirm that.

    And no one has said they tried adding data while on UL.

    I think we only have one report on what happened at the end of the UL plan. And that didn't match what TF said (kept remaining data from UL).

    According to the chat rep I talked to, the paygo balances are in queue behind the unlimited plan, I'm going to let mine expire to see what happens to my missing "in queue" additional balances....

    I would load up on paygo data in reserve prior to starting the UL plan, because as I understand it, paygo data is tapped when UL data is

    exhausted. This would be for my spouse as she typically uses 1-2 GB/mo. That’s my reasoning.

    Why are the Unlimited cards showing the Verizon network? No other card type has showed any network. Will they not work in AT&T or T-Mobile service?

    Poor color choice.

    Should read "networks" so not just one.

    Yep, it's going to confuse buyers. Not only the thousands of single plan cards already in retail stores, but they have introduced multiple plan cards recently.

    Curious if anyone has confirmed carryover of unused data from these Unlimited TT + data plans ( assuming no lapse in service of the UL plan so that it will carryover as indicated by TF FAQ) ?

    I must say that the Unlimited cards have not shown up, b&m, yet in my area. Ive had to use my CC to buy a couple for two people I help with TF. The cashback is adding up....

    They appear to have changed the card to "networks", but not the map color.
