Tracfone Prepaid Cellphone Service Compliment - Tracfone
COLORADO -- I have had contract phones for a long time. I am not a person who lives on their cellphone. I decided to try prepaid cellphone service instead. I tried Verizon, T-Mobile, Virgin, etc.. I still found that my minutes were temporary, meaning that they would be erased after a month. I also had trouble with coverage at home and when I traveled. My friend suggested I try Tracfone. I did my research and purchased one. Here is what I found. Unlike any other carrier, Tracfone doesn't have their own service (towers,etc..). They have agreements with all the carriers, so their phones piggyback off whatever carrier is available. Since having Tracfones for a year now, I have experienced the benefit of this in that I have more coverage in more places that any phone I've had previously. When I purchased my first phone (I have 2 Tracfones now-Nokia 1100,Motorola v60icdma), I got a yearcard for it. My minutes are safe for a year. Before I activated my Tracfone, my friend sent me a "referral" from the company. It gave me one hundred minutes on my phone for free! I though that was a great addition to everything else. There is a lot more detail I could give about the phones themselves etc. If you have any questions or need a referral for yourself, feel free to email me, sunnyryanj is my address at yahoo.
The only thing one should consider about Tracfone is which phone is right for your needs. I started with a Motorola v60i w/cdma technology. I find it gets the best coverage when traveling but it does charge double minutes when roaming. Because of this, I also purchased a Tracfone Nokia 1100 w/gsm technology. It actually get better signal in the town I'm in but not as good when I'm traveling through the mountains. I doesn't have roaming charges, same rate anywhere in the country.
Overall, Tracfone has been exactly what I needed in a cellphone, because I don't live on mine, if I did, I'd get some contract plan. I use my phone maybe once or twice a day and I don't stay on it for hours.
