How Do I Report a Stolen Tracfone?

If your Tracfone has been lost or stolen, you want to take steps immediately to protect your account. Tracfone does not refund unused minutes on a stolen phone, so you want to deactivate the device as soon as you notice it is missing. You will need to contact Tracfone customer support to report a stolen phone and start a claim on your Mobile Protect PLUS insurance.

Tracfone allows you the convenience of a cellphone without the burden of a contract. As a Tracfone user, you are in control of your monthly bill, but what happens if your Tracfone is stolen? How do you report a stolen Tracfone? You can get information and assistance from Tracfone customer support here, and below are steps you can take to report a stolen Tracfone.

Reporting a Stolen Tracfone

If your Tracfone is lost or stolen, you should immediately contact customer support here to report the matter and deactivate your lost or stolen phone. This will prevent the person who took your Tracfone from using the remaining service/minutes on the device. Tracfone can work with you to help recover or replace your stolen device.

Important Information About Stolen Phones

Below is some important information about stolen Tracfone devices:

  1. Unused Minutes: Tracfone does not refund any unused minutes on the device if it is stolen. Therefore, it is important to have the device deactivated as soon as you realize it is missing.
  2. Cloning: Sometimes criminals will clone phone numbers. If your Tracfone number has been cloned, your device may show "No Service." When this happens, contact Tracfone customer support immediately.
  3. PIN: In some areas, you may be required to enter a PIN to use your Tracfone. This feature is designed to prevent wireless fraud and protect your device and account.
  4. Reactivation: If you recover your lost or stolen phone, you can reactivate your account. You will need to provide information to show proof of ownership of the account in order to reactivate.

Protecting Your Phone

You can opt to purchase Mobile Protect PLUS for your Tracfone. If you have Mobile Protect PLUS, your device is covered in the event it is stolen. When you file a claim with your Mobile Protect PLUS, if your claim is approved, you will be eligible for an affordable replacement phone once your deductible has been met. This is another added layer of protection for your device and can save you a great deal of out-of-pocket expense if your phone is stolen.

If you find that your Tracfone has been stolen, contact Tracfone customer support immediately to have your phone deactivated and to start a claim if you have Mobile Protect PLUS. For more information or assistance, contact Tracfone customer support here.
