Tracfone Wireless has been providing no-contract wireless phone service since 1996. Since then, it's added to its value as a company in both plans and phone options. So, what do you do when you want to switch to Tracfone to take advantage of the good deals? This guide is your map. Read on and it will show you the way.
If you want to switch to Tracfone Wireless, you should learn about your all options first. Phones are not always budget friendly and you want to keep your number to make it easier for your contacts to reach you, right? That's why many mobile phone service providers offer a BYOP, otherwise known as the bring-your-own-phone option. It's straightforward, simply buy a compatible SIM card and a plan and you are good.
For the people who don't mind upgrading to the latest phone, Tracfone does offer unique deals on iPhones and Androids so you'll find a phone that suits your style. However, it's worth noting that Tracfone does not offer payment plans for its phones at this time, so it's best to sign up for the latest promotion. To do this, visit Tracfone's website and scroll down until you see the blue banner on the bottom of the page. Check the right-hand side and you should see a field for you to type in your email address and click on "Go" when you're done.
When you're ready to switch, you have choices on the best way to do so. You can buy online or use Tracfone's store finder to see if there's a retailer near you. Please keep in mind that there are both authorized stores that bear the Tracfone name and national retailers that are allowed to carry Tracfone. The store finder will let you know which stores are which.
To make a purchase online, visit Tracphone's website and click the shop tab. From there you can either shop for a SIM card, check your phone's compatibility or purchase a new phone. If you do buy new, you'll be able to buy a protection plan for you phone. If you're the type of person who'd rather talk to someone first, you can reach Tracfone's customer service Monday through Saturday.
