Tracfone destroyed my account in one phone call...
A week ago I activated a Motorola W376g. After four days, the phone failed. It wouldnâ€™t turn on at all. On Saturday, I called Tracfone, went through the normal routine of checking the phone out. The support rep. told me a new phone would arrive in 3-5 days.
Today, Wednesday October 14, the new phone arrived. I called TF to have my old number ported over. Over the next 20 minutes the rep asked for my SIM card numbers, the phone number to be ported, all the usual stuff.
I was then put ...

AVOID - AVOID - AVOID - AVOID - AVOID - AVOID - AVOID
After 9 mos. of using their service (unlimited auto bill)... I woke up one morning 02/01/10 and they had given my phone number to someone else and deactivated my phone! So all my calls were going to someone else!
I spent over 6 hours on the phone trying to get the issue resolved.
After about an hour they finally admitted they had erred in reassigning my number to someone else. And they indicated they would give me my number back... but... they could only do so... if... if drove 500 miles from Dallas (where I was located to St. Louis) to return to my original area code, so they could reactivate my phone in that area code. In the meantime... I ...
Tracfone NIGHTARE. Is there anyone who can help?
In January I got him a new phone and tried to transfer the old number to the new phone, because he really has his heart set on keeping his phone number. (I had not activated this phone yet or anything before having the man transferring it.) Something went wrong I guess because I was never able to make a call.
After a few days, I called again was sent a new sim card. When I got the sim card I called them to activate it (making it clear I wanted to keep the original account's phone number, and she told me it would be the same) and after an hour the phone worked, but with a completey DIFFERENT phone number.
So once AGAIN I called for assistance and after...

When is Tracfone going to join the smartphone/PDA revolution?
Or any pre-pay service for that matter? Could I buy an unlocked phone and use my Tracfone SIM in it?
best way to add minutes
I've read on some sites that it isn't really a good deal to buy a prepaid card, only because you may be able to get a better deal from the tracfone website. I have the motorola w376 with double minutes, so even if I do buy a $20 or $25 card, it still seems like a good deal to me.

1.Bluetooth-can she send contacts and pictures or only use it for handsfree calling?
2.When I went into her phone it has a place to format Initial Storage device---is that the SIM card? If so does that give her external memory?
3.It has a SIM app. Only option is to unlock-whenever you unlock it gives a # and if you hit the OK button it says IMEI checksum 5657-hit it again and it says random# 69590401------translation on this question (which isn't really a question) please.
4.It has an F.M. radio, which requires a headset-does this mean if she has a headset plugged into the phone can she receive F.M. radio and ho...

Deleting Voicemail from a landline
I have been getting voicemail messages from people I do not know. I want to know how I can delete these voicemail messages using my landline so that it doesn't cost me Tracfone minutes.
When I listen to the voicemail messages using my landline, I am not given the option to delete them or even to save them. It just goes directly from one message to the next until they are all played and then returns to an options menu. I cannot find this information in my phone manual either and I have been getting no help from emails to Tracfone Customer Service or their Telephone helpline.
I also tried to delete them by going to the
Voicemail Menu on my Tracfone ...
