If I let my minutes expire, how long til I really lose my number? I know in the past, they "extend" it for you then several times they try to get you to renew, but I want to change the number. I'm in no hurry, as I have 2 other tracfones Very Happy But how long until I actually lose the number? Thanks!

You might use it when you feel better
When you're home

i will stop myself making jokes about the fact that you not only have one TF but you have 3... I mean.... CMON!!!

Now we started keeping the number for a while even if the phone is deactivated so you can just call and get the number changed, or reactivate it and ask to get a different number when they ask u if u want to keep it or not..... easy as pie... piece of cake and all that...

3 Tracfones... well I've seen worse... Rolling Eyes

It's true! Don't have to worry whether I'll have analog roaming either. It's ALL analog! My i560 often gets jealous when out in the boonies.

I keep mine for boonie coverage. Yeah, in the future, they won't work. By then, CDMA and GSM will be in a lot more of the same places where only analog worked.

I keep mine in the car for emergencies (911 calls are free).

yes, they are free... but u should never use a prepaid TF as an emergency phone. its not secure. it says so in the terms and conditions even!

I would only use it if I was someplace I couldn't get a signal on my regular cell. Then, depending on the situation, I might use a payphone instead.

My truck has a C.B., but when I go out with my family, we take the wife's car, and this is the one with the Nokia. It's rare when we encounter a situation where our regular cellphones don't work, but there are places, and it would be terrible to be trapped under a car with no way to call for help!

Of course... I just dont rely on them, although I guess in a situation as you describe its ok.
