why do people make fun of tracfone?
They're not necessarily 25 cents a minute.
When it came close to having to recharge the phone, I'd get an email or phone call form Tracfone offering to extend the time for 15-30 days or some other deal to entice us into not letting it lapse. On average it cost us less than $10/month. How is that putting money through the shredder?
The phone sits now, about ready to retire it. There's still over 200 minutes left on it.
