You cannot use a promo code with the Tracfone Androids or the Tracfone BYOP program:
So if you have a regular Tracfone add any airtime you may have to it first
Then transfer airtime to the Smartphone.

If you have a 60 minute promo code, do NOT think of it as JUST 60 minutes, remember when that 60 minutes transfers to the Smartphone it triples, giving 60 minutes of talk PLUS 60 text PLUS 60MB of data. You actually lose 60 + 60 + 60.
(Smartphones triple-triple the airtime).

IMPORTANT: Airtime cannot be moved from a Tracfone Smartphone`s three bucket system BACK to a single bucket Tracfone. It can only move forward to another smartphone. FIRST make sure you like the Smartphone before loading airtime onto it.

IMPORTANT:  Tracfone NOW forces your phone number to go with ALL airtime transfers.  If you do not understand this you could lose your long time important phone number.

A major Page Plus (Verizon) respected dealer has just confirmed that Page Plus will have 4G near the end of August .
Page Plus is a subsidiary of American Movil, so will Tracfone be included at that time?
Please read the whole thread

Another poster stated:
I've heard this rumor a few days ago that PagePlus, Straight Talk, and Selectel were all going to get Verizon 4G LTE sometime this Fall, but this is the first that I have seen anything to confirm that any portion of the rumor is true.

So, I feel that Straight Talk and Net10 will definitely get Verizon 4G LTE. But, what's going to happen to Tracfone's BYOP plan???

Side note on disturbing service from USPS Priority Mail
5 orders today, yes 5 and 1/3 of them  in the past from
shopcelldeals  >> the eBay dealer mentioned many times in this thread
>>All sent on day of purchase or the next USPS PM.

Just look at the delay in getting 11 days after purchase and for an unknown reason all went thru
Federal Way Washing which is a media mail hub I am told by my postal carrier..

For those wondering about the Tracfone Android`s and the Tracfone BYOP program`s - Verizon coverage.
Look at the Verizon prepaid coverage map:
http://vzwmap.verizonwireless.com/dotcom/coveragelocator/default... 
Put the dot in the circle next to "prepaid" and click on "refresh map"
In the white areas you will have no service what so ever.

Page Plus Cellular is now owned by Tracfone family, so Verizon 4G LTE may soon apply to Tracfone.

?? Can I be directed to a site to determine
or
be told which service a particular Tracfone uses.
It is the LG 236C

I would think it is Verizon....


I am aware of how to know which the GSM's use...

rated:
It would either be Verizon or US Cellular. Go to the page linked to below and put in your cell number and it will tell you what carrier the number is through.

  They are new and sealed, no number on them.


I was hoping I could read on the box to determine which service is used
and you can with the GSM models, P4 being AT&T and P5 Tmobile

A CDMA Tracfone will only be activated with US Cellular as the primary provider if it is Tracfones last resort. Tracfone wants to activate all their CDMA phones on Verizon.

  That is correct. 
We do not know the current agreement between Tracfone and US Cellular.
You DO NOT want US Cellular as the primary carrie,r unless it is your last resort.
