When on the HSN site for the Moto 431G play the video and listen to what they say beginning with 3:10 remaining. They say it is OK to load all the minutes onto the new 431 phone and if you really like your old Tracfone you can transfer all the remaining minutes off the 431 to your old phone. Not sure if that is Tracfone approved? They do go on to suggest reloading minutes on to the 431 and give it to someone.
this deal costs $10 more, and has 200 less minutes, and comes with only Double Minutes for Life, but an extra year of connect time and comes with an AT&T SIM...The phones are ENTIRELY DIFFERENT, and you would have to compare the feature set for both phones! For anyone who runs out of connect days before they run out of talk time minutes, this could be a better deal. Which is better? You have to decide for yourself!
You make a good point pennsatuckian, not every good deal is the better deal for every user`s usage. My personal usage, with several phones activated at once, would normally make me choose the deal you posted.
The link that pennsatuckian provided is for a VA type Tracfone. It activates with 10 or 20 minutes and 365 days. The airtime card is a 200 minute/90 day. I do not recommend holding a SCD airtime pin for a year or more. At times the pin has been on a slip of paper and other times it was an airtime card with a paper strip with the pin, stuck over where the silver pin strip is normally located. I am not saying it would expire, but what would be your recourse one two or three years down the road if you had a problem adding it. You know how buggy Tracfone transactions can be in addition to poorly trained CSR`s. I recommend looking at SCD`s every year for the best deal for the next year of service. Some of the bundles contain some very nice phones for an upgrade.
If anyone wants to try a Tracfone Android (Verizon service), here is their bottom of the line model for $24.99. It is just barely a step up from the feature phones. You must activate all Tracfone Androids with purchased airtime. But they do Triple + Triple the airtime. You can only transfer minutes/text/data(the three buckets) from one Android to another, not to a single bucket Tracfone. http://www.ebay.com/itm/LG-Optimus-Dynamic-Android-Smartphone-Tr...
Best Buy still has the ZTE Valet phone with Android 4.x for $49.99. This is a true smartphone, albeit a lower-end smartphone. Many of the other phones are just feature phones and don't offer true web-browsing or the ability to run Android apps.
Target B&M also had this phone for the same price a few weeks ago, but I can't verify the price today because it's not on their website. They've got the ZTE 665, which is probably the same phone, for $99.95
FWIW, the ZTE operates on the Verizon 3G network.
The phone has the Triple Minutes for life feature. So a $19.99 card gives you 3x60 min AND 3x60 texts AND 3x60 MB of data for 90 days.
This is a great value for light phone users, especially if you want the smartphone features. If nothing else, it can be used as a reasonably priced MP3 player and wifi micro-tablet, even if you don't buy the airtime cards.

gmannix said: http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/reply.php?catid=18&threadid=8347... Phone's a loser, but $19.99 for a 200 minute card to add to existing phone!?! Oh now, wait a minute! The big Easy phone has limited features...NO CAMERA, NO BLUETOOTH, NO WIRED HEADSET JACK. NO INTERNET ACCESS. NO GAMES If you must have any of those features, then this phone is not for you. If you don't need them, then this phone works well as a cellphone! It is ideal for many people who use a cellphone for emergency use, and not for routine/social contacts.
For a HUGE PLUS, THE PHONE HAS ONE FULL YEAR OF SERVICE. If you put the included 200 minute card on this phone, it will have ~15 months of service, and up to ~480 minutes of talk time for< $30 shipped via USPS Express Mail.
There are two types of Tracfone customers. Type 1. Those who will run low on airtime minutes but have plenty of connect days remaining, ~~ If you are a Type 1. Triple Minutes, Internet Access, Camera, Bluetooth, MP3, Micro SD card slot etc. etc. will turn your crank. Type 2. Those who have plenty of airtime minutes remaining but will run low on connect days. ~~If you are a Type 2. then the Big Easy may be ideal.
I am a Type 2, and the Big Easy works for me.
Anyone out there who wants a money making idea, figure out a way to buy/swap/trade used Tracfones from Type 1 customers and sell/swap/tradel them to Type 2 customers and buy/swap/trade used Tracfones from Type 2 customers and sell/swap/trade them to Type 1 customers. See you in the Shark Tank!
Peale said: Would you please post a link to this LG3280R with a 200 minute card for $19.99? Thanks! That deal has been gone for years. The OP doesn't post here much anymore so the thread title hasn't gotten edited in all that time.
Here is a post from another site pertaining to my EX431G bundle post of March 7th (those who have received their bundle confirm it comes with AT&T SIM`s)
Good news to all that are curious as to the 200 min card. I contacted shopcelldeals regarding the expiration time frame, and if in fact the cards can be used on any TF. other than the one being listed here...
