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???

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

sparticus100bc states his experience with the new LG 305C (CDMA - Verizon)

I was able to finally get my WiFi to work switching to Static IP and manually typing in the IP Address, Subnet, Gateway, Primary DNS, etc. It now works!
But another BIG problem: No way to install free Java apps from boostapp.com. Keep getting download error. Problem mentioned in Howard Forums. When using the internally available Mini Opera browser, the phone will switch back to the default browser for downloads. TracFones wants you to pay for the apps, but Google Maps is not on the TracFone apps page. The internal browsers do no allow you to zoom in and stretch the screen like on the LG840G and Androids. As a result, the LG305C will be very limited on what you can use the browsers for. It is not going to be a popular model.

rated:
More information on the LG 305C from RogerD:

The once promising LG305C does have it's problems. Glad someone finally got one to work on Wi-Fi. Pain few would want to deal with. Problem installing Java apps has not been solved. Phone does not read the SD card folder where you put the Jar/Jad files for installation. Does not have a File Manager like the 800G/840G/306G where you do this. There is limited feedback about direct downloads, so I can't judge. I was able to directly download some apps on the 306G.
Yes, for some things the 305C will revert back to the stock browser, as does the 306G. The 840G may have, but I can't verify it without running on Wi-Fi which is not easily available to me.

Coupon says one use.  Up to 5 phones in that one use. 
You could create more accounts to get around the limits.  Each account would have its coupons. 
I used to shop for my Mother and Aunt, so I had their accounts to play with.
At my Krogers there was only the one full blown list price shown.
You would have to do a test purchase of just the phones to see the final price (before paying).
A test may use up the coupon for later use..

An off subject notation on Kroger e-coupons:  When checking out the computer will apply the e-coupon first.  If you have a larger discount paper coupon there is no way to overide the computer generated e-coupon.  You can go online and remove the e-coupon and later put it back.

The following experience was posted on another forum.

<<<<I bought a used Droid 3, activated it with a 60 minute card to try it out (with Tracfone BYOP program), and then called Miami to transfer service from my old (dumb) phone. Right up front the agent warned me that I could not transfer minutes back to a non-Android phone. Then she asked me how many minutes were on the new (recipient, Android) phone, which was most of the 180/180/180. She said that those minutes would be erased by the transfer! I asked if she couldn't then add the minutes back, and she said "no", even when I explained that I had heard of this being done. I explained that since I had to buy a used phone for BYOP that I wanted to test it before transferring service, that this did not leave a good way to do so without losing my service or minutes. She didn't budge. She did say something to the effect that if the new phone doesn't work they can make an exception and transfer service back - but I didn't get that clearly since it wasn't an interesting option for me any more. It's also possible she was thinking this was a new tracfone android (even though I'd said it was a used BYOP).

Does anyone else have recent experience transferring service to an active android phone? Is this another change of policy to simplify things for their CS folks (due to numerous screw-ups as accounted in this thread)? Might I have better luck if I get a different person? (she was in Miami and did seem pretty competent)>>>>

This is the first reported instance of not putting the minutes back on the Smartphone that ARE ERASED with the transfer.
You should call until you find someone that will do it.  Hope this is not some new policy.

  Works if you check out the item by itself.
I always use as many coupons as I can for the items purchased.  But I am not fanatical about it.
If the seller gives you a coupon discount he must make it up by overcharging the buyer who doesn`t use coupons.
If true, we are forced to use coupons to stay even.  It is the old,  giving with one hand and taking with the other.
