What Does Tracfone Have to Offer?
Tracfone is a cellphone network provider offering prepaid mobile to customers with both basic phones and smartphones. Their plans are enticing because there is the potential for unlimited talk, text and web for a fraction of the price that any contract competitor might offer. With no pressure to be sucked into a one- or two-year contract, you are free to purchase minutes when you want and upgrade your phone as you see fit. Once you see how many great plans Tracfone has to offer, you will be more tempted than ever to switch.
For anyone who is just interested in a basic phone, Tracfone offers the all-you-need $30-per-month plan. While true smartphones are not eligible for this plan, there are many great phones available for it with texting and Internet capabilities. Under this plan, you will be awarded 1000 minutes of talk time, 1000 texts and 30MB of mobile web that you can use over a period of 30 days. While minutes do not carry over, it is so inexpensive to refill each month that this could hardly be considered a gripe.
The next plan is the unlimited one-month plan, which is $45 per month. This plan provides you with unlimited talk, text and web for a period of 30 days. More importantly, all phones — including smart devices — are eligible for this plan. Tracfone offers many of the latest smartphones on the market, including their version of the iPhone 5, but they also have a SIM card program that allows you to place their SIM in any CDMA, unlocked GSM or T-Mobile-compatible phone as long as you use it with an unlimited plan.
A step up from the unlimited one-month plan is the unlimited international plan at $60 per month. This plan is identical to the regular unlimited plan, except that unlimited international calling is added into the mix. If you have family living in another country, this is the plan for you.
Finally, if you want to save a little cash, Tracfone offers three extended plans. The three-month, six-month and one-year unlimited plans at $130, $255 and $495 respectively will allow you to purchase several months of service in advance so you do not have to think about refilling. Being able to save a few bucks in the process is a nice touch. Regardless of what plan you choose, if you want quality cell service at a very affordable price, Tracfone is the right provider for any situation.
