      Answer

      Don't bet on it. Tracfone told me my Verizon iPhone 5C was compatible but after at least forty hours and a month and a half of run around with TracFones customer no-service I still have no access to cellular data. Had it for about a week and then it was gone again. Apple store and Verizon store both say nothing wrong with phone but they both believe there is something wrong with me for dealing with TracFone.

        Answer

        Dear valued customer: The BYOP activation kit includes all the compatible SIM cards for GSM phones and "Network Access Code" to register CDMA phones. In addition, the package will include a $45 service card. You would be able to purchase the activation bundle at your nearest Wal Mart.

      Is this the Tracfone 4GLTE card for CDMA (Verizon)   (2 Answers)

      I know that Tracfone has 3 different activation cards for bringing your own phone. The one in your photo does not look like the 4GLTE CDMA card which is the one I want.

          Answer

          I bought the MotoG 4th Gen phone and the SIM kit. It worked fine in connecting to the CDMA service. Verizon network is the best in my area too. Took only a few minutes to get this phone on line.

            Answer

            You won't lose your minutes, but you will lose the tripling feature(if you had it on the old phone). If you were like me, one of the main reasons I bought the Tracfone Id did was the triple Talk/Text/Data feature. If you buy 100 talk minutes, you get text and data along with it. This set up goes bye bye if you switch phones, under the same account. That's how they get ya.

                    I ask the question and found out later that any smartphone that you connect to the TracFone network does get triple minutes, text, and data that you add to it.
