      Answer

      Yes, it does. You don't need to download anything extra. On the keyboard, touch the settings key and a pop-up will give you some choices: touch the microphone icon and it will switch to google voice input.

        Answer

        Yes, it does. Smartphones have separate buckets of units for voice calls, text messaging and data usage and have the Triple Minutes feature. For example, a 60 minutes “Pay As You Go” TracFone card redeemed on a smartphone will provide 180 minutes for voice, 180 text messages and 180 MB of data. Voice calls are charged at the rate of one (1) unit per minute. Text messages are charged at the rate of one (1) unit per text. Data is charged based on actual usage.

        Good morning, Reed. No, they will not appear on the main screen. In order to check your minutes balance, you must download our TracFone My Account application from Google Play.

        Yes you can. I did this for my mom. She had an old Trac Phone flip phone. We transferred her number and minutes to this phone.

          Only if you do it over the phone. If you do it online, you lose your minutes.

            Answer

            The main camera has an LED flash, the other (selfie) camera has a feature that turns up the screen brightness to light your face, which sort of helps in dark rooms but isn't that effective.
