A:AnswerHi. This is Frank from TracFone Wireless. The plan is only good for 30 days. Once your 30 days are up, you will need to add for another $15 to continue using your service even though the 500 mins call/text are not used up. Thank you.
A:AnswerYes, this card will give you 500 talk minutes... and more: 1000 outgoing text messages, and 500 MB of data (up to 4G depending on signal area). It will keep your phone active for 30 days. If you have leftover mins/texts they will roll over to a new activation card. (I don't know if data does cuz I always use it up! lol) But having leftover mins/texts at the end of 30 days will NOT keep your phone active on their own. (Need to purchase another card to keep active.)
Tracfone has other cards that are minutes only if that is all you want, and I think they make some that have no service expiration dates -if you find those then the phone service is active for as long as you still have minutes and doesn't switch off at 30 days... consider your needs and always read the descriptions closely!
