Tracfone sent me an email saying my phone was old and service would be stopped. Bought the latest tracfone, lady at customer service screwed the whole deal up, didn't transfer 5000 minutes (triple on old phone) nor the new 90 day service plan. She had no idea what she...

This happened to me a little over a year ago. I lost 3500 minutes 33,000 texts and 5MB of data.

I was never able to get anything back because when the person screwed up the transfer, it set everything to zero.

Even though they could see what I had before the transfer, they refused to give apply to the new phone that I bought after the one I had had been stolen. I always felt that Tracfone allow the person who stole my phone to reset a password and setup an account.

Product purchased but never received, customer service cannot issue a refund

Purchased a Tracfone from their website Tracfone.com but cellphone purchased was never received. Tracfone Customer Service is based upon an existing Tracfone telephone number.. without a Tracfone number they cannot issue a refund.Because I had purchased a cell phone and not yet an existing customer with a Tracfone issued telephone number as I had no phone to activate, Customer Service said they could not process my request. A catch 22 built into their lack of customer service.

User's recommendation: Buyer beware.. Tracfone uses FedEx for shipping itmes and requires a signature upon delivery. In my area FedEx drivers don't attempt to deliver as they don;t want to go through trouble of getting a signature... thus, package is not delivered. FedEx can't provide service, Tracfone denies any responsibility.

Over priced

Bought a Samsung A 20 about a week ago to day got e-mail, and they took off 50.00 more dollars. Calling customer service to ask about it, and he said there is nothing that can be done or at least he would not do anything. I will not do any more business with Tracfone.

User's recommendation: Be carful when you buy from Tracfone.

I purchased a samsung galaxy j3 from Central City Ky. walmart in may 2020, I also purchased the 2 year warranty with it.2 weeks ago my phone started acting up not responding to swiping the screen to unlock, it would stay frozen up for hours , so i did a factory reset on it. That made it worst so now it will not respond to anything I do. it is stuck on the select a language page. I never put minutes on it so I never had a phone number but the ieme # is 353168****186688 and the serial # is RF8MC0TOP3E ,and the model # is SM-S260DL(GP) GPSAS260DCGB. The FCC ID # is A3LSMS260DL. My name is Nate Cadena my address is 621 Langley rd. Belton, Ky. 42324, please let me know if you need more information. My contact phone number is 270)754-****.Thank You

User's recommendation: always buy the warranty, it's worth the $10 charge and the headache.

Poor Service

Bought a TracFone 5 years ago. No problems. Decided to upgrade and bought a new Tracfone. Couldnt get it activated and it had a busy signal that would not go away. Sent it back for refund. Tried the Help chat line. They would close my session before I could get a response typed in. Called the 800 number and was told that it would be another 30 Days before I could get a refund. TracFone needs to be investigated by the federal government. Businesses are borderline CRIMINAL.

User's recommendation: Stay away from this company.

I don't use my Tracfone much, I only turn it on when I go to the store. (I'm old) One day I turned it on and received a notice that my plan had expired two days earlier. They only sent me that one text, I used to get all kinds of junk from them by email. When I went to...

Tracfone Service Transfer

Unfair policy.

Tracfone stopped connecting to provider after less than a month and a half. Contacted tracfone twice, support could not fix it. ordered new tracfone to replace it and switch data, photos ect. Had problems switching, did not work, took a while. Called tracfone to get a refund, I was sent to ups store with a tracking no. Told by ups store no account with tracfone. Called tracfone again, told i would receive a shipping label in the mail. Never got it.Called again and was told after 30 days no refund. Was not told this before i was put thru all the hassell, and now will not refund on a phone that only worked less than 90 days. Horrible phone and customer service, Never buy tracfones.

User's recommendation: Never buy tracfones.

No contact

We are dealing with another HELPFUL vendor. Tracfone never responded in any way.

User's recommendation: #1--They're expensive. #2-If you have a problem, good luck getting in contact with anyone helpful. My sister burned up over 200 minutes only to be told she would need to contact Tech Support.
