Finally got my missing minutes speaking to three more reps. I was transferred to a second-level escalation site.
The representative there was able to add my 3000 minutes to my existing phone. This is been one of the most labor- intensive tasks I have ever been through. The second level rep did with eight people could not do. I recommend highly that you ask for a second level escalation if you're having any problems.
I plan to stay with TracFone but I am very leery of their customer service.
Becareful who you speak to. You're only as good as the last rep that answered.

My Dad died so we needed to transfer almost 4000 mins to my existing Tracfone. To make a LONG story short I called customer serv 8 days in a row, each time I was told it could be done, but so far only a 1000 mins hv transferred!
As I type I am on the phone again with them. They gave me a 2nd tier tech support number, spoke to a Meg WHO HUNG UP ON ME. She wanted me to get a new SIM card and purchase an airtime card plus she said I had to reactivate Dad's line to save the 4000 mins. I refuse to give up.
Still on hold with regular cust serv. I will keep you posted....
This reviewer shared experience about poor customer service and wants this business to have the product delivered as the author lost $500. The author is overall dissatisfied with Tracfone. The most disappointing about tracfone sim card from Tracfone was rude customer service people, service while trying add minutes and unempowered service reps Reviewer wants customer support to reach out to him or her ASAP for further discussion of this matter.
