Be aware that if you purchase a Tracfone that you will be locked in to one provider. They don't say so on their website to make sure you ask .


. in my case Verizon doesn't provide coverage to my area, but the phone they sent me only works with Verizon.

Product or Service Mentioned: Samsung Electronics Galaxy J3 Cell Phone.

Reason of review: Wasn't made aware of carrier this phone would be locked in to..

Monetary Loss: $80.

Preferred solution: Let the company propose a solution.

I liked: Chat feature.

I didn't like: Not given all information, Had to spend 2 hours to activate phone and was passed to 3 reps.

Hi Alex, I just wanted you to know that I clicked on the link you provided. I ended up chatting with one representative and after about 10 minutes with him, he gave me a reference number 1750388805 and another phone number (department) to call.

Rhea: Inquiries regarding unlocked phones are handled by our Business Assurance Department. You will have to speak to a specialist directly. A representative can be reached at 1-888-442-5102. I called that number and though things sounded positive .

. . . I was eventually told .

. . after another 1/2 hour on the phone that they couldn't help me. The only solution I was given was to purchase another phone.

And to make sure I ASK which carrier it accepts. Again . . .

why isn't that just stated in the phone description on your website! It seems that this phone should be capable of being unlocked so that I don't have to jump through hoops just to access Tracfone with a Tmobile SIM! This incident has changed my opinion about Tracfone.

I'm really not impressed with either your customer service nor Tracfone's technical capabilities. QuickZebra167
