Paid the 39.99 and called tracfone. All prior minutes, text, data restored + the 200 min tripled very surprised.

Original review posted by user Aug 27, 2016

I checked my balance on 8-24-16 and had over 3800 minutes,4400MB data, 3300 text, and service was good until 10-13-16.Eight hours later I go to use my phone it was deactivated.

Called tracfone reps several time to get hung up on and told many different stories of why. Next day tried again to speak to customer service and was told I have to purchase a $39.99 card with 200 minutes and nothing else could be done and to call back when I purchase it, then once again click hung up on. I was told that I did not purchase minutes for this phone, which is correct but on 12-7-15 I transferred 4950 minutes over to this phone because I upgraded it and got a text with the amount and my service is active thru 10-13-16. I then called corporate head quarters and talked to a rep that seemed to be concerned took my name and number and said she would call me back on Friday, guess what no call imagine that.

She said she works till 7PM and then I tried calling and they are closed at 5PM.

Sitting here with no phone and a loss of 3800 plus minutes gone and to get my number back I can only purchase the 200 minute $39.99 card ( the only one that loss prevention stated I could buy).Does this sound like blackmail or what but I guess when tracfone losses over 458,000 customers and 1.8 billion dollars in a year, you develop a scheme to make money back @ $40 a clip.

Reviewer is in unhappy mood. Please immediately contact the author of this review to discuss poor customer service of tracfone cell phone activation and associated monetary loss in the amount of $250. Tracfone needs to "reactivate my phone with the minutes i had remaining" according to poster's claims.

Other people also mentioned tracfone cell phone activation in their reviews. You may find this information helpful for further shopping at Tracfone.
