Well, it’s “that time” of year for us again…. not the holidays, the time when I have to renew the cell phone coverage for the kids. All the younger kids use TracFone, but my oldest daughter and I use a contract carrier for our smartphones. My contract carrier recently informed me that I could “add a line” for as little as $10 a month! Whoa, that’s a deal, right?! So I did some checking into it…. and yyyeahhhh, rrright, $10 a month, my eye! $10 a month PLUS a $40 activation fee PLUS taxes, fees, more taxes on the fees, PLUS I’d have to pay extra for texting…. it’s just insane. I hate that kind of deception. Forget it.

So I’m sticking with TracFone. It’s really the best cell phone plan out there. I’ve checked all the others, and TracFone is the least expensive with the best coverage. They have a slew of new phones, too. I really like the Senior Value phone, the numbers are large and the phone interface is geared for folks with “older eyes.” I’m going to get the kids some QWERTY phones when it’s time to renew their coverage. They do a lot of texting and they’ll love them! Texting is CHEAP on TracFone, it only uses up 1/3 of a minute and minutes with TracFone can be as low as 9 cents each!

TracFone has NO activation fees, either. No terminations fees, no cancellation fees, no intrusive credit checks, no contracts, nothing like that. My husband, who delivers mail for the USPS, has a TracFone and he’s very happy with the coverage.

Rates are great– they REALLY ARE $10/month. The 1-year service cards cost us $120, and they come with bonus minutes which is plenty for the kids’ phones. I’m pretty impressed with TracFone. I used to hate their customer service (well, lack of it), but they have really improved that in the past two years. Definitely check out TracFone if you want inexpensive, Get into Everywhereness service. It’s worth it, just check out the video!

    Thank you for this well-written post. It reminded me of all the reasons why I love tracfone phones. I have been using net10 and straight talk for the past couple of years, but my next phone (I go through a lot) will have to be a tracfone!

    My friend has just bought the Tracfone SVC Samsung T155G and the surprise cost of only $14.99, I’m not quite at the senior age yet but this phone is light and comfortable to carry, and since a lot of seniors don’t have that much spare money I think the Tracfone service at $7/month is an absolute bargain. I’m just glad that seniors can afford an emergency phone, which can save their life one day in a medical crisis.
