Absolutely, what you need to do first though, is have your IMEI and SIM serial numbers handy from the first phone. Simply push the center, round button in the middle of the top array, and it should open to Prepaid, select that and go to the 2cd option which is IMEI and select that, and write down that number. Then do the same thing with the 3rd option, which is SIM. Once you have those 2 numbers in hand, do the same ith your new phone. Once done, call the 1 800 number for your area and speak with a represenative and they will walk you through the rest of the proscess and add your existing minutes to your new phone.

How do Transfer data from my old tracfone?


Here is the information from the Tracfone website.
Transfer Number > Phone Upgrades
  • What is a phone transfer?A transfer is when you wish to transfer your phone number and minutes from one TracFone to another.
  • I just bought a new TracFone. How do I transfer my phone?
    In order to transfer your phone, go to the "Activate/Reactivate Phone" button on our website and then select the option that you need. You can also contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-867-7183 so that a representative can transfer that information for you. Please note that when you complete a phone upgrade from a smartphone to a non-smartphone, you will not be able to transfer any remaining minutes in your account, so you will lose those minutes.
  • If I buy a new TracFone, can I transfer my remaining minutes and phone number to the new phone?
    Yes, you can transfer the minutes and phone number into your new TracFone by going to the TracFone main page and clicking on the "Activate/Reactivate Phone" button. Then, select the option that you need (phone, SIM, or Bring Your Own Phone CDMA). You can also contact our Customer Care Center at 1-800-867-7183 so that a representative can transfer that information for you. Please note that when you complete a phone upgrade from a smartphone to a non-smartphone, you will not be able to transfer any remaining minutes in your account, so you will lose those minutes.
  • If I currently have a TracFone smartphone and want to transfer to a non-smartphone, will I be able to transfer my remaining minutes to my new phone?
    No. When you complete a phone transfer from a smartphone to a non-smartphone, you will not be able to transfer any remaining minutes from your old phone (so you will have to forfeit those minutes), but you do get to keep your service days.

I have a tracphone motorola V170. The flip door broke. Can I buy a new motorola phone not a v170 and transfer the sim card?


Ah, I am a former tracfone customer, and the v170 phone was my first model. :) . Unfortunately no, because all of tracfone's phone models use a different sim card, even if you attempted to replace the sim card with an identical phone it would not work, the phone simply reads, UNREGISTERED SIM CARD. Its tracfone's way of making money, so unfortunately you'll have to put in your contacts all by hand :( which is a major pain in the rear.
