LG 3280 is roaming, charging double minutes. Tracfone no help.
LG 3280 is roaming, charging double minutes. Tracfone is NO help. Tried removing battery, adding zillions of codes, downloading stuff to it, and changing ph # even! I have spent hours on the phone with their so called Tech Support and have got no where. I had an old phone that roaming showed up on suddenly and they couldn't get it off after I spent 30 + hrs on the phone with them. So I ordered this phone in frustration and Whammy, same problem. PLease Help. Thanks

I haven't had any problems coverting minutes from tracfone to tracfone. I have bought smart phones from tracfone and converted minutes to it. If you are trying to convert minutes to a smart phone, that is not tracfone, like Net 10, I'm not sure it will work. Your best bet is to call Tracfone yourself and ask them. They are very helpful.
I believe this choice is to determine where most of calls/texts your will be made to. Choosing Home will designate your home area code as your most frequently called area (no roaming charges) while Travel will probably allow you to choose a different area code as your most frequently called area. When you call out of your chosen area code roaming charges apply. Example, if your current phone area code is 123 and you move to area code 321 you may want to change your Home or Travel designation depending on where most of calls are made to since you can't actually change your phone number.
As for your other question, you don't need wi-fi to text. It's like making a phone call, you simply choose message instead of dialing a number. Phone calls cost 1 unit, while text messages cost .30 units. (Units are the dollars you spend to buy minutes divided by the total number of minutes you receive) Hope that helps.
Have you thought about Universal Remotes? I bought a LG Harmony remote a year ago and never looked back. It plugs into your computer and after using the software you enter all the components of your home theatre, (including your 3280.) You can then use the one remote to control everything. Also some models have a charging base so you will not need to change batteries anymore.
Tracfone deletes SIM cards and the associated phone number from their registration database if the available airtime minutes goes to zero. Try buying minutes for the phone. (If you wait too long (~2 months), Tracfone may not be able to re-register the SIM card. In that case, you'll need a new SIM card.)
Do you remember when your minutes were due to expire? (Remember Tracfone doesn't do roll-overs of minutes.)
