Tracfone support freaked out when I wanted to just transfer sim cards. You would have thought it would disable them from tracking you or something! But you definitely can NOT transfer sim cards! (But I have accomplished so many things in my life by just doing it before I was told it can't be done, that I recommend that you just go for it! It is only $10 for another brand new one, so not much to lose!)

Yes, you should be able to transfer the sim cards with no problems and the minutes will transfer with the sim as well.

How do i transfer my minutes onone tracfone to another tracfone


They don't allow that. Your minutes are assigned to your SIM card. They only transfer if you transfer your SIM card to the new phone.

I dropped my LG Tracfone in water so I bought a new one. I cant figure out how to activate my new phone and transfer my old number to the new phone. Can you help?


Go to your service provider's storefront (where they sell phones and service them). They can put a new SIM card into your phone and program it with your old phone number in a few minutes. If you are buying service from them it should be free or maybe $10 for the card.

Activating my tracfone using my pre-existing Home phone no.


Scott, To transfer your number from your Old Service Provider to TracFone Wireless, you must ask TracFone to Port your existing telephone number. TracFone Wireless will process the request for you. During this process, your service with your current provider will be disconnected automatically and Activated with the new provider you have selected. There is no need for you to call your current provider to disconnect your service. During the Request process, you will still be able to place calls on your existing wireless telephone or wire line phone. You, however, will not be able to receive calls during the porting process.
Above information from link below, tracfone.com. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

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 SAFE LINK FREE CELL PHONE. CAN THE PHONE NO OF SAFE LINK CAN BE Transferred TO LG 306 TRACFONE? CAN THE MINUTES OF SAFE LINK CAN BE TRANSFERED ON LG 306 TRACKFONE?


I am thinking this is going to be possible because SafeLink and Tracfone are the same company. you would need to phone the 0800 number to arrange it. The number and minute are stored in the SIM card, so it would just be a matter of swapping the SIM Card and registering it with the new phone.

My Tracfones screen will not turn on. I have taken out the batteries and put them back in, it was fully charged and I have over 600 minutes. Should I reset it, and how do you reset it?


According to the manual they suggest that the Backlight may be set to "OFF". To change this press the Menu key>Settings>Other Settings>Initial Setup>Backlight, and change it to on. If this doesn't work and you suspect that the display is truly burnt out, Go to your nearest mega store and buy a C139 tracfone for $14 and switch out your SIM card. your minutes and service should be be transfered to the new phone
