My new Tracfone

Yep! We finally broke down and upgraded our cell phones. We've used Tracfones for a number of years now and have had the same phone. For us, they're perfect. We have the convenience of having a mobile phone, with out the big expense. Our old one is first.

And here's our pretty new one! The antenna on my old one was ready to break off. And they had a good deal on an upgrade. $29.99 for a new phone, and double minutes for the life of the phone. We don't have a contract with Tracfone. You buy the phone, and purchase minutes. We always buy a one year card for $99 and it comes with 450 minutes. So we only have to load minutes once a year, though you could add more during the year if needed, but we seldom use our phones, and the minutes roll over. I now have 1722 minutes. I don't know why I thought I needed double minutes, but I did need a new phone, and who knows? Maybe I'll start using it more.

    We got the same phone and the same deal for Pat!
    It's a good deal for him because he has more minutes than time. He's good until January right now. :)

    Yelp, I have the same phone as well, from tracphone. The biggest headache with it for me is dialing Canada. you can not dial straight thru, you have to enter another 8 digit number first, then the canadian number...a real pain, and not programmable. But at least the deal is cheap, since I do not use it that much.
