    Question Swapping Sim Cards in a Tracfone question?

    If you have one Tracfone with a Sim card and you just put that same Sim into a new tracfone will the new phone still have the same number and minutes on it?

    No. The SIM is locked to the specific TracFone it comes with.

    I keep thinking that we should get a sticky posted for these SIM related questions. They are good questions for those who are new to the forum and aren't accustomed to searching the forum, but a sticky could make it easier for everybody.

    It is a good idea. I suppose one has to contact the forum moderator but I'm not sure how that is done.

    But yet on my regular Cingular phone with a Sim I can swap cards into any phone and all the information will transfer over to the new phone and it works perfect.

    I would think tracfone would be the same?

    The number & minutes are not stored on the sim?

    Also I'm talking about putting the sim from one Tracfone branded phone into another Tracfone branded phone (just different model)?
