    Reactivate Tracfone

    Do you get any free mins when you reactivate a Tracfone?
    Or do you have to put money into it right off?

    I have inherited a Tracfone from my son. I gave him a spare phone I picked up from Craigslist and activated it for him on Page Plus. (I just got a text from him saying he's "obsessed" with his "new" phone).
    His Tracfone is out of mins and expired.

    As far as I know, there is no way to reactivate a used and unactivated Tracfone without adding an airtime card. When you go into the site to activate, they will not let you proceed with activation without an airtime pin.

    You need an airtime PIN to reactivate. What kind of TracFone is it?
    Castrol EDGE 5W-30 is my drug of choice.

    Primary: iPhone 6 64GB, Galaxy Note 3, Lumia 635: 5 lines, 1x $15 5GB data, 2x $5 Android web, 1x $2.99 T-Zones, corp discount + $10/mo loyalty discount = $93/mo tax inclusive
    Secondary: iPhone 4S & LG Ultimate 2: TracFone (Verizon)
    Tablet: iPad Mini Retina w/ T-Mobile 4G LTE

    I prolly wont take it. I see Dollar General has the C139 on sale this week for $10.
    So let this thread fade into the bowels of history.

    I stopped by Dollar General. On the back of the $10 C139 bubble pack phone it said it came with "10 units of airtime and 60 day service"
    I realize this does or may not apply to reactivating a phone.

    All new or refurbished phones (phones that come from Tracfone to you without activation) come with 60 days of service and 10 units if you activate by calling Tracfone. If you activate via the website, you get 20 units. After a phone has been activated and then deactivated, you need to add airtime to reactivate.
