    HSN 1500 Minutes?

    Can the minutes be added to another tracfone or do they have to be used with the samsung sg390? I have a cdma phone that doubles minutes I would like to use because the att coverage only works when I am in town and not at my house. If this is not possible I will just send it back.

    My limited experience (2 LG500Gs with 1500 minutes and TMFL) is that you can add them to any phone.
    I added the airtime and TMFL to existing LG500Gs not the ones I got form HSN.

    The site/number only asked for order number, shipping zip (from order), and phone number. The did not track by ESN/IMIE.

    You can add the minutes to a double minute phone.
    You will end up with 1100 minutes instead of 1500 because your phone does not triple minutes.

    Oh year, I forgot about that.

    That code from HSN is the same as a 1yr/400 min card + a 300 minute promo code.


    My LG500G code included the equivalent of a triple minute card.

    Thanks for the info. Even with 1100 minutes still an ok deal? What do you think?

    1 year/400 min card is $100 direct from Tracfone. Currently (and normally) they have a bonus code for 200 min.

    So that would be 1000min and 1 year for $100 plus taxes.

    The HSN deal gives you 100 minutes more, plus the accessories (which may or may not be of use to you).
    The micro-USB car charger, the micro-USB wall charger (in the phone package), and the wired headset.
    (The case is of no use as it's a custom fit to the S390G, and I doubt the battery would be of use).
    Little or no taxes either.


    It's a much better deal with triple minutes and if you will use the phone.

    For me I considered it a tax free card with the 100 extra minutes.
    The new phone was just a bonus, and if I don't like it better than the old one, I can go back.


    If I were you, I'd use the airtime and sell the phone+accessories, preferably unopened, for $20-40.
    That would be a good deal for the purchaser for a TMFL phone w/ case and car charger.

    Thanks for the help. Added tne minutes to my cdma phone with no problem. Not sure what I will do with the s390g, maybe just keep it for the wifi and mp3 player.

    smitty60, did it give you 1100 minutes or 1500? And did it change your CDMA phone to Triple Minutes?
