When I selected (a CDMA Tracfone) a message came up that the phone would not work in my area... This is Metro NY and there is full Verizon coverage here. What does this mean?
In addition to the previous advice, Tracfone may not have any local numbers available for Verizon in your area. The Target and WalMart websites might not be useful to you ; use the Tracfone website, for example. My local Target has CDMA Tracfones.
