    HSN Has Android-powered Galaxy Centura Listed for Tracfone

    Saw this on HSN.com.

    http://www.hsn.com/products/samsung-...e-play/7260446

    Someone pinch me, is this actually an Android-powered Tracfone? For real?

    Looks like its true. On the bottom it talks about how the cards will translate into how the data and text and mins and so on and it says there will be 3 android only tracfone cards available too.

    I think it's perfect to pair with Verizon service since no one will use it for excessive amounts of data. The reliability will be there for voice and SMS, and small/moderate amounts of data.

    TracFone Triple Your Minutes/Texts/Data for Life
    •Android handsets will be compatible with all current airtime cards, but will have unique Triple minute conversion
    •You do not need to enter any codes to receive this benefit at the time of replenishment
    •For example:
    - 60-minute card automatically triples to 180 minutes, 180 texts and 180MB of data
    - 120-minute card automatically triples to 360 minutes, 360 texts and 360MB of data
    •Three Android-only data cards will be available
    •Data can be added as needed
    •Data will carry over and stack, but there are no service days

    I think they mean x minutes OR x texts OR x MB of data, not all of the above. Very interesting though that you can use your existing minutes toward data, albeit at higher rates - 1 unit per MB. This sounds pretty good, at least for me since I have a ton of minutes on my TracFones. I want to order one right now but if it'll be on special this weekend I'll have to wait. And find someone to lend me their info so I can use the $20 off new customer coupon. I hardly ever use my TracFone to begin with but I'm a little fascinated at how far TracFone has come. Yes, this is a really basic phone but it's on Verizon and data is actually affordable.
    Castrol EDGE 5W-30 is my drug of choice.

    Primary: iPhone 6 64GB, Lumia 635, & LG L90: 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 & Optimus Dynamic II: TracFone (Verizon); LG Mach: RingPlus (Sprint)
    Tablet: iPad Mini Retina w/ T-Mobile 4G LTE

    So you are paying $30 extra dollars for a $25 gift card, car charger and case? I don't trust their 'Retail Value,' they just make those up.

    Don't forget the 200 minute card, which sells for $40.
    $40 card + $25 gift card for apps and the phone.
    And if it's going to be on special tomorrow, it'll probably be $20-30 less.

    I think they mean x minutes OR x texts OR x MB of data, not all of the above.

    If so, 1MB for 1 unit is a good deal compared to the current TF 3G devices (~15 units per MB).

    The SMS rate sucks though, >3 times the current rate. Of course I'd use email and MMS more at the lower data rate.

    Now, if you get voice, and text and data as HSN says, it's not as bad.

    • Promotion includes: 600 minutes, 600 text, 600MB of data + 90 days of service
    • Minutes carried over from an existing Tracfone will translate into minutes, text messages and MB of data on your TracFone Android smartphone

    Not that I trust half of what HSN says.

    If they are planning on having it less tomorrow that would be a really good deal. New customers can get $20 (not sure if that would apply for specials). I'm in to get one if it comes out $100 or less.

    Wonder if I can get my safelink service on this phone. Being it is cdma and my safelink is at&t, it might be a hassle. But I use google voice so a new number really won't matter.

    No changes have been made to the Value plans to accomidate the Data cards.


    Data Card for web browsing for Android™ powered phones only*

    * This card will only add data usage if the phone has service days remaining. This card does not add service days, minutes or text messages, and can only be used for Activations or Reactivations if combined with an Airtime card.

    I have looked through the tutorials, and the user guide, and no where is their any mention of a minute and days count. It never appears on the screen and it just isn`t mentioned. There is no mention of how to add airtime anywhere.
