    Tracfone App

    I just checked Google play and noticed there is a Tracfone account app. Maybe we finally have an easier way to check our airtime?

    I was surprised to find the app with no downloads, you don't have to enter any information. I guess it uses the phone number on your device.

    Thanks for posting this. I just tried and It does work. It seemed stuck the first time I tried, but worked the second time I tried.

    I was excited to see that they finally released a way to check your airtime on the phone without a computer. I used it on my ZTE Valet, too bad it uses internet though.

    I assume it uses Wifi instead of using up your data if that's turned on.

    Nice app, but it has one annoying flaw. Because it's just a wrapper around an HTTP GET, it causes a text to be sent to your phone in addition to the data it displays on its own. While this doesn't use up your text limit, it's redundant and requires one waste time deleting said text message.

    The text message allows you to keep a record of how much you used so it could be helpful to some people.

    That's true of the web site too. I wouldn't expect them to open an alternate path into the database. Especially not this quick.

    It looks like a quick hack, using the ST app as a basic wrapper, pointing to a different server (I think, may be he same server) with a few images changed to theme it to TF.

    Looking at the source from the website, https://www.tracfone.com/direct/CheckBalance
    The final GET is:
    https://www.tracfone.com/direct/Chec...lection=submit

    I don't have an android, so I can't verify it works fully, but it does work form the 3 phone I have same as if I entered the info directly.

    I find the text useful. It's an easy way to log how many minutes/texts/MBs I am using. Plus the texts are still free, right?

    Seems like most of us agree that the texts are useful and, yes, they are still free.

    It's easy enough to dismiss them, then periodically delete them as a group since they all come from one number/sender.
    Cheers!

    I can't get this app to work on my Android centura. All I get is "Oops server error please try again." when I click on "balance". The "me" & "add card" work fine. Seen reports of this error from other folks also.

    Doesn't work for me either, just says loading and nothing happens. I bet their servers are overloaded from everyone d/ling this app.

    eedit: took a few mins but then i got a text with my balance

    I had that problem when first installing the app, then it started working a day or two later. It usually is slow doing it though.
