    Is there any difference to a plan that has 400 minutes tripled vs a plan with 1200 minutes? They are probably removing the convoluted terms and stating the actual values.

    No, zero difference and less confusion for many people .

    At face value, there is no difference.

    But TracFone does not offer a 1200 minute card.

    I can pay $99.99 for 1200 (400 x 3) minutes / 365 days OR $125 for 1500 minutes / 365 days. Plus tax on both.

    There are 8 basic plans versus 5 Smartphone plans.
    If TMFL goes away, hopefully there will be an increase in the number of Smartphone plans.

    Yep. At face value, you pay 25% more ($125 vs $100) and get 25% more in units (1500 vs 1200), but don't get 25% more in service days.

    What's a better deal - the bundled minutes/data/service days cards or the individual data-only, text-only, service days-only options?

    Whichever matches your usage pattern better.

    Preferably, Tracfone ought to bring a minutes-only option. Say, a 1,000 minutes offering with no texts, no data and no service time.

    With the Smart Phone only card you should actually get 1536MB (1.5GB) and I noticed you can get 5% off the Year Smart Phone Card with auto re-fill, but no auto re-fill discount for the PayGo year cards?

    FWIW, AlexTrac posted this on Turk Forums:

    Smartphones will still be able to use Pay As You Go service cards, but this won't triple.

    The old phones that have Triple Minutes promotion will keep having the benefits.
    This applies only to the new Smartphones and Bring Your Own Phone devices.

    That's the most direct statement ever from AlexTrac, and seems correct. Known "smartphone card (plan)" only phones are LG Rebel 2, ZTE ZFive 2, and likely the LG Fiesta on HSN. TracFone better get those smartphone cards on the wider market!

    I wonder what they are going to use to identify a "new Smart phone or BYOP? Also there's TF branded smartphones.

    Can anyone confirm that use of a paygo card on a smartphone is no longer tripling?

    No one has posted such here yet. Don't you think they would have if they were reading this thread?

    Actually, no one has even posted that they bought a phone marked that way.

    This is not a running change for any existing TF branded model, but a clean start with new model introductions from here on out. Easy to identify between the old and the new types.

    BYOP would all get the new rules at time of activation. Not sure how this affects GSM BYOP where you only activate the SIM and don't identify the phone's IMEI. Would they change that?

    It depends on how you read the statement from AlexTrac "This applies only to the new Smartphones and Bring Your Own Phone devices". It could mean it applies to "new Smartphones" and "BYOP devices" (new and old). Looking at the boxes of my TF-branded smartphones, there's a statement that "this phone triples minutes, text, data". I don't remember if there was any advertising that BYOP devices get TMFL.
