    Actually it's a TF 60-minute $19.99 card.

    Misread your post. Missed that you said 60 min card, just saw the price.

    Also, the Verizon SIMs are the same and can be used on both (as well as ST and TW)
    For some reason I'm forgetting,,,but will the Vzw SIMs in a TF BYOD kit also work with Page Plus?

    I don't know if that ever changed or not.
    PPC used different SIMs last I remember.

    I don't follow PPC much.

    So since I'm only paying about $6.67 a month (buying $20 card every 3 mos) my best bet is to hold onto my phone until it completely falls apart? I only have a Tracfone for calls out side of the home and use Google Voice VOIP at home for free. The new dynamic at Tracfone is definitely a price increase for me once my current option is gone.

    Nope, you can upgrade to a new phone that still allows you to use the same basic refill card - you just have to be careful and stay away from the smartphone-plan only newer phones. What phone do you currently have? Are there any new models that interest you? Check out HSN.COM TracFone bundles and ask here before you buy anything .

    Is that due to needing​ minutes or needing​ days?

    I have an LG Premier that is still in good shape. But Android phones tend to have short life spans with being stuck on a non-upgrade-able OS.

    At home I use the phone with Google Voice VOIP for calls. I only ever use minutes when away from the house. So I basically just buy a card to keep it alive.

    Cheap way to keep it alive if you don't need buckets refilled is to buy a $5 text-only refill on Tracfone.com and add the $50 365 day service upgrade. For $55 + taxes etc you're good for another year.

    If your 5.3" LG Premier with Lollipop is working perfectly fine for your needs, you can stick with it unless you want to upgrade to a new phone for some reason.

    As tfusr said, buy a 1yr addon then. Don't continue buying minutes you don't need.

    To get the 365 day service time add-on you have to first choose an airtime card. Text or data cards will not do this. You can then remove the airtime card to (hopefully) just buy the service time.

    Yes, thanks for correcting that.

    I can't keep up with these constant changes .

    So worst case buy the cheapest airtime card the website will let you buy (basic or smartphone) if you don't need buckets refilled, then add the $50 1-year days only before checkout.
