    Tracfone *228 on Verizon

    Oh about 7 yrs ago, I had a tracfone to play with and I remember that if I called *228 and at the same time someone called me, I was able to talk and not get charged any minutes. Does anyone know if that still works?

    If your TracFone is activated on Verizon, a call to *228 (selecting option 2) will update the roaming capabilities of the phone.

    It does not provide free service.

    Seven years ago TracFone had analog phones and calling *228 did nothing because AMPS phones have no PRL.
    Castrol EDGE 5W-30 is my drug of choice.

    Primary: iPhone 5S, Galaxy S4, & 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 4 & Optimus Dynamic II: TracFone (Verizon); Galaxy Epic: RingPlus (Sprint)
    Tablet: iPad Mini Retina w/ T-Mobile 4G LTE

    It doesn't work anymore. When you are in *228 call, the other party goes directly to voice mail. I guess they finally made a change in their system. Like I said a very long time ago, with Tracfone on Verizon, when you dial *228, and someone calls your cell, the calls goes through and you can answer it. This way you could have talked all day long for free. I have tried it myself once or twice and it did work. Only thing is the other person has about 50 seconds to make the call while you are in the *228 call.

    Well this is old history now anyways,
    Good day,
    Andy.
