    Will Tracfone prices rise with a 20% tariff on Mexican imports?

    This is a concern also for the safelink phones.

    Will Pres stop using slim as his provider?

    How much price reflection will we see from this?

    My guess is none. But only time will tell.

    The alarm clock is to know when to wake up to go to work. You know that place you go to to make money for performing a job?

    Those Obama phones are expensive for those who work for a living

    I suppose certain people don't know that the phone can also be an alarm clock.

    What exactly is Slim importing? Air time? Not a physical good. The services TF sells in the US are US based services paid for with US TF users dollars. A big boy like Slim has most likely plenty of expertise available in dealing with hedging currency fluctuations when repatriating his US dollars to pesos. Slim sleeps well at night regardless.

    Tracfone is based outta Florida . . . . You're using towers in the US.....

    Why would any of Trump's crap affect prices on Tracfone?

    Just because SLIM lives in Mexico???

    No, phones are made in China where the big trade problem is. The Mexico thing is just a power game tactic. We do have quite a trade deficit with them though (60 B)...not to mention quite a few million unskilled people being dumped on us.

    You can get an AMEN from me. When I researched the Lifeline program recently there was an audit mentioned that said that ~40% of Lifeline subscribers could not be verified to be eligible.
