    how to tell if tracfone is AT&T or verizon?

    How do i tell which network my old tracfone smartphone (not BYOP) used?

    i understand that AT&T (GSM) sims need to be replaced once used but verizon ( CDMA) do not.

    Can i tell the difference by the imei/ sim number?

    is this correct?:
    settings
    > about phone
    -> status
    if both MEID and IMEI numbers - then CDMA (verizon)
    if NO MEID number - then GSM (AT&T)

    There are several ways to tell which network your Tracfone uses.
    * Look at the SIM number. The first six numbers of the SIM ID determine the carrier: 890126 = T-Mobile, 890141 = AT&T, 891480 = Verizon.
    * Use the phone model number. Model numbers ending with "C" or "VL" use Verizon. Numbers ending with "G" or "AL" use AT&T. Numbers ending with "BL" could be AT&T or T-mobile.
    * Send a text message from your phone to your email address. Look at the sending address of the email. The carrier name is in it.
