    Question TracFone 365 plan

    Okay maybe a dumb question but I don't get it..
    The $125 365 day plan says 1500 minutes, 1500 txt, & 1.5 gigs of data.
    Is this 1500/1500/1.5 monthly or for the whole year?
    I'm thinking they left out the critical info (or didn't be specific), I'll call it bait and switch express plan.

    Are you new to Tracfone? Nothing bait-and-switch about it. That $125 gets you 365 days of service, and 1500 minutes, 1500 texts, 1.5GB of data, exactly like it's advertised. You have 365 days to use those units. If there are any units left after 365 days and you buy more days with a new plan, those units are carried forward. If you use up any of those buckets (like your texts, for example), then you'll need to buy more texts, else you won't be able to send/receive texts. Same with the talk bucket, and the data bucket.

    Well thank you for the clarification. Maybe they should include your post in their description. Some folks have never seen a plan that doesn't renew monthly.
    I have a family member on Red Pocket plan ending in a few days. $99 dollars a year for 500 minutes, 500 txt & 500mb of data. It renews every month.
    I looking for a plan with more talk time. Thanks again

    You have a lot of good things to learn about this game called Tracfone (and some bad things). MANY ways to save Money, with the fun parts becoming addictive.

    TracFone is not at all competitive with talk time of 500+ minutes per month. The next tier up with Red Pocket is $169 for a year's worth of 1000 minute months. That's a really cheap 1.4 cents a minute. About the best you can do with TracFone is 4.6 cents a minute, and that does not include much service time.
