    Tracfone Locked Phone Text

    I got the following text today on two of my Tracfone branded phones:

    TracFone Msg: You may be eligible for a refund/upgrade credit for your locked phone.
    Visit www.tfwunlockpolicy.com to check

    The odd thing is, they arrived on my already "unlocked" phones.

    Which phones are those? How long ago did you get TF to unlock them?

    Apparently TF doesn't keep good record of which phones they already unlocked.

    May just be a marketing strategy to get you to buy a new phone.

    Sent from my moto e5 play using HoFo mobile app

    Though they know that they are eligible to be unlocked.
