    Smartphone Card

    .

    a while back I purchased a 3GB card with 1200 buckets and 365 Day Plan on Ebay for $39 .... and did not pay attention to:

    "PLAN CAN ONLY ACTIVATE WITH PRODUCT
    PURCHASED OR IT WILL BECOME VOID"

    and since I bought the card alone on ebay from a TF seller... I don't understand what the above NOTE means/implies!


    *** I couldn't load a pic because "MANAGE ATTACHMENTS" did not work for me...

    It means you have to activate the SIM (the product purchased) in order to get the airtime. Then you will have an active BYOD SIM to use in a phone. It's meant to draw in new customers with a one-step set-up.

    But you can usually then transfer the airtime to a SIM you already have. That's the procedure of choice for a lot of people who are working around the lack of an actual airtime card.

    Tracfone making it harder to get deals but not impossible.

    Did you get a scratch off plan card, or only a SIM card?

    I got a scratch off plan card, and no SIM card?
    Does that mean, I can add it to any active phone I have?
    I guess I will have to try to find out....

    Thanks

    For a short time, Tracfone gave us the option of buying only the airtime plan card.
