    Will Tracfone unlock Tacfone's own iPhone 7 if I use Tracfone's $49 eBay 365-day SIM for a year?

    I ordered the prepaid iPhone 7 from Tracfone's website.

    If I do not touch the SIM card that comes the phone and just use the Tracfone $49 eBay 365-day SIM for a year, will Tracfone unlock it after a year?

    Thanks!

    You have to use the SIM that's officially paired with the phone. But you can likely have the $49 airtime transferred to the official SIM. Not sure.

    I think that they are only allowing the Ebay $49 year SIM card to work on unlocked BYOP. It's my understanding that the SIM card will not work on a Tracfone branded device now. The loophole has been closed. It was meant as an enticement to lure new customers, but ended up being used a lot by existing customers as a cheap way to extend service on their expiring Tracfone accounts.

    No, you can't use a BYOP sim to qualify for unlocking.
