You are probably asking what the heck is this Tracfone thing? This is just another one of my personal experiences that I felt was worth sharing with our MyMac reader audience. The phones are expensive, especially an iPhone, and so are the monthly fees associated with the various service providers.
You are welcomed to read this article in our MyMac archives. Last month Apple released the new and smaller iPhone SE and I elected to purchase the unlocked 64 gigabyte model to replace my still functioning but somewhat dated iPhone 4S.
Since I have been enjoying the non-contract freedom the TracFone system offers I naturally needed to move my new phone into their system, but this time using 4G LTE.
The new iPhones use the nano SIM cards. It looked confusing so I decided to visit the TracFone website and try to go through a trial of the activation procedures to get an idea of what I was in for. I was even less confident I could get it right on the first pass.
So before proceeding any further, I elected to visit the web again and see if there were any good examples of how to do this transition.
I backed up my iPhone 4S to the iCloud. During the new phone initialization process I restored using my iPhone 4S backup from the iCloud. Once the new phone was restored, I realized I still had my Verizon 3G active on this old phone but it was no longer functional.
I then selected the Register and Activate button. Since my new phone was not currently active I selected NO. I then proceeded to activate my new phone by selecting Transfer my current TracFone phone number. Before panicking, I noticed I had the option to sign in to my TracFone account to complete the transfer, and after doing that, I was able to select my old phone directly and complete the transfer.
After I completed the online steps, I had to shut down both my old phone and the new phone and then restart the new phone. I then did a check of my TracFone account using the TracFone My Account App, and verified all my available minutes, text and data had successfully transferred to my new phone.
Finally I went through the normal deactivation of my old iPhone 4S by doing a full reset. In conclusion, with the help of the excellent Youtube video and then simply following the activation package and online TracFone procedures, I was able to get my new iPhone SE up and running in less than an hour.
I have been using the TracFone system since late fall of and have found it to be very dependable and a huge cost saving for my cellular phone service needs. I look forward to using my new iPhone SE at the same savings. For myself, it works just fine and if you are interested, I recommend you give it a try.
The cost is very affordable. I really like that my unused minutes, text, and data, do not expire at the end of each month. I give this a MyMac.Dec 19, · My experience with an iPhone 4S fire/short circuit.
