the least expensive way to own a cell phone in America

TracFone Wireless, Inc., the nation's largest pre-paid cell phone provider, offers customers "the least expensive way to own a cell phone in America" with its "low cost to get, low cost to keep" cell phone service. In addition to brand name phones starting at under $10, TracFone offers phone service for as little as $20 every three months, with additional airtime minutes available for as little as 10 cents per minute.

Additional features that make TracFone "the least expensive way to own a cell phone in America" include:

  •     No contracts - ever
  •     Unlimited carry-over benefit - the ability to keep your previous minutes and days with active your service
  •     International calling to over 60 destinations for the same cost as a local call
  •     Nationwide long distance calling at the same cost as local, with no roaming charges
  •     The only phones to display remaining minutes and days right on the phone, letting you stay in control
  •     Text messaging at the rate of three per airtime minute, a fraction of the cost of text messages provided by major contract carriers.

TracFone also offers customers four convenient ways to purchase airtime:

  •     At thousands of stores nationwide
  •     Online on the Web
  •     Via automatic monthly renewal with a registered checking account or credit card
  •     Via instant purchase from the user's own phone

With its new, full-featured phones for under $10, TracFone is dispelling the myth that pre-paid phones are "disposable." The company's new less than $10 phones are the full-featured Motorola W175 and the Kiocera K126. TracFone also offers color flip-phones starting as low as $15.

TracFone pre-paid cellular phones are available at nearly 70,000 retail stores nationwide, including WalMart, Target, K-Mart, Family Dollar, Dollar General, Circuit City, Sears, CVS, Walgreens and many other major retailers.

In a recent study by J.D. Power and Associates, TracFone received the coveted five-out- of-five Power Circle Rating for call quality, the highest out of all other prepaid wireless providers in the U.S. TracFone's 10 million customers benefit from a vast national coverage area boasting the same quality of reception as the major contract cellular carriers.

TracFone Wireless' new lower-priced entry level phones are perfect for:

  •     Parents who want an inexpensive, reliable phone for their young child or teenager

  •     Recent college graduates just starting in the workforce
