@Bloke, br br OK, understand. br br This is the ... (
Thanks, I've made a note of the link. Sounds like a similar deal to the one I got, although maybe this one 'only' had 1200 minutes, etc. It's my third tracfone, and costing me about $7 per month.
I did have issues with them over the last one... It stopped working, and after *hours* on hold and talking to tech support, they decided I needed a new sim card. The rep asked me if I wanted the same number, and I said yes, as I have it on business cards and suchlike. When the new card eventually came, turned out that he had issued a new number... To get the old one back, I needed *another* new sim card, and they could not guarantee that it would be available when the time came for me to activate it. Well, it was, *but* there was no record of my minutes, texts or data available, and they said that I would have to purchase more. Having had it for about 6 months, and used *maybe* 100 minutes, about 5 texts and no data, I escalated the call. Eventually managed to speak to a supervisor, who refused to restore my minutes based on the fact that I had not purchased any minutes since buying the phone. She seemed unable to comprehend that, with a phone which comes with 1350 minutes, I *never* expect to have to buy any minutes. She claimed that there was no way she could access any records which showed how many minutes etc., I had used. The only escalation level left was for some other department to call me back once the matter reached them... Needless to say, nobody ever called...
My first inclination was to tell them where to stuff their phone, but research showed that there was no service available at even a comparable price. So, I could pay considerably more, just to "show them", or else bite my tongue and carry on.
Other than that little escapade, I have had no issues with their service, and you can't beat the price!
