TracFone service at long last !!

After entering seven “code” numbers, my TracFone was finally activated!! It was 11:18 AM–exactly six weeks after I first attempted to activate a new phone (with old number).


STEPS 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8


You are about to program your TRACFONE.

After following the steps below, and your TRACFONE display indicates “CODE ACCEPTED”you MUST click the “Code Accepted” button on the computer screen below for your phone to be properly programmed.

      If your phone turned OFF and back ON, start from Step 1. Otherwise, please start from Step 3:

      1. Press the OK key.
      2. Using your navigation keys, go to “Code Entry Mode” then press the OK key.
      3. Your screen should now display “Code.” Please enter the following numbers:

Comment: I received an LG 236C cell phone. They are selling for $19.99–or less. Rhetorical question: In the interest of “good will” for a longtime customer, why didn’t they send that phone five weeks ago??


Postscript, several days later: In my humble opinion, the height of ignorance; I missed the call and it went to voice mail. Heather phoned to ask if I received the phone. The fact that I did not have service apparently did not register with alledged “customer service.” Remember, no reception with the old phone. If I had not received–and activated–the new phone, I wouldn’t know she called. Obviously it never occurred to her to call my land-line contact number or send an email message.
