    tracfone not working.
    « on: December 06, 2018, 10:12:52 PM »
    What to do when trac fone dials and don't work. In coming calls don't work and I have 109 minutes left and it's all charged up. I ring my own land phone and it won't even ring in there. It just shows a red phone and it says dialing.

    You take it bank to the vendor.
    Unless you are experienced, never buy a cheap phone online. Your best way to get a good deal is to go into a real store and find people who will help you.
    The major companies have real stores in most places in north America.

    In the USA you can get Trac fones at Walmart.
    Link below directs you to local stores in your area:

    Also, Target stores can help you with a new cell phone purchase.

    Tip: I avoid using Google to search for retail products. Instead I use this serch engine site:  https://duckduckgo.com/

    I hope thatis some help.  :)

      I would contact Tracphone and have them assist you.

      I have a tracphone and the last time mine acted like yours they had me go through a process to download a newer update for my phone by typing in a * code combination with # to complete. Then phone rebooted and all was good to go.

      They had me do something similar to this but each carrier has different codes. https://itstillworks.com/update-cell-phone-local-towers-4646.html
