The activation process

Once you’ve chosen a new device from our selection of cell phones, you can use our online activation system. The Customer Care Center is always available for help at 800-867-7183, as is our tech support center, if you have any questions. Here’s how to activate your new phone and get it up and running.

  1. Select “Activate”
  2. Select “I have a Tracfone phone”
  3. Enter the phone’s IMEI/MEID/Serial Number (located on the red activation card that came with the phone)
  4. Review and accept Tracfone’s Terms & Conditions

Continue answering the prompts based on your needs. You can also transfer your phone number and any remaining minutes to your new phone at this time, as well. However, if you are switching from a smartphone to a basic phone, you will not be able to transfer any remaining minutes.

Using your new phone

Depending on which Tracfone service plan you choose, you’ll have minutes, text, and data to browse the web and connect with friends and family from your new device. Don’t forget to explore all the exciting new features that your phone comes with and personalize the settings. If you upgraded to a smartphone, visit the App Store or Google Play to download the apps* you love and even some new ones.
