TracFone LG Optimus Zip Price, Specs and Features now Available


Friday 10th of August 2012 / android.gs
The previously launched LG Optimus Zip, which was first available through Verizon, has just been leaked on the TracFone online store. So, LG is extending the phone’s availability on the market, though we are talking about a device that has nothing to impress at all. It is a low range but budget friendly Android powered handset suitable for the entry level customers with low expectations. Anyway, you have the LG Optimus Zip specs and features along with the price tagged by the TracFone online provider, so for making a proper idea about this smartphone check the same.If you will want to buy it, then you should know that LG and TracFone will provide the Zip in United States, Puerto Rico and Virgin Islands, the offer being the same for all the markets. The device unveils a relatively small display with 3.2 inch along with a slide QWERTY keyboard which can be useful for those who prefer to chat or send messages rather than talk on the phone. Beside this, the smartphone has a plastic made case, the design being not on my taste. It’s small, with a poor look, not to mention that the perf

HTC Hero Flashed for Tracfone Service


Friday 26th of August 2011 / androidforums.com
I currently have a Sprint HTC Hero200 running CyanogenMod07.1.00RC1-Heroc and well what can you say... the CyanogenMod's ROCK... But (yea I know there is always a but) I am not able to afford service with Sprint right now and had to resort to a tracfone for the for seeable future (ok, everyone cry now)....from what I have been able to gather, My Droid is CDMA while the Tracfone is GSM.... BUT....Tracfone does support BOTH CDMA and GSM for Vioce and CDMA2000 for data... So is it possible????You already know my long drawn out question... BUT... here it is anyway... Is it possible to flash my Driod for use on the Tracfone network, then register and use it (even in a limited fashion)?

Removing Tracfone Boot Logo Startup & Shutdown


Sunday 02nd of June 2013 / androidforums.com
Once your phone is rooted, do the following to remove the ugly Tracfone boot and shutdown animations (fairly simple)In /system/media append .old (rename) to the following files: Startupbootsamsung.qmgbootsamsungloop.qmgShutdown / Power OffIn /system/media/video/shutdown append .old (rename) shutdown.qmgShould also mention that placing bootanimation.zip(s) in this folder does nothing. Also...when you first boot the phone the Samsung logo still appears, then goes straight to the main lock screen.And there you have it. No more unsightly Tracfone logos.

TracFone clarifies Straight Talk and Net10 data policy, confirms 2.5GB throttle point


Monday 30th of September 2013 / feedproxy.google.com
A little policy transparency from the most popular MVNOoperatorTracFone, which operates (among others) the Straight Talk and Net10 prepaid carrier brands, has clarified its smart phone data policy to explicitly put a 2.5GB throttle point on its offerings. While both Straight Talk and Net10 have been extremely popular as inexpensive choices in the prepaid phone service arena, their policies on throttling or cutting off user's data connections with little warning were somewhat suspect.According to official statements from TracFone, we now know that both Straight Talk and Net10 will give users of its "unlimited" plans up to 2.5GB of high-speed data access, throttling speeds to 2G (EDGE) after that point. Once your next 30-day renewal begins, you go back to a new 2.5GB data bucket. TracFonespecified that this applies to BYODplans on both carriers with either AT&T or T-Mobile SIMs.Previous statements from TracFone refuted the suggestion that its prepaid brands only offered 1.5GB of data per month, and while this confirms that those statements were true it may not be the

Tracfone Android Phones


Saturday 23rd of November 2013 / forums.androidcentral.com
Tracfone the pay-as-you-go cell phone company now gives us pay-as-you-go Android phones with it's introduction of the Samsung Galaxy Centura and the ZTE Valet a few months ago. You can check YouTube for a comparison of the pros and cons of these two phones. I am pleased with my purchase of the ZTE Valet which runs Android 4.1.1. The Samsung Galaxy Centura runs Android 4.0. I am wondering whether Tracfone will be putting out system updates for these phones. My guess is that these phones won't be updated at all. As I look through the forums here, it seems that system updates come from the cell phone carriers like Sprint, Verizon, etc. If Tracfone followed suit, it probably wouldn't have lead off with the Valet running Android Jellybean while the Galaxy Centura runs only Android Ice Cream Sandwich. Does anyone have any ideas or information? Sent from my Nexus 7 using AC Forums mobile app

Samsung Galaxy Express with Tracfone


Monday 09th of December 2013 / androidforums.com
I have just bought an unlocked galaxy express and was hoping to use it via Tracfone, using there PAYG datacards and transferring my existing number. I cannot get a clear answer from Tracfone, one operator tells me its ok, he'll send a sim and he can transfer the number across, the next guy tells me probably not, he would have to look at the serial number of the phone and thinks I would have to go on NET10.The data cards from tracfone state 'android powered' phones only, hence I assumed it wold be ok (as I was first told before buying the phone)he phone doesn't arrive until next week, anyone out there have the real answer?Al
