Here are some popular phones;
Android: HTC Incredible I, II, Motorola Droid X, X2, Motorola Droid 1, 2, 3, Samsung Fascinate
Windows Phone: HTC Trophy
Cost $9.99 + tax for an "network access code" and adding an airtime card was required before it could be activated. I received 3X minutes on the card (3X minutes / 3X text messages / 3X MB of data). To check usage there is an android app or go to your account on Tracfone's website. Additional data at 300 MB for $10, 750 MB for $20, 2 GB for $50.
I activated a HTC Trophy. If you don't mind using a 7.x Windows phone the Trophy also has a GSM sim card slot. I purchased an unlock code for a few dollars and put in a Lycamobile Sim so I can switch between the two accounts. I did need to upgrade to 7.8 http://windowsphonehac
If you are looking for an android phone the Samsung Fascinate has a CM 11 build
My suggestion is to wait deal like HSN had (1400 minutes/1year expire for $60) and then transfer the minute/service over to the smartphone.
One disadvantage with the smartphones on Tracfone is you cannot roam (voice or data) so you are limited to Verizon's prepaid coverage (see Pageplus coverage map at https://www.pagepluscel
