Tracfone iphone5s

newz54 50 17 August 16, 2016 at 12:00 PM
Target is selling an iPhone 5s for tracfone ($199) that I am considering. Does anyone know is this a BYOP or is this a regular tracfone that give you triple minutes? They are selling a 200 minute card along with it but I thought you needed to buy a smartcard pay as you go card for data and text. Is there data and text with the regular 200 minute plan?

Ringplus wants over 400 dollars for a used iPhone 5s. Target is new.

TracFone doesn't have the best track record for unlocking phones.

The 5s was discontinued this april, but it was first introduced 2.5 years ago. I'd much rather have something like a Nexus 5x. Though I will say Apple supports their devices longer than most Android MFGs.


You can get used phones on swappa for reasonable prices, but the batteries on refurb/used phones always take a beating.

Why do conservative politicians oppose conservation?
Have you ever stopped to think the long-term GOP immigration policy might be to make the United States of America a less desirable place to live than Mexico?
