QVC is selling Samsung Galaxy A53 5G bundled with 1 year of Tracfone Unlimited service (Unlimited Talk, Unlimited Text, and 24 GB for entire year) for $150.
https://www.qvc.com/Tracfone-65%2...19400.html

S53 5G is a solid mid-range phone, with lots of desired features. Super AMOLED, 120Hz, 800 nits display; Corning Gorilla Glass 5; 6GB RAM, 128GB memory, and microSDXC; 4 years of Android Update.

Phone unlocks 60 days after activation, and then can be used on other carriers if they whitelisted model SM-S536DL.

The price can be dropped another $30 for new QVC customers by using coupon NEWQVC30. Even at $150, this is a good deal for anyone who need unlimited T&T and 24 GB data for the year. Tracfone 1 year Unlimited Service is automatically added once the A53 is activated.

About Samsung A53 model SM-S536DL
This phone is a solid mid-ranger, more than sufficient for every day use and gaming.

Android 12 + 4 years updates
2.4GHz, 2.0GHz Exynos 1280 octa-core processor
6.5" Super AMOLED, 120Hz, 800 nits, 1080 x 2400 pixels, 20:9 ratio (~405 ppi density)
6GB RAM, 128GB memory
802.11 a/b/g/n/ac dual-band Wi-Fi
Bluetooth 5.0 wireless technology
Quadruple-lens camera system: 64-megapixel main lens; 12-megapixel ultra-wide lens; 5-megapixel macro lens; 5-megapixel depth lens
32-megapixel front camera
microSD memory card slot
5,000mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery

Model SM-S536DL, once unlocked, can be used on other carriers if they have whitelisted this model. AT&T have not, so it won't work on AT&T or its MVNOs.

This model is very locked down, so you cannot root, bootloader unlock, or use ODIN to replace the ROM. You can use ADB to uninstall any bloat apps.

About 1 Year Tracfone Service (Unlimited Talk, Unlimited Text, & 24 GB Data)
* 365 days of Tracfone Service running off Verizon's network
* Unlimited Talk
* Unlimited Text
* 24 GB data for entire year. If you use up all 24 GB data early, you will still have service for the remaining time, just no data until you buy more data from Tracfone

Service is preloaded to the SIM (usually preinstalled in the phone). Activate the SIM / IMEI on Tracfone.com to activate the phone and service. Once the phone is activated (by activating the SIM / IMEI), the 60 day unlock counter starts.

Other Tracfone family phones can be activated on the plan for service and unlocking as well.

Howard Forums has the most Tracfone experts, and they recommend taking screenshots of your balance regularly. I have not had any problems with my family's Tracfone lines, but unfortunately if you draw the short straw, Tracfone is not known for their great CSRs.
just know that TracFone routinely zeroes out your balance.
Since the plan came with the phone, you will have a very hard time getting your plan back. They always want to see when you last BOUGHT the plan.
Tracfone nuked one of my lines doing a transfer. Subsequent calls resulted in another line getting wiped out - probably 7 calls in all with a wide range of awful behavior by the CSRs. I filed an informal complaint with the fcc with screenshots of balance and time/date of each call + timeline of all the shenanigans. After a few weeks and a couple emails, a Tracfone rep that deals with fcc complaints calls and the problems are all fixed in about 10 minutes.

Why didn't they just fix it in the first place? You're correct they just don't care about fixing the problem once it falls outside whatever script they have. Any sort of common sense/logic falls on deaf ears. Their goal isn't to help you at this point, but make you give up through whatever means possible. The best recourse IS an informal FCC complaint which is very much free and was extremely effective for me.

Tracfone CSR is so horrible it should be criminal.
