No plan required. You can activate with a tracfone $15 plan so that it can be unlocked for free after 60 days. No need to renew after the first month. May need to call them to rebrand the phone to tracfone if you want to activate on tracfone. If you already have a tracfone, ST, total service you can activate with that service for free.

Free shipping or free store pickup.

Also available directly from ST website. Skip adding a plan if you don't want one. Thanks to mitchflorida.

After unlock - will it work on other networks, ATT et al ?
Saw some1 mention it has full complement of supported frequencies ?
This particular variant of A54 is not good for AT&T. it was designed specifically for Verizon and omits key Att bands.

Earlier message (right in this thread) sez: ".... the reason this deal seemingly a great deal is also because it can be unlocked with minor work.... so u have a fully unlocked phone to use on any carrier. ...".

It will work on AT&T but it won't be optimum, it's missing some important freqencies.

Quote from oregon14 :
Nothing new, their system is often glitchy - been weird today too. I unlocked one ST phone last month (on TF) and have done several in past year, works fine.

I bought Pixel 6a from TBV several days ago. Activated through TF with their $15 ($10 with auto refill). Got the unlocked date from texting to 611611.
Can I use that existing plan above to activate this phone if I decide to buy ( or any other ST, TBV similar phone deals ) without affecting my Pixel 6a unlocking process? Thank you.

As long as you use the sim card that comes with the phone and don't switch it, going through customer service.

The IMEI checker indicates it's not compatible with AT&T so I wouldn't count on it working.

It only checks out to work with Verizon or T-Mobile but it may work on visible as well

Can I use one of the 1yr TF plans from HSN on this phone for the 60 day unlock? Or does it have to be a monthly plan?

I BOUGHT ONE AND A $20 TRACFONE CARD. I called Tracfone customer service. Asked them if I could use a straight talk phone with tracfone, they said yes, and I gave then my numbers from phone and card and got a new phone number.. Took about 5 minutes.. I texted 611611 the word "unlock" and it gave me a 60 day unlock date and a phone number to call.. Super easy..

That works too. It doesn't have to monthly plan.

Edit: quote system garbled my post...

You tried any other sims in it? Some boost mobile sims are on T-Mobile towers, so you might get lucky with their $12.50 deal

Yes, I do it all the time (I have a collection of old cheapie TF in a drawer).

Activate as a locked TF, choose keep current number & balance/number moves to new phone. Uses current service to qualify for unlocking.

I finally got my phone.

Sadly, I am unable to activate it on the Tracfone website or the Android app.
Get an error message that says the device is not in their database.

Here is the scary part:
There is an app, called Device Pulse, on the phone that pops up occasionally, it says to click on it to activate the phone. The app has the Straight Talk logo, it can't be disabled or uninstalled.

Bad luck for us existing Tracfone BYODers!

I've activated several Straight Talk phones on Tracfone without any problems.
Try activating as a new locked TF - this isn't BYOD, it's still a locked Tracfone brand.
If you can't do it online through the TF website call support & ask them to rebrand it to TF, it shouldn't be a problem (all TF brands use same sim, there's even a small TF on it).
Note - there also might be an issue with WM not scanning device correctly & that's why it isn't recognized - lots of complaints in the Pixel 6a thread.

Yes I have tried activating it several times, each time as a locked TF phone.

I bought the phone from StraightTalk.com.
So this would mean that the ST people are just as bad as the Walmart people when it comes to scanning the boxes going out the door!
