How to check Tracfone balance?

135 31 May 7, 2016 at 07:48 PM
I have used Tracfone for over 15 years and never had a problem checking my balance until I got an Android. I have tried their website and the phone as well as various links on the web and all it will show is my service end date. Apparently others are having the problem as I Googled it and checked out You Tube. Anyone know how to find out their minutes and text balance on an Android?

There's a TracFone App but it doesn't always work. What model phone / network?

Dial *777*1#
or check http://www.fastactportal.com/static/balance

*777*1# is for GSM phones.

Do you have the TF app installed? My account / fastact websites function sporadically, try again in a few days. Is this a tracfone phone or byop?

Try texting the word BALANCE or USAGE to 611611

for those that hate spelling mistakes www.walmarts.comCool

bulb save money by checking your insurance every 2 years (and not every 20) Thanks Liberty Mutual for reminding me to shop. The $842 increase this year sums it up. Across the board increase for Ohio....whatever

Give these a read

SMS to 611611 will be the most reliable. Generally checking balance works best on weekdays during business hours (when somebody's around to fix whatever is constantly breaking).

It may help to power cycle your phone and to dial *22890 and reboot or *228 option 1 and reboot.
