Compared with other wireless providers, Tracfone is one of the most affordable options. In addition to no long-term contracts, its cellular service can be as cheap as $9 per month. If you wish to pay month to month, then its plans start as low as $15 per month.
Your talk, text, and data allowance also roll over to your next service period, provided your phone stays continually activated. If you let your service lapse, then it will not roll over.
Tracfone and Overage Charges
Unlike many other providers, Tracfone does not have overage charges. When you use up your monthly allowance of minutes, messages, or data, your service is simply cut off.
Considering other providers charge extra money by the minute, message, or MB of data, this can be a handy feature. Some, however, may find it annoying to have to purchase extra coverage when they use up their allowance.
Extra minutes, messages, and data cost the following:
- $5 for 1,000 messages
- $10 for 500 minutes
- $10 for 1 GB of data
