The Top 3 CDMA Phones Offered by TracfoneCDMA cell phones from Tracfone use the CDMA networks of either Verizon or Sprint. While GSM phones are more widely used by Tracfone customers, using a CDMA phone may work better in your area.
Note: With the recent release of four Android powered smartphones available with Tracfone on CDMA networks, this post does not take them into account at this time. But we will update in the near future.

We will cover the Top 3 Cell Phones from Tracfone that use the CDMA networks. If you don't know enough about CDMA and GSM, you should read our recent post covering the Difference between Tracfone CDMA and GSM phones and which is right for you before going much further.
CDMA phones, which end in a 'C', like LG 501C, are not as popular with Tracfone and there are not as many phones to choose from. There might be several reasons for this, but some suggest it is because using CDMA networks costs Tracfone more than GSM networks.
