Tracfone Company Structure

This is a question we see from time to time, and while the short answer is that Tracfone is a prepaid cell phone company, it does get a little more complicated.

We want to provide here a quick and concise explanation to help everyone understand who Tracfone is, and what they do. Let's get to it.

Tracfone Wireless INC is a company under one of Mexico's largest telecommunication companies called American Movil. Tracfone then also has other wireless cell phone companies under them. There are quite a few:

  • TracFone
  • Net10
  • Straight Talk
  • SafeLink Wireless
  • Telcel America
  • Simple Mobile
  • Page Plus Cellular

Each of these companies is different, offering different phones, minute plans, etc. So it can be easy to think they are all the same, because they are all owned by Tracfone, but they are actually all very separate.

Straight Talk and Net10 each offer various monthly plans, while Tracfone is more geared towards minute refill cards and super cheap phones.

It is important to recognize that these are similar companies, but not the same, so a phone from Straight Talk will probably not work with Tracfone. Also, Tracfone Promo Codes are specifically for Tracfone.

When thinking about which service you would want to use, you can just evaluate what your needs are. Straight Talk and Net10 have more unlimited options, while Tracfone is more for pay as you go.

We hope this gives some clarification on Tracfone, and on the other brands which seem similar. Be sure to leave a comment if you have further questions on this.
