Tracfone Unlimited Airtime Plans
Tracfone quietly just released three new smartphone-only airtime card options with unlimited talk and text. Below are the details and we will share how the work and if it is a good deal.

Many users have suspected Tracfone would eventually offer an unlimited option with the cost of talk and text dwindling and that day has arrived.

Over the last few years Tracfone has stopped offering Triple Minutes for Life and introduced smartphone-only airtime cards with varying amounts of talk/text/data. The smartphone-only cards are generally a better deal for those who use all three 'buckets' and Tracfone also added Text only, Talk only and Data only airtime cards as add-ons.

Now we see three smartphone-only cards available on the Tracfone website and the Tracfone My Account App for purchase that come with unlimited talk and text, 30 days of service, and between 1 and 3 GB data depending on which card you get.

Let's jump straight into how they will work:

How the New Tracfone Unlimited Plans Work

The new unlimited plans are for smartphones only and feature unlimited talk and text while also providing 30 service days. They vary on price depending how much data you want with 1, 2 and 3 GB available.
  • $20 plan gets 1 GB
  • $25 plan gets 2 GB
  • $30 plan gets 3 GB
The cards should work in the same way other airtime cards work - they come with unlimited carryover (for the data) so if you get the 3 GB and only use 1 GB in a month, you should carry over the extra 2 GB to the next month (as long as you get additional service days or renew the monthly plan).

Tracfone has confirmed in their FAQ that customers won't lose any existing talk/text when they get the unlimited plan, all balances will carry over. For example, if you have 90 service days and 200 talk minutes and purchase one of the unlimited plans, you will get 30 additional service days added to your account, and if you don't renew the unlimited plan after 30 days, you will still have the 200 talk minutes.

Auto-refill is not currently offered, so users will have to add a new unlimited card each month to continue.

Are the Unlimited Plans a Good Deal?

Let's break down the cost and see how the value of these new airtime options from Tracfone work.

It is hard to judge exactly how much 'unlimited' calling and texting are worth since it depends on how much one typically uses, but many users can go through a few hundred calling minutes each month and avid texters could use several thousand texts.

Let's look at a possible example: If you were to use about 250 talk, 1000 texts and 1 GB data in a month, that would cost individually $20 ($5 for 250 talk, $5 for 1000 texts, $10 for 1 GB data). But that doesn't include the cost of service days, which is around $5 for 30 days.

The $20 smartphone card comes with 300 talk, 1000 text, 1 GB data and 30 service days, so it is already a good deal for heavy users.

Now with the unlimited smartphone plan at $20 for the same benefits but no cap on talk and text, it is a better deal for heavy users. However, one point to note, there is no carryover for talk and text with the unlimited plan so it is really only best for those who use upwards of 300 talk and 1000 text per month.

The $30 unlimited smartphone plan is an even better deal IF you use 1-3 GB data per month. The data alone is worth the $30 so you basically get free talk, text and service. If you don't use all your data, it rolls over to the next month.

Overall these new unlimited smartphone plans are a great deal but only for Tracfone users who go through a lot of talk, text and data each month. For some users it will make more sense to continue with the other airtime card options.

If you don't use a lot of minutes, a card like the $49 365 day airtime card (with 1200 talk/text and 3GB data) is a great option right now.

We don't expect Tracfone to change the other airtime card offerings at this time.
