Can you switch sim cards in tracfones?

I would like to use a different tracfone but keep my sim card.


Answer by  fishy (1085)

The short answer is no. Switching SIM cards will not work because the SIM card itself is tied to the serial number of the phone which is located on the phone's internal board.

Physically, all SIM cards are essentially identical, and can be exchanged from one card to another. However, Tracphones are programmed to only accept the SIM card that they are shipped with.

I just spent 40 minutes trying to understand the Tracfone service rep in India. The gist of the conversation is that they will not let me transfer the sim card to another phone. They say the phone and the card are a unit and can't be separated.

Yes you can, but make sure you call tracfone first and let them know so they can switch the minutes over properly.

Yes you can all you would have to do first is save all of your stuff like contacts and things to your sim card and once you purchase the phone you can switch the sim out and it will work fine.

yes you can. You will need to take the old one and put it in the new one before you add any airtime or set the phone up for the first time.
