Now, we want to go over one more important point: We've noticed a number of readers who have questions about how Triple Minutes for Life works with the smartphones, and especially the new smartphone airtime cards.
Click this and after a few seconds you should see what your remaining balance looks like.
You can do this either on a computer, or from your phone.All smartphones from Tracfone, and any phones on the Tracfone BYOP program, come with Triple Minutes for Life.However, the Smartphone-Only airtime cards do not triple, and neither do the text or data cards.This is certainly disappointing for some, but these cards are already a good deal, and it seems that Tracfone wants to try and make things a little more simple.This is a question many are asking, because there is no automatic location on Tracfone smartphones for accessing your current minutes balance like there is on non-Android phones.All of the new Android phones from Tracfone come with Triple Minutes for Life, which is a great bonus.
