ALCATEL ONETOUCH Pop Icon 5" Android Smartphone
Can someone "HELP"!
I purchase the Alcatel Onetouch phone, which I just love. But have been having issue with trying to get some understanding on the promotion offer. During the airing I did not think the hosts did a not so good job explaining the promotion detail very well. But I just thought there would be more detail information in with the packet when I receive it, which it was not. TracFone customer service told me I needed to contact the orginzation I purchase the promotion from for full detail. So I call HSN customer service and they were not able to offer much information, was told to call the HSN wireless 800 number, I did but it’s all prerecored info, I was not able to ask any question.
What I need to know do I have to buy mintues every month with this offer of (1200 minutes/texts/data for 1 year service deal), or do the 400/triple suppose to automatically update each month for the first year? I understand after the first year however much mintues I choose to add will triple, but what I do not understand is how the first year work.
I’m new to this "tracfone thing" so, would appericate any and all feedback anyone can offer. Thanks
I don’t understand why those who sell these phones don’t add the manual, just a users guide… but
The FULL MANUAL CAN BE DOWNLOADED FROM THE INTERNET… which I hate to have to deal with. I want the MANUAL IN HAND.
But anyway, it is there!
Also, do note that basic phones that are given say 1200 minutes. Those minutes are divided AMONG the calls, texts & data, whereever you choose to use them. With basic phones the charge is less, e.g. for OPENED or SENT TEXTS, it costs 0.3 minutes/text. IF NOT OPENED, NO CHARGE.
HOWEVER, on the ANDROID PHONES, if you get 1200 minutes, you get 1200 call minutes, 1200 text & 1200 data… HOWEVER, EVERY TEXT, WHETHER YOU OPEN IT OR NOT COSTS YOU 1 MINUTE/TEXT.
I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT DATA!
Hope this helps.
Wish someone would help me wrt my JAWBONE ERA BEING ABLE TO BE USED AS "FULL FUNCTION" WITH THIS PHONE or not. To me, the ONLY SAFE WAY TO TALK ON A CELL PHONE WHILE DRIVING IS WITH A FULLY FUNCTIONAL EARPIECE/HANDSET, BUT I HAVE BEEN ASKING & RESEARCHING FOR MONTHS!
BTW, HSN & ALL OTHER SELLERS, WHY DON’T YOU INCLUDE THE FULL MANUAL IN THE PACKAGE? It’s like sending someone out with their glasses & only one cracked lens!
The 1200 min 1 year card just means you do not have to reactivate it until 1 year is up. But the amount of minutes you use is up to you. If you use all 1200 in a few months you will have to purchase more time. It would add time on to your yearly date of activation.
Thank you all for your reply. I did follow the instructions and got my 1200 minutes for calls/text/date. I am a light user so the average per month of about 100 mins will work well for me. So until I use up my minutes I do not have to add minutes every month? The Tracfone repersentive told me I will lose my phohe number if I did not add minutes each month.
Thanks for all your help, was pretty lost on getting it right. And they did try to get me to purchase more airtime. Much love to you all, Thanks Kallie 115
You get 1200 min, 1200 texts, and 1200 mb of data that is good for one year, which averages to 100 mins a month 100 texts and 100 mb of data. It’s ideal for a light user. Go to tracfone website and looks at different prepaid cards and its value to see if it fits your lifestyle.
Hi KALLIE115, for #416-945, the promotional package includes 400 minute PIN tripled to 1200 minutes, 1200 text messages and 1200MB of data with 365 days of service. The Triple Your Minutes for Life are programmed into the phone so when you have used up your promotional minutes and purchase additional airtime, it will automatically triple. For more details, just visit the Product Page for the phone.
Let’s keep it positive. Hover, i love a vigorous and open discussion. Keep up the give and take.
Hopefully we never stop helping those in need.
I’m such a rebel.
