TracFone Wireless is the largest independent nationwide provider of prepaid wireless communications. TracFone is a pay-as-you-go, prepaid wireless service that has the largest digital coverage area in the United States. There are no hidden charges, nationwide long distance is already included in your price, and there’s never a roaming surcharge, just a flat rate. Plus, Tracfone offers all the full featured calling features such as caller ID, call waiting, 3-way calling, voicemail, text messaging, and inexpensive roaming (or free on GSM models).
The unique thing about Tracfone is their patented airtime balance display and billing system. So you always know right where you stand with regard to how many minutes you have and when you need to get more. Although Tracfone Wireless is known to be more expensive than other competing providers, they do offer widely available promotional codes which can actually make the service a lot cheaper.
