Contract-free, wireless cell phones allow you to experience all the freedom of owning a cell phone without having to pay outrageous monthly fees. One of the companies that is well known for contract-free service is TracFone. This company allows you to port your old cell phone number over to its services so you can continue to get phone calls and texts, but discontinue paying monthly service charges.
Purchase a cell phone that can be used with Tracfone services. Not every cell phone will work with every provider, and you need to research the product to ensure that it works with Tracfone. The phone may be purchased online, or at a third party retailer. Open your Web browser and go to the Tracfone page called “Transferring my Number from Another Company.”
