What Happens When I Roam With Tracfone?


TracFone is one of the largest prepaid mobile telephone service providers in the United States. It’s headquartered in Miami, and it offers nationwide coverage through a combination of local, long-distance, international and roaming services to more than 18 million customers.

Networks and Coverage Area – TracFone prepaid telephones include models by Samsung, Motorola, LG and Kyocera. You can buy airtime minutes online, over the telephone or through airtime cards sold at retail stores. TracFone does not have its own cellular network, but uses those of carriers such as AT&T and Verizon. Your network coverage area is determined by your location and the type of telephone you own. Your network coverage area depends on the network your telephone was designed to primarily operate on.

Roaming Conditions – Roaming occurs when you use your TracFone telephone outside of your assigned network coverage area. You “roam” onto other carriers’ networks in order to continuing making and receiving calls.
