Tracfone Review

Now Tracfone DMFL is Available

The Tracfone DMFL Card is for sale from Tracfone for $50. The Double Minutes for Life Card provides twice the minutes on your phone as the Minute Card states. Tracfone's $20 60 minute card will install 120 minutes on your phone. This prices Tracfone Minutes down close to ten cents a minute which makes them competitive. Without DMFL at 20 to 40 cents a minute the Tracfone minutes are too pricey to use except in an emergencywithout DMFL. The $79.99 Tracfone card available at gives you 900 minutes which comes to 8.8 cents per minute. This is one of the best prepaid cell phone rates.

Motorola W376 from Tracfone
Motorola W376 from Tracfone is the largest Prepaid Cellular provider in the US. With Prepaid cell phones you buy the phone, activate it and then add minute cards to it. Each prepaid minute card will give you a a stated number of minutes.

Do Not Purchase a Tracfone DMFL Card

If your phone does not have DMFL on it you are better off to buy a new Tracfone with DMFL. You can buy a new Moto W370 (with DMFL on it) for the same price as a Double Minutes for life card.

Where to Buy a Prepaid Tracfone

You can purchase a Tracfone at eBay, at Walmart, Best Buy, Staples and many other places. Often the best deal and largest selection is at the Web site. There are three or four different specials most of the time available at the web site.

Do Not Purchase a Tracfone

Don't purchase a Tracfone that doesn't have double minutes for life included. The Double minutes program is such a good deal you will get the nicest phone and save money by buying a Tracfone with DMFL already on it.

Half Price Text Messages

Your text messaging will also be half as much with DMFL also. Most Tracfones cost .3 units per message both to receive and send. When you buy your minutes with TracFone DMFL your texts will be half price also. Some of the older Tracfones charge .5 units in and out. There are some older Tracfones do not charge for incoming texts (I believe the Nokia 1100 is one).
