Updating roaming tracfone
Updating roaming tracfone - updating boot camp 2 1
Navigate to the activation page on the Trac Fone website to upgrade your phone.
Provide information concerning your account and the two telephones.
Upgrading your Trac Fone will allow you to switch to another Trac Fone prepaid phone at any time.
Since Trac Fone is prepaid, upgrades are preformed at any time throughout your service and there are no additional fees.
*22890 is for the initial activation where you are programming it onto the cell network. *22891 is for updating the PRL part without messing with the phone's programming.
It shouldn't hurt anything if you re-do *22890 on a working phone. A while ago, there was someone who lived where he was assigned to Verizon.
I had a CDMA Tracfone several years ago that ran on Verizon that worked great no matter where I went. I could not get a cell signal until I returned to the county I live in. I'm not sure if you'd see the PRL change or not - if the system does not need to change it, then it won't change for sure.
I checked it once and it gave me a warning that I may incurred significant costs. wrj54, I have Data Enabled (over mobile) and Data Roaming unchecked - so those are fine as is - since the phone should not be trying to use data for a mobile call AFAIK.
Do not call customer service on the phone you plan to upgrade from.
Doing so will result in losing the connection with the representative while in the middle of upgrading your phone.
So if Tracfone doesn't like roaming, they shouldn't allow subscribers in certain areas.
Since the Tracfone Android system is obviously based on the Page Plus system, the roaming situation is likely to be a headache. So it remains to be seen if Tracfone Android will have free roaming or if it will be like Net10/Straight Talk.
Also, under Mobile Network, I do not have Data Enabled (over mobile) nor Data Roaming checked.
