*UPDATE Employee: Tracfone Wireless Cheated me out of a huge amount of minutes, data and texts in transfer Miami Florida
I have used Tracfone for a long time, and I run the accounts of 7 family members who also use them. My mom lost her phone and when we transferred her minutes to the new phone I was sure she had a lot of minutes, but they said she had 31 and that was it. We were switching from a smartphone to a flip phone so I dismissed it due to the downgrade.
Today I checked my own minutes/etc before transferring my phone number/account to a different phone. I had 2.1 gigs of data (I had just purchased a gig), 550 minutes and over a thousand texts. I transfer it and it says it's done, but I have zero minutes/zero anything. So, I call and after a half hour on the phone, he tells me he needs another dept to see how much I had to transfer. I think nothing of it, he comes back and informs me I have 31 minutes, Zero texts, zero data. I say, no way, I was on tracfone.com and I saw what I had before I used tracfone.com to transfer it. Unfortunately, I didn't take a screenshot. He told me it didn't matter because I had just "not refreshed it". Which is not even applicable. I do not have the Tracfone app, because it often doesn't work. I did it ON A LAPTOP. You have to log in and hit "get" for that phone and it times out and requires you to refresh it each time. It isn't possible that I saw old data. I don't use my phone much, and in that 10 minutes I did not use it all up in those few minutes before the transfer was completed. I asked to talk to that department, the man refused--repeated he had called them (which was odd because he had claimed originally he was transferring me), and that was that. He just kept repeating that I was obviously looking at an old amount and I kept repeating that wasn't possible. I gave up. I got my "31 minutes" (interesting it was the same as what they said for my mom's phone).
I logged in and purchased 1000 texts for $5 since I now had lost all the ones I owned. Nothing happened. Nothing transferred. After spending more time on the phone with Tracfone it credited me the texts I just purchased. I had hoped the rest that they ripped me off for would appear, but no luck. It is just incredibly wrong. I deserved to keep what I had paid for and I have been a good customer for many years. I think the 31 must be some default for them. Very much ok, and apparently nothing I can do about it.
