TracFone / ate my phone number of 8 years; can't recover from their problem no knowledgeable techies

1 Miami, United States Review updated:

tried to add minutes, didn't work, called tracfone they said sim expired. Sims don't expire and there were remaining minutes and expiration date was 2024. got all kinds of excuses and runarounds. a knowledgeable tech could have gotten into database and solved whatever problem they created. Chat boards said that that day there were lots of people unable to add minutes, so perhaps their system had been hacked and customer/sim data stolen. complained to better business bureau and tracfone remained adamant that there was nothing they would do to resolve my problem. Someone named 'Betty" kept sending emails in very poor English, so it's probably an avatar, but clearing making excuses and more than likely never spoke with anyone level 3 in tech to solve the problem. Guess they have enough business they can be nasty and uncooperative. This number is one I cannot afford to lose for business purpose, and there is data on the sim I need. My lawyer is drafting the complaint and this 'company' will be sued. and as much publicity around the case as I can generate, so other customers will be alerted.

I'm a tracfone CSR. That message displayed in your cell phone is quite enough to send you a new cell phone. Try again and good luck.

I paid for 1 year extension and minutes - charge appeared on my credit card but phone not updated. Called Tracfone and was told that the extension had been credited to someone else's phone. They refused to do anything about it - too bad sucker.

I just got screwed. Bought a 120+20 minutes, and guess where the minutes went...that's right forks, to someone else's phone. I am now on the warpath, everyone will hear about tracfone and their business ethics. Oh, the attorney general also. Peace!

Tracfone - Company nonresponsive to requests

Tracfone does not respect requests to "unsubscribe" from their emails. They keep emailing you even after you've gone through their overly elaborate unsubscribe procedure. Also, their customer service (perhaps in the Philippines) is dim-witted, if well-intentioned.

For the life of me I can't understand what they are saying. I'm not deaf or anything like that, their accents are so strong words can't understood. I love my Tracfone but customer service is impossible.

Trac phones suck. Tech help is worse. There is no solution to this problem. You can, like I did, spend hours with techs who don't know what they are doing...They should pay me for my time!
