Family Plan for under $30/ month!!! Wow!
Wow, Tracfone offers a family plan for under $30 a month and up to 4 phones. That's unbelievable! I will definitely look into this as it makes sense for my fam. With 2 pre-teens, I want to be able to have control and start them off with small amount of minutes. Thanks for the tip :)
Adding second phone to Monthly Plan

I have two Tracfones, I already have my primary number as (snip) and this is set up for a Tracfone Family Value Plan for the $9.99 a month to be deducted from my checking account every month. Now I have a second phone, (snip) that I would like to add to the primary phone.
They both are active and presently have minutes attached to them. I love the numbers. Will you include the second number to the primary, and bill me for both every month, directly out of my checking account. What would be the total amount, including taxes for this service? Appreciate you informing me as to your progress.
This site is not run by Tracfone, but I'll try to answer based on what's written on their website. In terms of payment, you can use "Major credit card or a debit card with a Visa or MasterCard logo." Since you currently have the plan, I assume you assigned a debit card for payment which is associated with your checking account.
In terms of your phone numbers. Since your second phone is also an active Tracfone, then all you need to do is enroll it in your Family plan. You need to enroll additional Tracfones at least 3 days before the next payment date. Since you're simply enrolling an already active Tracfone in the monthly plan, the phone number should not change.
The taxes vary depending on the state you live. For example, the tax I paid on airtime cares changed when I moved to a different state. The overall percentage of the tax should be close to what you pay on your current phone (not exactly if there are fixed fees per phone).
For the convenience of other readers let me add that what to do if your second phone is not currently a Tracfone. You then have to get a new Tracfone, choose to port your number when you activate the new Tracfone. After the port is complete, you can then enroll the new Tracfone with the ported number to your Tracfone monthly plan.
Hope this helps.
