It looks like Tracfone is finally going to offer Android phones and decent data amounts.

I have no idea if they will offer the bring-your-own-device SIM card for Tracfone like Net10/Straight Talk yet, though. So far, I just know about the basic Android phones that Tracfone will probably offer like Net10/ST do.

As it is, however, this is a giant step forward for Tracfone, and I'm glad they finally took it.

Those data prices seem really terrible

Not really. It looks like the data rolls over with each addition of more data or service time. A lot of the pay-as-you go carriers have worse prices for this type of data plan.

The month-to-month data plans look like a much better deal at first glance, but then you have to keep paying for the data each month. Plus, your data count gets reset every month, so you may lose out on some of your data if you don't use it before the month's end.

  • I think it's data for any use. (The TOS for the sister companies Net10 and Straight Talk forbid video streaming or WiFi hotspot, but that's because they advertise cheap unlimited data plans for those two. I doubt it will apply to this Tracfone plan, because data is limited, anyway.)
  • Like I said, no word on whether BYOD will be available. I don't even know for sure what phones Tracfone will offer yet!

All of the leaked models have 3G, and the majority of Net10/ST Android phones run on 3G as well.

(The reason I focus on Net10 and ST so much in these comparisons is because all three brands are owned by the same company, and thus share a very similar phone selection.)

Wow 50 quid for two gigabytes of data that's poo pooe, over here on pay as you go you can get unlimited 3G (soon to be 4G) for little as 20 euros a month.

Well, you can get unlimited text+data on T-Mobile for $30/month (with 100 minutes), and there are unlimited everything plans for $40-50 per month.

This is clearly for those who use their data sporadically (load up just what you need).

HSN is the first to sell Tracfone's Android phone. They have been selling a special bundle with the phone + 600 minutes + 600 texts + 600MB data + case + $25 Google Play credit for $129.99.

I'm waiting for them to offer just a SIM card (like Net10 and ST), so that I can get a non-poo pooty phone and use it on there.

Maybe I would consider getting this phone if it were like $50 as my LG Tracfone was, but not at $130 or $170.
