4G LTE Arrives at TracFone

If you have the need for speed, then you’ll love the latest and greatest service from TracFone Wireless! Now, through our new BYOP® (Bring Your Own Phone) program, you can easily bring your 4G LTE smartphone* over to TracFone Wireless and enjoy one of the most affordable plans in America on one of the two largest and most dependable networks.

Bringing your own 4G LTE smartphone to TracFone is as easy as 1–2–3!

1. Check if it’s compatible – Head to TracFone and follow the instructions to see if your phone works with our BYOP program.
2. Buy a SIM kit & airtime card – If your device is compatible, simply purchase a SIM kit and choose the airtime service plan that is right for you.
3. Activate Your Phone – Complete the BYOP process by registering your device and enjoy TracFone’s 4G LTE service!

With this technology at your fingertips, you’ll be able to experience 4G LTE service so fast, your thumbs will have a hard time keeping up. But be careful, when you have 4G LTE on your smartphone, you’ll want other things in your life to be just as fast! Here are our top three things we wish had 4G LTE speeds:

1. Washing Machines

Doing laundry can definitely be a hassle. Not only is it a multi-step process, but you can also end up waiting hours to finish just one load. Imagine if there was a 4G LTE setting on the washer and dryer. You could clean all of your clothes in a matter of minutes! Now if only there were a machine that could fold the clothes for you…

2. Amusement Park Lines

For all of the thrill seekers, there is nothing more fulfilling than a roaring rollercoaster. With their twists and turns, dips and dives, and loop-de-loops, they are sure to give you a rush of adrenaline and an ear-to-ear smile. However, waiting in line for 45 minutes just to hop on a 90-second ride can definitely take the “Amusement” out of Amusement Park. But, if the line was powered by 4G LTE, it might even be more fun than the rollercoaster itself!

3. Pizza Deliveries
Nothing satisfies hunger quite like a piping hot pizza! Crunchy crust, gooey cheese, and tasty toppings come together beautifully to create a food so delicious, it’s a wonder why we eat anything else. But sometimes when it takes the delivery guy more than an hour to supply the supreme snack, you start to question whether the order was worth it. Now if only his car was powered by 4G LTE, you’d get your pizza faster than you can say “stuffed crust!”
