as taken from Tracfone's Terms and Conditions of Service

With certain TRACFONE phone models, you can download ring tones, graphics, access information services such as news, weather and sports ("Information Services") and utilize multi-media services ("MMS") (ringtones, graphics, Information Services and MMS are collectively referred to as "Data Services") through TracFone Wireless Mobile Web ("WAP"). Data Services are additional Services offered by TracFone Wireless, and there is an additional charge or debit of minutes/units for use of such services.

Access/Purchase Data Services. In order to purchase, download or access TracFone Wireless Data Services, your TRACFONE must have active service and sufficient available airtime (minutes). Your TRACFONE will not let you open the WAP browser without an airtime balance of at least 10 minutes.

Each time you access the TracFone Wireless WAP with your TRACFONE’s browser, 0.5 units per minute will be deducted from your TRACFONE ("Access Charges"). Access Charges are deducted in full minute increments. WAP access of less than 60 seconds is rounded up to the next full minute.

Access Charges begin when your TRACFONE makes a data connection. This should occur shortly after you open your browser, send or receive a multi-media message (e.g., a picture), initiate a content download, view subscribed Information Services or if WAP access is initiated for any other purpose. Access Charges end when the data connection terminates. This should occur shortly after you close your browser, successfully receive or send a multi-media message (e.g., a picture), after a successful content download or after any other closure of a WAP session. The WAP access duration and the related Access Charges are NOT determined from the exact moment you press a button on your TRACFONE to open or close the browser.

In addition to the Access Charges, there will be an additional one-time charge for any content you select to download ("Content Charge") and if you subscribe to an Information Services ("Subscription Charge"). The Content Charges and Subscription Charges vary depending on the type of content and/or subscription. You will be advised of the Content Charges and/or Subscription Charges prior to finalizing your purchase.

The Data Services you purchase and download may only be used or viewed on the TRACFONE for which they were purchased and cannot be transferred to any other device, including a new or replacement TRACFONE. Data Services are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Purchase Options for Data Services: You may purchase Data Services either through your TracFone’s WAP browser or through the Internet (with a personal computer) at

When you purchase Data Services from the Internet at, the Content Charge will be shown in both U.S. Dollars and in minutes/units. You will have the opportunity to select one of two payment options: (1) using a credit card to pay the purchase price shown, or (2) a direct deduction of minutes from your TRACFONE. The number of minutes to be charged is based on the last airtime card added to your TRACFONE. See Purchasing Data Services With Airtime Minutes below.
