What does Tracfone Text Messaging Cost?

Sending a Text message with a Tracfone is easy. The newer Tracfones charge .3 Minutes per text for sending and receiveing.

The cost is relative to the price you are paying per minute. The worst rate you can buy Tracfone Minutes is 30 cents a minute.  That would cost you 10 cents a text.  If you are paying 8.8 cents per Tracfone Minute then you are paying 3 cents per message. If you have DMFL on your phone you can get 900 minutes for $80 (8.8 cents a minute).


The older Tracfones cost .5 units each way. There were a couple of older Tracfones that only charged to send, and free to receive texts. The Nokia 1100 is a free text receiver.

What is the Tracfone Value Plan?

The Value Plan is an automatic monthly pay plan that works from either your charge card or debit card. Your card will be billed every month for a set number of minutes. I recommend signing up for the smallest automatic billing amount. With the Value Plan you can add minutes if you are low any time with Value Bundles. The Tracfone Value Plan rate is 20/10 cents per minute( ten cents a minute with DMFL phones).


Tracfone Contract Plan

Auto billing reminds me of a contract phone. The great thing is you can quit any time you want and not pay a penalty.
