    No smartphones, tracfone currently only offers feature phones and they are not smart. Their current best phone is the LG840G, LG 800G and Samsung S425G.

    Not possible, tracfone installed programs on their SIM to work only on their phones.

    An alternative option is to go with Straight Talk or Net10. Both are owned by Tracfone, offers smartphones and allows byod or bring your own device.
