Answer:
the phone does not come pre activated. Yes the code comes with the phone no matter where you buy it, 20 minutes and 30 days. You need to activate it at tracfone web site, easy to do. You can switch your old number or get new from their web site.

Answer:
I have had a TracFone for over 5 years now. My remaining minutes have always accumulated and carried over into the new time period. Just be sure to add minutes and time before your time period runs out.

Answer:
Yes, it does all- text, talk and web. I activated mine through tracfone and it supplies triple minutes for the life of the phone. It averages $9.00 a month. I'm not a big phone user. I do most of my web surfing and texting on my ipad.

Answer:
To my knowledge the answer is no. Every tracfone I have had the sim card is married to the phone. To be sure all you need is to call tracfone to be sure. Bob F.
