If you have a Tracfone plan, you can pick up any Canadian cell phone service at any of the outlets that are found throughout the country. However, you may have better luck getting a new one from your original Tracfone dealer. They should be able to tell you where to go to purchase a new cell phone. The same is true if you bought your first Tracfone and it does not work in Canada. Ask for the number to your Tracfone dealer.
Can you use your Tracfone abroad? Yes, you can. Just make sure that the country you are using the cell phone to have an equivalent telephone system. For example, in the United States, the two major networks are AT&T and Verizon. When calling internationally, you should use a common network like the one in Canada, or at least a similar one.
Does my Tracfone phone work overseas? Of course it does. Any international cell phone service will work just as well as one that is used here in Canada. You just need to find out which companies in other countries offer Tracfones.
Is there a chance I’ll get a better price if I pay for my Tracfone phone online? Yes. There are many companies out there that offer cell phones online at discount prices. However, you still need to purchase the same number (and pay for it) online through the company’s US site, or another online store where they are available.
Does my Tracfone phone service work internationally when I am traveling outside of Canada? Yes, as long as you are purchasing your Tracfone from a US based company. Keep in mind though that some wireless companies only offer their services to customers inside the United States. In order to get your international calls charged to your domestic number, you will have to check with the wireless company about it.
Does my Tracfone phone work when I use my Global Access card? This works like a regular cell phone. It is a rechargeable device that can be used in any cell phone network in the world. If you purchase this product, your international cell phone service will come to your personal laptop or PC, and you can then connect it to your Tracfone (or any other cell phone that you are using) online.
How do I know if my Tracfone phone is working in Canada? Easy! You just connect it to the internet. If you see an icon on the screen that says “TRAC”, that means your phone is connected to a TRACFone network in Canada. Also, if you see the word “APN” next to the icon, that is an access point that lets you make telephone calls. And that’s all there is to it!
Does my Tracfone phone work when I am abroad? The way it works is pretty easy. When you receive a call in Canada, your phone is automatically linked to the Internet via a high-speed cellular connection. Your cell phone then searches for a compatible wireless service provider in order to connect with the Tracfone network.
Can I call outside of Canada using my Tracfone? Yes, you can. Your Tracfone will allow you to make local calls to any cell phone number in the world, whether it is a land line mobile phone or VOIP phone.
Does my Tracfone phone work in the winter months in Canada? It really depends upon which area you are using the phone at. If you live in a cold climate where cell phone signals are weaker, and where you would not usually use a land line, then this would be a good option to consider.
