UPDATE AREA CODE

Occasionally, area codes change in the U.S. When this occurs, wireless phones may need to be reprogrammed with a new area code and phone number.

If you have been directed to this page, or if you are aware of an area code change and wish to check if it applies to your TracFone, please follow the instructions below.
  1. Please have your TRACFONE with you during the update process.
  2. Charge the battery of your TRACFONE or plug it into the battery charger included with your phone.
  3. You will need to have your TRACFONE Serial Number (ESN, IMEI, or MEID). To obtain the serial number simply:

    • Press the Menu key
    • Scroll with the arrow key, and select "Prepaid"
    • Scroll down with the arrow key, until you get to the option of My ESN, My IMEI, IMEI number, or Serial number
    • Press Select or OK
    • The number displayed is your Serial Number.

    • You will also need to provide the ZIP Code of the area where you will be using your TRACFONE the most.
