TracFone Wireless Inc.
March 12 2007
Burlington, KY: (Mar-05-07) A class action lawsuit filed against top prepaid cellular company, TracFone Wireless Inc., alleged that the company misled consumers by charging them at the roaming rate in their home calling area and refused to extend the length of their prepaid service periods during repairs of defective handsets. In a settlement reached, TracFone agreed to give each of the 12 million to 13 million TracFone customers 20 additional units of airtime, bringing the settlement costs to the company to about $70 million.

I unfortunately was introduced to tracfone many years ago by a late friend, I state unfortunately because I have been lied to from more than one tracfone costumer representative. The latest incident with tracfone is that my phone out of the blue suddenly went deactivated. The costumer service representative informed me to call their 800 number, all this did was result that tracfone expected me to purchase more air time to activate my phone, that ain't going to happen as I have plenty of both the minutes and date time left. I fired off an email to corporate suggesting that the situation may be best remedied without further ado. If no satisfaction results with this approach the FCC will next come into play.
