I have been attempting to use wifi calling for over a 12 months. Have a LG41C that doesn’t seem to assist it. I’ve checked with Tracfone many tomes and they say the Pixi Avion is the one mannequin that supports it. Thanks for posting this. I want to know if anybody has made wifi calls from a cruise ship successfully. I exploit an iPhone 6 under the BYOP on TracFone, and it is GSM appropriate.
I have been utilizing Google Voice to to make free calls with my Tracfone for several years now. Works great for those calls the place you hit a menu system after which get placed on hold. I have been using the “Vonage Mobile App” free to make outgoing calls by way of WiFi using my Tracfone number (which I find to be an advantage over Google).
I tested it and the receiving caller ID showed my TracFone number. It was so lifeless, simple to set up. The app took care of “sensing” my phone number (I don’t know how they’re ready to do this) and it just works with my present contact list. The downside is that it might solely ship SMS messages to other Vonage users, and it would not receive incoming calls. But it surely saves me SO MANY minutes if I know I will do a long convention name. Thanks for this tutorial I all the time go to you first for all issues tracfone.
I have used Google Voice (earlier than Hangouts was around) for many of my calls. I had GV earlier than I had a Tracfone. I have GV forwarded to my Tracfone quantity. I use the GV we important quantity. I can reply GV on either the Tracfone desktop or tablet. In the Settings on GV, you’ll be able to set it as much as forward to any number you need, including a landline. You’ll be able to decide texts over GV that are forwarded to the Tracfone (can’t on a landline). If I’m in the WiFi area I can reply the Tracfone as a cell or by the WiFi on the GV directly (the choice pops up on the phone).
Only a select few individuals know the Tracfone number. I do not text a lot but if I do reply to a text despatched to GV quantity by mobile phone the quantity they are going to see on the CID will be the GV number and not Tracfone number. It does eat up minute/text items to reply through Tracfone, however I’m not on the telephone that a lot anyway. I might use the data time, or WiFi, if I wished to make use of Hangouts or GV as well.
I can use instruments at GV to dam undesirable callers as well. Don’t suppose that can be done on Tracfone. My system works effectively for me. Not for everybody. I might use my previous unused smartphone as a WiFi telephone as properly if needed for GV. It would be good if TF Reviewer would list wifi calling enabled phones.

I wish to improve my faithful LG41C! Which tracfone phones provide wifi calling? I’ve iPhone 6s on the Bhopal program and validated everything for wifi calling above. The site instructed me all is able to go and needs to be up and ready in about an hour. Well that was nine hours ago and nonetheless cannot even flip the function on.
It’s alleged to be in my choices, but it’s even there. Only a query. Should you port your TracFone number to Google Voice what occurs to your TracFone account? The rationale I ask I have Straight Talk on this cellphone, I wouldn’t have web at the house and my Google Voice uses my cellular data to make and receive calls.
If I port the number won’t I unfastened my TracFone account and service? Sorry for such a protracted question but I felt like I had to explain why. I know the telephone is capable but apparently not with TracFone service, no less than not on the AT&T community. I am known as and eventually spoke to somebody who stated that Tracfone supports WiFi calling only on the T-Mobile network — and my phone just isn’t T-Mobile suitable. So, it seems that, until one uses Tracfone with the T-Mobile network, the Google Voice possibility described in this article is the most effective option. I wanted to check out the Wi-Fi calling characteristic with a SIM card from Tracfone that makes use of the T-Mobile network.
