According to HSN, the phone is a triple minutes for life device and it comes with 600 minutes, 600 texts, 600 MB of data and 90 days of service.
HSN also says that a TracFone 60 minute card (when tripped) provides 180 minutes, 180 texts and 180 MB. This represents a major change from the way data and texts are billed compared with other TracFones where texts cost a third of a minute and data is charged at 1.5 minutes per KB (1536 minutes per MB).
One minute per MB is equivalent to 11¢/MB using a $19.99 "60 Minute" card and 5¢/MB using a $29.99 200 minute Monthly Value Plan card. TracFone is also selling data only cards in three denominations: 300 MB for $10, 750 MB for $20 and 2 GB for $50 which is 2.5 to 3.3 cents/MB. These are very good prices for data which is not something I'd expect form TracFone. If only they had BYOP.
