Then around the middle of October, ShopCellDeals' TracFone bargains started to disappear. The prices of phones bundled with a year of service doubled and then mostly vanished along with the discounted airtime. TracFone watchers wondered if ShopCellDeals had suddenly gotten greedy or if they had been cut off by TracFone for some reason.
TracFone is seeking an injunction to block Simply Wireless from selling TracFone bundles as well as unspecified damages, including punitive damages.
I suspect this means the end of TracFone airtime discounts over 10%. It also puts the future of cheap TracFone plus airtime bundles in doubt.
