Customer service is terrible. Do not try to be helpful at all. Act like you are a bother to them. The phones are terrible.

I’ve had Tracfone and then Safelink for years, and it has been a challenge .. especially this past year. Since November, my phone has been deactivated numerous times .. each after spending hours on the phone with “managers” in the Philippines. I’m disabled and can’t be without a working phone. I am fed up with them and their supposed “customer service”.
