How do you call on a Tracfone?

Answered by Jeremy Urbaniak

To make a call on a Tracfone, you can follow these steps:

1. Locate the “Phone” icon on your Tracfone’s main screen. It is usually represented by a green phone receiver symbol. Tap on this icon to open the phone application.

2. Once the phone application is opened, you will see various options such as call history, contacts, and dial pad. Look for the “Dial pad” icon, which is typically represented by a keypad or a numeric keypad symbol. Tap on this icon to access the dial pad.

3. On the dial pad, you can enter the desired phone number you wish to call. Simply tap on the corresponding numbers on the keypad to enter the digits. As you enter the numbers, you will see them appearing on the screen.

4. After entering the phone number, double-check it for accuracy to ensure you have entered the correct digits. If needed, you can use the delete or backspace key on the dial pad to make any corrections.

5. Once you have entered the correct phone number, you are ready to place the call. Tap on the “Phone” icon, typically represented by a green phone receiver symbol, to initiate the call. Your Tracfone will then start dialing the entered number.

6. During the call, you can adjust the call volume by using the volume buttons on the side of your Tracfone. If you need to lock the screen while on a call, simply press the PWR/LOCK key, usually located on the side or top of the device.

7. When you are finished with the call and want to end it, tap on the “End call” icon. This icon is usually represented by a red phone receiver symbol. Tapping on it will terminate the call.

8. After ending the call, you will be taken back to the phone application screen. To return to the main screen of your Tracfone, press the HOME key. This key is often located at the bottom center or bottom left of the device and is typically represented by a home symbol.

It’s worth noting that the specific layout and icons on your Tracfone may vary slightly depending on the model and operating system version. However, the basic steps outlined above should apply to most Tracfone devices.

Remember, if you encounter any difficulties or have additional questions, you can always refer to the user manual that came with your Tracfone or reach out to Tracfone customer support for further assistance.
