    I read all the reviews and wanted to add some tips that might help someone. I had an Android phone from Trac Fone. I don’t want an expensive iPhone plan but wanted a better phone. When I saw this iPhone made for Trac Fone, I was hopeful. Bought this mainly to have a better camera and connectivity to my Apple lap top. The price is better then any other iPhone and works with Trac Fone inexpensive plans. With both phones charged and ready I tried to activate this phone on the Trac Fone web site. No go. The message I got was that it didn’t recognize the Serial Number that came with the phone. Customer support transferred me 3 times and then I got cut off. I looked up on you tube how to transfer from Android to iPhone. It worked until the last step. Gave me an error message many times. Tried rebooting the phones and starting again. Same message. I was going to return this phone but thought I’d see if the SIM card in my Android would fit in the iPhone. IT DID!! I hadn’t expected that. Who knew? I’ve been able to get the phone up and working with all my contacts, downloaded all my pictures from my Apple computer, etc.. Although Trac Fone doesn’t know what kind of phone I have … I don’t think it will matter. The phone has TFW initials (Trac Fone Wireless) on the top of the phone so it is recognizing that this is a Trac Fone Phone. I have received calls and texts with no trouble and connected to all my accounts. My work APP is working too. Just saying. Hope it helps.

    This 5G iPhone SE 3rd Generation has a new esim card that makes it way more difficult to activate if you even can. I was told that it could not be activated over the phone and I had to do it online instead. I couldn’t even do that because the website was pretty much telling me the same thing and shouldn’t have been as difficult as it was. To each their own, but I don’t recommend this model at all.

    Over the years, I’ve bought numerous Tracfones. A couple for myself, and several for relatives, coworkers, and friends as second phones for them. Until now all were Androids and I never had an issue activating them online and getting them up and running for those I got them for… until now. So I got this iPhone SE for myself since my other one is old, and need this for work purposes. It came with the phone, and a packet from Tracfone with a physical sim card, and activation numbers. Seems straightforward. I go in to activate the phone and it keeps telling me my physical sim (inserted) was an “electronic sim” and would not continue. Tried otherwise, and it still froze up – so I had to call Tracfone “customer service”…

    Rep 1 tells me from their non-U.S. call center that I had to “buy a new number as well as a plan”. No – you do not have to buy a new number. He kept asking me for my credit card. I hung up and called back. Rep 2 says the physical sim I was sent doesn’t show up as anything other than an e-sim, and he gets confused, so transfers me to an upper level tech person. Rep 3 is almost as confused and proceeds to tell me that the sim number that came with this “can’t be used on Tracfone, but instead needs to be used on Straight Talk Wireless” (also owned now by Verizon alone with Trac, and plans cost more there). After some discussion about no, I was not going to do that, somehow he then figures out how to activate this on a Tracfone plan (less money). I won’t go into much more as it would be a small novel, but the entire process took no less than two hours to get this thing up and running.

    In the end, I had to put it on a temporary plan just to get this done and will switch to what I wanted later, hoping the phone and plan continues to work properly along the way. But I have never, ever, experienced such a “cluster” with Tracfone, and after this, probably will not be recommending them to anyone again. Too many other options. Again – this PHONE is a nice little iPhone for those who just want the most basic iPhone – nothing wrong with that. But I would suggest buying it unlocked if you get the SE, so you can use it on a service OTHER than Tracfone.

    It took three days of back-and-forth (and a very large number of customer “service” representatives hanging up after failing to make progress with the activation), but I finally lucked into a representative that found the steps that enabled this phone to work.

    As to the telephone itself, it seems like a reasonable value for the price.

    I don’t expect a great deal from a budget device, but, then again, I don’t want a great deal from any cell phone. Indeed, if I could get a reasonable cell phone with even more minimal features and which also was not using Android, I would prefer it to this more featureful device.

    This is Tracfone’s only latest phone. Works great. Comes brand new. Highly recommended. Does not have all features like the iPhone 14. But that’s ok. You save around half the amount of money on this device itself. Tracfone really needs to release the latest IPhone and android devices in order to grab more customers. That’s my opinion.

    The only problem with this phone was it’s legal to TracFone and TracFone told me ““ this is not compatible with their system so this is not a TracFone this is not the sellers fault it’s not Amazon‘s fault it’s just Trac phones fault they’re liars I went round around for three months with this with Trac but they’re the worst

    I watched a lot of videos on this and the iPhone 13 mini. It’s funny that most of them knock certain elements of the phone. The camera is fantastic. It charges very fast. Has plenty of storage. The big plus for me is the size. It’s just right for me.

    Needed a replacement for my 7 year old iPhone SE. This one adds 5G and works great.
