In this video I talk about how to choose between Tracfone’s AT&T GSM LTE network and Tracefone’s Verizon CDMA LTE network.
In my last video I opened the Tracfone Bring Your Own Smartphone Activation Kit and reviewed the contents. Some of you may be wondering whether to choose Tracfone’s AT&T GSM LTE network or Tracefone’s Verizon CDMA LTE network.

In most cases, Tracfone is expecting customers to be bringing a smartphone they already have been using one one of the big four networks: AT&T, Verizon, Sprint or TMobile. The expectation is you would be using your current phone phone on the same network.
So if you have an AT&T or TMobile phone you would choose the Tracfone’s AT&T GSM LTE network. Any AT&T smartphone should work regardless of whether its is locked or unlocked. If you have a TMobile phone it should also work on the Tracfone AT&T network if the phone is unlocked.
If you have a Verizon or Sprint phone you may be able to use it on Tracfone’s CDMA or CDMA LTE network. In his case you’ll need to go to the Tracfone website and check the MEID of your phone to see if it is eligible for use. If your phone is eligible you can use it Tracfone’s CDMA or CDMA LTE network.
But some people want to use Tracfone and are going to buy a new or used phone. In this case I recommend pick the network with the best coverage in your area and then buy a smartphone that works on that network. Ask your family, friends, coworkers, or neighbors whether they use AT&T or Verizon and how well the network works for them.
In the US, some areas both networks have great coverage, but in others either AT&T or Verizon is great and the other isn’t. Once you choose a network, buy a phone that will work with that network.
