They sell other phones, and I believe that target sells some phones that work on their network if I remember correctly.

Yes, I know someone who bought a flip phone for $5 at Rite Aid and has been using it for his safelink plan. (One good bonus is that he can now receive and send picture messages, however unclear they may be.)

yes
Thanks for replying. AFAIK, Safelink only provides talk & text, so how can you use data on that plan?

Ok, so how does this work? I buy a smartphone w/o getting a plan. How do I get the # & Safelink service transferred to the new phone?

So it needs to be a Tracfone, not just any smartphone?
