They also offer cheap prepaid cell phones. They don’t have the most advanced selection of headsets, but for the most part their low cost cell phones fit the occasional users they are marketing their services to.

TracFone isn’t the best option for people who use their cell phone frequently or for people who want heavy data coverage, but it is a good option for occasional users.
