### Do you use a TRAC PHONE? Think your ANONYMOUS? Guess what... ###
I have a TRAC PHONE. Paid cash for it as well as the minutes for it. The idea for the purchase was for anonimity should the unthinkable happen in the future.

I didn't like everything I was hearing about my Verizon cell phone being able to keep track of my whereabouts and pinpointing my location when TSHTF. Also, I was experiencing some strange activity with my old cell phone account (strange messages, strange third party "noises" when talking to individuals about certain topics, etc.)

However, something strange happened yesterday. I received a text message from the TRAC Phone company. The message said "We would like to honor your Birthday by giving you a gift of 30 additional minutes when you add any minutes of 120 or more before 11/30. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!"

Cash for the phone, cash for the minutes, none of my personal information attributed to this phone...HOW IN THE HELL DID THEY KNOW IT WAS MY BIRTHDAY!?!

Do you not realize TracFone is an MVNO of Verizon?

As well as Straight Talk and PagePlus. I'm sure there are others that I'm not as familiar with.

Use Net10 instead. Strictly cash. No online setup.

I wonder "they" can download our address book info and then cross-reference it to people we know who are trackable and thus figure out who we are and then 'tag' our number for tracking.

Inquiring minds want to know.

Man, that would be a lot of work to find out that I told my husband to pick up bread and toilet paper on his way home.

When I bought it for cash, I did talk with an operator to register it. She asked some personal questions and I refused to answer them. I did ONLY give her my zip code for where it would be in use BUT THAT IS ALL! Then I simply put the minutes in and started using it. There is NO WAY I would have given them anything personal about myself, MUCH LESS MY BIRTHDAY!

VERY STRANGE!

And how come I only got 30 extra birthday minutes and not 60 like the other guy? I will have to ask the nazis about this one!

Hi op.
Did you give any personal details to anyone via chat, text or use your cell for web access at any time?. I'm only thinking that bcos you refused to give any details when registering the cell company may have flagged your number for data mining, incase your up to "no good"

Trac phone has a special chip in it that reads your thoughts. Be sure the tin foil hat is secure BEFORE dialing.

I don't text on this phone because it takes up minutes. I don't have it linked to my internet at home...NOTHING I TELL YOU! Seeing that text yesterday was straight out of a scene from the Twilight Zone! I would not have been MORE surprised if my coffeepot greeted me this morning by name!

Personal responsibility - try it sometime. Quit blaming others for your bad choices. Consequences happen.

Your cell phone IS your RFID chip. Come on people THINK. And just so you know your calls and txt and EVERY computer key you press IS RECORDED. This has been a fact for at least ten years.

Does your trac phone have data? Did you use it to check email or FB?
