Tracfone strikes deal with Vonage

If you’re not familiar with Vonage, it’s a service that provides unlimited local and long distance calling for a flat monthly rate. Think of it as the Cricket and MetroPCS of the landline world. Of course, people are dumping their landlines, so Vonage might need a little help from the cell phone industry. It appears they’ve found it from Tracfone parent America Movil. They inked a deal recently that will provide their customers with “unique offers” for Vonage’s unlimited landline calling plans. By “unique offers” I presume that means substantial discounts. There’s no word on when we will see these offers, but it shouldn’t be too long.

    When this product comes to be, and the special offers finally extend themselves to tracfone’s existing subscribers, will that include all affiliates of tracfone. I have an SVC phone for seniors, a very basic set up for real cheap – will I also be able to make use of the vonage offer? And am I right in understanding that this unlimited calling is only to other landlines, and not mobiles also?

    Yes, it should theoretically extend itself to your SVC phone, as your phone is basically a normal tracfone, with double minutes for life included with the handset. The only reason tracfone “double branded” the existing tracfone range, is create some awareness amongst seniors as to the senior orientated phone they have available. Or, at least that’s my theory about it.

    Interesting value added offering by Tracefone. Not sure why they did it though. The value that one receives just from using this phone should be enough. Also, who needs a landline when you have a good cell phone? Not me. I don’t get it. How does this help Tracefone?
