Android phones campatible with Safelink
« on: April 24, 2018, 06:08:12 AM »
I have been approved for free minutes from Safelink and they did send me a free phone; however, I'm disabled and need my cell phone to have GPS because I've just moved and get lost without it. I have been on the computer for days, have bought a phone that didn't tell me it was not compatible with Safelink until I received it.
Anyway, does any one know of a not-too-expensive Android phone that is compatible with Safelink?

I think the best source for that information is Safelink customer service. They either have a list of recommended phones or can tell you the requirements for your new phone, so you can take those into account.
Why wasn't it compatible?

If you don't know no more than "it has to be compatible with Safelink" and you don't know what that means and you can't even communicate effectively with their customer service, searching on the Internet is certainly not the right way for you to buy a phone.

Im hoping you found a compatible phone by now but just incase anyone else needs this info...you can go buy any Tracphone , the Dollar stores and Walmart carries them and then all you need to do is call Safelink and transfer your safelink account to any Tracfone. Im a Safelink street team agent and thats what alot of my customers end up doing because its not really easy texting on these small Safe link phones!

All Straight Talk phones are compatible with Safelink...I buy one every year. You don't need a sim card either, just have them switch your service to your new phone.

I appreciate your response to my question. I have spoken with a CSR at Safelink, who assured me that I could "upgrade" my phone. This was in the beginning, when I was REALLY stupid and believed him. You see, I knew the free phone they were sending me wouldn't do what I needed so I contacted the CSR to get a jump on things before I received the phone. I have since been all over the internet looking for one of those "upgrade phones" to use with Safelink. Some of them are up front and say right on their ad that the phone is not compatible with Safelink. That's fine, it's the ones that don't say that...until you buy it and read the fine, gray print in the manual, that you cannot use this phone with any other carrier than WHOMEVER THEY ARE that really tick me off. Can you tell?
