    I have a older tracfone.
    It is a flip phone. Alcatel.
    I need to figure out the model number.
    I need to replace the phone as the hinge is not working well.
    I need the double minute feature.
    I can't find it locally. I need to buy it online.
    I need it to be a flip.

    Where in the phone do I find what model number it is. ?
    It is not on the case. I can't seem to find the original paperwork.

    I don't need a android.
    I already have one. A tracfone, open face.

    You might want to look at another provider as well. Check out Ting, They are an MVNO on spring or t-mobile and have pay for what you use. $6/month plus tiers of minutes/txt and data. pay by the month no contract, Phones can be pretty cheap.

    We have a regular house phone and I try to use that as much as I can.
    My cell, I used to buy a $ 20 card and that would last me quite a spell. Now I buy a
    $ 30 or $ 40 card and get somewhere between 6 to 8 weeks.
    I like the cell because my egg customers can get ahold of me, instead of me playing
    phone tag with the house phone. My one friend texts me because she has poor
    service where she lives. Once I get back in the house, I use my email to her phone
    to write longer messages to her. Whatever I have to do to make it work :)
    Have had tracfone for a long time. It's been good for what I need it for.

    I did look at the TING site. It is interesting.

    Unless you need your phone to be "mobile" you may also look at using google voice, Free VOIP system. Has txt,voice capabilities YOu can port your existing number to google voice..
