Does it only mean that I need to register the phone under my name?

you need to apply for a $200 tax stamp

you can't have both a phone and a sim card before you get your stamp...

can't I activate it? I have a phone card as a gift. It lists over 100 minutes still on the phone, but the date expired.

You may be able to activate it, or you may need a new SIM card. SIM card is a little interchangable identification device, probably under the battery in the back of the phone. Call tracfone and see if they can activate it as is, if not, see if they'll send you a new SIM. No need to throw the phone away.

Tracfone has some weird policies. If you don't add minutes often enough, you lose what you have.

How to get it activated, I don't know. The phone itself is still good, but I think you need to contact Tracfone directly, especially if you have a card with minutes specifically for a Tracfone.

I wouldn't trash it, either put it in a car for emergency 911 calls, or give it to charity.

I'm pretty sure you can use that phone and that card.

Go to their website and/or call them if you're confused.

I can guarantee you'll be a lot more confused after that call...

Their "customer service" center is somewhere in India - The "technicians" are courteous, but generally useless.

They have a call center somewhere in South/Central America too. I don't know which one was harder for me to understand.
