Samsung Galaxy Centura Android Phone
The Samsung Galaxy Centura
The phone was officially launched on the home shopping channel, HSN.
Initial reviews showed confusion and frustration with activation and transferring of minutes from other Tracfones.
Plans for the new smartphone are different from previous Tracfone plans to accommodate the Smartphone aspects of the handset.
In most cases the Samsung Galaxy Centura comes with Tracfone's "Triple Minutes for Life" feature. This means when you purchase airtime cards your minutes will automatically triple. Plus, the new plan also offers the corresponding number of text messages and data.
For Example - If you purchase a 400 Minute Card, your account will reflect the following.
- 1,200 Minutes
- 1,200 Text Messages
- 1,200 MB of Data

Activating the phone seemed to work best online as opposed to calling Tracfone Customer Service.
This being the first Android Smartphone for Tracfone, there were some hiccups in the activation process. The problem seems to have gotten better.
The Samsung Galaxy Centura is a great entry level Smartphone that many Tracfone customers are happy to finally see. It is currently available on Amazon for $119.99
