Tracfone network can deactivate a line if the line remains inactive for a long time. In some instances, it is the customer who may request for Tracfone to temporarily deactivate their line. Thankfully, you can reactivate your line anytime you want.
If Tracfone deactivated your line for being inactive, most times, you can reactivate the line by using the line. Make a call, send a text, or add airtime to the line.
If your line was deactivated for some other reason or you requested for the line to be deactivated, you have to take steps to reactivate the line.
There are several options available to reactivate a Tracfone line or number. First, you can reactivate your number by visiting a Tracfone store in your location.
The other options are to either complete the process online yourself or contact customer support.
This post explains these options in detail. At the end of this post, you should have your old Tracfone line active again.
How To Reactivate Tracfone Line Offline
