How to Add a Name to a TracFone Telephone Number

By Rosa Lyn

The number of cell phone users who are selecting a prepaid service is growing. While most people find having access to a cell phone convenient, not everyone needs the stress of a monthly bill. TracFone is a well-known prepaid cellular company, and phones are sold at many department stores throughout the country, including Walmart. When you first register a TracFone, you associate a name, email address and nickname with each phone number. It's possible to change this information after a phone is registered. Begin this process by navigating to the main TracFone website.
