Step 1

Find out the TracFone's email address. Usually, the email address is the 10-digit phone number plus "@txt.att.net" (for example, "[email protected]"), but to be sure, have the TracFone owner send you an email first. The email address associated with the TracFone will display in the "From" line of your email.
