How to Forward a Tracfone

By Mandy Slake

Unlike most cellular carriers, TracFone only offers call forwarding on certain handsets, and the option must be enabled through the handset menu. TracFone users with Nokia or Motorola handsets can forward their calls to another number. When the call comes in, instead of ringing the phone, the call can be forwarded to voicemail, or a number the user has pre-selected.
