If you see models ending in VL, Tracfone believes a Verizon network phone should activate in your zip.
If you see only a few phones, likely ending in BL or BG, Tracfone considers Verizon not viable in your zip.
Hurray, it worked! The unlocking went smoothly, no glitches. The 30-dollar Moto is unlocked, thanks to the encouragement from friends here! It's sitting idle without a carrier on it, but hey, it's not locked to Tracfone any more , that's the important part, right!
Tracfone is pretty used to low-usage lines. They expect you to use it within any 6 month period to keep it live.
No, no need to add anything.
Did you end up with the Moto E5? When you originally started this thread, I had read some reports that Tracfone Verizon-network devices weren't likely to be eligible to use on the Verizon network even after unlocking, as the IMEI's weren't properly whitelisted with Verizon.
I have a Tracfone E5 in use now-- mine isn't unlockable yet, but I have checked the IMEI for theoretical Verizon activation, and Verizon says the phone will work if it's unlocked.
