Check here for the device compatibility with network:

It looks like GSM should be fine: https://www.safelinkwireless.com/Enrollment/Safelink/en/NewPublic/faq.html

SafeLink probably locks their SIMs. Won't work in any other phone.

From a google search and reading on a few other phone forums. It sounds like other people had swapped safelink sims with success. I guess the main question now is those phones that i listed what do u guys think.

Send me a PM, I have a Tracfone flip phone I can send you, new in box.

A one year card is $100, come with 400 minutes talk time.

Look on Retail Me Not dot com for free minutes, (promo codes), which add around 400 more, so you get 800...

My Dad has used one for years, great if you donít use it much...
