What's most cost effective for Trac Fone is not always what's best for you as the end user.

If you have a Trac Fone, NET10 or Straight Talk phone that works well see below for how to find out what network it uses.

Ask friends with prepaid phones what network they are using and how well it works.

Look at the Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile prepaid coverage maps to see each carrier's native coverage area (ignore areas labeled as "roaming" or "partner").

Once you know what home network you want, here's how to determine which phones work on that network.

Trac Fone and its sister brands NET10, Straight Talk, do not have their own networks.

They're Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNOs) that buy wholesale minutes, texts and data from AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon and over a dozen smaller regional networks.

Straight Talk and Net10 also have smartphones that run on the Sprint, Verizon and AT&T networks.Each phone has a home network that's either AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint or Verizon.Trac Fone, Straight Talk and NET10 phones will favor their home network and refuse to roam in an area where the home network claims to have coverage.So if you have a phone whose home network is T-Mobile and you are in an area where T-Mobile has spotty coverage, the phone will refuse to roam on AT&T even if AT&T has a better signal. Which network a given Trac Fone, NET10 or Straight Talk phone is homed on depends on the market it's sold in.Trac Fone companies seem to prefer selling T-Mobile or Sprint homed phones, followed by Verizon with AT&T as a last resort.I suspect this is because they get the best deals from T-Mobile Sprint and the worst from AT&T.
