transferring contacts and old number to new tracfone

I just got a new tracfone to replace and old one.  Has anyone actually used Transfer Wizard to transfer info?  How does it work?  I am not tech savy!

@honeybuns.  Yes, there's another active thread here that describes the process.  It works like a charm.  Transferring service is also very simple.  Ill try to find it for you.

@honeybuns  Here you go.  Tracfones has really simplified this process.

Where does one get the Transfer Wizard app?  I would like to transfer my contacts from previous LG tracfone to the Stylo.

 

I looked on the Play Store, but confused by the choices since several seemed to be phone company specific.

 

Also does anyone know if I can just move my memory card to the new phone with resetting/initializing anything?  I think I read a review somewhere that someone did that successfully, but don't know where I read it.

I just did it today!  You can text WIZARD to 611611 and the app comes up or google Tracfone transfer wizard.  It will walk you through.  Took me about 10-15 minutes.  Easier than I thought it would be.

A Verizon tech helped me.  We copied the contacts from my old flip phone to the Verizon Cloud, and from there, downloaded them to Contacts on my new LG phone.  It didn't take five minutes.
