I already purchased a StraightTalk phone for $100 and want to convert it to a TracFone plan since TracFone carries the exact same phone model.

I called TracFone and they acted like this is NOT possible and need to purchase a TracFone.

Is this true or has someone found a way to make this work ?

No. Tracfone uses specialized firmware in their phones. You cannot port a phone to Tracfone like you can to Straighttalk, Net 10, or vice versa.
