Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

I suspect that if it (a Tracfone phone) is asking for email address, you should enter the email address that you originally registered for Tracfone service with.

And then after that you should enter, not the password ***** your Yahoo! mail account, but rather the password ***** your Tracfone account.

Try that.

When in doubt, also, calling Tracfone customer support cannot hurt much - though trying what I advised first is definitely in order, to do first... but if that fails to work, you can either let me know, or call Tracfone at

I see. Have you registered the new Tracfone to your Tracfone account first, though?
