thanks - I think T-Mobile is the source for Tracfone because it says my old phone number is already a T-Mobile number and is therefore not eligible to be transferred.
Can you point me in the right direction for data? I would love to be able to check emails if nothing else even when I don't have my MiFi with me.

also I wrote a blog on this whole experience - hopefully it helps someone...
