Network locked SIM card inserted". I called and talked to Tracfone support last night and they said the only fix is to get a new SIM card. I tried taking the card and battery out numerous times to fix problem to no avail. They said they would send one out a new SIM card for each phone asap.
My question is -- why would both SIM cards fail at the same time and is there another way to reactivate the current cards without waiting multiple days for the new cards to arrive which I am beginning to wonder if that will solve the problem.
It just does not make sense to me both cards failing within minutes of each other.
Any suggestions are appreciated.




I am currently having the same problem how can I get it activated.

My Tracfone stopped working on Tuesday. The message was an invalid sims card. My son trying to get my phone to work. I went to Walmart and bought a new phone. I went online to transfer my account but it would not let me. I had just put a new phone card in. I lost 1700 text, 5.60 date, 5481 minutes. Customer service representative Reymark said that he didn't care if I went to a new provider. I didn't do anything to my phone, it just stopped working. Customer service department was horrible.

After I posted on this forum, all of my 1700 prepaid text messages disappeared off of my account.

Hi, I'm Jose, I bought a second-hand Tracfone equipment in Los Angeles, California, and I'm in Mexico, and they told me that this was already unlocked for other telephone companies and I have chatted to Tracfone and they tell me if it is unlocked, but I put another sim and it tells me sim invalid and I can not activate it I need help since I call from Mexico and it says service is not available and I went to apple support and they ask me for a letter from tracfone saying that it is released so that they reflect it in their systems. :cry:
