Question about Motorola Mobility TracFone w175 PayAsYouGo Cell Phone
Battery is fully charged. Full 6 signal bars are showing. Try to dial ANY number, and the message "! Emergency only" appears. Press and hold "1" for voice-mail, and "Check call restrictions 34" appears. 317 service days left. Over 1,000 minutes available.
I have a similar problem with my Samsung on Vodafone, but the "emergency calls only" error message. Solution is to re-boot it by power off and on. Problem appears irregularly, but functions OK once re-booted. If this solves your problem, then I assume that the other error messages are simply the sort of behaviour associated with computers hanging etc.

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

SOURCE: Call restriction
I have the same problem with my Motorola tracfone. After fooling with it for about one hour, I discovered that for some strange reason, if you turn the phone off. When you turn it back on, you have to wait about 8-10 minutes and then all calls go through with no -34 restriction.

I'm having the same problem too. Except this is a new phone, I just placed the battery in it yesterday and charged it for 5hrs as stated. I followed the instructions and nothing is happening either. I get the same error. I ialed the number with the 1-618 and the 618 and even witout the area code.. I'm puzzled. I have no landline/home phone this is my very first cell phone and can't call safelink.com ugh frustrating.
