I believe your phone is fine and all others experiancing this type of problem. This will typically occur after you have enter wrong codes. Even perhaps if you have taken the SIM chip out and attempted to try it in another phone, then put it back into your 1100. If you call Tracfone they will tell you that you need a new device as they told me. I refused that notion and simply tripped the device as I have done simularly with other devices for a long time. Dont take it to the shop first or reset to factory settings or get a new phone just yet. When the phone resets and turns on immediatly preform a manually shut-down of the phone. This should discontinue the phones cycle of turning on and off. Take the batt out and put it back in if you need to. Manually turn the phone back on and immediatlly toggle between pressing the volume keys the enter button and the clear button in sequence untill you can get to the menu, or just press the clear button. "Long end short" get to the main menu as quickly as allowed. This must all be done in a quickly performed sequence before the phone decides to reset again. Get into your menu, go to your prepaid option, go into code entry mode. Your safe!!! You should notice that when you make it into code entry mode the phone stops resetting. I attribute it to the idea that tracfone network aka (telecom) thinks that you have spent some more $$$ on their pre-paid mins. So the phone has stopped resetting once in the code entry mode. Wait a few minutes. Then exit out of code entry mode, and resume normal function. Your phone will have stopped random reset and work normal again as you successfully tripped the system!!! This is a system problem or some standard protocal the system runs!!! If a couple minutes in the code entry mode does not work. Try again just give it a little more time. Not sure for same on all phones in all areas-

How/where do I find my voice, text, data, airtime TRACFONE available time still available?


How do I check my minutes on my Tracfone?
    Look at the home screen of your TracFone device, your Airtime Balance Display is shown directly on the home screen of your cell phone. Navigate from any menu or application directly back to the home screen to see your updated balance. View the balance by going to "Menu." Click on "Prepaid" followed by "Airtime Info."

    Additionally, you can enter the following URL to check your balance: "https://www.tracfone.com/direct/CheckBalance?input_phone=1234567890" (replace 1234567890 with your phone number). You will get a text with your balance.

    And finally, some users are reporting the easiest way is to call *777*1# to get your airtime.

How many minutes do I have left?


From Your TracFone Step 1 Look at the home screen of your TracFone device, your Airtime Balance Display is shown directly on the home screen of your cell phone. Navigate from any menu or application directly back to the home screen to see your updated balance.
Step 2 View the balance by going to "Menu." Click on "Prepaid" followed by "Airtime Info." This menu will also show your current airtime balance and expiration date.

Step 3 Add additional airtime to your account by calling 1-800-867-7183, refilling the minutes online or by visiting a participating retailer (see Resources). Enter the PIN number on the back of your refill card to add additional minutes to your account.
From Your Computer Step 1 Check your minute balance by logging in to your account on the TracFone website. Once you are on the homepage, click on "My Account." You'll be prompted to enter your username and password. If you don't currently have a TracFone account, you can register your phone number by clicking on "Register."
Step 2 Find the minute balance of your account displayed in the middle of the "My Account" homepage.
Step 3 View the account expiration date on the "My Account" homepage (see Resources). Your balance expiration date varies depending on the amount of the airtime refill card.

Why is my service disabled, but I have minutes?


With TracFone, you not only need to have minutes, but also service time. Check your phone's display to see if your service time is up. (I have a Samsung TracFone and it tells the number of service days remaining, but my old Motorola showed an expiration date. Your Motorola model may show the date too.) You'll lose service if you don't add more time by the end of service date, even if you still have minutes. As long as you add some more airtime within a short time (I don't remember the exact number of days), you'll keep the same number.

If the phone shows you haven't reached the end of service date and you still have minutes left, there's some other problem that TracFone will need to look into. Their customer service number is 1-800-867-7183.

Hope this helps and that you're back in service soon. Thanks for using Fixya!

When was the last time you bought an airtime card? Becuase I have a Tracfone too, and you have to buy an airtime card every 90 days...so if you haven't bought one in 90 days then that's probably what's going on. You can buy it online from Treacfone.com, in stores, or directly from your phone. Hope this helps! :)

Nokia 1100 no net work


HI,
This happens,when we use our Nokia 1100 for a long time.When we put the phone in keypad locked mode,the cellphone cannot refresh it's state,but the signal comes to your phone.When we again take our phone and start working,it gets refreshed and shows signal.
The actual problem is,When we take our phone and start working and at that time also if the signal is not provided,we have to search it manually to get our home network.

Tracfone dies after adding time


Same problem. Working off of Reijose's suggestion (thanks) I had the charging plug in the wall and the phone. That at least stopped the buzzing. Then I started working combos of buttons, turning the phone off and on etc and finally it came back to life. Can't say it was any one combo, but I did press 666 and clear or stop enough times that I might have finally exorcised the demons of of this thing.
Serriously that was the combo of buttons I used, through just by chance more than anything, ha.
