Best Answer: Call restriction 56 means the number you're calling is an international one and you're barred from making international calls. If you call customer service, they can help you remove the restriction.
Did you make at least one call per month on the tracfone? If not this maybe one of the reasons the call is restricted. You may have to manually receive your minutes for the month by: Pressing the menu key, when the prepaid menu appears press select. Go to redeem airtime or add airtime. If your screen displays a message scroll down and press ok until you see Card# or Airtime Pin. Enter 555 then press enter. If it says promotional code select no. Make sure you keep your safe link phone on to receive your minutes and see if that fix the problem. If that doesn't work you may have to call safe link at 1-800-378-1684.

Some of the phones identified to have had this SMS issue are the LG290C, LG420G and Samsung T301G.

You can disable the browser key to avoid accidental activation. Go to Menu enter the last four digits of your phone number into the "Lock Code" screen, press "OK," choose #2-Restrictions, then #5-Data, and "Lock." The screen will display "Data is restricted."
it means that you have moved areas of where you initally activated the phone in (city, state) and your new area support a better technology or better carrer. main carriers t.f. use are vzw, at&t, t-mobile. most of the time GSM phones will display call restriction so u could get a cdma phone instead.
there is like 20% chance to fix it but all in all, u'll get either a new SIM card or phone of different technology.
