How Do I Change My TracFone Number? By David Tate eHow Contributor 7069c68a-bfe6-4b51-9e34-fafb91235bff.small.jpg David Tate Follow If you don't want to pay a monthly fee or be strapped into a two-year contract to use a cell phone, TracFone is one of the best ways to go. You can purchase minutes as you need them and TracFone has agreements with many popular cell phone companies to use their towers to provide coverage. What if you want to change your TracFone number because you've moved or for another reason? This can be done by following a few simple steps.

Promoted by Changing your TracFone number
  • Go to your phone's prepaid menu. Write down your phone's serial number, your current telephone number and your SIM card number.
  • Call the TracFone customer support line. Their phone number is (800) 867-7183. You do not need to call from your TracFone.
  • Navigate through the menus to get to technical support. First, you will choose either "1" or "2" to get directions in English or Spanish, respectively. Then you choose "1" for Tracfone, and "4" for technical support. You may have to wait a little while to speak to someone.
  • Give the technical support representative your information. They will ask for your phone's serial number, current telephone number, your new zipcode and your SIM card number. You will be instructed to leave your TracFone turned on for a while.
  • Check your phone's prepaid menu to make sure your new telephone number has been pushed to your phone correctly. If not, proceed to Section 2.

Iv got my old orange simcard and would like to active it?


Hi, if the sim card has been unactive for 3 months or more then that sim card is blocked and can no longer be used in any phone, if how ever you registered your details with that phone number from that sim card then what you can do is got a new sim card and contact orange and get them to give you your old number back, how ever their may be a problem with this if the number has been unactive for 3 months then it could have been given to someone else,
your best option would be to contact orange and ask them to see if the number is still not in use and if you can activate it again on a new sim card.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution, thanks

I bought a prepaid phone card for my lg cookie and it will not let me add it i called at&t and they did something and made my phone not have a number and now it says i do not have a sims card too what...


if you are using a sim card from a prepaid phone just bought, and then add it to another att branded phone, it will not work. if you use the sim card in the new prepaid phone, it will work. att locks the sims from working in other phones for 3 months from the factory. i did the same thing with a prepaid phone and a Q9, put the sim in the q9 and it said, no service. put the sim in the prepaid phone, it worked fine. my suggestion is to talk nice ot the att store employee, and they will give you a new sim.

let me know if your phone is doing something different.

After Loading a new SIM Card along with ''Lifetime Prepaid'' from ''Airtel'', the Directory information has disappeared even though all telephone numbers were saved on the Phone.


The numbers are saved on the old SIM card. You can get sim card readers for your computer very cheap, and put the old numbers on the new card. It may be easier to just dial them in though.
