The same thing happened to me. Take the battery and SIM card out of the phone, then simply put them back in and turn the phone back on. Fixed the problem for me.

    I experienced the same problem and went to the store where I purchased the phone (Samsung phone) and they simply removed the battery and put it back in the phone. The said it is like rebooting your computer. Solved the problem immediately.

Hi, it means you have a weak signal. That's why sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

Activate tracfone


Your Tracfone could be defective. You will have to convince Tracfone that you need a replacement.

My TRACFONE Lg 800G keeps saying emergency call only when I have full service


This problem shouldn't really have anything to do with the signal your getting. the emergency calls only mode is intended for prepaid phones without minutes or contract phones that are deactivated.
That being said, there have been a lot of problems with the 800g sending certain types of data over networks, since your prepaid phone is constantly sending data regaurding your prepaid time, it may just be that the data isn't being sent or recieved properly thus either your phone or the network thinks you are out of time. try taking out your sim card see if you can tell if it is an ATT sim or a T mobile sim, if it's ATT its a pretty good possibility that that is your problem. Either way if your getting the emergency calls only screen and you've got plenty of minuts on your phone I would contact tracfone and tell them what's going on.
and a little FYI: they may try blaming it on your cell number, if you've had the same number for a long time and havent had any problems, dont let them bully you into getting a new number, chances are it wouldn't help anyway

I bought a unlock code for my lg gt365 neon and i put a tracfone sim card in it and it says emergency calls only how do i fix it so i can use a tracfone sim card.


First you need to unlock your phone before you put tracfone sim card on that phone. Make sure you have appropriate LG neon GT365 unlock code example : if your old sim card using t-mobile you must use t-mobile unlock code for your phone not tracfone. You can get lg unlock code from online seller with lower price and quick turnaround.
