This is because ur new phone is not from the same company where u have t got ur SIM card. Your new phone and your SIM card's service providers are different. You will have to get this new phone unlocked which has a SIM lock.

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.

When you place a new or a existing SIM card from another phone provider into your mobile phone and it asks for a Security code then :-
This phone is locked to the original mobile phone provider. You need to contact this mobile provider to ask for the unlock code (security code) for this phone. You need to provide proof of ownership etc and the phone's unique IMEI number which is located inside the phone under the battery. They use this number to generate the unlock code for your phone.
They should provide you with instructions on how to enter this code into the phone.
Once you unlock the phone, then you can insert a new SIM card in this phone or sign up with another phone provider using this phone.

You could ring the phone provider and ask for the unlock security code because you are going overseas and wish to use your phone with a prepaid SIM card from another country. This maybe a free service.
The other way to get your phone unlock is to use a phone unlocking company on the Internet, they usually charge a couple of Dollars for their services. Use Google and search for "Security unlocking code” companies in your area.
