    My phone said the same thing. The only way to get it off is to call your service provider and have them send you a new sim card.

I need a puk code number for my LG500 tracfone

These directions are for an AT and T phone, but other than that, are the same for any carrier. A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from your phone carrier to unlock your SIM card. You can obtain your phone's PUK code from your carrier in one of these ways: Log in to Your Use a Technical Support Chat Contact your carriers Customer Care Get Your Phone's PUK Code Online Go to the Phone/Device page. From the My Phone/Device screen, select the Unblock SIM Card link under the My Make & Model heading. The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code and will give you instructions for unblocking your SIM Card. Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code. Note: If you enter the wrong PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator

My tracfone says SIM BLOCKED how do i fix that?

Is it the SIM Card that came with that Tracfone? Becuase Tracfone's only work with the Sim Card they came with, not any other SIM Card. If it is, I'm not really sure how to fix it, except that you should try removing the SIM Card (located under or around the battery) and putting it back in again. Otherwise, you can contact Tracfone at their website, Hope this helps! :)

Fone says invalid sim

*#06# in all phones gives you the IMEI number. It should be noted and stored in a safe place. You may require it one day when your phone is not working. If the SIM is invalid then clead the golden side of it with a soft cloth and also the counter part on the phone. It could be dirt that is causing the phone to recognise the SIM. If that does not work then try the SIM in a different phone. May be the SIM is bad. Does not take very long for electronics to go bad. And that too without warning. If the SIM is bad then the service provider shud be contacted for a new SIM with same number.

Can this be done

As long as the second phone is on the same network, or an unlocked phone, it should't be a problem. At worst you will get some sort of "invalid sim" error message after you install it.

Invalid Sim

If your phone is locked to your original sim card, you will not be able to use any other. contact your provider and see if it is in fact locked. Many phone providers lock their phones.
