    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 bought a new trac fone, and am trying to transfer things from my old phone. When I turn on the new phone there is a lock on it. I can't find the way to put in the SIM card number. I can't unlock the phone.
I tried pushing the lock, and the space bar. I think it's the space bar. The lock is on the same key.
One of the messages states the sim card is invalid. I did not put in a sim card number, only a serial number. How do I unlock it.

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.
