My lg tracfone reads unregistered sim.It has always worked until I was not using it for about a wk.


Tracfone deletes SIM cards and the associated phone number from their registration database if the available airtime minutes goes to zero. Try buying minutes for the phone. (If you wait too long (~2 months), Tracfone may not be able to re-register the SIM card. In that case, you'll need a new SIM card.)

Do you remember when your minutes were due to expire? (Remember Tracfone doesn't do roll-overs of minutes.)

I hope this helps.

I cannot register the handsets to the new base station I had an 8100-2 base that quit working. I bought a new 8100-1 base. Can I change the MAC ID on the phones so they will accept the new base station?


Hi,

If you cannot register the handset then here are some possible causes and solutions for them.

Cause 1:The handset and the base station were not prepared for registration.
Solution: Unplug and then plug in the power adapter.

Cause2:The handset or the base station has not been entered into registration mode.
Solution: See User Manual for correct registration of base station and handset.

Cause3:The base station is registered full.
Solution: Press [Page Key] on the base station to page the registered handsets, then perform the deregistration operation. Finally, register the handset you want to use.

Here is few more of additional info. if you want:

Register the Handset to the Base Step 1:
Place the accessory handset in the base station of the system. For some simple systems this may be all you need to do to register the new handset. If so, the LCD screen will read "Registration Complete."
Step 2:
Press the "menu" button on the base station, scroll down to "register handset" and press "ok."
Step 3:
Press and hold either "#" or "OK" (depending on the brand) on your handset until your hear the indicator tone. At this time the LCD should confirm the handset is registered.
Reset Handsets with the Base Step 1:
Clear the registration information from the base if you want to register your handset to a new base.
Step 2:
Hold [] and [#] down on the base for a minimum of 5 seconds or until the "System Reset" menu appears.
Step 3:
Choose the "deregister" option from the menu and scroll down to the handset you wish to remove.
Step 4:
Press "OK" to de-register the correct handset. Press "yes" when you are asked if you are sure, and wait for the confirmation tone.
Reset Handsets without the Base Step 1:
Hold [] and [#] down on the phone for a minimum of 5 seconds until the "System Reset" menu appears.
Step 2:
Choose the "base unavailable" menu, select "yes" and press the "OK" button.


Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution.

SIM card registration failed


Hi,
There are several reasons that can cause this problem.
Sim card registration failed means it has been locked out by the service provider. Did you buy the phone NEW? If so take it back they will exchange it.If you bought it used, it has been reported lost or stolen before they sold it to you.
It is also possible that the "registration failed" message could be caused by a faulty SIM card not being correctly read by the phone.

Check if that SIM works in another phone (either an unlocked phone, or one that is on the same network), and also try another SIM in your phone - this would tell you whether the SIM or the phone is at fault in your case. A faulty SIM is an issue for your operator, a faulty phone would have to be repaired at a service point.

In countries like India, you need to register your SIM card. The cell phone company blocks the SIM if they don't receive the application within few weeks of activating the phone. Please check if this is case.
Take out the SIM and test it with a different phone, if the phone fails to read the SIM, get the SIM replaced. Few days ago this worked for a friend with a brand new Nokia handset here in Lagos, Nigeria.

I m using an operator's SIM for 3 years. Few days ago, i bought a another operator's SIM. But I can't use this SIM with my handset. It displays a roaming sign on the screen. When i make to this number it...


It seems that your new operator SIM card doesn't nave coverage at your area, that's why it's showing roaming because the SIM is using (registered) a host network, maybe if you make a manual search of the new SIM operator network, you could register it at its own network, if it's not found, you should report this issue to its customer service.

I can't register my 02 sim card it always says '' SIM card registration failed''


That means that your SIM card is permanently disconnected. If your SIM card is prepaid, you may have to buy a new one. If your SIM is postpaid, please call your mobile service provider to report the issue so they can reactivate your SIM.

I get an opening message: "SIM card registration failed" - what does this mean? then i can't receive nor send any msgs.


There are 3 causes of Sim Card Registration Failed, when you first turn on the phone, the sim card attempts to connect to the network if it can not do this it gives a message like Sim Card Registration failed.

1, The sim card is turned off, if you have had the sim card for a while and it hasnt been used they will turn it off, you need to contact them from another phone to get it turned on or get a new sim card.

2, The phone has a hardware reception problem, when it attempts to register itself with the network it can not... There is a reception problem and it requires repairs, this isnt really an easy diy job on this handset.

3, The phone is blocked, i.e reported lost or stolen. Some networks when a phone is reported will allow it to get reception but will not let it make calls, however other networks will not give it reception at all and hence you get a Sim Card Registration failed message.

I hope this helps, these are the causes of the message
