After buying a motorola v170 and it not working AT ALL, tracfone sent me a new one.
this one works better (i can send & recieve calls now) but it won't let me send or recieve text messages.
anyone know why?
Did u try calling you're cellphone company to know if they blocked the text messages ?
If you're text messages are not block, can you tell me more on what happens, what error/messages you get or simply what you do

for sending text messages :
1. call to your network operator customer care 2. request the message center number... 3.note it down 4. go to message settings>message center number 5. insert the number which is noted by you and save it
this solves your messaging problem ... Good luck
Ah, I am a former tracfone customer, and the v170 phone was my first model. :) . Unfortunately no, because all of tracfone's phone models use a different sim card, even if you attempted to replace the sim card with an identical phone it would not work, the phone simply reads, UNREGISTERED SIM CARD. Its tracfone's way of making money, so unfortunately you'll have to put in your contacts all by hand :( which is a major pain in the rear.
