I want my tracfone activated.

Select "Activate Phone" from our website and follow the instructions to Activate your TracFone.
  • Why does my phone display "SIM card registration failed/Unregistered SIM" or "No Service"?
    When your TracFone is turned on you may receive the message "SIM card registration failed", "Unregistered SIM", or "No Service" because your phone has not yet been Activated. Please disregard this message, it will disappear once your phone is Active.

    I lost my phone for a month or so and just now got it back. when i turned it on i am receiving a unregistered SIM card warning. what can I do?

    The SIM card will need to be replaced. Contact your cellular service provider and request a new one.
    Note: Some Pay-As-You-Go type phones like Net 10 have the SIM card flashed when the phones operating system is first installed. As such, the SIM cannot be transferred to another (Net 10) phone - for example.

    If this is the case, you may be better off purchasing a new phone to keep from experiencing the headache of replacing a SIM in a Pay-As-You-Go phone with propriatory software.

    Whenever SIM is inserted in Handset it shows "UNRegistered SIM" & that SIM works on all other Mobiles.

    is it an unlocked phone? The "Unregistered SIM" message means that you're using a SIM card for which this phone is not intended. You will need to have the phone unlocked and it should work.

    If it is a new fone then Phones are not shipped activated. You should look in the box for activation instructions. Read and follow them.
    is that a prepaid sim then probably the sim has been deactivated...

    How do i register my net 10 sim it says unregistered sim also on another phone it says puk code is blocked contact your provider is there anything eles i can do besides that

    Your PUK code is blocked because you have entered wrong code more than 10 times and now you have to replace your sim card. This sim will not work now. Contact your network provider, they will issue you a new sim card.
