Re: Trac Phone SIM Not Working

Trac Phone SIMS are connected to the phone they come with. You can't swap them into other phones. At least that's what I've been told. I've never tried it.

trac phones minutes arent tied to the SIM.. the SIM is only to hold contact for swapping phones out.. minutes for trac for are tied to the phone number.. transfer the number, transfers the minutes.. poping the SIM into a brand new trac phone with a new number, just gives you contacts..

international SIM cards im pretty sure are the only thing that works for Sprint and the whole SIM unlock situation.. i dont think it can be a domestic card... (feel free to correct me here, im not SIM unlocked as its not needed by me)..

that help as far as the trac phone SIM to allowing you to go GSM atleast??

You would need to unlock the phone for it to work. This is from the first sticky in the Howard Forums Tracfone forum...

PHONE UNLOCKING:
This forum has asked that no questions be asked about putting TF/N10 phones on other forums so I will sum it up with the basics.

Basically America Movil has made their phones very hard to unlock or flash to other networks to prevent people called phone traffickers from easily buying up tons of their cheap retail phones , unlocking/flashing them to another network or system and reselling them overseas. This cuts into America Movil profits severely. They have launched a very successful campaign at suing such people and usually winning. They also have evolved the security on their phones to be so difficult to crack that it is beyond the reach of most ordinary users and even the average phone unlocker/flasher probably.

TF/N10 phones have sim unlock apps on them. LEAVE THEM ALONE.
Even if you could unlock a TF/N10 gsm sim phone, it would only be a half way unlock. You would have to FLASH or reprogram the airtank built in. That would make them usable with other sims, but will render them useless on the TF/N10 network.
As for ST phones, they are still new and it has been known that the first generation models (All the Motorolas) can be used with minor modification on the Page Plus system which shares the same Verizon prepaid network under it that Straight Talk does. Whether they will modify/increase the security levels in future ST phones remains to be seen as Tracfones too were at one time easily unlockable when they first launched. Whether the newest ST models (Samsungs and LGs can be used on Page Plus or other networks is still unknown at this time. That is more of a question to be answered in the Page Plus technical forums then here).
