Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Where did you obtain or buy the SIM card, please?

It may need activating.

Is the phone new? how about the SIM card?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I got it through Tracfone. I have been using it until today.
Customer: replied 7 months ago.
I have been using it for 5 days with out a problem.
Expert:  Russell H. replied 7 months ago.

OK, then.

Is it possible there is a problem with your account? try calling Tracfone about your account. Their number is

1(###) ###-####/p>

...and ask them for the status of your account, and your phone. The SIM card came with the phone, the SIM card is linked to your account, so this will get an inquiry made about the problem.

If they say, 'all is well', then ask them why your phone says Invalid SIM Card No Service.

But I have a feeling they will find something wrong to correct.

This happens now and then, once in a great many cases.

Let me know the results, please. Thanks.
