Yes, that is all you will need to do. You will need to remove the SIM card from the white plastic card. Remove the back cover of the phone and the battery. Insert the SIM card with the gold area down and beveled corner towards the beveled edge.
When your TracFone is turned on you will receive the message "SIM card registered/activated. If you see the message 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. The programming information is forwarded by TracFone to the local wireless carrier to Activate your phone.Please call TracFone's Customer Care Center at 1-***-***-**** if it is not Activated.
