Phone says itís ineligible to unlock. Itís a phone from a while back. Why would that be?
If you're referring to "reconditioned" phones, what may have happened was that it was originally purchased with a plan (and officially activated but never actually used), before the rules changed in 2021, and then returned before being sold to you as reconditioned, so you'd need 12 months of actual service to unlock as opposed to simply activating and waiting 60 days. This is what Tracfone CS once claimed to me, no idea if it fully makes sense or if it's true.

Trying to unlock a phone and when I put in the S/N I get "The information entered is invalid. Please verify it and try again.". I double checked the info a bunch of times. Has anyone experienced this?

I can't unlock it by putting in the phone number because the phone doesn't have a sim currently.

Transfer the sim to that phone to get it unlocked?

We apologize. Your device is not eligible for our Unlocking Program.
Super weird because the phone was activated about 2.5 years ago (and in use until 1.5 months ago)

If you want it unlocked. You'll need a sim that was active for at least 60 days and at one point 60 days ago you stuck it in this phone.
  Tracfone or its sister companies.

Don't listen to that. Call and speak to a human.

Text 611-611 the word "Unlock"
 
What does it tell you?

Call and click for the Spanish line. And or ask for a supervisor.  Don't waste your time with front line reps. Though you may be lucky.

 Don't mention you took the sim card out and it's not being used in this phone. For all practical purposes when you call or chat the aim is in the phone you want to have unlocked.

 Can't find the post off hand. But it was posted somewhere what's the best way to register multiple phone with one sim to be eligible for them all to get unlocked.

I've unlocked about 5+ phones.
 I would say at least 3 showed ineligible, but a phone call or two dod the trick. Dont be upset if the rep tells you no way we can do it.
 Don't waste your time. Hang up and huca..

Just tested the tracfone LG Classic with hello mobile, outgoing calls took about 38 seconds to start ringing, I changed network to only use 2G and now it only takes around 7 seconds to start ringing.
Curios if it actually worked for anyone on the lg classic?
 Tried myself and it did the same as you mentioned.
 What's my next best bet to use for this service?

 Wondering if the UN220 would work.

I just took the sim out of a phone that was activated less than 60 days ago. I wonder if that could be the issue, if somewhere the switch didn't register yet

Very possible. Could have caused the error to show bot eligible.
 But simple, my battery died so swapped ph9nes.
   You don't really need excuses, but just in case.

Yes Tmobile worked for the most part. While jello mobile who uses tmobile did not work.
 Though I'm wondering if the UN220 will work properly on hello mobile while tmobile doesn't work well.

Any way to unlock a LG Classic currently on Wing? When I activated it there was no issue bringing a Tracfone locked phone to Wing. Now Wing tells me that they can't unlock it, as I didn't buy it from them. I tried the Tracfone Unlock site, and it didn't work there either.

What makes you think it's still locked? And what's the error when trying with the Tracfone unlock site?

I assume it is locked as I never unlocked it. As far as I know (correct me if I am wrong), it doesn't get locked automatically.

The message I get is: "We apologize. Your device is not eligible for our Unlocking Program."

Wing obviously can't unlock something that was never theirs to begin with. A phone doesn't get locked to a company you use it with, the only way it's locked is by the company it came from.

Was it ever used "with Tracfone" for the required time to be eligible for unlocking?
