4.if your screen displays a message,go down and press OK till you see CARD# or AIRTIME PIN.5.enter 555.then press OK.6.if you are prompted to use a promo code,press NO.you will receive your minutes shortly. well ok it doesn't take a rocket scientist to follow these directions!so off i go following steps1-6 and in about 5 minn my phone displays "system unavailable try later"it never works!! i call customer service and they tell me they already loaded the minn on my phone and thats not the case!!!! this has been going on for 3 months now.i qualify for this phone,im a single mom of a little girl with a disability,we need these minn!!!!!

Lately, this has been a monthly problem for the last 4 or 5 months. Then they have the nerve to question you like your lieing about you not getting your minutes for the month. I got so tired of safelink I called tracfone and got quicker and better results. After I wanted 20-28 minutes.

I'd had the same problem. I took the phone back off and battery out to get the Serial Number for customer service. Once I plugged the battery back in and turned on the phone I tried the "Add Airtime", Entered 555 for the pin, and hit "No" for the promo code. My minutes updated immediately.
Don't know if I only needed to turn the phone off or if taking the battery out was the key. But for anyone else reading this for help, I hope that it works for you.

Getting the minutes yourself NEVER works. You'll have to call their 1-800 number and talk to a representative. It will only take about 5 minutes once you actually get one on the phone, and then your phone will properly receive the minutes each month thereafter. I've been using mine for almost 3 years now, and never had a problem.

Hi Yttap,

First, you could try to call their 1-800 number and ask a technical support representative to re activate your phone, not renew it though. Or option number 2, ask for a replacement phone is option 1 does not work.
