I just had this problem for about 3 days and finally called Safelink.The entire thing was automated and it took about 10 minutes.

I had to enter a bunch of codes into the phone and that was it. It is fixed now.

I received 500 minutes and I am pretty sure that I normally only get 250.No idea what's up with that, but if you're having this problem just call the number.

Its August 2014....still have the same issue. Never get my minutes, 555 does not work. Constantly disconnected when speaking to customer Svc.


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.

This method works just used it thanks :grin

Worked for me also. Thanks!


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.
