answer 1
You scroll to "Settings," "Sound," when you have highlighted "Meeting," hit the "Options" button ... arrow down to "Customize, push "Okay." Look for "Vibrate Only," highlight it, push "Okay." Make sure "Vibrate Only" is selected, select "Options," then arrow to "Save, hit the "Okay" button again. The menu should return to "Meeting." Then select "Back" until you are back to "Settings."

You have just put you phone on "Vibrate."

I set my dad's to vibrate earlier and don't have the phone in front of me now, but I think I remember the steps. Go to settings, sound, then click on Meeting - scroll to vibrate only, then hit OK. When you want the ringer back on, just go back into sound and click on General and reactivate that.

Small white light on top means it is charging.
When fully charged the bars are white. There are three of them.
As the phone discharges you will see two bars then one. Time to recharge.

The light means it is charging. When it goes out it's done. I just leave the phones in the charger stands until we go out. Works very much like an old cordless house phone.

Go to www.tracfone.com and click Support, then choose phones. This model is listed there.

But I don't think the manual is adequate for voicemail options, actually it's useless.

When he dials in for the first time he chooses the language - which can be changed later - then he just follows the prompts to complete voicemail activation. After that he just needs to listen to the options and menus.

If you want to help him you watch this video that demonstrate how to setup on Tracfone, it's universal:

answer 2
The #1 reason this is happening is, your Tracfone doesn't have airtime left to use or the Tracfone system does not recognize your phone's status.

Either way you need to talk to Tracfone support. I don't recommend calling them, they're not easy to reach and have heavy accents. I do recommend their online support forum at www.tracfoneforum.com - note that they're online 24 hours there and I have used it many times but you will need to be able to communicate details to them in writing, which they will "take offline" and handle privately thru private messages.
