Default TracFone will not power up

I charged my wife's LG500G TracFone last night. Something I do every three weeks since she does not really use it. When I went to turn it on to check it out, it would not turn on. I upgraded my LG500G TracFone so I am not using it anymore. I switched batteries and charged hers up with my battery and still no go. I put her battery in my TracFone and charged it and it powered up.

I was wondering if I switched the SIM cards, would my old TracFone be registered as her TracFone so I don't have to buy a new TracFone?

My husband's phone powers on when you lift the top, but also has another switch that turns the phone totally on or off.

Thanks. I should have looked on the internet before I asked.

I will work with TracFone to see what I can do. Probably buy another LG500G.
