    I have the exact same problem. It happened after a PIN was entered incorrectly on my phone three times. I tried all sorts of things, including phoning my provider (Vodafone) and having them try various ways of unlocking it and searching on the internet for ways to fix it. I ended up having to get Vodafone to send me a new USIM card, which they did at no charge since I have my contract through them.



    If you can find someone who has the same network as you, you can at least try putting their USIM in your phone and if it works, that means the problem is with your USIM card and not your phone. The same goes for if you stick your USIM in someone else's phone on the same network -- If their handset then reads"invalid USIM card" then you know for sure it's the card.



    I don't know if it's a common problem with the LG Viewty, but I found lots of posts out there with people who had the exact same problem.

Wht does invalid usim mean on lg kp 500????


USIM is 3G only SIM card and is working ONLY with 3G enabled devices. LG Cookie isn't 3G device so it won't accept USIM.

Lg kf700 wont accept any sim cards,


Hi,

it sounds weird that it worked before with same sim card. Generally USIM locked message means phone is locked to network and you need to unlock it with network unlock code to remove USIM locked and use phone on different network.

Insert USIM


If you haven't already done so, try this: take out the SIM card, wipe it down with a dry, soft cloth, and reinstall it WHEN the phone asks for it.

Lg viewty not working with contract sim


inactive sim means the sim is disconnect or need to be activated so call your mobile service provider and have them assist you with the issue.
