You can remove the smart chip and try charging the battery and wait for some minutes and reinsert it to the slot. If that doesn't help you can contact customer service at att.com/support to chat live with a customer representative.

The memory card might not have clicked into the slot , so remove and check the direction youhave inserted the micro sd card. Remove and push it to CLICK on to the latch , Now it mut be detected to open the files present.

I got my lg View from a friend and when i put a sim card in it says Insert Smartchip


Cut a small piece of cardboard or credit card plastic similar in shape to -- but just a bit smaller than -- the smart chip. Place the piece on top of the smart chip. Simultaneously slide both the smart chip and the piece of cardboard/plastic into the smart chip slot. Make certain you are inserting the smart chip with the proper end inserted first and with the contacts uncovered by the extra piece (On the LG Vu, the smart chip contacts will face down and the missing corner will be showing on the outside of the slot when the card is inserted properly.). If that doesn't do the trick -- see your cell phone provider and/or get a new phone.

Insert smartchip


You are placing the smart chip on top of the smart chip holder. It's a little metal square where the smart chip should go. Lift up the metal square and place the smart chip underneath. I had to go to my local AT&T dealer to figure this out.

Try using another SIM card from the same provider from a friend or associate. It could be your card is defective,not activated or expired.

Says insert smart chip


It is possible to put the sim card in backwards.  My daughter did and when we turned it around I no longer got the "smart chip" error message.

It did that for me too. But when I pushed it down gently and inserted it in, it worked for me.

My phone keeps saying insert smart chip


attempt to take the SIM card out and gently wipe it off (pay especial detail to the copper connectors on the under-side.) after that, give a gentle blow to the recieving area for the sim on the phone and place the sim back in the phone, power up, and hopefully this problem will be solved. this issue occurs often to myself and this seems to be a very simple solution.

I need to unlock my lg CU515


On the AT&T Network, to unlock the LG CU515, it’s pretty simple:
  • Put a non AT&T or Cingular SIM in the phone; the phone display: Invalid Smart Chip
  • Enter *#865625# then select option 1 and then again select 1 and enter your 16 digits code*
  • Device should say: Network Lock Deactivated
  • Phone may automatically reboot
*The 16 digit code can be obtained by calling AT&T Technical Support and given the representative the IMEI number. In exchange they will give you the Subsidy Unlock Code.

Perhaps the SIM card is corrupted, or somehow defective. The best you could do is bring it to the AT&T store and have them troubleshoot or replace it.
