    It turned out to be a phone issu. I went to AT&T and they gave me a new one. I lost all of my 300 phone numbers.

    I have the exact same problem. My phone just randomly told me to "insert SmartChip". and I kept turning it off and back on but it said the same thing. The LG Shine has been giving me problems since day one.

I have an lg shine from AT&T and yesterday it would not accept my sim card from AT&T. how do i fix it or is it fixable, i have seen several ppl complain about this very problem my sim card works in...


If your phone displays the 'Insert correct simcard' then your phone is currently locked to particular network. You need to unlock to use it with other network.
There can be many ways to Unlock your phone. As far as i know unlocking by codes is the simple and safe way. I will suggest the website Unlock-zone.com which is doing good service and they were recommended highly in the cell phone forums.
I used them to unlock my cell phone. contacted them and within 30 mins i had my unlock code and my phone was unlocked.
Hope this helps.

Phone not working.. Asking for smartchip


Sounds to me like your sim card is bad. Try wiping it off and putting it back, but you will most likely need to go get a new sim card.

I turn on my LG Shine cell phone and no matter


Turn off the phone. Take the battery and Sim Card out. Make sure there is no dust or dirt of where the Sim Card goes. Blow air (from your mouth) of where the Sim Card goes. Sometimes rubbing a soft pencil eraser on the Sim Card contact points can help. Then place the Sim Card back in the phone. Make sure it is in the right position; copper contacts facing downward. Put the battery back in your phone. Turn it on, and see if the smartchip rejected goes away.

If not you may need to contact your Phone Provider’s Tech Support to troubleshoot and confirm that you may need a PUK reset code to register or you may need a new Sim Card, as they do fail from time to time.

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.
