I have recharged the battery and it was working fine prior and now it is askin me to 'insert SIM'....when the SIM card is already there??

Sound like your sim card is faulty and needs to be replaced. Or you can try pulling out the battery and removing the sim card and leave them out for 2 hours and then reinsert the sim card and then the battery. I have the same phone and it is from Indonesia but works fine.

Keeps saying 'please insert sim'

Your SIM card is not being read anymore due to a number of reasons.
Try rubbing the SIM card with a clean smooth dry cloth and then insert it again.
If that doesnt work, your SIM might be damaged, take it to your network provider and they will replace it, hopefully with your same phone number.

Mobile phone TM 506 Sony Ericsson get wet

You have to leave it to dry in a warm - not hot - environment with everything taken out so the electronics have a chance to dry properly.

You leave it for around 24-48 hours then see if it works, if it doesn't then you need a new phone

My lg shine wont read my smartchip at all.

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.
