Re: Sim Card

This is not a GMS type phone, it is a CDMA, which means no SIM card.

Well usually the SIM card is under the units Battery, so remove back of phone and remove battery, you should now se your SIM, held in place by a carrier. Simply slide out the SIM.. & replace correctly orientated into the new phone's SIM carrier. Always power ya unit OFF. B4 doing anything.

I have an LGL75C with new sim card and cannot switch apps from phone memory to sim card

Do you mean from internal memory to SD card?Some apps can not be moved to SD cards.Also if you replaced your sim card the apps are on the old card.You would have to backup your apps from the old sim card to the external SD card then re-install them.Some cell providers have online back up that you can use.Good luck.

My phone is saying "

Hi, the message you are getting is telling you 1 of 2 things, now its either telling you that the sim card in the phone has either not been registered or it has not been topped up within a set time so its now been cancelled but if how ever the sim card is one that has been used on a regular basis then the chances are the sim card reader in the phone is now faulty.

you could try the following
1 take the sim card out of the phone, switch the phone on then switch it off again, then put the sim card back in the phone making sure its in far enough and the right way round then switch it back on and see if anything has changed.
2, try your sim card in some one else phone and if it works in their phone then you no you have got a problem with your phone
3 try another sim card in your phone making sure the sim card is from the same network as the phone is locked to,
if you try using a sim card from the wrong network it will give you the message your getting now so make sure you have got a sim from the same provider the phone is locked to.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

please can you rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

I need the puk or sim unlock code for my samsung SGH-A177 i cant find it any where


When your phone asks you for a PUK code, it means your sim card is locked and to use your sim card, you have to unlock it.

The PUK code is the code that is on the sim card carrier.

When you purchased your sim card, it came in a pack that carried the sim cards carrier with the sim on it, then the user manual, check on the sim card carrier, the card that you broke the sim out of, it carries the sim card/ phone number, then a PUK code, mostly 8 digits, and varies according to the sim service provider and a bar code.

Enter the 8 digit code that is on the sim card carrier, that is the PUK code.

Take care and good luck

When I switch On my phone it says "Sim card not valid". And its not taking the Sim Card. But without the sim card its perfect. My IMEI is 359849016183862. Please help me...

Hi, what might be the possible cause of the problem is either the Sim card your using on the phone or the Sim tray where the Sim card is inserted in the phone.

You can use the Sim card in another phone to be sure the Sim card is working properly.

After that, if the Sim card works,That means that Sim tray is damaged and will need to be replaced.

Have a nice day.

Need help fixing this problem fast

If the wrong PUK code is entered 10 times, then the sim card becomes permanately locked and you will need a new sim card. You can either purchase a sim card from an AT&T store or an authorized reseller for around $25, or if you can find a prepaid GO phone for cheaper, you can use the sim card that came inside of that packaging. With the new sim card, you can contact AT&T customer care from another phone or visit your local AT&T store and switch the sim number on that line on the account from the old sim card to the new one.

LG Chocolate KG800 phone can not send or receive picture messages!!!!

i suggest that you get back in touch with vodaphone and inform them that you cannot recieve pictures as the phone must not be set up in the sim card to recieve them that is why it's telling you to go to their website to view them, insist it's not the phone because all it takes is a text sim update from vodaphone.
