Insert sim nokia 2700c-2


Always switch the device off and disconnect the charger before removing the battery.
The SIM card and its contacts can be easily damaged by scratches or bending, so be
careful when handling, inserting, or removing the card.
1. Press and slide the back cover towards the bottom of the phone, and remove it (1).
2. Remove the battery (2).
3. Insert the SIM card into the holder with the contact surface facing down (3).
4. Insert the battery (4), and replace the back cover (5).

Remove the SIM card

Press the release spring (1), and slide out the SIM card (2).

Instructions say slide the cover off with your thumb, but it won't budge at all!!!!

Hi, i take it you have got a new phone and your trying to get the back off to get to the battery and sim card, it will slide off just make sure your sliding it the right way, they are very stiff when new but trust me it will come off dont worry about breaking it because it wont break, try pushing down on it as your pushing it off.

if you cup your hands together so that your holding the phone and your 2 thumbs are on top of the phone on the part that needs to slide off, hold the phone so your sliding the back cover away from you then using both your thumbs push down and slide it off, it will come off their just a bit stiff the first few times, pushing down on it help release it from the clips.

have you thumbs so their half way up the back of the phone in the middle then push down quite hard and slide your thumbs so your pushing the case off away from you, it will go its just a bit stiff the first few times,

if you have any problems let me know make and model and ill double check it is suppose to slide off and in which way it slides off

let me know then i can assist you further ok

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

Power shuts down and you cant turn the phone back on without removeing the batt then replaceing it. I have 2 new phone and it is happening to both.

i would contact your warranty center if you have had the phone less than a yr .. if it is a refurbished device warranty only covers through att for 90 days att warranty is 1-800-801-1101

Screen blank and slide lose

Hello meashaw...
Looks like your phone's flex is damaged. You bring it to LG's authorized service center and they will fix/replace its flex for free if it's still covered by a warranty. That's what I did for my slide phone also (other brand).

My screen on my lg kg800 is scratched how can i replace it with a new one

is the actual screen inside scratched or is the outer phone housing screen cover scratched? There is a difference. The actual LCD screen is inside the phone housing and is protected by the phones housing. If the actual LCD screen somehow was scratched it can be replaced very easily and usually inexpensively. Try Ebay for the LCD. If the phones outer clear housing is scratched you can also replace the housing either by purchasing the same phone used and using its housing or some "dummy" phones can be used for there housings also. If the scratch is not really bad I have used rubbing compound to remove fine scratches, good luck!

Ok after a bit of research I understand that the Lg Prada phone uses a Capacitive touchscreen technology. Wiki this and you will find that the plastic strip attached to the underneath of the front cover of the phone (with its circuit ribbon that connects to the main circuit board of the phone) has a sticky substance holding it air tight to the underside of the front cover. This sticky substance is Indium Tin Oxide (ITO) and conducts a continuous electrical current accross to the sensor. So if you have bought a new cover from ebay etc like I have and replaced the new cover with the old scratched one, you need to get yourself some ITO sputtered onto the screen to make its capacitive touchscreen technology work again.... hope this is a more technical answer than some of the idiots that post unhelpful solutions to questions(solution 1!).

Slide the phone open, looking at the back of the front slide, use a credit card or similar stiff plastic to unlock clips (2 clips at top sides, two clips lower sides)
