Question about LG VX3100

1 Answer

Can i use a sim card from another phone in this?

I washed my other newer LG phone in the washer and it is toast. I opened the back of my old vx3100 to see if i could use the sim card from my newer phone in it. But there is no little slot for the sim card. Can the back be unscrewed and the sim card put in there somewhere? Or is this phone too ancient? I know nothing about the evolution of cell phones ,and don't know if these old phones use something other than sim cards. Should i just go buy a new phone? Thanks!

Re: can i use a sim card from another phone in this?

Once a wireless company goes sim card, they never go back! Unfortunately, your old phone is worthless and they cannot attach any sort of IMEI to an account. Sorry!

I bought a unlock code for my lg gt365 neon and i put a tracfone sim card in it and it says emergency calls only how do i fix it so i can use a tracfone sim card.

First you need to unlock your phone before you put tracfone sim card on that phone. Make sure you have appropriate LG neon GT365 unlock code example : if your old sim card using t-mobile you must use t-mobile unlock code for your phone not tracfone. You can get lg unlock code from online seller with lower price and quick turnaround.

I swapped the sim card for another att card momentarily and then put my sim card back in the phone. The phones number is now that of the other sim card. How do i reset the card/get my old number back?

Have you tried doing a hard reset with your sim card in the phone. With the phone on, pull the battery out and put it back in, then turn the phone on it it doesn't start automatically. It should pick up your info from the card. Let me know if this helps.

I changed sim card, now they both display ''Insert SIM''

try taking out both cards and popping the battery on the phone.

Wait a few minutes and then turn the phone on with no card in it.

Turn it back off when it says no card found and insert the newer card and power it back up.

It seemed to keep a memory of the blank card.

Removing my phone number

Not sure what you mean? Your number is either stored in your phone book or is being sent by your netowrk provider and if this is the case the number is with your sim, not your phone. if you mean removing your phone number from the phone delete it from the addy book. Else, remove the sim and that should be it!

SIM card from old phone won't work in new phone

How old is your current SIM-card ? There was a change in operating-voltage on the SIM-cards and its a known issue that the P990i wont accept "older" cards. Contact your provider and get a newer card. You could perhaps try one of your friends SIM-cards in your phone, before ordering a new one, if the card is newer than the one you have.
