It means your sim card is damaged, so you must renew it

Says smartchip rejected


remove the sim card from the phone and clean the sim card slot with a cotton wool dabbed in methylated spirit and insert the sim back into the slot,put it on and test it.

If this does not work then you should replace the sim card holder.a repairer can help you with that.

It just says smart chip rejected?

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. 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. See if the smartchip rejected goes away.

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

"Smartchip not provisioned MM # 2" What does this mean???

Your smartchip apparently isn't active with your cellphone service company. Are you certain that the chip you have installed in the phone is the one that your cell service gave you currently? You mentioned putting minutes on your phone, so I'm assuming you have a pre-paid plan. You must have a smartchip that's specifically set up for that type of service.

Turn your smart chip around. When inserted correct, you will be able to see the slanted corner of the chip.

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.

Insert Smartchip

You have to insert the smart card all the way in on these phones. You can use a pen cap or something to push it all the way in there until it goes all the way in and click and stays there. Then it will not say " insert smart chip" anymore.
