Insert SIM card means that the SIM is not seated correctly. It may not be locked into place and got jostled around when you plugged the phone into power. This message would not relate to a battery going dead, only to the device not recognizing the SIM card and that would only be if the SIM was not activated (which you know that it is active) or if it is not properly seated (locked down, etc.). Make sure that the SIM is properly seated (look at the manual to be sure) and then you should be okay. If this is not the case, and the SIM is properly seated, then the device is defective, broken or the unlocking caused faulty errors.

I got my lg View from a friend and when i put a sim card in it says Insert Smartchip


Cut a small piece of cardboard or credit card plastic similar in shape to -- but just a bit smaller than -- the smart chip. Place the piece on top of the smart chip. Simultaneously slide both the smart chip and the piece of cardboard/plastic into the smart chip slot. Make certain you are inserting the smart chip with the proper end inserted first and with the contacts uncovered by the extra piece (On the LG Vu, the smart chip contacts will face down and the missing corner will be showing on the outside of the slot when the card is inserted properly.). If that doesn't do the trick -- see your cell phone provider and/or get a new phone.

There are several reasons for this message. Has your sim been activated by your servide provider? If not, you must call them.

Has your sim expired or been damaged in some way? If so, it must be replaced.

Have you inserted the sim correctly? The gold contacts of the card must be facing down, and the cut corner must be facing out of the card slot, pointing to the right hand side.

Do you have the right sim for your phone's cellular service provider? If your phone is locked to one provider you can't use a sim card from another provider, unless the phone is unlocked.

Hope one of these helps!

Says insert smart chip


smart chip means the SIM card.

try cleaning the metallic part of the SIM card with a cloth and the metal connectors on the phone with cotton bud etc.

Put it back and try again.

If not working grab another SIM card (working - friend's etc) to test.

If still not working, send to service centre.
If working for other SIM card then replace your own SIM card.

It is possible to put the sim card in backwards.  My daughter did and when we turned it around I no longer got the "smart chip" error message.

My phone keeps saying insert smart chip


attempt to take the SIM card out and gently wipe it off (pay especial detail to the copper connectors on the under-side.) after that, give a gentle blow to the recieving area for the sim on the phone and place the sim back in the phone, power up, and hopefully this problem will be solved. this issue occurs often to myself and this seems to be a very simple solution.

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.
