I had mine in upside down and that caused it to say insert smartchip.....could be a back sim card. If you have another phone test out the sim card in that phone or have your service provider help check the sim card
take out the chip, and the battery and put the entire phone in a pound of dry uncooked rice. leave it for three days. also put the battery into the rice separate from the phone. cover the container with saran wrap or aluminum foil to keep it as air tight as possible.
if you are fortunate by the end of day three the phone will be moisture free.
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.
