    I have the exact same issue. I went to 3 dfferent stores to figure out what was wrong. I called the customer service number, and they transferred me to the Sidekick "specialists." After having me do the soft reset, check the radio number, and a hard reset, the idiot guy asked how long had I been using the SIM card. Duh, the phone is less than 2 yrs old...why the F*ck would I have a different one???? After telling him hom that I've been using it since activation, he goes, "whoa, that's a long time! the life on those is about 12 months." What the f*ck! Yeah right. The card works just fine in another phone...I'm now using a cheapy prepaid while my $300+ SK2 holds down my stack of papers!

First, read the owner's manual and see which type of SIM card your phone accepts or is configured to make use of for it to operate
Sim cards come in 3 different shapes
1. Normal Sim card
2. Micro Sim card (mid way)
3. Nano Sim card (smallest)

There are SIm card adapters so you can use Micro Sim card in Normal Sim card only phones

There are Sim card adapters so you can use Nano Sim cards in either Micro Sim card or Normal Sim card phones.

This device uses a Micro SIM card. Insert SIM CARD Turn the phone off. Remove the back cover using the notch located at the bottom edge of the phone. Lift the battery out. Slide the SIM card (flat-edge-first) into the slot, with the gold contacts facing down. Replace the battery while ensuring the gold contacts are aligned. Replace the back cover.

My viewty keeps switching it self on and off


I have just had the same problem. i was so scared that i had lost all my personal data.
my sim card was years old and as the software on the lg is new it was causing it to shut down and reboot over and over and the only way to stop it was to take out the battery.

This MIGHT help! it helped me.
Take the battery out and put someone else's sim card in (someone who has a new sim card) - they have to be the same network. (if your own sim is really new this may not help) .

put the LG back together and switch on - the phone should start new set up. if it prompts you to copy contacts to phone press no.

if this works then it is a software problem. this may be the best time to back up all your data on your computer via the lg suit.

then put your own sim back in. if the problem still happens then you need to call your phone service provider and get them to refresh your sim card - do the same process as above and this should fix it.

i hope this helps.
