SOURCE: lg shine ke970

I'm glad that there are other people out there was having this problem. I spent about a total of 48 hours talking to the AT&T customer service to see what the hell the problem was with my phone not picking up service. The couldn't really help me. So...

I did some research and found that T-Mobile is the largest GSM provider for Triband and Quadband phones. I have the Lg KE970 and since it's a triband phone, I was really hoping that t-mobile would give me great service with it. NOW...

The next thing that I did was contacted T-Mobile to see if the coverage was good in my area (Lubbock, Texas) and they said it was excellent. So then I went from there.

The next thing that I did was went to wal-mart to pick a up a free sim card and as soon as I popped it it, BAM!!!, 5 bars. So right then and there, I called up T-Mobile to set up an account.

So yeah, if you didn't get any of that, just switch to T-Mobile and import your phone number there. PLUS, they have a limited time promotional offer where you get 1000 anytime minutes and free nights and weekend minutes for only $39.99.

SO switch to T-Mobile and get that plan. It's worth it and no matter what, you will still be on that plan. :-)

I hope that helped you guys!

LG shine cu720 how do i save text messages on the sim card

The LG Shine will only save messages to the SIM card after the internal phone memory is full (150 messages). This all happens automatically, and as far as I can tell, there is no way to force the phone to choose. Also, note that the SIM card will only store 30 messages. You can select the options menu

I turn on my LG Shine cell phone and no matter

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. Sometimes rubbing a soft pencil eraser on the Sim Card contact points can help. 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, and see if the smartchip rejected goes away.

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

Lg shine, unlock security code

In order to master reset your LG Shine when you forget your security code you need to access the engineer's menu which LG claims doesn't exist. The code is 277634#*# I just tested it on my shine and it works like a charm. It opens up the hidden menu and offers you 9 new features and one is reset all phone settings to default. Use that option and it will clear all forgotten pins.
