Check to be sure the SIM is i

If it works, there is an issue with your VU and you should contact AT&T for replacement options (warranty, insurance, upgrade). There are other options too like purchasing from ebay or craiglist, or getting a gophone (AT&T prepaid) and putting your SIM in it. It will have your phone number and contact information, you don't have to activate a prepaid account.

If the SIM does not work in another phone, get a SIM replacement. You can do this free and save $25 by going to your nearest AT&T COR store (the ones that sell iPhones, not best buy or walmart or apple... AT&T) and telling the tech support said to get a free SIM.

Hope I could help :)

My LG Vu today decided to say "Insert Smartchip" and I only have the "emergency" button available. I have tunred it around and around, and nothing works, any other ideas?


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

LG phone flashing "Please insert Smartchip" when it is already in


I was told sometimes you have to wiggle it around sometimes, i was having the same problem this morning, i just wiggled it some without taking out the battery and it worked for me, if that doesnt work, maybe try taking out the battery and wiggling it some more. Hope this helps.
