Question about LG VX8300 Cellular Phone

2 Answers

Cell phone sim card

I have an LG VX8300 made exclusively for Verizon, however I have switched to AT&T Cingular utilizing a sony Ericson and want to abandon the sony and use the LG VGX8300 (don't ask why) regardless If I could find the location of a sim card I'm told I can simply move the card from the Sony to the LG and all is good. I don't think the LG has a sim card. How can I switch phones?

Re: Cell phone sim card

All mobiles have a sim card and are normally located under the battery.

Take the back of your phone, remove the battery and it should be there. Sim cards are normally a small oblong piece of plastic with a corner cut off. The flip side of one will have a metal strip, which is your sim memory. Don't damamge this side of the sim otherwise your card will be useless.

Hope this helps?

I have a Verizon LG VX8300 phone that I would like to give to my grandson to replace his lost phone. His service is on T-Mobile. Can this be done (I can't even find the SIM card in the phone).

Lg VX8300 is a cdma phone that doesn't carry sim card. Your grandson will need to contact T-Mobile, provide them with the ESN # from the back of this phone. They will then switch the service to this phone. You will find ESN number behind the phone, starting with D or H or A (like hex or dec or Meid #)

Can LG VX10000 can be converted with a prepaid sim

No, the VX10000 is CDMA and does not use SIM cards. Verizon Wireless uses CDMA as their service and this works without using the SIM card, and for the most part, would be USA only. AT&T and T-Mobile use GSM. GSM service uses SIM cards and you can usually switch to another SIM card and switch to another service very easily. But not on Verizon phones and not on the VX10000.

How do I export my contact list from an LG VX8300?

Are you staying with the same mobile carrier? If so, you should be able to copy all of your contacts to your sim card, and then when you switch phones, all of your contacts will already be on your sim card. Hope this helps

I have a sony ericson w350i phone my grand daughter snapped the front flip off can i purchase anew one and how much will it cost

I just went through the same ordeal with my phone. I went into the cingular store and they told me I had to outright by a new one or a different phone, and even suggested I go to walmart, buy a prepaid and put my sim card in it. No! I contacted Sony Ericson by email, they wrote back and told me to call this number, 1-866-766-9374 where a very nice customer service person took my info and told me a new flip door would be here in 3-5 business days, free of charge.
