You have not stated the Brand and the Model of your old phone.
anyway the basic procedure remains the same for every cell phone.
Transfer your all contacts in the old phone to your sim card.
Go to phone book/address book and then contacts.
On the drop down menu you will find 2 options i.e. Copy Sim to Phone and Copy Phone to Sim.
Click on Copy Phone to Sim.
All your contacts will be transferred to Sim.
Remove the sim from the old phone and insert it in the new LG phone.
Repeat the above steps.This time you have to select Copy Sim to Phone.
All your contacts will be stored in the new phone.
This code is stored in the SIM card and when you power up the phone it asks for a pin code before you can operate the phone. In some cases when you enter the wrong pin code too many times the SIM card will lock up. You need to contact the phone service provider for assistance to unlock/remove the pin code.
Not sure what you mean? Your number is either stored in your phone book or is being sent by your netowrk provider and if this is the case the number is with your sim, not your phone. if you mean removing your phone number from the phone delete it from the addy book. Else, remove the sim and that should be it!
Your best option is to take the phone into the store for the following reasons:
1. Although they sell parts for phones, depending on how old the phone is the parts may be harder to find.
2. It's cheaper for you to take into a store and have them do the work for you. As long as you have "insurance" through your carrier they should be able to cover most of the cost. Of course this does not always include labor. So check with your service provider first before going down to the store.
3. It's less time you have spend trying to figure out how to fix yourself and thus causing you less heartache or from further damaging your phone.
I hope this helps. I can answer questions in detail depending on your service provider and Good Luck!
