Boyfriends brand new nephew threw-up in the shirt pocket his minutes phone was in he had just loaded and doubled the minutes is there some way i can transfer his number and everything to this other LG he...


Hi there, Im sorry to hear about your dilemma, lets try and get you fixed.

If you take the sim card out of the broken phone and put it into the other LG, does the phone accept the sim card? (phone may be locked to one network ie 02, vodafone etc)

If the phone does not accept the sim card you will need a new sim that the phone allows, then phone your network provider (for new sim) and tell the customer services you want to keep your old number. (sim out of broke phone)

About the data stored on your boyfriends phone, if the phone does not turn on, the data is lost. Unless it has a memory card inserted and your boyfriends data is stored onto that.

Hope this helps if you need any further help, please comment and i'll get straight back to you

I bought a prepaid phone card for my lg cookie and it will not let me add it i called at&t and they did something and made my phone not have a number and now it says i do not have a sims card too what...


if you are using a sim card from a prepaid phone just bought, and then add it to another att branded phone, it will not work. if you use the sim card in the new prepaid phone, it will work. att locks the sims from working in other phones for 3 months from the factory. i did the same thing with a prepaid phone and a Q9, put the sim in the q9 and it said, no service. put the sim in the prepaid phone, it worked fine. my suggestion is to talk nice ot the att store employee, and they will give you a new sim.

let me know if your phone is doing something different.

Absolutely, what you need to do first though, is have your IMEI and SIM serial numbers handy from the first phone. Simply push the center, round button in the middle of the top array, and it should open to Prepaid, select that and go to the 2cd option which is IMEI and select that, and write down that number. Then do the same thing with the 3rd option, which is SIM. Once you have those 2 numbers in hand, do the same ith your new phone. Once done, call the 1 800 number for your area and speak with a represenative and they will walk you through the rest of the proscess and add your existing minutes to your new phone.

Motorola razr v3 app.2005


It depends on which carrier the prepaid was with.
if The original prepaid and your wifes plan are both with the same carrier then it should be no problem just swap the sim over.
eg ( telstra to telstra ) or Optus To optus.
If the v3 is an Optus predaid and your wifes sim is a telsra plan then it wont accept the sim as the carriers lock the prepaid phones to their network
