The memory card might not have clicked into the slot , so remove and check the direction youhave inserted the micro sd card. Remove and push it to CLICK on to the latch , Now it mut be detected to open the files present.

Insert smartchip


You are placing the smart chip on top of the smart chip holder. It's a little metal square where the smart chip should go. Lift up the metal square and place the smart chip underneath. I had to go to my local AT&T dealer to figure this out.

Says insert smart chip


smart chip means the SIM card.

try cleaning the metallic part of the SIM card with a cloth and the metal connectors on the phone with cotton bud etc.

Put it back and try again.

If not working grab another SIM card (working - friend's etc) to test.

If still not working, send to service centre.
If working for other SIM card then replace your own SIM card.

It is possible to put the sim card in backwards.  My daughter did and when we turned it around I no longer got the "smart chip" error message.

It did that for me too. But when I pushed it down gently and inserted it in, it worked for me.

"insert smart chip" eror message - smart chip is in but nothing


Hi there!

The first thing to try is cleaning the contacts for the smart chip, on the phone and the chip itself. Use a little rubbing alcohol on cotton buds and be careful you don't bend the contacts in the phone. If that doesn't remedy the problem, get your service provider to give you a new chip. They should be willing to give you one for free. If that doesn't fix it, then it is probably a phone problem. You may go to your service provider or any nearest mobile phone repair shop to have it fixed. You may also have the phone replaced if your budget allows it.

Happy holidays!

Cannot activate brand new AT&T LG CU515


You can remove the smart chip and try charging the battery and wait for some minutes and reinsert it to the slot. If that doesn't help you can contact customer service at att.com/support to chat live with a customer representative.
