I got my lg View from a friend and when i put a sim card in it says Insert Smartchip


Cut a small piece of cardboard or credit card plastic similar in shape to -- but just a bit smaller than -- the smart chip. Place the piece on top of the smart chip. Simultaneously slide both the smart chip and the piece of cardboard/plastic into the smart chip slot. Make certain you are inserting the smart chip with the proper end inserted first and with the contacts uncovered by the extra piece (On the LG Vu, the smart chip contacts will face down and the missing corner will be showing on the outside of the slot when the card is inserted properly.). If that doesn't do the trick -- see your cell phone provider and/or get a new phone.

Why is my phone saying insert smart chip, phone is unlocked


Unlocking means that it can work on any compatible network -- it's no longer tied to one carrier -- but you still need a SIM card for your provider so the phone has an identity on the network.

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.

Says insert smart chip


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.

My phone keeps saying insert smart chip


attempt to take the SIM card out and gently wipe it off (pay especial detail to the copper connectors on the under-side.) after that, give a gentle blow to the recieving area for the sim on the phone and place the sim back in the phone, power up, and hopefully this problem will be solved. this issue occurs often to myself and this seems to be a very simple solution.
