try placing other sim card on your phone! if it still switches off, then you should send it to a service personnel!

SOURCE: 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?

Enter *#865625# then the 16 digit unlock code*

Unlock Cingular LG CU500 for Cellular One


The LG CU500 is a 3G phone I think. You may need to change your SIM CARD to 3G. I had a razor and my Sim didn't work with the LG CU320 I bought. Also unlocking a LG phone is a little more troublesome that other phones. I found a solution on the web. sorry I don't remember the website address, but it comes up in any google search. Hope this helps.

Good luck
