Hello,i think an application on your phone is not installed properly or it's corrupted.

You can check what application is still running and close it up.

You can also use this if no application is running.

You will have to flash the phone to restore the memory of the phone.

You can use this link to see how to flash your phone.

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.

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.

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.

"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!

On the top where the latch closes on the chip take it and put a curve in it to where it bows up. Mine did the same thing after i did that it worked fine.

You have to insert the smart card all the way in on these phones. You can use a pen cap or something to push it all the way in there until it goes all the way in and click and stays there. Then it will not say " insert smart chip" anymore.
