I've had the same problem occur once or twice. Seems when the cellular provider makes a system switch from one tower to another system (carrier) the SIM chip can sometimes become temporarily deactivated.

To solve this issue complete the following steps:

1. Shut your phone down
2. Remove your battery and leave it out of the phone for a few minutes
3. Remove you SIM card and wait for a count of 10sec
4. Reinstall the SIM and battery
5. Power the unit on
6. Perform an Initial System Configuration/Setup
7. When the system prompts you to copy the phone list information, select YES
8. Check your phone status. It should now be back to normal.

If following these simple steps does NOT bring your phone back to normal, there may be a problem with either your cellular account (account suspended) or there has been failure of the local cellular network you are trying to connect to. To verify this you will need to either have a second phone with the same carrier to verify connection and/or SIM functionality. If this is not possible, contact your service provider to report a service outage.

Inactive sim is usually related to your SIM Card, you should try reinserting your SIM card again, to see if it works, or simply insert your current SIM card into another phone to check if there is any service. should both failed. It should be your SIM card problem, you can contact your service provider or carrier to have a replacement SIM.

Transfer contacts with an inactive smartchip


Since you say that your computer can read your memory card, you could try puting a sim into your phone temporarily and then backing up your contacts onto your memory card...sony ericsson phones do provide you with that option.The procedure is: Phonebook--options--more--advanced--back up to memory card. Hope it helps, Rushil

You cannot reactivate a smartchip aka sim card...once it's deactivated for security purposes they are not reactivated. You will need to get a new smartchip

Insert Smartchip


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.

Screen with 'Insert SmartChip' message


Hi,

I have the same phone, and was getting the same "Insert Smartchip" message.

I seem to have fixed it by taking off the cover on the back of the phone (the part with the Sony Ericsson name on it), taking out the large battery, and gently pushing the little blue Smartchip back into its chamber with my fingernail, as it must have come loose somehow. The Smartchip "clicks" into the chamber when it is in there correctly.

I put it all back together, turned the phone off, then back on. When it came on, it worked again.

Hope this helps!

Take the SmartChip out and gently wipe it and the phone where it inserts. This has worked for me.
