It says insert smartchip and I can only access emergency screen


if you are trying to use the phone with a sim card that you dont usually use with that phone it is most likely locked to another phone take it to your service provider and ask them to unlock it to use on your lg vu . If its your regular sim card then sim card reader is malfunctioning . you will need to have it fixed

My LG Vu today decided to say "Insert Smartchip" and I only have the "emergency" button available. I have tunred it around and around, and nothing works, any other ideas?


I had mine in upside down and that caused it to say insert smartchip.....could be a back sim card. If you have another phone test out the sim card in that phone or have your service provider help check the sim card

Sim Card Problem In LG Vu


This happened to me too. A temporary fix is turn off your phone and put it in front of a really cold air conditioner for about ten minutes. Then turn it on but make sure you keep it in front of the ac to keep it working. What happened is your sim card reader has a thermal problem so you will need to take it in unless you want to spend all your time in front of the ac (which will get expensive...)
