1st my phone said insert SIM, I then took some on-line advice to get new batterie and charge on off all night. This did not work! I then tried to put my sim in another phone that phone worked but still said insert sim, however my husbands sim worked fine in my phone. This ruled out my phone being screwed up. Do you think my sim card is FRIED and how does this happen out of the blue if so?

Hi when you take that back cover off take out the battery and look for where the sim card is located. It will be very small and slid into a little holder. Take that SIM card out and make sure that the contacts on it line up with the contacts in its Holder. If the SIM is not in right it will always tell you Insert SIM. These phones rely on that SIM Card for the Information and Other Settings they need to work properly.
If you still get that Insert SIM message then it is possible that your phone was not Programmed Properly at the Place You Bought it. Take it to them and they will fix it Free.
Try rigorously cleaning the sim card and phone connections (also battery connections - after reading forums the batteries on V3's are often to blame for their problems) with a cotton bud then leave the phone off without the sim card in it and charge it overnight. Then put in the sim card and turn the phone on. This might help. My V3 often says Insert SIM and it is very annoying so i'm getting rid of it but those methods have worked for me.
yes there is one way to fix this it would however involve taking it to a repair centre and will probably cost you about £40.00 as it sounds like the charger port has become disconnected and requires a new port and the sim holder has become loosened so therefore needs replacing.
I had the same problem with charging, I found that my car charger and via USB charged the phone but not my home charger. Give that a try, if it works with either one of them you will have to send it to Motoservice center and they will fix the internal connection problem. (save your money on buying new batteries and chargers) Make sure that the phone is not locked to a network, or make sure that the SIM has not expired and has plenty of credit.
Don't buy a RAZR. i work for verizon and the RAZR is the worst phone for battery life. There is, however an extended battery that may provide a temporary fix until you buy your next phone....and don't buy a RAZR
