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

I have a w850i and the sceen shows emergency calls


1. It's a common problem with Sony Ericsson W850 phone!

2. It displays the 'Emergency Calls Only' message even the network is available. (Mainly due to the change in the frequency of the signals!)

3. You should try to update the phone OS/Firmware.

4. If it don't helps try to reinstall the OS software!

please rate this advice if it helps...tc! :)

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

Contact your Phone Provider’s Tech Support to troubleshoot and confirm that you may need a PUK reset code.

I turn on my LG Shine cell phone and no matter


Turn off the phone. Take the battery and Sim Card out. Make sure there is no dust or dirt of where the Sim Card goes. Blow air (from your mouth) of where the Sim Card goes. Sometimes rubbing a soft pencil eraser on the Sim Card contact points can help. Then place the Sim Card back in the phone. Make sure it is in the right position; copper contacts facing downward. Put the battery back in your phone. Turn it on, and see if the smartchip rejected goes away.

If not you may need to contact your Phone Provider’s Tech Support to troubleshoot and confirm that you may need a PUK reset code to register or you may need a new Sim Card, as they do fail from time to time.

Insert Smartchip


Your smartchip is fried. You need to replace it and can get it from your carrier.

LG phone flashing "Please insert Smartchip" when it is already in


I was told sometimes you have to wiggle it around sometimes, i was having the same problem this morning, i just wiggled it some without taking out the battery and it worked for me, if that doesnt work, maybe try taking out the battery and wiggling it some more. Hope this helps.

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!
