It's possible the SIM card within your phone has become loose. You may want to check your owners manual to locate where it is on your phone. After locating it, you should remove it and put it back in to the device.Make sure the phone is off when you do this, and then restart it when you're done.

Phone not working.. Asking for smartchip


Sounds to me like your sim card is bad. Try wiping it off and putting it back, but you will most likely need to go get a new sim card.

"Smartchip not provisioned MM # 2" What does this mean???


Your smartchip apparently isn't active with your cellphone service company. Are you certain that the chip you have installed in the phone is the one that your cell service gave you currently? You mentioned putting minutes on your phone, so I'm assuming you have a pre-paid plan. You must have a smartchip that's specifically set up for that type of service.

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

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.

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.
