If it really is a sim chip, then I don't know. I know about Verizon razr, which doesn't use a sim card. However Verizon razr has a memory card, which people might mistakenly refer to as sim chip, that stores photos and music. It doesn't come with the phone, so if you purchased the phone you'd know whether or not you have one. If your phone is like the Verizon razr, then remove the battery cover and the battery. The memory card, if it is installed, is just to your right (when looking into the back) of the vertical center. It's about the size of a finger nail. Use your thumbnail to pull it (towards the top of the phone) out of the slot. Then insert the card into the adapter card that came in the package when you purchased the memory card, and put the adapter card into the smart reader slot in your printer or pc.
It is not a stellar design. To remove the memory card you have to use a tad more force than you think you should. With your thumbnail pull against the little raised portion on the end of the card. Help it along past the little dimple on left by pushing the card sideways to the right. Maybe tweezers would help if you are careful not to damage the card. Good luck. It's not something you want to do everyday.

take the back off and remove the battery and remove the sim chip. Put the battery back in and power up the phone without the sim chip. This seems to reset the phone. Turn off the phone, remove the back take out the battery, reinstall the sim chip and put the battery back in - and the phone shoudl work.
Also, If you have a bunch of message, pictures and recordings, clean it up.
Hi folks - I took apart and totally destroyed my Verizon branded RAZR V3m. There is NO SIM card. Instead, there is a memory chip hard wired to the circuit board. From what I saw, this memory chip is preprogrammed with the phone number and carrier features. The card picture referred to above is for the micro SD card. This card is just for additional memory - for pics, video, and music, dependent on the carrier. I also went to the Motorola web site. They're unlocked RAZR V3's have a SIM slot underneath the battery. Bottom Line? If your RAZR V3 doesn't have a SIM card slot under the battery, forget it. You can not change carriers.
Okay, here is a link that will help..but it shows you how to insert it instead of remove, but you would just be doin reverse so either way it will benefit you. http://www.somelifeblog.com/2007/09/razr-install-microsd-transflash-card.html
I had exactly the same problem. After unsucessfully looking for a solution on the net I removed the simm chip and set it aside. The next day, I put it on PC usb charge and left it overnight. The next day, I powered it up and it worked. I turned it off and replaced the simm and it is now working fine. Go figure...
I have the same problem, displays shows no service and occasionally says invalid battery. Done all the usual things i.e. tried different sim card, different battery. I bought the phone on ebay from Hong Kong. At the moment it is a very good ornament! Help please.
