    Hey all. I have an LG Chocolate fone and Vodafone Pay Monthly contract. Suddenly when i started up my phone it comes up on the home screen ""SIM Card Registration Failure" and now I can't receive/make any calls or texts.

    It is true I am about 2 weeks late of one of my payments, but surely they didn't lock my SIM card? I asked my friend who works in the phone business and he says they wouldnt lock because of a late payment that quickly so I am very confused.

    I am in the middle of changing ownership of the contract to my girlfriend's sister and all i need to do is give her 'change of ownership' forms and then when she fills them out just send them away. However I need my SIM card to be working with the contract on it to give to her so I am great need of knowing what I should do...

    Any help VERY much appreciated thank you

    Why not just call up your carrier and ask them? That would be your best bet.

    Turn the phone off, remove the SIM card and battery, replace and power back on.

    Nope.

    So, yeah, turn off your phone and make sure the SIM is in there correctly, then turn your phone back on.

    Yes.

    So, Everhart, did you try removing the SIM card and then re-inserting it? *puzzled*
