My phone model is: LGL53BL. But always says invalid sim card.

-- If their SIM card is at least detected by your phone, that could indicate a problem with your SIM card. Contact your carrier and have them send you a replacement. If their SIM card isn't detected by your phone however, perhaps the SIM card slot in your phone needs to be look at and serviced.
