Try powercycling your phone first.

Powercycling means :

Close your phone
Take your SIM card out
Wait a little bit (1-2minutes)
Put the SIM back on
Light the phone up!

No, it doesn't.

Powercycling refers to:

Battery pull(leaving phone on, take out the battery, wait one minute, put battery back in, turn the phone back on).

If the phone doesn't have a removable battery:

Turn on airplane mode, turn phone off, wait 1 minute, turn phone back on, turn off airplane mode.

Removing the sim card does not do anything.

Did you make sure that 3g is enabled and it is not set to 2g only?
