Make sure you have 3g enabled on your phone and it isn't set to 2g only or gsm only. Also make sure you are putting in the sim correctly. If it still doesnt work, try a battery pull out. If it still doesn't work after that, it may be a faulty sim or a faulty sim reader.

In addition check to be certain that airplane or flight mode isn't on.
