Have you removed and replaced the SIM card in its slot? If that does not work, you ma need a fresh SIM card, as on occasion the cease to work properly.

Heres a list of things for you to try:

1) Try factory resetting your phone
(Some users have noted software error as the cause of the no sim error message appearing)

2) Try a new sim card
(Like David said, yours may be faulty)

3) Try sticking a piece of paper or something similar between your sim card and the holder.
(This would tell you that you have a faulty sim card slot/holder and that would need to be replaced)

Just to Butt in.

Try number 2 first then number 1, I don't recommend number 3 ( especially if you're under warranty).
