Have you tried restarting your phone?

There are many possible reasons for it. If it worked before and now it doesn't then it could be 1. Bad contact between phone and the SIM (take SIM out and reinsert it); 2. SIM card is defective (get a new SIM); 3. Phone has hardware/software issues (restart the phone, if it persists, look for professional help at store).
