Pull out the battery and sim card for a few mins and try again.
If the battery doesnt come out, then try restarting the phone

This sometimes happens when the phone comes out of a no network area and find signal. It happens to me sometimes. Waiting 30s does the trick for me with no battery pull required or restart. I just guess it takes a lil while to establish network connections properly
