    First off check if your SIM card is inserted properly. Second did you turn on the radio? That should be located under Manage Connections.

    SOS means you can only make emergency calls. 911 and Possibly 611, but I'm not sure about that last one.

    why would it go into that mode all the time? why wouldnt it just let me make calls if i have enough service to call 911?

    It could be like Stacey says a bad SIM card. To answer your question above, yes you can take your sim in and check it or sometimes they will just give you an upgraded one. ATT did this for me. Having SOS all the time is not normal. Also, are you in a poor coverage area? Have you tried taking your SIM out and putting it into another phone or a friends phone and seeing if you get any signal?

    it could be a bad sim...or under "manage connection -> mobile network options -> network selection mode" is set to manual and set to the wrong provider, just change it to automatic if this is the case

    SOS is emergency mode, you'll get this with no sim card installed, or if your phone is not unlocked and your using a sim card from another carrier

    Sounds like your SIM card isn't activated possibly or a bad SIM card?
    I'd take it to the store and see what they have to say.
