    Jags, have you tried re-seating your SIM Card a few times? Also, there may be some gunk (fuzz or other) in the SIM holder. Try blowing out anything that might be in there.

    Also, I would advise against posting your phone number. You never know who might call you.

    Simply just taking the SIM out and making sure it is placed back in correctly. Somtimes, if it isn't placed perfectly, it won't be read.

    If you're not using the 7100i you might be able to use a pencil eraser to clean the SIM contacts on the BB. Just gently rub the erase against the contacts. If it is a 7100i I think the best you can do is blow on it since the SIM slides in (IIRC).
