Reformat your device to see if the SIM card is activated on the reboot. Usually, this solves the issue but you can troubleshoot further by putting your phone in 2G instead of automatic. Also, you need to be using a SIM from your the network who provided you the phone unless you have unlocked it from the carrier. No new SIM from a different network will work unless the phone has been jailbroken.
