While inserting SIM card, the message shown on screen is: "No SIM Card".

You need to activate the SIM for usage from your cell provider first, in order for the phone to recognize. If you've already done this, make sure the SIM is properly inserted into the slot, with the contacts facing down. If there's a possibility that you received a faulty SIM, contact your carrier for a replacement.

Just got an Xperia T3. Trying to insert SIM and memory card.

There are 2 bits of paper where the cards are meant to go. Are these meant to be removed?

Yes, they are. Simply remove them and insert the SIM and memory card each in it's slot. PAY EXTRA ATTENTION to the orientation of the cards. There are engraved shapes illustrating how to orient the card before inserting, DO NOT use force in inserting.
