    You can try cleaning the contacts on
    teh SIM with a pencil eraser -- sometimes they oxidize and this cleans
    em up.

    Failing that take it to a store, try the SIM in another phone. If it
    works there, maybe you have a hpone issue. If it won't work in
    another phone, then you have a SIM that has gone belly up and the
    cingular store can get you hooked up with a replacement sim in a
    hurry.

    Same thing happened with mine. My solution was to place a small square of
    electrical tape three layers thick on the inside of the battery cover
    oriented so that it presses down slightly on the SIM. Haven't had a problem
    since.

    Re: RAZR Says "Insert Sim" or "Check Sim"

    i had that problem on one of my moto phones and i had to carefully 'lift up'
    one of the sim card contacts which for an unknown reason was a hair lower
    than the other contacts and obviously not making contact.
    the surgery was successful and i never had another sim card problem with
    that phone.
