Back to the carrier store and have them replace the SIM.
Or have them send you a new SIM.
Based on what you said it does not sound like the BB is the trouble unless your inserting the SIM wrong.

Did you buy it new or used?

What did you do to the device just before this happened the first time? Did you drop it or get it wet?

If it is still under warranty and not damaged, have it replaced.
