Get a new SIM card from your provider. If you are using 4.5 then downgrade the OS.

also a loose sim card can cause the issue, for example, sim card holder is loose which you can slide a piece of paper in between the bracket holder and the sim.

Well not sure if your problem is fixed now but i also had the same problem. I did go get a new sim card and it worked for a lil bit but now it is happening again so i took the back off and bent the metal holder in order to keep the sims card in place and how i do not have that problem again but if that does not help then take a lil eye glass screwdriver and bend then brass prongs up just a lil not much as well as the metal holder and that should help....If not then go back to where u got it and have them help ya.....

What version of the Handheld OS are you running? Options / About will tell you.
