Have you tried a battery pull? That is the first thing you should do in troubleshooting.

And please update your profile to reflect the 9000 as opposed to the 8300.

Go to the closest AT&T corporate store and ask for a new SIM. You have Fried SIM. Tastes like chicken.

Initialization failed indicates a SIM card problem.
