Just some more information: I have a 8700g, but the carrier I am using is Rogers in Canada. So my SIM card is with Rogers and the unit is unlocked.
Take the card and BB back to a dealer they will replace it for free. I had similar problems with a simm card back when I had a RAZR, and I waited too long. I waited until it could no longer read the SIMM card. Dealer still replaced the card, but I lost all the contact info that was on it and there was nothing they could do. While it still has some "life" and if you have contacts stored on the SIMM take it back before it dies and they might be able to transfer the info for you. Regardless whether you have any contact info on the card or not, take it in to have it replaced, you are living on borrowed time.
