I have tried to go to Advanced Options > Host Routing Table to register it on the network, but I get a 'Registration messaged queued' message.
I'm fairly sure I have the sim card installed correctly (I've tried all the possiblities of fitting it into the slot -- and no, it's not in the SD slot! : )
its either your 8800 is broke or u are installing the simcard backwards
