Blackberry says to insert sim card and has a red sos symbol

(Blackberry 8100)I keep getting a little red sos symbol in the top right hand corner of my screen, I used to take the battery out and put it back in. This solved the problem for awhile. Now my screen reads insert SIM card at the top middle of my screen and has the sos symbol in the top right hand corner. Nothing I have tried including taking out the battery and sim card then replacing them has worked

Strange symbol on screen of my blackberry pearl


Generally rectangular box appears when you are in Roaming. After doing the Hardreset still if you are getting rectangular box in your handheld kindly walk into the nearest service center.
A hard reset involves physically removing the battery from the smartphone and then reinserting it. To perform a hard reset, complete the following steps:
1) Remove the battery cover from the back of the BlackBerry smartphone.
2) Remove the battery, and then reinsert it after a few seconds.
3) Replace the battery cover.
I hope I was able to help you.
Thank you for using Fixya.

SOS is keeping me from calling or recieving anything


The SOS means your phone is locked and you can only use it with the original provider network
it is possible that if you battery got super low or you updated your software you relocked your phone.
Contact an unlocking service if you want to use another provider.
