Is the iPhone locked to a particular network carrier? Maybe the SIM card you are using is for another carrier.

e.g. iPhone locked to O2 (Verizon, AT&T, Vodaphone) but SIM is for T-Mobile or 3.

Until you insert in a valid sim for the iPhone 3G it will not activate. If you want to, you can jailbreak & unlock the phone to give you access to the phone without a valid sim. Greenpois0n and PwnageTool are two examples of tools that you can use to jailbreak/unlock your iPhone 3G.

Take a look in the back of the sim card and see if you notice any problems with the copper linings, If so then just go to ATT and they will give you a free sim card for your under your plan. Make sure you have it inserted correctly in the tray there is only one way for it to go in .
