Question about Samsung Wave S8500 Smartphone
First check that the SIM and if possible the phone's SIM electrical contacts are not greasy or dirty. But otherwise, the most likely cause is a corrupted SIM. You'll have to try another one from the same network (if your phone is carrier-locked). If you accidentally touch the SIM contacts it's very easy to send a chip-frying burst of static electricity into it. For similar reasons, SIMs should only ever be swapped with the phone turned off, but as almost all phones need the battery removed to do so this precaution is usually automatically applied.
If that doesn't work you can safely assume that your phone is faulty and will need to go to a repair shop (warranty repair?) as any further remedies need specialist equipment and skills.
