Try usinf a rubber pencil erasor to clean the contacts on the back of the SIM, if this doesn't work, you may have to remove the front panel, and clean the contacts on the inside of the device.

I wreckon its a device problem, I work for a cellular company and the sim does very little in regards to the operation of the phone.

Generally if it says insert sim the contacts in the phone is loosing... well contact with the sim... or its a software issue. Try upgrading your software if possible, if that doesnt sort the problem you could try a sim replacement on the off chance that i'm wrong but its unlikely.

All else fails take it apart as the other guy said!
