Try another known good SIM on your phone. If the other SIM works well on your phone, try cleaning your faulty SIM with an eraser; otherwise, replace it.

If your line/plan is pre-paid, have you run out of credit?

Try General>Settings>Reset>Reset Network Settings.

Try reboot: press and hold Home Button and Power Button together for 15 seconds.

Please let me know if any of the above helped.
