The SIM card doesn't have anything to do with it -- if you plug the phone into your computer, does it turn on? If not, then your dock cable is broken or not fully plugged in ... try unplugging the internal dock ribbon cable and reconnecting it.

(If your battery is dead and the dock connector is not fully plugged in, the phone will look "dead" because there's no way to charge it and too little power to wake the phone up.)
