Just Reset It
I was grappling with this issue since I bought my Defy two days ago. I believe the problem was related to my not registering my Google accounts during the initial phone setup.
Admittedly, I'm kind of a noob to Android phones, and was paranoid about ruining my T-Mobile settings (paranoid for a reason; first Android phone worked for two days then stopped recognizing my SIM. After factory resets, lost my T-Mobile settings and it hasn't worked with my SIM since), so I tried to find a workaround without having to reset my phone.
I reset the phone, full functionality was achieved.
Save yourself the headaches, just reset the phone and start over.
