    I was fooling around with some of the settings on my phone (Galaxy Captivate), and I had accidentally set the phone to lock-up and require a PIN of some sort in order to access the SIM card. I was unable to turn this option off, so I went into my privacy settings and did a factory reset. Worst mistake ever, one because I lost everything; two because it did not fix the problem.

    Now I am stuck with absolutely no network, and my phone's home/lock screen says: No SIM card. Please Insert a SIM card.

    Any help? I'm about to go out of town and need this fixed TODAY. Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

    FINALLY found the information on the AT&T site. Apparently I will have to purchase a new SIM card. -____-
