    Try another SIM from the same network. If the phone works then we know its the SIM. Get a cheap supermarket carrier bag and rub the SIM contacts with it, then get a pencil eraser and clean the SIM contacts again. Pop it back in the phone.

    Leave the battery out for half an hour and try again.
