    Hopefully its just an OS update as Carrier said above, but you may want to try wedging something in behind the sim to make sure its touching the contacts of the phone

    Mostly likely have to reload the OS.

    My Bold also says INSERT SIM after unlocking it.

    I reloaded the OS, totally wiped the phone and reloaded it, then BRICKED it to the error 207 and reloaded it.

    It won't read a SIM card. Worked fine before unlocking it, but I unlocked it and then did a battery pull, and it hasn't worked at all since then.

    Have you tried a different sim? Unlocking your phone does not effect anything with the OS

    Try these:

    - Reload the OS
    - Try another sim and see if that works
    - Put something between the sim and the back cage so the sim is pressed against the contacts on the phone
    - clean the sim (and contacts on the phone) with a q-tip or cloth

    Any luck?

    like the remote unlocker stated above, usually when i hear of these problems putting in a new sim card usually helps. that would be my guess

    Is that SIM card working in another phone? Sometimes the SIM reader in the phone gets loose, so you can try putting a piece of paper over the SIM to create pressure, or as mentioned above, try upgrading the OS on your Blackberry or getting your SIM replaced.

    first see if the sim card is the problem. try another phone. if it works than it's your phone. if it doesn't work it's the sim card. but you said you used other sim's and it's not working so i'm assuming it's your phone.

    os update
    battery pull. give it a few minutes.
    like cellunlock said try pressing the sim card up agaist the phone more give it a better chance of reading.
