Firstly, turn off your smartphone completely. Then get the pin ejector tool that you got with the retail box of the phone and use it to push into the small hole in the SIM tray. It will push the SIM tray out. Here, check if the SIM card is placed correctly in the SIM tray or not. For confirmation, take the SIM card out of the tray and put it there again.
