Good news guys.i dropped into the Grafton street three store in Dublin and i explained the problem to one of the guys and  he was a a bit puzzled to.so he gave me a new Sim replacement and all is working fine now.Due to my job i am not aloud to have a phone with a camera so i normally swap my Sim between my iphone and a alcatel one touch(no camera)so i think it might have got damaged with all the swapping out.so i think there might be a lesson here to be learned.

Hey Johnee,

 

That does sound like a strange one alright. The steps @billbond4 gave you try are all spot on and a new SIM card should do the trick./ Have you been using it for a long time?
