Does the IMEI show up?
Does it match what is on your SIM card?
If not your SIM slot connectors may need some clean up - try using CRC QD Electronic Cleaner along with something very small and non-abrasive to get at the contacts - be very careful not to damage or bend the contact wires. As a first attempt, remove the SIM card, spray the cleaner (a couple small squirts to hit the contacts), spray a small amount on the SIM card, insert/remove the SIM card, gently clean the SIM card, then wait 10 minutes for everything to dry. You can use compressed air (i.e. Dust Off) if you have it to dry around the area - gently.
If you still don't see your IMEI, you may need a replacement SIM card.
Or it could me something else altogether....
