I'm not sure if this is the phone problem or ROM problem or SIM problem.
Just post here to see anyone can help.
Thanks in advance.

I've installed CM7 for over two weeks, with everything working great!
But this morning, my phone showed a notification with "No SIM Card. Emergency calls only".

Well, here are what I tried to solve the problem:

1. I tried to open my phone, remove the battery and SIM card and cleaned it  and insert again
(i'm 120% sure it's in the right direction, it has worked fine for months!)
didn't work.

2. I re-installed ROM and still "No SIM Card". btw, I tried to install Leedroid and CM7 again.

3. I reset the phone to factory setting and erased/format the SD card, which i saw somewhere online.

4.I checked the "Location & security" - "Set up SIM card lock" and found the box of "Lock SIM card (require PIN to use phone)" is ticked,
I don't remember i did this! and I tried to input some PIN like 0000 or 1234. didn't work.
I thought it might be the SIM card problem then, and emailed my phone carrier about the PIN.
but I removed the SIM and rebooted the phone and re-checked the SIM card status, the "Lock SIM card" box was still there.
Ok, I got really confused in here now.

my phone carrier replied to my email, telling me to try SIM card in other phone, if it requires PUK, they will give me PUK. (I will do that tmr)
I'm thinking of trying some friend's SIM in my phone to see if the problem is in the phone hardware.

------------------------

Well, I don't know if this is just a simple problem. if it is, please help me. i got messed by this whole day.
thanks again.

Sounds like a sim lock because your phone is locked although it is weird it is doing it. Try another sim card and if it's still doing it, then it's locked. You can try to sim unlock utility over at XDA.
