Turn off the iPhone. Hold the Home AND Power button for 10 seconds EXACTLY. Then let go of the Power button and CONTINUE TO HOLD THE HOME BUTTON for 10 seconds. This should get your phone into recovery mode, and you can restore through iTunes from there.

The SIM card issue is because the iPhone was activated with that SIM, and must be used with THAT sim. You can bypass this by running QuickPwn, and unlocking the phone. Assuming you have the older iPhone, once you complete the procedure, just pop in the new SIM card, and your services should be running. Remember a DATA plan is required to use internet on the new SIM card, without accuring internet fees.
