Initializing SIM Card

I have a Blackberry Bold, Model 9650(?). Its OS was updated this past weekend.


Everytime I turn it on I get a message, "Initalizing SIM Card." 


(1) Is there any way to get this card inizalized once and for all so that I don't see this message every

time I turn it on???


(2) How do I know I even have an SIM card? What's its function?
