SIM card is needed to operate, please insert ???

My phone worked for me all the way to work, while sitting in my console...then i get to work and it says that a SIM card is needed to operate and that I need to turn it off and insert...well as other Razr owners know, you can't remove the SIM card...why is it doing this for no reason?

Honest that I haven't dropped it or anything..literally it just sat in the console..

It's the battery that can't be removed.  Try turning off the phone, remove the SIM card (be careful not to touch the gold contacts), wait a few minutes, then re-insert the SIM card, turn the phone back on, and give it a couple of minutes to re-establish a network connection.  If that doesn't work, the SIM card may have somehow become corrupted and you'll need a new one (they're free at your local Corporate Verizon store).  Here's a link on how to insert/remove the SIM card:
