I encounter the same issues. I have noticed that disabling auto suspend
and not doing _anything_ related to SIM or suspend (which means no
calls, no contacts, no messages etc.) until after ~5 minutes *after* GSM
registration helps. Then I try and make a call to my operator to verify
that everything work, and only then suspend manually. Doing this ensures
my phone keeps working when it wakes up.

I have noticed that accessing SIM contacts even beyond this procedure
breaks suspend and/or calling unpredictably. I tend to avoid using SIM
contacts a much as I can.
