Is it that the FR can't read the SIM, or can't register with the network.

Three are well known for blocking all 2G phones on their network, though
the details of how they do it are fairly vague. One story is that they
disconnect SIMs that get used in 2G devices, another theory is that they
have a whitelist of approved devices, and only allow them to register.

I suggest you try another network.
