You do have a sim card already installed. it is an error that apple needs to fix.
It took me about an hour to research the site and get this info... Go to this URL (below) and follow instructions to remove SIM card. I lightly blew on the card and the SIM card holder space to clear and it is now working fine... Yippee!!!

Contact Verizon or the Apple Store where you got it. Verizon is a CDMA carrier and does not use SIM cards. There have been a few reports of this with new Verizon phones. They should be able to resolve it for you.
