Default Question About SIM Cards

I recently bought a device and it doesn't yet recognize the SIM card I put in it. Will the SIM card only be recognized after I have a service plan or is it something due to a faulty device that I should replace before spending on a service plan?

Many Thanks-

The device should be recognizing that the SIM has been inserted, even if only to tell you that it is the wrong SIM.
