That's not normal.
I would go back to car phone where house and ask there ?
There could be a problem with the unlock. (Unlikely but bugs can happen).
What happens if you boot the phone up with out a sim card in it?
Yes you will get no service but you need to work out if its shutting down because say the battery is faulty and giving you the wrong reading ?
Hope that helps.
