More information may be useful - new activation? Porting?
I have an iPhone 8 and I have switched providers (and travelled oversea) a few times and I did not have to reset network. Generally I get prompted to accept new carrier settings and that's it.
The only time I did not have service is when the line was actually not provisioned (that was with Koodo trying to get a QC number with an ON address).
I Reset network settings did not work. Help?

While you are waiting for the moderator to respond, you may try the lost/stolen phone trick:
To report your phone stolen. Login to your selfserve account. Choose Plans and Add-ons tab. Choose the Lost/Stolen Phone tab. Choose Suspend Service tab. Wait a few minutes. Report your phone found. Re-start you phone. ALso try a $1 onetime payment to see if it makes a difference.
What error message(s) are you getting? Is your plan active? Is your phone unlocked from a previous carrier? Which service was this phone most recently with?
Unlikely, but try a pencil eraser on the SIM contacts - there may be some debris that needs to be polished off. A no sim message is very unusual.
