Sometimes you may get an error on your LG V20 that says something like “No Service”. This can happen if you have forgotten to pay your bill, of course, but if you have paid and should have service, there are a number of different causes for receiving this error.
Issues Causing LG V20 No Service Error
There are basically three reasons that your LG V20 might get a No Service error.
The first reason is that the radio in your smartphone may have turned itself off. This happens occasionally when there are issues with the WiFi or GPS components of your phone.
The second reason is that your SIM card may have an issue.
The third reason is that your IMEI may have an issue.
I will show you how to fix each of these possible causes.
