    Welcome to iMore! Does iMessage work? Have you reached out to your carrier support? Could you need a new SIM card?

    Did you buy the new phone brand new or used? Was it unlocked?

    Sorry you’re having issues. I’d contact AT&T Support.

    Paul, the primary problem is with your wireless carrier, especially if you purchased the iPhone 7 from them. With that being said, if you are unable to use your iPhone as it was intended or in the manner you expected when you purchased it then you should consider switching to a different carrier.

    Having said that, the carrier cannot help you if your device is protected via the iCloud Activation Lock so if you’re using a found or stolen phone and you’re trying to logout of the account on it, but don’t have the passcode, you’re stuck. Plain and simple.

    Lastly, if the device is on the up and up then try resetting the network settings on the device.
