If you have no service on your LG G5, here are the steps you can take to try and reconnect to the network:

      Tap on Network Mode then select the top option (GSM/WCDMA/LTE).

      Then select Network operators and tap Search Networks.
      Once the search is complete, select your Carrier.

    • If you are getting a SIM error, try removing and reinserting your SIM card or having it replaced.
    • If you are unable to connect to the network, try resetting your network settings:
      • Go to Settings > Backup & Reset > Reset network settings.

Then go to Settings > Backup & Reset > Factory Data Reset. Read the warning message and follow the onscreen prompts to confirm the factory restore.
