Sim card showing an exclamation point - no service

I  had turned my phone off for a week.  When I turned it on again all my settings and apps had gone and the sim card icon has an exclamation mark next to it.  I have removed and reinstalled the sim, restarted the phone etc. without result. Any answers please?

Hi Peter,

What is your account's status? Is it active? Or did you perhaps forget to repay for the base plan?
Hi Mathieu,

Yes, my account is active and fully paid.  I fiddled with the phone again and I now have service and the exclamation mark has gone from the sim.  However, it still looks like the phone did a factory reset and I have lost all my settings.

Sounds odd! Did you previously back up your phone? If so, you can restore your settings from your last backup. Hope this helps 🙂
