Can't register on a network

I got my phone (Samsung A5) not even 2 days ago and it is telling me my sim card is not registered. So I went to my settings to change that and I got 3 available networks (Koodo, EXT and Bell) and all of them say "Your sim card does not allow a connection to this network". I have also tried to select automatically but it just tells me unable to connect, try later.

Guess I just had to restart the phone. Not impressed with having problems this early on though.

This can happen with any phone, on any carrier. They are basically mini computers. They need sleep just like we do.
