is there any possible way that they can't change my plan? I usually have the 50 dollar one, I have the 25$ plan and another $25 on there or will I have to wait till the 25 plan runs out?

No service means there's no coverage in your area, not that there's no minutes

In general your phone might say no service because you've accidentally activated 2G Only mode or you've set network selection to manual instead of automatic. Check those settings and see that they are correct.

It could be a faulty SIM. Go to a kiosk and see if they have another one for you to test out. If it works, then you know your old SIM is faulty. If not, then I feel like the SIM reader in your phone could be malfunctioning and I recommend sending it out for repair.
