Restoring an iPhone when it is not able to connect to a network is dangerous, that is why every iPhone needs to be activated after a restore in order to be able to use it again. If an iPhone is restored and the No Service issue remains, it will end up being completely unusable, meaning the user will not be able to do anything with said device. It simply won’t work anymore.

In case a user has a backup phone and is willing to risk his iPhone for the sake of solving the problem, the act of restoring an iPhone could solve the issue, but it is not guaranteed that it will. For that reason, restoring an iPhone is not highly recommended.


=====================

A guy at work retired and I was to inherit his iPhone but instead of bringing the phone in so we could transfer his number/data to a new phone, he went to WalMart and bought a new phone and they did the transfer there. Took the old phone to Verizon and transferred my old number to the phone, but it wasn't getting service so they swapped out the SIM card and that didn't help so at some point they did a factory restore. Now, why on earth should that logical process brick the phone? So, anyway, now I have 2 bricked iphones. So I guess Charlie gets one to use as an iPod Touch.
 

TL;DR: My mistake was buying an iPhone. 
 

My celly is over 4 yrs old. Samsung  Galaxy S5. Time for a new one and don't want another Samsung. Was leaning towards an iPhone. I may go Huawei now.
 
I've opted on the OnePlus 7 Pro.

I had a Huawei. When I replaced the battery it started loading a bunch of software but nothing I could see. I don't really have anything to hide from the Chinese, but I'm suspicious and it pissed me off. Like my samsung
