Iphone 5 Stuck in "Searching..."

For the past 2 days, my iphone 5 has been stuck on "Searching"....I ve tried restarting, force reset, removing the sims card, turning on/off airplane mode and resetting the settings and ive had nooooo luck!!! Any idea what I can do??

When I look up the general settings under network, it says "not available"

This is so annoying!

A phone with no service is no phone at all! What zip code are you located in right now? Are any other VZW phones having this issue? Are you able to connect to wifi? Please check the version of the phone: go to settings >> general  >> about >> version.
