Keep receiving no sim card installed message

I've had my iPhone 7 for about 3 months. All was fine...until today. I keep receiving "No SIM card installed" every so often. I've tried all existing troubleshooting steps:

- airplane mode on/off

- shutdown/restart

- reseat SIM card

- check for carrier and OS updates

It's the oddest thing - it works for a while, then it doesn't for a while. Cycle keeps repeating. I've also noticed that my cellular connection no longer connects to LTE (display just says "Verizon" instead of "LTE"). Related to SIM card? Maybe.
