Sim Card Has Locked

I purchased new phone from Virgin Mobile Website, LG Stylo 3.  Once the phone arrived and I tried activating the phone and I kept getting an error saying "the sim card has locked please power cycle the device to fix." I tried that and continued to get teh error so I contacted customer service.  Customer service said I needed a new Sim card.  They sent me  a new sim card, but the wrong model sim card was sent.  I went to a Sprint Store for a SIM card because the original SIM card said Sprint on it.  They gave me a 3-1 SIM kit. I tried one of those SIM cards, but I am still getting the same error.  

 

Is this a SIM card issue or a phone issue?  Please Help!

Hello there, @Scottbvirgo! Sorry about that. Does the SIM card ask you for a code, PUK code? Please provide us more info so we can better help.

I am having the same issue with the LG Stylo 3. Even tried my SIM from my Stylo 2 and it's still locked. It just pops up saying that the sim card is locked. It has no place for a PUK code.
