New iPhone 8 plus not activating

I received my new phone yesterday, upgrading from an iPhone 5s, and attempted to activate it. I've tried upwards of 15 times to activate it and after being prompted to enter my account pin number the page goes to a new screen and will not stop loading. The phone has not activated, and I've now lost service on both of my phones so neither the old or the new phone has service.
