Do you have a message on the display?

 

Is it your phone compatible with the fizz network? If your phone is for the Canadian market and the model newer than 2015 should be compatible

Is it possible that your phone is locked by your prvious provider?

Mine are only speculation, since I do not know your situation, but they are possible problemes

 

 

Do you have the possibility  to test the sim in an other phone?

Hello,. Please contcat the support to fix this.

@Daniel contact the support, you already inserted an other SIM card, therefore, you know how to do it :D,

then it seems that your card is defected

Take it out and try again. Sometimes in the sim card tray is not pushed all the way in then it does not detect the card. Also ensure you are using the right size card and that it is turned the right way. Those two should be obvious but just making sure.
