Note 3 crashing on start menu

Okay, my Note 3 is crashing and reseting itself immediately after it turns on and I try to tap something. I can not make it past the home menu or use virtually any app seeing as it resets itself immediately.

So I have Lineage OS 14.1. with 7.1.1. Android installed, and it had random reboots throughout the day. 5-10 at most.

The phone has been well kept, virtually no falls or damage throughout the years.

Water has not been on or in it as far as I am aware, it did not even overheat(normal temperature).

It has a brand new memory card and battery to boot.

However unlikely, I am aware that it could be a hardware problem because it's been running succesfully for four years under different software.

Also, the Lineage OS has not been very trustworthy since the hardware can take anything I usually throw at it(processor and RAM stats imply this) and it randomly reboots, turns off my bluetooth, wifi, or just resets while I am casually using one app.

I've tried giving you all the info I know of at the moment. So, if you know of anything that might help here, I would be very grateful :)

Is this a good question?

Did you boot into recovery and perform a factory reset / clear cache and data when you updated Lineage?

Are you getting daily builds or old stale ones?

Solved with recovery mode. Also, I rooted the phone and flashed the stock 5.0.back.

So now, I have a "no sim card problem".

How does one solve this?

Thank you

Did you do a factory reset in recovery after flashing the stock Samsung firmware?

Check if IMEI and baseband version is displayed under settings.
