When I insert my SIM card it is telling showing words...illegal use then shut off?

How can I reset factory using codes

It's possible that the SIM itself is the issue, so resetting your device to factory default settings might not work. Try inserting a different SIM into your phone and seeing if your device still has difficulty functioning. If it does, try completing a Factory Reset. You can find a guide for how to do so here: Perform a factory reset on Android Device. Lastly, if those two steps don't work, consider taking your device and SIM to your carrier and getting them to service your phone.
