If the phone is saying emergency calls only it is because you need a registered sim card from a cell provider. So you just have to go and have the phone activated at AT&T or whom ever you are going to use as your carrier.
Phone is horrible.... I've been fighting w/ it for a year!!! I get the "emergency calls only" EVERYDAY .... the only way to remove it & get phone working again is to turn off. I have also removed the battery, & cleaned the sims card several times, still no help!! I have already done a warranty exchange and problems are actually worse than before. I never had so many dropped calls or "emergency only" problems with any other phone. I have actually switched phones w/ my daughter & I am using my sims card in her phone (Sony Ericson slider) and have had absolutely no problems at all!!! I put her sims card in my (Sync SGH-A707) and guess what....... yeap... same problems as before!!! Go figure..... My advise is to Go trade it on another phone before your 30 days are up..... this phone is HORRIBLE!!!!
I also have a x426 from 2003 and it wont work with the new ATT sim cards either, This is because of the Cingular/ATT merger which created a new network. The older original ATT phone must be unlocked to use a sim card from the new merged network. Try calling ATT Mobility customer service and request the subsidy unlock code. They are required to give it to you upon request, but it takes several days usually to get the code. I know because I used to work at a ATT call center.
I've received the same error on a couple of occasions. Most times the problem has been fixed just turning off and then back on. If not, turn off, remove the battery for one or two minutes then replace and turn back on.
