SOURCE: new mobile but says emergency calls only etc sim.W890i

Sim fine?
But is this handset able to use your sim?
You say the phone is brand new so where did you get it?
Most new phones have software on them that only allows them to be used with ONE network.
So is this handset on your network or has it been "Unlocked" so that it can be used on any network?

To simplify:
If your handset was purchased from a mobile phone shop they would have told you which network it is on eg T mobile.
This means that if your Sim you wish to use in this handset is 02 it will not work in your shiny new handset. All it will allow you to do is "Emergency Calls"
Or maybe it was purchased from somewhere like ebay and NOT from a reputable trader.
This could mean that the phone has in fact been stolen and the owner has registered it as stolen to their network.
If this is the case the handset would be BLOCKED from accessing ANY network so again would give you the "Emergency Calls" only option.
If you are sure that your phone is brand new and legal you can always have it "Unlocked" so that your sim card WILL work in it.
Phone repair shops or phone unlockers will be able to "Unlock" this for you for a small fee.

Maybe not the information you really want to see but I have to tell you all possible reasons. SORRY!!!

How do get my phone off of emergency call


This is a normal behavior when a phone does not have a valid/working SIM card. Without a valid/working SIM card or even without a SIM card, the phone can still be used for emergency call.

I hope it helps.

My nokia n900 acts like there is no SIM-card present. I get a message on the screen saying: "All telephony functions, including emergency calls, are disabled due to a communication error. To recover...


Sounds pretty serious.
If you have the Nokia PC suite, you can use this to try to restore the phone's operating system.
Go to the Nokia website and donwload it for free.
The instructions are in the software as a walk-through.
You will need the Nokia USB connector cable to do this.

I get "Emergency calls only"


These are the troubleshooting and resolution steps for customers who see "Emergency Calls Only" or similar messages on their wireless phones. This message normally indicates that the customer lacks a wireless service provider/account or the device/SIM is not recognized.

  1. Power-cycle the device.
    1. Power off the phone. While the SIM card is out of the device, clean the SIM card contacts by following these additional steps:
      1. Gently wipe the SIM with a soft cloth.
      2. Clean the gold contacts on the SIM card using a pencil eraser.
      3. Carefully remove all eraser residues from the SIM card.
      4. Carefully replace the SIM card back into its cavity.
      5. Check for Liquid damage; refer to Liquid Damage Indicator (LDI) Log.
      6. Once the SIM card is secure, replace the battery and back cover and power on the phone.
  2. Place an outbound call.
  3. If the test call is successful, end the call.
  4. If the test call is not successful and it is possible, test the SIM card in another known working device.
    • To ensure accurate results, the test device must be the same technology as the device in question (UMTS, GSM, etc).
    • Ensure the test device is the same type of device (smartphone to smartphone, non-smartphone to non-smartphone).
  5. If the test call is successful with the SIM in a different phone,
  6. If the test call is not successful, the SIM needs to be replaced. Or you can call at&t so they can give you a free sim card. it depends on the situation.
( i hope i answer your question )

Sos appears on the screen


What kind of phone are you using? It is probably a GSM and you don't have the sim card in it or the sim is not properly installed. Until the phone can read the sim card, you can only make emergency calls.
