Samsung S3 Emergancy Calls Only

Phone stuck on emergency calls only. I don't know how to get past it. I'm pretty confident that the account is up to date. Was fine when I last locked the screen. Battery has been removed for more than 2 minutes as one user suggested. I took the SIM out & ensured it is seated correctly in the correct slot. No drop or water damage to the phone and the phone is fairly new (less than a month). Don't know what to try next?

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.

Looks like you need to insert a working sim for that phone. What I've noticed is when your phone doesn't have a working sim, it will say you can only make emergency calls. I've tried it many times already. What do you think?

you can take the battery and the back off the device and place in completely submerged in a bag of white rice and leave it in there for 1 to 2 days this will help absorb the moisture, this should fix it if the water did not damage the circut boards if the water damaged the circut boards then the device is fried

Your phone must be locked to a certain operator. If you can fid which one, you might be able to get the unlock codes from them.

Allows emergency calls only


Is subscription paid up to date?
Check that your Sim Card is in place?
Get a hold of your provider.
Another person suggests:You might be set on the wrong network type. In my area O2 doesn't have a 3G (CDMA) mask so my galaxy S3 automatically switches to a network that does for "Emergency Calls" - which means your on another providers network just you can only make emergency calls.
What I have to do is force my galaxy S3 into GSM (2G) networks. So then it will connect to O2 mask and I can text/phone as normal.
Go to Settings, More Settings, Mobile Networks > Network Mode. Click GSM. See if that helps. If it does then go to "GSM/WCDMA Auto"
If not then you may not have any of your providers network masks nearby (go to another location to check this). Or the provider is having problems (check their website status page). I don't think a factory settings would help

I have a samsung s3 gt-i9300 i cant make or get


Your Samsung Galaxy S3 must be restricted to some specific network. That is why it allows only emergency calls when a SIM card from some other network is inserted in. You need to unlock your Samsung Galaxy S3 to make it work with all SIM cards. You can unlock your Samsung Galaxy S3 safer and easier using unlock code. You can get the accurate unlock code for a Samsung Galaxy S3 from Unlock-Zone.com at affordable cost. Good luck.

Samsung galaxy y says emergancy calls only?


Usually when GSM phones go into emergency calls only mode its one of two things. The SIM card can no longer be read or has become damaged or the network as deactivated the ESID preventing it from registering. Its also possible that its "roamed" onto an ajacent network which doesn't support your device or has no roaming agreement with your home carrier. You can reboot and clear this condition (typically)

You can go to http://www.numberingplans.com/?page=analysis&sub=imeinr and input your IMEI number to see if you've been blocked. If thats the case you need to be talking to o2 about getting it reinstated.

My Sci phone 68i will not pick up a signal.


If you are trying to dial in only one place and it is reading emergency calls only that means you are not getting signal. Mine stays on emergency calls only while in the house using a T-mobile sim card. I don't get very good signal here. Try it in other places and see if you catch signal. If it's stuck on emergency only make sure the slot is turned on under dual sim settings in settings. If it still doesnt work I'd send the thing back :P
