Question about Samsung SGH-D500 Cellular Phone

D500 'Emergency calls only'

My Mum is in Spain and has tried to call me from her D500 but gets the message on screen 'emergency calls only'. She has used this phone a few times in the past from Spain, Tenerife etc and has had no problem. She is on Orange network and has loads of credit. I am worried as she is not too well and needs to keep in touch, I wonder if you could tell me how I could rectify this problem for her asap. Thanks so much, Denise.

    Thanks for responding - She has tried to ring my Aunt in Uk and has the same problem, she has full signal and has used this phone on orange network a few times before when she has been in Spain. I will try and get in touch with her and confirm that she actually does have full signal from her location and if not, will ask her to try and ring me from another place. Thanks - Denise.

The phone is not locked onto Orange network.
You may have to manually select it on the phone in Netwark Services Menu 9.5
You could go to an Orange network dealer in Spain for assistance

Problem, emergency screen accidentally turned on, won't go off, can't call out or receive calls


When you say "Emergency Screen", do you mean the dialer that you can access when your phone is behind the lockscreen? In that case, press the back button to exit. If you're restarting your device and are only able to make emergency calls, your SIM/RUIM card may be dislodged. Power down your device, remove it, and re-insert it before powering on again.

Phone not workig after emergency calls only message


"emergency calls only" means your SIM doesn't get connected to the phone or you have EEPROM code corrupted. No way to make it work on your own - get your device serviced at the local repair shop.
