Question about Apple iPhone 3G Black Smartphone

6 Answers

I cannot make outgoing calls with my iphone.

I can send and receive texts, also i can receive calls but every time i try to call out it immediately says call ended then call failed. I have tried several things i have read online including changing the date and time settings under general and changing the "show my caller id" under phone settings. is there anything you can recommend? I have the newest 16 gig 3G iphone.

I have ran into this same problem with 2.2 on and iPhone 3G, sadly you will need to plug your phone into your computer and do a restore of the system software, I would go to 2.2.1 when you restore.

This IS a wireless carrier issue...contact your carrier's tech support (not general care, they are useless) for issue with making calls.  Alot of times there are issues with the carrier's towers (especially AT&T), and tech support can help you.
AT&T Tech Support direct line is 1-866-323-0746

I went to an AT&T store and they were clueless. They tried swapping out the sim card which did not work. I then went to a Apple store and they were also clueless as to why this was happening and just swapped out my phone. Obviously the new phone works fine and I just had to restore my backup files from itunes.

Or try to reset our iphone settings by doing the following:
Settings->General->Reset and then just selecting the thing you would like to reset..
If that doesn't work too you will have to restore your iphone from iTunes.. You might also want to backup your phone before restoring because you will loose all data.. To do this just right-click your iPhone in iTunes and select "Back Up"

Have you tried resetting by pressing the top button and the home button simutaneously for a few seconds?

I've also been told that if you turn it off for a few minutes and then back on it should be fine. I've had the same problem (Canada)

there are several factors why you are unable to send and receive messages and make outgoing calls and receive incoming calls.
network issue: are you the only one experiencing the problem? try to check with someone who is on the same location and is using the same network as you if he or she is experiencing the same problem as you. if yes, then it may be a problem with your network.
make sure that you have good signal and contact your service provider too and ask them if they have an ongoing maintenance in the area and ask if the sms and calls services are activated on your account
phone issue: if you have a good signal and still can't send, receive text messages, do and receive incoming, outgoing calls, try to do these: call the service provider and ask for the default network pin, then go to the settings of your phone, call settings, call barring, deactivate all barring
try inserting your sim card to another phone and try to send an sms
turn off your phone, remove battery and sim card and then wait for a few seconds, then put back the sim and battery and turn on the phone then try to send an sms
