As far as I know there are two possibilities to get this error message.One is poor signal of that respective network for which you just need to switch OFF and ON your mobile and the mobile will be able to receive the signal from near by tower.You may also get this error message when you are trying to insert a sim other than which the mobile is locked to.To solve this problem you need to unlock the phone from that particular network or use the same sim to which the mobile is locked to.To unlock your phone you can get unlock code from any vendors online like http://www.wickedunlock.com/supported-phones/rs5wp7/

SOURCE: sidekick 3

1. Insert your non-TMobile sim card 2. The phone display says "Enter the code". 3. On your Sidkick, press the "X" button. 4. You will see the menu. 5. Choose the left-up angle button. 6. Choose "setting"--->"network"--->"scan and select manually". 7. The phone will search for your network. 8. When your Sidekick finds your network, you can use the phone to make calls

with other sim cards you cant use data services...t-mobile uses different type of connection from other companies

SOURCE: i bought a sidekick 3 off ebay but it is still locked to the previous owner's sim card number

I had the same problem with the sidekick i bought off of ebay , when you cal customer care just tell them you got it off ebay and you need the old users information deleted, they will give you step by step instructions on how to do so. Remember to not call on your sidekick becasue you will have to restart the phone.

1. Your sim card is not in the right position. Take out your battery and your sim card. Make sure it is in the right position. Also make sure no dust or dirt where the sim card goes. Put the sim card back in your phone and battery. Turn it on. See if the insert sim card goes away.

2. If it goes not, then you will need a new sim card. Go to your local service provider store to get a new one.

My motorola ZN5 PHone showing Emergency call only- what can i do now kinldy help me...


This happens when no sim-card is inserted or your carrier's network is not available. Try to check the sim-card contacts or put it into another phone and see whether it works there. If the sim-card is defective you generally can exchange it for free in the nearest office of your wireless-carrier.
When the phone says "emergency calls only" it means that the phone has found a network, but it can not register in it due to the problems described above. For emergency calls network registration is not required, it is made for so you could call 911 even without any sim-card installed.

My sciphone wont turn off emergency calls only and i cant make any calls


It's a bit confusing the way you have to put the SIM in hence the reason why it says emergency calls only. Here's how to put the SIM in, the trimmed triangle doesn't have to go inside as you would think.

I unlocked a verizon blackberry 9630, once i put my tmobile sim card in it, it lets me send n recieve texts and recieve calls but it doesnt let me make call it say emergency calls only, how can i fix this?


Turn the phone off, count to 5, then turn it back on. It should find the nearest tower for a signal. A bad SIM card won't do this either like one person said. He/she was lied to at the store or by Customer Service. I used to work for AT&T Wireless & this Emergency Only issue was a big one. A bad SIM card won't allow you to place or receive calls or text messages. T-Mobile runs on the GSM network like Cingular/AT&T does. Just remember to turn the phone off for 5 seconds, then turn it back on. Here is the code to reset...*2767*3855# If this is helpful to you, please rate it....

I just bought Samsung SGH-x426 without a SIM card. When I enter #9999# it displays "Emergency calls only" I want to be able to enter some codes.


A hard reset will clear everything out of the phone and reset your password.

To perform a hard reset on a Samsung Phone:

1) Take out the battery and remove the SIM card.

2) Put the battery back in and power on the phone. (Important: Leave the SIM card out of the phone for right now.)

3) When your phone comes back on, type in *2767*3855# .

4) The phone will go through a reset process.

5) When it comes back on - turn the phone off and take the battery out again.

6) Now, put your SIM card back in your phone and turn it on.

Your phone should be completely cleared including the security password.

I turn on my LG Shine cell phone and no matter


Turn off the phone. Take the battery and Sim Card out. Make sure there is no dust or dirt of where the Sim Card goes. Blow air (from your mouth) of where the Sim Card goes. Sometimes rubbing a soft pencil eraser on the Sim Card contact points can help. Then place the Sim Card back in the phone. Make sure it is in the right position; copper contacts facing downward. Put the battery back in your phone. Turn it on, and see if the smartchip rejected goes away.

If not you may need to contact your Phone Provider’s Tech Support to troubleshoot and confirm that you may need a PUK reset code to register or you may need a new Sim Card, as they do fail from time to time.

I turn on my phone it goes to a screen saying Emergency Download


Wait does it say emergency mode only? If so this has happened to me many times on this phone.

Turn off the phone and remove the battery. In there will be you should see the SIM card. Pull out the SIM and put it back in. Put back the battery and turn on your phone.

For some reason on these phones the SIM card gets dislodged. When it does the phone won't work because the SIM card is what makes the phone your number etc. All cell phones, that have no service otherwise will be able to call 911. Apparently it is a law, so that is why your phone is on emergency mode. Without the SIM card the phone is a phone without service and will therefore only work in emergency mode.

I hope this is what you meant.

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
