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 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 LG Vu today decided to say "Insert Smartchip" and I only have the "emergency" button available. I have tunred it around and around, and nothing works, any other ideas?

I had mine in upside down and that caused it to say insert smartchip.....could be a back sim card. If you have another phone test out the sim card in that phone or have your service provider help check the sim card

Dropped nokia phone on floor and there is a black X in the left corner. message says emergency calls only. Screen is fine and I checked the sim card is fine too. Help!

Hi yogadebbie,
"Emergancy calls only" usually means there is no network coverage.

1. Turn phone off.
2. Take sim card out.
3. Leave phone off for 60mins
4. Insert sim card back into phone and turn the phone on.

If this doesnt work, you can contact your network for more information.

Hope this helps :)

I purchased an unlock phone from China the phone was to work on my network with ATT, however when I put my sim card in it, It says in sert sim card, I can get to the menu screens but it will not let me...

Your phone is locked to ATT network. Every company does that to restrict you from getting any other network. When you insert another sim of another network, your phone gets network lock.
You have to call the current network provider to unlock you from their network. Regards, Biswa.

Emergency calls only and not showing service provider

sounds like either your sim card isnt inserted correctly, or the slots arent turned on. sim card slot 2 is the slot closest to the phone, gold chip faces up, sim card slot one is slightly elevetaed off the phone, gold chip faces down. make sure it is inserted all the way down. perss fimly. then go to SETTINGS>DUAL SIM SETTINGS>DUAL SIM OPEN>CLICK OK. This opens up both sim card slots. after you find out which slot you are going to use, you can repeat these steps and only have opened the one you are using.
