I just had the same problem today. My Impression was working fine one minute and the next thing I know it went into "No SIM mode" and all I was able to do was make emergency 911 calls.

I went into the store and the representative took a look at it. He asked me if I had tried to change any passwords, etc. because apparently that can be a cause. In my case, however, it was just that my SIM card was so old that it kind of gave up and stopped working. I got it replaced (for free) and now it works like before.

I don't know if it can be fixed any other way, so my advice is to just take it in.

When i try to make calls on my samsung impression it says emergency calls only....

this is normally related to the sim card, i would normally recommend to take the sim card out, rub the contacts with an eraser to clean it off, and try putting it back in. if that does not work, i would recommend a sim card replacement.

Try to check the settings for your phone, or check your manual for more information. maybe you just accidentally change the setting for phone or sim card.

Samsung impression a877 lost password to unlock

A hard reset will clear everything out of the phone and reset your password. To perform a hard reset on a samsung take out the battery and removve the sim card and power on the phone. when it comes back on type in *2767*3855#. The phone will go thourgh a reset process and when it comes back on take the battery out again and put your sim card back in and power on. It should be completely cleared including the security password.
