Well I droped my phone battery in the water and I switched to a samsung and I put everything in right and everytime I try to send a message It would say network service not avalible and it hass all the...

You're right - the fact that the phone will perform emergency calling means that the cell
phone is operable as a phone - but the phone thinks that its a phone without a EIN, since
its not reading its SIM card.
Its therefore, not registering into you cellular provider's network as you (your EIN), but as
a "generic" phone - which are given access to cellular networks for just one function - 911 calls.

Have placed my sim card in the phone and it will only allow emergency calls

Does the sim card match the carrier of the device? If so how old is the device and carrier. You may require a new SIM card. They can and will occasionally go bad causing a SIM read error or emergency calls only.

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

Only emergency calls on my unlocked CECT i68 3g phone.

This phone is a POS.  Sounds like it can't read the SIM card, and therefore only 911 calls are available.
