If the handset is blocked by network you will get an error Inactive sim, if u r getting emergency calls only try manual selection of network might resolve the issue.

"emergency calls only" will occassionally display on my alcatel cell phone.At that time I can't make other calls. What is wrong?


Emergency calls only is a symptom where a cellphone loses its registration to a valid network operator. It usually happens to me when I am in another country and the cellphone cannot locate valid operators. Looks like some telcos choose particular network partners. What I do is choose the network operator manually in the phone's setting.

If you are in your home country and this happens, it only tells you that you are out of coverage area and the phone is losing connection to your network operator. Maybe you are inside a building with thick walls which cause poor reception. You may try choosng an area where the symptom goes out.

Cant make calls emergency calls only


Hi there,
Well first of all you may try to contact your service provider for this issue by using some other phone. Most of the time the problem is due to the network coverage. Post comments if further you have the same issue.
Good Luck

I have three bars of reception but it still says emergency calls only on my Galaxy sii I live in Taree


This usually indicates that your Mobile phone provider does not have a network coverage in your area (note: in Country areas, limited network coverage is usually from Vodafone, 3 or Optus). To be on the safe side, make sure that you allow both 2G and 3G network access as 3G access is usually limited to larger cities/towns.

Check with your Mobile phone provider for both 2G and 3G coverage in your area.

Emergency calls are allowed from any Network even if your provider does not service a specific area.

Hope it helps.

New mobile but says emergency calls only etc sim.W890i


Sim fine?
But is this handset able to use your sim?
You say the phone is brand new so where did you get it?
Most new phones have software on them that only allows them to be used with ONE network.
So is this handset on your network or has it been "Unlocked" so that it can be used on any network?

To simplify:
If your handset was purchased from a mobile phone shop they would have told you which network it is on eg T mobile.
This means that if your Sim you wish to use in this handset is 02 it will not work in your shiny new handset. All it will allow you to do is "Emergency Calls"
Or maybe it was purchased from somewhere like ebay and NOT from a reputable trader.
This could mean that the phone has in fact been stolen and the owner has registered it as stolen to their network.
If this is the case the handset would be BLOCKED from accessing ANY network so again would give you the "Emergency Calls" only option.
If you are sure that your phone is brand new and legal you can always have it "Unlocked" so that your sim card WILL work in it.
Phone repair shops or phone unlockers will be able to "Unlock" this for you for a small fee.

Maybe not the information you really want to see but I have to tell you all possible reasons. SORRY!!!

SAMSUNG SGH-E250 puk blocked


Hi everyone

Every PUK code is unique so nobody can tell you your PUK number, but i will tell you what you can do!
1) If you still have your packet that your Sim Card came in, you should find your PUK number in there, if you don't have the packet, please read bellow.

2) You must get a phone that is on the same network as your phone and call the networks Customer Care and ask them for your PUK number, they will ask you for your phone number, then they will tell you your PUK number. Once you have done this, you will be able to reset your Pin number so you will be able to go into your phone again.

Please also remember to give me a good rating on my profile.

Kind regards

I have downloaded uploads for my W880i and now my Network is not working properly. All i manage to keep getting is the Emergancy Network Calls icon. Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanx


go to settings, scroll to the option called mobile networks, this will be selected on automatic, set it to manual and press ok, a list of networks will appear after a short time, what you need to do is select a network other than the one you are on (so select O2 if your on voda, etc) the handset will display an error message as it is locked to your home network, when this error message comes up repeat the manual roam procedure and select you home network as your normal one, this procedure should update and refresh your sim on the network and you should find you signal comes back, hope that helps.
