Samsung E720 Cell phone - 'Calls from this number are barred'
When trying to make a call - all I get is this message - '' calls from this number are barred'' - it used to work fine , so i must have done something by mistake. Also , I cannot access the menus under 'Network services' ie they are in faint writing - ie not accessable - these include : call barring , call waiting , network selection, caller ID, etc etc - all eccept the first one - 'call diverting' . How do I sort this ?

Call Barring - Enables you to restrict or bar certain or all types of calls to and from your mobile phone, i.e. outgoing calls, outgoing international calls, incoming calls. Barring is activated with a personal code.
Call barring is a mobile phone feature that allows the user to set certain prohibitions on incoming or outgoing calls. This is an effective means to prevent the phone being used to make expensive international or premium rate calls, particularly when the phone is to be used by people other than the subscriber.
Many companies that provide handsets for business use now employ call barring as a security measure, to control their use and restrict calls to pre-approved numbers. The user's personal code must be used to activate this feature.
How do I get it? Contact your local Service Provider. You will need a four digit barring code. Initially this will be 0000. You should create a personal barring code for security. Please consult your cellphone's instruction manual.
What does it cost? This service is free.
Also you can deactivate it from your cell phone.. Different cell phones have different setting functions,
You can try these out. It's the general way to deactivate call barring (NOKIA) .
Follow the below instruction:
Go to Menu, Enter settings, Scroll to Security, You will see call barring on that list, Click on it,and scroll to last option and you will see cancel call barring.
Your cell phone might not be the same with these functions,but the procedure are aways the same..
Re: above question - Samsung E720 cell phone - I am still getting same message when trying to make calls :- 'all calls from this number are barred' - How do I turn it off or unlock this call barring. . I recently bought the phone and dont have any codes etc. All the headings in the menu under 'Network Services' are in grey lettering instead of black , ie they are unaccessible, ie 'call barring' 'call waiting' 'network selection' etc etc. phone was working before , so it must be something straightforward right? Ian.
try this. The menu names may vary depending on the model or even service provider. look for a simmilarly meaning menu name
For missed calls, made calls or received calls Go to menu, call history, erase History, then click on whichever option you want to clear it. you can also clear all.
if you only want to erase just one entry go to call history, go to the category you want(missed, outgoing,incoming) then scroll to your particular one and click options, erase
Assuming you want to erase the recipients of txt messages, go as if you want to send a text(menu, messaging, send message, text message.) then on recent list, scroll and select your desired entry and press options, erase
