Check the phone carrier signal strength, if it is extremely low, then you may get that notification.
Next check your SIM card, try powering off the phone and reinserting it.
Try swapping it with another card to check, if you can. If the SIM card is not reading, then you may also get the emergency message.
If the phone works with an alternate card then you may have a faulty SIM card.
You either have to call customer service to get your phone disconnected from the network and put back on. In your case since you tried multiple phones with the same sim even though the sim is not locked, they will have to replace the one you have no since it is faulty
I was told to remove the battery and SIM card, wait three minutes then power up the phone again. (Time and Date have to be reset) Unfortunately this did not solve the problem so it could be a Vodafone network problem. I am wary of trying the SIM in a different brand or model of phone in case of an unexpected reformat occurring, so until a duplicate phone arrives the job is on hold. In general one just cannot get the right staff these days. Take care!
The sim card is the portion of the phone that has the instructions for the phone to connect to the mobile/cell phone network. If the phone has it's sim card removed it cannot connect to the mobile/cell phone network and cannot send or receive data such as calls, SMS messages and data connections.
there are several factors why you are unable to send and receive messages and make outgoing calls and receive incoming calls.
network issue: are you the only one experiencing the problem? try to check with someone who is on the same location and is using the same network as you if he or she is experiencing the same problem as you. if yes, then it may be a problem with your network.
make sure that you have good signal and contact your service provider too and ask them if they have an ongoing maintenance in the area and ask if the sms and calls services are activated on your account
phone issue: if you have a good signal and still can't send, receive text messages, do and receive incoming, outgoing calls, try to do these: call the service provider and ask for the default network pin, then go to the settings of your phone, call settings, call barring, deactivate all barring
try inserting your sim card to another phone and try to send an sms
turn off your phone, remove battery and sim card and then wait for a few seconds, then put back the sim and battery and turn on the phone then try to send an sms
