Emergency Calls Only

When I try to make calls with my phone, it displays the message "emergency calls only." I've tried removing my SIM, my battery, but no luck. How can I solve this?

Hello, @swh971023,


Thank you for reaching out. If restarting your device didn't work, check to make sure it isn't in Airplane Mode. If that isn't the cause, you'll need to replace the SIM card at your neighborhood AT&T Store.


Have a great week.
