Galaxy S3 Wont Send Texts Or Make Outgoing Calls

Hey guys got the galaxy s3 and for some annoying reason i cant send texts or make outgoing calls. My bill is up to date and i have tried restart and taking back off, remove sim etc when i go to make a call it says "you cannot make calls while call baring is on" the block isnt active in the settings and it just wont send messages. Tried connecting to network in settings and it is connected but in the 'about phone' section it says mobile network disconnected... can anyone help please Smiley Sad

You'll have to call CS as it sounds like there is a block on your SIM or account.
