Emergancy Calls Only

Hi -- I have got "emergancy calls only" on my new LG X Screen.


I've tried rebooting, taking the sim out but nothing work.

Hi @smilely440 Could you check your network status here https://status.o2.co.uk/ If that's ok then it sounds as if your phone has been blocked.

Have you paid your bill?

Either way you need to contact customer services via this link. (Either borrow a landline or use live chat)

Re: Emergancy Calls Only

You say new LG so have you activated your sim?
If an upgrade you can use your old SIM card if it fits or do a sim swap here if not
