I was in 4.1.2 of Samsung Galaxy Note 2 which I unlocked using *#197328640# but today I updated to Kitkat Based DN3 ROM. It says "Emergency Calls Only"

Is there a solution out? How about unlocking? DO I have to buy a new IMEI or is it free?

Any help will be highly supportive. Thanks

  • Sounds to me like you just need to reactivate it. – IAmTheSquidward Aug 15 '14 at 17:01

  • What carrier are you using? – IAmTheSquidward Aug 15 '14 at 17:03
  • Its from the UK. My brother got me.I am really not sure. Is there a way to check? – tika Aug 15 '14 at 17:04
  • So you don't have it on a carrier yet? – IAmTheSquidward Aug 15 '14 at 17:05

If you want to have any cellular functions apart from placing emergency calls, you have to have an actual cellular plan through a carrier.

Picture it this way: If you buy a land line phone for your house, take it out of the box, program speed dials, and set it on your table without plugging it into a phone line, you won't be able to receive any phone calls. Your cell phone is simply a tablet until you activate a cellular plan through your carrier for it.

Also, the ability to place emergency calls is a feature on all cell phones that is not dependent on carriers.

Here is a list of UK Carriers.
