Put it in recovery mode and restore it. You can't restore it the traditional way. You do this by doing the following

  • Plug in a data cable to a computer
  • Reset the iPhone by pressing and holding the power button and the home button until the screen goes black.
  • Once it's done with that, let go of the power button but keep holding the home button. It should kick it into recovery mode at this point.

this didn't help. Still says emergency calls only????


My phone was purchased in sept. Can I send it somewhere to get fixed?


You can check your devices warranty coverage here.

Hope this helps, I am puzzled as to why the restore did not fix this issue.
