    Exclamation Emergency Calls Only

    Day 2.5 with my galaxy. I have spent hours trying to get it working right. Latest is that it seems I can only make emergency calls....That message is at the top of my home page, on the pull down message, and when i phone myself from my home phone I go directly to voice mail. I have gone into settings, nothing there that would cause or change it back. Any one help with this one. I am ticking them off one by one, next is trying to sync music...but that can wait.

    Did this just start? Or have you never been able to make calls?

    I have figured this out after hours of frustration..........this device is appearing more like a beta product to me....my sim card some how became dislodged..........it might have been when i threw it out the window maybe.......(that is a joke)...Seriously seems more like a beta product to me. I am able to make a phone call, to check an email.......my computer does not recognize my phone, thinks its a camera.....I can not sync music....every feature I have tried so far has not worked. I do not have enough hours in a day to make this work. I may be venting here folks, but the internet is full of voices like mine. I discovered that while trying to fix my next problem....that is finding out how to get my computer to recognize the phone as a phone and not a camers. (SIGH)

    lol - hello again Rangerboots,

    Truely the SGS is being a pain in the neck for you. lol

    Firstly, download the official samsung software known as kies;
    CLICK HERE - Download and install

    Next, Sometimes theres problems with kies and usb drivers,
    CLICK HERE Download as a free user and install, continue with replacing existing drivers.

    Then connect your phone and kies should pick it up as a phone through kies as well as your home pc. allowing you to photo/audio/video sync, as well as other backup operations such as contacts/calendar backup.

    Thank you......there must some advantage to venting. It does give me new life and i discovered all that you have mentioned last night and did managed to sync some music. I will head back to that feature a little later just to be sure that it was not a sympathy gimme. But I have had to return to factory setting three times now and that is getting a little annoying. Anyway, progress is being make.

    WOW! 3x factory resetting! thats defiantly not good.
    I would personally give back the handset and ask for a new one to be honest, due to the problems your having, you should only have had to do the factory reset once, and if that didnt fix it, something is a miss!
    Could have just been a bad one you were given!
