Hi I have a p500lgc and it keeps saying "emergency call only", what can I do with this? I tried taking out the sim and restarting it.

go to settings->wireless and networks, make sure flight mode is unchecked, then tap mobile networks, make sure network mode is set to Auto and Use only 2G networks is not checked. then tap network operators and search networks. There should be one that says Koodo. Tap on it.

Likely the phone is set to 2G only, and since Koodo doesn't run on a 2G network it won't work like that.

You can check that by going to settings - wireless & networks - mobile networks and then disable "Use only 2G networks" if it's enabled.

You can try doing a factory reset by following these steps:
• Take out battery, memory card and SIM
• Put battery back in phone (DO NOT TURN ON)
• Hold down the POWER/LOCK Key + HOME KEY + DOWN VOLUME KEY for approx 10 seconds until phone starts to come on. Release the buttons as the phone comes on.
• Phone will reset as it comes on.

but most likely the phone is shot and will have to be replaced.
NOTE: EVEN IF IT WORKS, A FACTORY RESET WILL WIPE ALL DATA FROM YOUR PHONE.

Was it working before? When did you get the phone?
