    Angry emergency call removal from the screen

    This is second time when my screen locked phone was locked and it dialed 911 .Is there any way to remove that. On one of the forum i found below steps . Not sure if that worked or is there any other method


    1.Turn off Samsung Galaxy S3. 2.Press and hold down Volume Up + Home + Power buttons at the same time. 3.Release all buttons when you see SGS3 Logo. 4.Android system recovery will be loaded then. 5.Select wipe data/factory reset. (use Volume buttons to go up or down, select with Power button) 6.Select Yes delete all user data. 7.Finally, select reboot system now And that should reset your phone and get rid of the emergency calls only thingy.

    Usually if you are getting that on the lock screen it is a SIM card error... If you don't have a SIM installed it will do this... What carrier are you with? I believe the directions you posted where to solve the issue that some were having with the SIM not being read on the VZW version.... IF that is the case I would take it in to VZW and let them know you are having issues with the SIM card being read... It is a rather common issue and they will usually swap the SIM card right there and if that doesn't solve it they will get you a replacement phone.... You could also try powering down the phone taking the battery and all cards out let it sit for about 5 minutes, put it back together and power it back up.... See if that cures the issue...
