Post [Q] SGS2 Cant text or call issue

Hi guys
I have a really annoying issue with my galaxy s2. It seems to be stuck on emergency calls only and will not let me send texts, call people, etc. I have tried everything- restore stock firmware, factory reset, repair apps and nothing has worked. My IMEI number is not null and it matches the one on my phones box. I dont know what else to try so any help would be very much appreciated

Carrier-side I reckon. Call them to ensure there's nothing at their end responsible. Given what you're already tried, and given your IMEI hasn't gone away, seems a bit curious you'd lose connectivity all of a sudden like that (unless it's a hardware issue).
If it's important enough to cause you grief if it's lost, back it up. No excuses
Trolling for thanks is lame
Does Samsung's auto-brightness implementation crap drive you to self-harm ? A solution !

If you don't know how to recover if things go wrong, what are you doing flashing custom roms ?

I checked and there is no carrier issue and it works fine in other phones

In case and if you're using stock firmware:
1. Boot into Recovery Mode
2. Perform a full factory reset by wiping /data partition.
3. Reboot and see if it fixes the problem
However, try and use a custom firmware in case your OS is causing the problem. When it comes to me, the hardware doesn't have to be necessarily damaged or affected in such a case since the phone app is on emergency calls, so it's fully accessible. I recommend checking the app settings again (maybe tapped on something accidently), but nevertheless, I prefer trying a custom Rom to verify that it's a software issue, or simply flash your stock firmware through ODIN to fix any issue if persisted.
