Question [Q] Phone dialing but wont ever connect to call, full bars

Guys i desperately need some help...i have tried everything i can try....My S3 I747 is having a very weird problem, i am currently using straight talk...i am able to make calls with full bars indicating but all the phone says is Dialing it will not connect to the person i am calling, i have tried different roms, downgrading baseband, upgrading baseband...i finally just ended up with 4.4.2 stock rom with root, and still the same problem, the phone is unlocked as far as i know and it does detect the sim card this is my first post on XDA, but have been a user for years....PLEASE help!

Also it says AT&T in top left corner never HOME, i have had this phone for a year now, and it just started doing this out of the blue...

Has anyone else had this problem?...

my brother has my old s3 i747(rooted, CM10.2) and is on straight talk. took hours on the phone with them to get it set up. for some unexplained reason, they told him to never enable wifi(?).
anyway, did you check settings>wireless>more>mobile networks>APN,and make sure straight talk box is checked? just an idea.
good luck

err on the side of kindness

yeah i have tried 4 different Straight Talk APNs and none of them fixed the problem, the crazy thing is, is the phone was working great till last monday after using it for a year and then bam it starts doing this, i thought that the sim card was maybe to old or just stopped working, so i bought a new one, and that still didnt fix it...

my brothers phone does off the wall stuff also. sometimes wont connect to internet, random extreme battery drain,....
i hate to suggest it, but maybe call straight talk??? sorry, had to throw it out there.
cleared dalvik and cache after flashing? sometimes reflasing will fix an issue.(make backup!!!!!)
