Default Selected Network Unavailable after battery drain


Yesterday, my phone was working fine. The battery was on 1% so I plugged it in to charge. I taken it off charge and turned it on, and was greeted by the no signal icon. Then, signal came back but read "emergency calls only." Now, I can't connect to my network. I tried a Vodafone sim in it and it worked OK, but two Three sims failed to work. I tried my dad's and mine. The funny thing is, my sim works in my dads phone, as does his. So by all accounts it looks as though three had blocked my phone from their network, even though it's pay as you go. I phoned them but they told me they haven't blocked it and it should work OK. I haven't touched anything on it, I just charged it.

Do any of you guys have any idea what could be wrong? I thought maybe the hardware had failed, but like I say it connected to vodafone so this seems impossible.

I'm seriously puzzled. I've tried recovering the firmware through Kies to no avail.

I'm at my wits end. Thanks! (:

Might be sim lock, was the phone originally locked to vodaphone?
