'SOS only' when I got to Oz

I got to Oz on holiday last night, turned on my phone to call my brother and my phone showed SOS only where cellular reception bars usually show. I need this fixed and can ring the help desk! Can you?

@Waniz

Reading other theads from other sites the more common fixes are:-

 

- Turning Airplane mode on / off

- Making sure Service Provider (Under Settings) is on Automatic

- Doing a hard reset on phone (hold Home and Power till Apple logo appears)

- Turn phone off, remove sim for 5 mins and reinsert and turn phone back on.

 

That last one seems to be the most common fix around other sites

 

Or or it could be a locked phone meaning it has been restricted by software so that it can only be used with a single network or carrier. Locked mobile phones are usually GSM phones that use a SIM card
