Emergency calls only? No Wifi

The other day my phone said I could only make emergency calls… Why?

Also I had no wifi however it wouldn’t connect me to 3g.

From what you describe you were in an area with neither native nor roaming coverage. In cases like that the phones are designed to connect to any compatible tower when 911 is dialed. For example, when my T-mobile signal disappears my phone connects to an AT&T tower that is not a roaming partner. My phone can only make 911 calls using that tower.
