Why does my phone say emergency calls only when I have a good internet signal


Hi @davidw.6ybbqw,

Generally, this is a sign that cell coverage is inadequate to make a call other than an emergency call. Despite the message, are you able to make WiFi calls? If so, other than being annoying, the message doesn’t mean much beyond inadequate cell signal. If not, please let us know which phone you have.

@davidw.6ybbqwthis , this seems to be a common question heard repeatably here. When/where do you see this?

I only see it on my pattern unlock screen which would be the norm.
