Questions and Answers

Why can't I call anyone on my Samsung Galaxy S5?

I have a Samsung Galaxy S5. Whenever I'm calling someone it says that you cannot make outgoing calls while call barring is on. Then I went to the voice call options and ensured that everything is disabled (it was already disabled actually) but when I press the barring type and enter the password 0000 it states that call barring is rejected. I tried changing the password which was successful. I changed it from 0000 to 1234, but when I pressed the barring type and entered the password 1234 it stated that call barring is rejected again. What's the problem even though everything seems right?

If you're unable to fully disable your phone's call barring feature using the steps in the guide below, your phone's software may be corrupt or having issues. This could be the result of a number of issues, including installing buggy applications onto your phone, but there are a couple of things you can try to do to fix this issue. First, restart your phone. Once your phone has booted back up, try to call someone again. If you're still having issues, turn your phone off, take the SIM card out, put it back in, and turn your phone on again and try once more. If you're having issues after that, your next step is to backup your data to your computer using Samsung Kies 3 and performing a Factory Reset by following the steps in this great VisiHow article. After the reset, try to call a number once again. If you're still having issues with call barring on your Samsung Galaxy S5, you will need to contact Samsung's customer support service to troubleshoot your device further with a customer service representative. Since you've already tried to fix your phone's software, your problem is likely being caused by a hardware malfunction. If the customer service representative is unable to resolve your issue over the phone, they will likely schedule a repair or replacement for you so you can get back to using your phone the way it was originally intended to be used.

I need to disable outgoing international call?

I use my Malaysian number in Ireland, and it's on the Three service provider. I cannot make outgoing call to any number. I forgot the password to disable it

First of all, enter the default passwords: "1111", "1234", and "0000". If none of these work, then enter your phone number at the Three web page to see information about your plan. You can also contact Three directly by writing them a request on the status of your international calls being barred.

If you have the international-call service from Three, and you do not remember the password, then you may need to hard-reset your Galaxy S4. Here is a tutorial on how to do that without losing data: "How to reset Samsung Galaxy S2-S4 and Note 2-3 without losing data".

It's actually the S6 I'm having problems with. How can I unbar my outgoing calls and messages?

I put in the PIN, and the phone says "Failed to read data: Call barring rejected"

  • First, do not enter the phone PIN. Enter default passwords instead: "0000", "1234", "1111", "6666", "1919", and the last four digits of your number.
  • Also, your carrier might have the default barring password and even bar your incoming calls and messages by deactivating corresponding services within your account.
  • Go to "Settings" > "Application Settings" > "Call". Set it to "by provider".
  • Go to "Settings" > "Call settings" > "Additional settings" > "Caller ID" > set to "Show number".
  • If none of these tips helped you, then you might opt for hard-resetting the smartphone.

Hello, I can make calls but when I use calling card to make calls in the UK.

By using any calling card to make calls in other country I can't make call by using calling card. I don't know why is that?

Your phone is not set up on their APN network. Also using a calling card will still use minutes on your phone plan. If you can connect to WiFi then ask where you purchased the phone card to help you with APN settings for the UK. Also some phones only work on one frequency that the UK may not have currently so your SIM will not recognize any available towers.

Manually go into your Network Settings and choose your carrier. You may have to select for a search to be run first to bring up the carrier. If this does not solve your problem then change the Network Mode to GSM. This can also be found in Network Settings. If still you are getting Emergency Calls only, hard reset your phone while you are at one of your Carriers flagship stores with them.

Why can't I phone anyone on my LG-p705 phone while I can receive incoming calls?

My phone isn't able to phone any one, and I tried to disable fixed dialing number and changed my pin number and restarted my phone but it doesn't work

Go into your Phone app settings to make sure that you did not select call barring or another option that blocks outgoing calls. If you have not made a payment on your phone plan, this is one of the first ways they restrict before they disable your phone entirely so see if there is an issue with your carrier if nothing is set in your phone to restrict outgoing calls.

Reboot the phone and have someone call you to see if you can hear them. If you can't then factory reset your device after you have gone into settings to see if call barring is also disabled. This should restore your factory settings to as they were before.
