emergency calls only

We have  lines on our account.  One of them started losing connection, saying emergency calls only.  Restarting the phone would help sometimes.  We bought a new SIM card.  That did not help.  Bought a new phone and put the SIM card in and it still occurs on that phone.  It seems to be related to the one number.  I have called customer support 5 times.  Still nothing seems to be fixing the problem.  The guy at the Cricket store said to cancel the line and get a new phone number.  I don’t want to change my number.


Can anyone help?

Hey @backhoe58 it might be the phone, not the SIM. If’s its an iPhone, you can take it to Apple & they’ll run a diagnostic check on it. If it’s still under warranty, they’ll replace it too. Otherwise, if you bought it from Cricket, you have a year warranty. Good luck!
