Default Emergency Calls Only

I have been having an issue making calls on my phone. I have had this issue before, where I try to make a call on my phone and when I swipe the contact I want to call it will say "Emergency Calls Only" and it will not let me dial the number. It seems like if I don't reboot my phone for a few days this happens or if I am playing a game. When this issue happens I cannot recieve text messages or incoming calls either.

Either your SIM card is bad or the socket it sits in is bad. In either case, bring it back to the carrier and ask them to fix or replace the phone. It's still under warranty.

I went to the AT&T store today and had them replace the SIM card and this seems to have fixed the issue, however I lost all my contacts on my phone as I had them on my old SIM card and the guy there told me that they should all be backed up on my gmail account, as far as I am concerned they are not, so is there anyway I can get my contacts back, just frustrated that I lost all my numbers.

You have 3 places to put contacts - the SIM card, the phone and your gmail account. If they had been on your gmail account, which is where they should be, they'd still be there.

Putting contacxts on the SIM card is a holdover from the days when a) there was no gmail and b) it was very difficult transferring contacts from one phone to another. That way, when you got a new phone, you kept the old SIM and all your contacts. They should delete that choice entirely. These days you sync contacts to Google, so when you change phones you get your contacts almost immediately. (I was never a fan of cloud computing - it's a step back to the 70s - but in this case it's a "good thing".)
