Hi there

First my dad's smart prime phone got the 'Restricted access changed. Data service is blocked' message which meant he could not text. I turned the phone off then on and it said 'emergency calls only' but then coverage was restored. This was in Levin. Then on my phone (the same as my dads) I got that message. I turned it off then on but it wouldn't leave me alone. This was in Levin, and also in the areas north of Levin as we drove. Eventually I was able to text again.

What is that message? Is it because there are too many people on the network in that area? Or something?

Stevie

What is the usual cause for such a message? Or is it a bit complicated with a number of factors?
