Outgoing calls Barred

I've tried to call Australia, get a message saying 'outgoing calls barred'. Samsung Galaxy S2, billpay. All call barring options in my phone are disabled, need a password to change anything, I don't have the password. Spoke to 'Eddie' on livechat, who says he cannot help, that there are is no barring on my phone, and I have to go instore. There obviously is barring. I have seen others with an identical problem, solved by this forum. Can somebody assist with this, or give a reason why only instore can help?

Hi

I have checked your account and there are no bars on your account.

Are you able to call another international number in another country to test this further?

Found this online wirth a try....

1. Find Voice Call Settings (Applications->Settings->Call->Additional Settings->Call Barring-Voice Call

2. Select barring option

3. Disable all options. Uncheck them inluding International Calls.



Exit and make international calls.

Hi Lisa,

 

I have just tried to call a UK number, and have the same problem. 2 messages display: 'Conditional call forwarding active', then 'outgoing calls barred'.

 

Thanks.

Re: Outgoing calls Barred

Hi, when you go to enable international calls on your phone settings and it requests a password can you try 00000000 ( 8 x 0) which is the default security code on a Samsung?

Fiona - just tried, the password input will only allow 4 digits. I've tried 0000, 1111, 1234, the stock PIN which came with the phone, and my own PIN. No dice.

Re: Outgoing calls Barred

Did you create any sort of security code yourself on the phone at any stage?

Re: Outgoing calls Barred

I've just actually made a slight change to your account settings. Can you power off and on and try again?

Thanks

Have you manually tried to select different networks? Have you checked your phone settings to ensure there is no bar on your phone?

Re: Outgoing calls Barred

Yes ive tried different networks. Call barring settings "All outgoing calls" will not deselect in the settings section. Think there's a settings issue on my O2 account, could you check on your side?
