has anyone had a phone suddenly lose the ability to make calls and send texts while still being able to receive them?

I have an at&t Samsung galaxy s phone (its an android phone) and I can no longer call anyone or send texts even though I have signal....and can still receive everything. I'm going to at&t later today, but I want to know if this has happened to anyone else....

  • With my BlackBerry it happened after a software update. Some sort of bug or other. I was always having problems with that stupid phone.

  • I was worried about that...having to replace my phone. I just got it this past summer! And its not due to an unpaid bill...that happened once and I got a message telling me that my phone would be inactive until we paid the bill (and I couldn't receive calls or texts).
