Emergency calls only

My husband has a Samsung phone and has been working just fine up until Thursday evening. For some reason it went into emergency calls only mode and I do not know how to get it out. I have made sure the sim card is inserted properly and tried resetting the phone. Other than that I am clueless on how to to fix this.
Thanks
