This morning when I woke up I saw my samsung galaxy s4 was saying "emergency calls only". I've tried reseting my phone a few times and I've removed the battery a couple of times. I paid my bill and no one else seems to have this problem. Help?

It may be a problem with the SIM card. If it's not working or registering correctly, you'd likely see the emergency calls only indicator. Try taking the SIM out carefully, reboot the phone, put it back in, and reboot again.
