It sounds like what happen is on most phones these days their is a SIM card installed under the battery pack. The SIM card is what allows your service to work. I think your SIM card got messed up for one reason or another. I suggest you contact your carrier and I suspect they will have to do some reprogramming of your SIM card over the phone or in some cases send you a new card in the mail to install.
