S8 Can't make or recieve calls.

-I have internet.
-I can recieve and send text messages.
-When i go to make a call it just says dialling for 20-30sec and then hangs up.
-When someone tries to call me it goes straight to voicemail.
-Not sure if it's relavent but next to my reception bars it only ever says LTE, it never states 4G,3G,H or anything like that anymore.

-I have put my sim card in another phone and it works fine.
-I have put my other sim card in this phone and same issue.

-Not sure if it's relavent but It comes up with "Failed to read data. Check sim card and network connection" when i try to enter the "more settings" and "call barring" settings in the dialer settings.

I'm trying to avoid a full on reset. Any ideas???
