Cell phone won't power up

I was given a cect p168 . It did not have a battery or a charger. I purchased a battery and a charger however it only came as a car charger and or a usb cable. after leaving hooked up to my computer, the phone would not power up. Do you have to use two sims cards or just one? How can I find out if it is the phone or the battery?

I used to have this phone, and I purchased batteries like 3 times before I found out that I had an older model P168, and the newer model and the older model have two different batteries. But you cant tell by just looking at them. The positive and the negative charges on the newer batteries have switched sides than on the older batteries. (EX. Older +- Newer -+) But when you plug the phone in it should say its charging. If it doesnt say its charging, you might have this problem.

No you do not have to use two sim cards - you just have to change it to where only sim 1 is active. The charger cable is tricky - as it took me trial and error to figure out that the part that connects to the phone can attach either right side up or right side down, but it only charges one way. If necessary I would go to ebay and buy a travel ac charger. This is only the part that plugs into the wall. I take my battery out and place it in the wall charger and then plug it in. Hope this helps!!

CECT P168 - won't turn on

i would suggest contacting whom ever you got the phone from and return it. CECT's should work out of the box and especially with 2 batteries it should work with at least one. that tells me that there is something wrong with the phone all together
