Question about Dual Electronics CECT P168 Cellular Phone

2 Answers

Phone works but says "no service" iFOE Mod. # P168

I cannot use the phone for any phone servcies (texting, calling, receiving). it worked fine when I purchased. After a month or so, the phone said "No service" when I tried to call or text. I know the phone will work in my area and network because it did when I first started using. The AT&T stored does not know why it won't send / receive.

Please help

    thanks for trying. We ended up taking the phone to a repair shop. Evidently AT&T works on a triband and everyone else is on a quad. This phone, while advertised as an AT&T phone is not. It worked for a few weeks which confused us. AT&T users had been able to bounce off of TMobile signals but not anymore. AT&T cracked down on this and that is why it no longer works. Expensive lesson to learn!!!

"Check Operator Services" when sending a text


most probably you have disabled the CLI thing. In which your cell tries to prevent your number being shown to the person you are calling.
It is usually under Network settings, or Call settings (CLI/Show my number/Send my Number).

Phone wont send or recieve txts


On every phone there are settings that can stop you sending texts. However all phones should still receive texts even if all the settings were changed. As the text message is directed to you mobile number you should still be receiving?
When you compose your text and select contact does the phone move them to the out/sent box?
Settings to check for sending are your 'message centre number' (your network provider can supply and they are normally different for pay monthly and pay & go) 'Message sent as' should be 'text' (not fax or email etc).
Text problems are common where people change or delete digits from the message centre number by mistake.
If you cannot receive texts i would recommend speaking to your provider for help as it may be your account details at their end? (beyond your control). Hope that helps?

Won't send or receive text messages.


I had the same problem twice when I changed service on the phone, once when I asked to change from a fixed rate for 200 messages per month to pay-per-use and the second time when I changed phones out with the same number. They just turned off my text messaging and I had to call to have them reactivate it. Help this helps.
