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!!!

Ifoe p168


I'm using a friends iFoe P168 Plus and yes, you can reset to manufacturers default settings. Go to "System", then "Settings" and finally, "Restore Factory Settings". Once you do that, the default code to unlock is 1122. If you still have the manual, which I found only partially helpful with this phone, it gives you the default code to unlock.

I cant receive text messages


hi there,
call the customer service of your service provider ( AT&T,Vodafone,Verizon etc)....they will set up message center number on your phone , the one that you have might be incorrect...your mobile operator will send you sim updates that will refresh the settings ....and then you will get the text message options
cheers

How do I get the internet to work with the iFoe p168


Hi there,

First you need to call your service provider, AT&T, Orange Etc. and ask the operator to send you the setting for GPRS/WAP. Once you receive the SMS Text message with the settings, just save it and you will be ready to start using the internet.

Thank you for using FixYa! Have a nice day and please remember to rate this solution.

Warm regards,
