Question about Dual Electronics CECT P168 Cellular Phone

CECT P168 No Service

I just bought the CECTP168 touch screen phone, but the service is not working. I called my carrier, At&t, but they aren't familiar with this phone. I requested to talk to their tier 3 support, which do know about this phone, but they never got back to me. What should I do? The phone cannot call out.

I) first ask the service provider(AT&T) whether they are supporting china mobiles, since some service provider are not supporting china mobiles(since all china mobile ar having same IME code), this is making some china mobile to banned in some countries....

Thankin you

How can i data unlock my cect iphone

CECT phones are always unlocked. However, your particular CECT phone may use different frequncies than what your cell carrier uses.
Think of if this way, your CECT phone works like a FM radio. Your phone might use 800mhz for making phone calls, and 2100Mhz for surfing the internet. But your carrier (T-Mobile, Orange, AT&T, etc) might using 800Mhz for phone calls and 1900Mhz for surfing the internet. If this is the case, you will not be able to use that phone on that carrier for data. Sorry.

Unlocking CECTP168

Well if your phone company is At&t and your phone is asking for a SIM1 PUK number you need to call into the compant and ask them for the code, you've probably entered a wrong code 3 times and now it's locking your phone (Hoooray! It happened to me)..They will provide you with the code, and then you'll need to change it and save it somewhere safe, write it in a diary, on a book mark, on your battery, etc..Without it you won't be able to access your phone. You CAN NOT take this security setting off your phone. It's here to stay now. Good luck!
