IFOE P168C no service

I put the sim card in and keep getting no service message, the sim works in other phones and their sims dont work in the P168. I think its an antenna or reception issue but i have a second one which works fine?
any fixes?

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,

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


suggestions:
  • try inserting a new SIMcard of similar network, and if this work with your phone, secure a good signal.. then try sending a simple message.. then recieving a message..
  • try inserting a new SIMcard of different network, and if this work with your phone, secure a good signal.. then try sending a simple message.. then recieving a message..
  • if both/either this doesn't work, try getting back your original phone settings...
  • still doesnt work? have your phone serviced by a qualified cellphone technician..

Cect P168 not dectecting My sim Card


The "insert sim" error is a common error. Usually it is caused from putting the sim in incorrectly.

Try this. If this is the one with the sim card ports that are on top of eachother than put the sim card in the port closest to the phone with the gold side pointing up.

Insert battery, turn on phone.

On the phone, go to the main menu. Tap phone settings. Tap dual sim settings. Tap to open sim 2. Go back to the main screen.

If that does not resolve go back to phone settings, tap dual sim settings, tap to open sim 1, go back to the main screen.

If this is the type of phone with the sim card ports seperate, insert sim with gold side down in either port. Go to phone settings, tap dual sim settings, tap open dual sims. Go back to main screen.

If this problem persists than either the phone or the sim is defective. Test the sim by putting it in a phone that belongs to the carrier the sim came from. If it works in that phone it is not the sim.

Sim problem


hi the only thing you can try is clean the contacts on the phone and the sim card also you can pack a bit of paper on the back of the sim not the side with the contacts on it this will push the sim card down onto the contacts further hopefully getting it to work.
if it still dont work then check the sim card works in another phone or try putting a different sim card in and see if you get the same message if it still dont work then the sim card reader needs replacing you cant do this yourself as it requires soldering and to take the phone apart it needs to be done in certain order else you can warp the board and destroy the board completely
