Either the siom is fauty try it out the other sim in the device and check out.also clean the area where the sim is inserted as the connectors are faulty which detects the sim clean that connectyor with dry tissue.also remove the battery and reinsert it and check out.
if nothing works and the device is new its quite advisable to replace the device as its a major software error in your device which will cost you much to get it repaired.

Hi!

Is the sim properly seated? Which provider's sim are you using?

Try turning your phone off and take out the battery from it.

    Is the sim activated? Try inserting the sim into slot 'b'.

How to detect the sim card i put?


I guess your phone has not been unlocked yet. Unlocked phones do not have any specific carrier software and work with all GSM carriers. These include T-Mobile, Cingular and AAAA . Multi-band unlocked phones also will work with carriers in other countries.So I guess you need to unlock your phone so that u can enjoy in your country.

Only emergency calls on my unlocked CECT i68 3g phone.


This phone is a POS.  Sounds like it can't read the SIM card, and therefore only 911 calls are available.

This phone is NOT 3G compatible (it's just it's name ...) if your Tmobile card is 3G it will not work. All CECT phones are factory unlocked !

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.
