Question about Dual Electronics CECT P168 Cellular Phone

3 Answers

Camera freezes entire phone.

This has been posted before by other users, but never really solved. I have the CECT P168 Ifone, better known as the iclone. Everything works great except, when you try to use the camera, it freezes the entire phone. You can't turn it off and you have to remove the battery and restart it to get it to work again. I actually really like this phone but would love to be able to use the camera. If anyone knows how to fix this or if anyone knows if it's unfixable. Please let me know.

I have the same problem. If you access the camera from the menu the phone freezes and you have to take the battery off. You can get around this and use your camera by pressing the shoot botton (c botton on the side you use to take pictures). This takes you to the camera immediately without having to go through the phone menu.

Regarding the previous solution, you might be able to flash i68 with the firmware of i9, but the P168 is a different brand than i68 and I don't think it is possible to flash it with i9 or i68. I would be glad if someone can prove me wrong!!

You should look into "Flashing" your I68 with I9 firmware. Use the below link and put camera freezes in the search. You are not alone. You will have to register. Its freee. Hope this helps.

CECT P168 iFone

It works off your carriers webservices and not the basic texting services. So in order to send/recieve picture messages you need to add internet.
