We had the same problem on both of our new sciphones. After long hours of research we finally found an easy solution to it so hope this helps.

1) Shut down your phone completely (you will know because a red sign will come up on your phone and you have to confirm that you are shutting it down).

2) Take our your battery and then your sim card

3) Make sure that your sim card is in the right way. (It has to be on the highest slot, not the one closest to the bottomof the phone, and the metal plates have to be facing down, or towards the phone).

4) Reinsert your battery and then start your phone up again

5) Go to restore factory settings and plug in the code 1122 when it asks for one. NOTE: Your phone will reboot, and when it turns on it should be okay.

We tried everything and this is the only thing that worked. We had t-mobile sim cards for both phones and it worked fine. Good luck!

Hi there...

Your SIM card most likely isn't sitting in its place properly.
When this happens, the phone only allows emergency calls.

Open it up, remove the SIM card, and place it again making sure it's in right.

Good luck!

Hey I have a problem, my chineese iphone 4- when i try to call it makes a message: " not allowed do dial" and I can't change my prefferred mode from WLAN only to GSM only.. how to fix it?...


Not Allowed to Dial Error Message on a SciPhone i68 4Gsciphone-i68-4g.pngI recently purchased a SciPhone 4G with a dual sim card phone. I was very happy with this phone. I had no problems until one day I couldn't call out. I kept getting a not allowed to dial message every time I tried to call anyone.
I could still receive calls and send and receive texts but I couldn't call out. After quite a bit of research on the internet I came up with a solution. None of the solutions available had all the information I needed I just kept trying different combinations until it worked.
Here is the step by step solution I used to remove the "not allowed to dial" message and allow me to dial out again.
  1. turn off the phone
  2. place 2 sims on the phone
  3. restart the phone
  4. keep the WLAN disabled
  5. enter the engineering mode * # 82043036 #
  6. select the option RF Test Tool (on my phone it's option 13)
  7. Select GSM, to accept him
  8. go to Power scan
  9. go to Band Select and select OK DCS1800
  10. another screen will appear (model F003) look at each of the options until you find one that will have your phone appear unresponsive (this locked)
  11. pressing the main button (the box) will take you to the home screen
  12. go to the setup menu
  13. go to network settings menu SIM1
  14. this is a preferred mode
  15. select one of the preferred modes GSM or WILAN
  16. restart the phone and you should be ready to make calls
sciphone-i68-4g.jpgYou just enter the code/s into the phone number area in the dial section and the phone will recognize it and enter into the proper mode.
I still love this phone. It has built in WIFI so I can surf the internet with out having to have a data plan from my service provider. I use T-Mobile.
Here are the particulars on my SciPhone:
Mode: i68 Quad Band Phone
Specifications:
  • Dual SIM
  • Dual Standby
  • WiFi
  • Bluetooth

Most of these I68 SCIPHONES have the same imei number, and alot of these are being blocked. So dont be suprised if you wake up one morning and it doesnt work.
