Hey,i just got mine yesterday and i experience the same thing but i figured out how to do it on my own.im a fourteen year old and was surprised that i got it but heres how you get it to work...

first, go to settings and hit dual sim settings.

second, theres gonna be four options theres:dual SIM open,only SIM1 open,only SIM 2 open,or flight mode.depending on what slot you put your sim card in thats the one youll choose,i put mine in the first slot so i hit only SIM1 open.\

next, you take the back off of your phone and double check that your sim card is in the correct slot.

then, put the back of your phone back on and turn your phone on.

finally,when it turns on your network should come up the the top where it used to say insert SIM1 or insert SIM2, and i have at&t so when i turned mine on single showed up at the top right under the little symbols at the top.

i hope this helped.

if not,i apologize lol

have a nice day(:

SOURCE: my sciphone i68 says emergency calls only when i try to use it

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!

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

My sim card doesnt work in my sciphone i68+


I see that this had been a while. The reason that your Sim cad doesn't work could be various: 1. Make sure that your phone is quad band, if it's a tri band then make sure that ATT works in 1900mhz. If it works only in 850 and your i68+ is a tri band, (which is not suppose to) then it will never work. As far as I know all i68+ original are quad band, some fakes i68+ are sold as quad band but are actually tri-band. 2. If you ATT sim card is a 3g card, it won't work either. These phones are not yet equip to work with 3g. I hope this clear up at least a little of your doubt with the Sciphone.

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.

Phone is a tri-band phone instead of a quad-band one. Will not work on ATT network in home area and many others due to many tri-band phones not being supported on the ATT 850mhz network.
