Question about Dual Electronics CECT P168 Cellular Phone
Guys I had the same problem with the k599 Sciphone and none of the solutions found on the internet helped me. New chinese models tend to restart after testing is over and this results in turning the wifi application on. So I spent many hours on thinking how to bypass this function and this morning I woke up with an idea that really worked!! The steps are quite similar with the ones followed to debug older models:
put 2 chips on cell
1-enter in factory mode *#3646633#
2-go to RF Test Tool
3-choose GSM, confirm OK!
4-go to Power scan
5-Select Band DCS1800 click OK
6-the cell frozen
7-wait for 3 minutes testing
8-while testing connect to a pc using the USB cable (do NOT select ANY of the options appearing on the cell screen)
9-Click the CENTER button of the cell until you go back to principal menu
10-go to settings/network settings and choose GSM Preferred or any other option (except WLAN only!!)
In this way the cell does not reboot, and the wifi application stays off, so the option can now be changed...
Hope this helps!

Not allowed to dial bug fix
1.make sure have 2 sims in phone
3.enter factory mode ( key in *#3646633#
4.go to RF tool test (use keys on side of phone and scroll up not down takes you from number 1 to number 10)
5.select gsm (press ok at message)
6.go to power scan (press ok)
7.select band dcs 1800 (ok)
**phone goes to screen checking options to des with**
**when the phone seems to of stopped responding press the main button(centre)**
*phone will go off**
8.turn on phone
9.try to make a call
**if phone say its in airport mode you've cracked it**
10.press settings and go to network setup
11.select sim1 network setup
13.select gsm prefered(ok)
**try to make a call**
not allowed to dial is gone
15.go back in settings
16.select restore factory settings(pass 1122 by default)
when phone restarts you can now set all you're personal stuff back up and enable wlan and will be able to make calls on either sims.
**I tried this last night and it didnt seem to work so I tried again this morning and now its fine with any sim I choose**
one last note ....DO NOT for any reason ever select wlan only or gsm only again..
not clear on anything email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Perhaps you can try entering "Engineer Mode"
Then modify some settings, see what happens.

Try to see if your F003 Settings > Network Setup > SIM1 network setup > Preferred mode
If it is in WLAN only try changing to GSM preferred, if appears a message "Unfinished" see if you SIM card is 64kb and try putting a 128kb SIM card and changing the Network Setup to GSM preferred, then turn off and on, and reset your configurations to factory mode.
Settings > Restore factory settings
The code is 1122.
Hope that this help you.
