This is for another similar clone marked with the "vaio" name but it might be useful to someone out there. I found that by following solution one above (thanks Mrfixit) to step 6 as below and then following the second part of what I found at http://chinamobiles.org/archive/index.php/t-16088.html worked for me. I reproduce the steps below:

1. make sure to have 2 sims in phone(do not use 3g sims) 2. make sure wlan is disabled 3. enter engineer mode (type in *#3646633# 4.scroll up not down to number 10 RF test tool 5.choose gsm touch ok verify ok touch power scan 6.select band dcs 1800 press ok phone will go to test looking for DES(frequencies) wait until phone crashes or seems inactive

BUT THEN

Connect your mobile via USB cable to a PC, DO NOT CONFIRM any connection mode at your mobile, just and ONLY connect the cable!!!

11. Press the Menu button (second from the left, the one with the seven small dots on it) until you are at the main menu with the 12 icons on the display.

12. Go to "Settings" --> "Network Setup" --> "SIM1 network setup"

13. Go to "Preferred mode" and choose "GSM preferred" or "GSM only"

14. The mobile will switch to your selection, but the message that it will stays on display. Do not press anything else, just wait for about 10 - 15 seconds.

15. Disconnect the USB cable from the phone, it will show you that it has switched to your selection.

16. Get back to main menu, switch off and restart the mobile --> DONE

Jdrimorin - did you ever get it fixed.

this is actually a known bug - check your Network Setup > SIM1 network setup > Preferred mode settings. You may be stuck in "WLAN only". When you select any other option the phone states "mode switching" and then "unfinished".

For some reason this prevents outgoing calls "not allowed to dial" and I have seen some mention of a software fix - not sure how to get it though.

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

It sounds like your phone is locked to a provider.
this phone should come unlocked but if your change the software or let the battery die all the way it may have locked itself again.
try http://forum.gsmhosting.com if may be easier to find an unlock solution

I need to block certain extensions from being able to dial long distance


Best way to do that is to sit down with the manual and look at programs 400-408. At a minimum, if you restrict 1 and 0 in a table and assign it to your extensons in 405, those phones can't dial long distance. That's fairly worthless in today's calling climate when some carriers let you dial just 10 digits or you have to dial 1 for any local call outside your area code. 404 lets you build 8 tables of 10 number sequences each for restriction and 407 lets you build 8 tables of 10 number sequences for allow. For example You could put 1 HOLD HOLD HOLD (hold is the wildcard) in one table and entry of 404 with traditional dialing and that would restrict all 1+ long distance. Then, in 407 5 of your entries in one table would be 1800, 1888, 1877, 1866 and 1855 to allow toll free calling. These tables get assigned to extensions in programs 405 and 408. A simple restriction (ie local calls only, internal calls only) get assigned in 401. There are some other tricks and, above all, remember that you have to keep 911 availabe for access and allowing 0 is never a good idea because 0 alone will get the operator and that defeats the purpose of toll restriction.

Other tricks involve custom CLASS codes. You need to account for the clever worker who dial *67. That gives them second dial tone and they can dial the world. It would be easy if you could block first digit *, but you ought to allow *57 for nuisance call trace. If you have the above where long distance is dialed with only 10 digits, then you can always start with HOLD HOLD HOLD in a table and allow 911 and the local area code in an allow table. The table digits can be up to 12 so you may have to go to 6 digit screening in allow tables for local exchanges. In my area, we have 10 digit dialing and 419352 419353 419354 (among others) along with 567213 are local calls. If I were programming a customer 6 miles to the North, there would be extensive programming in both area codes.

Outside of that, it's just a function of analyzing your local calls, area codes, how a call is dialed, and building your tables. We do this with billing by the hour :-)

Can we make it so the phone can receive calls but not make out going calls?


You can, but you need access to Installer level programming. I'm not going to give you detailed instructions here, because any fool can do the reverse and UNrestrict a phone with the same instructions, but system program 500 and 501 sets day and night restrictions on a phone. Setting the COS to 7 lets the phone dial 0, intercom, and, by programming, System speed dial numbers.
COS 8 allows Operator only (internal operator).

By building tables, you can actually program different restrictions and exceptions for COS 2-6. There's a fairly comprehensive discussion in the Panasonic Features Manual of your TD 816/1232 manual.

How do i block local calls, mobile, as well as int'l calls from kxt7730, im using kxt824.i have 8 digtal extensions. i need to open from 101ext to allow local and mobile. thanks


When you get out the Features Manual, look and review Toll Restriction (TRS). You set the Class of Service on a phone to something other than 1 and then build tables 2-5 to restrict or allow certain digits. The Programming Manual (notably 302-305 and 306 being the exceptions) contains the data, the FM the instructions.

I have a starplus sp7050-02 I am having trouble with forwarding calls. my phone company started a new program last week. I used to dial 72# and the phone would automatically transfer to the answering...


That's an easy one....sort of. If you have a DHS manual, you'll have to go into your restriction tables and allow *72 on whatever phone you are using, or better yet, put it into speed dialing where it is not subject to dialing restrictions. The reason for restricting * in the first place is because you can use other telco features like *82 and dial the world. It keeps your users from finding ways around toll restrictions. When * is required, you have to specifically allow *72 and *73.

How to block "0" for international calling and mobile calling in our office phone panasonic model no kx-t7730x


As was pointed out to me, you could take a screwdriver and pry the 0 key off the tone pads :-)

Panasonic systems restrict calls by tables called Toll Restriction (TRS). It's a complete section in the installation and programming manual. It involves setting tables, usually in the 302-306 area, then picking a class of service for the phone that acts on the numbers dialed.

In the simplest systems, the TA series, you have 20 restrictions per class 2-5 and one 80 entry exception table. It's a little tricky to set up in that a COS-2 extension has all the restrictions in COS-2 tables, but a COS-5 extension has all the restrictions in COS-2,3,4, and 5 :-)

Your Pana installer can do this fairly quickly, but if you plan on doing it yourself, please read the TRS examples carefully.

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
Disable WLAN.
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!
