Try another card ..this is the case only when the network is not available ....or incompatible ... if it doesn't say insert sim card ..means that it sees the sim and the contacts are ok ... so ...it might be a problem that your provider do not has covering in that zone ... and the phone only has access to the emergency (free ) services on that area ...this is an agreement between most networks to provide signal for whatever sim ...might be ...for calls like 911 ...etc...

Check first if the phone is locked to a different phone network. With emergency calls only, you get the signal regardless if it is your network or not and allows you to access it but with limitations.

I have sciphone i68 but it does not work on 3g sim card what i should do?


You need to get a non-3g sim card, or get a 3g phone. Only the very latest Chinese mobile phones are 3g compliant, as China (apparently) does not have a 3g network as yet. Unfortunatley you can't modify the sim card or the phone to fix this problem.

How do i set up my sciphone i68+ with tmobile, i only have the sim card. And no manual, bought phone on ebay.It's saying emergency calls only


Ask at chinamanuals.com - send them your provider and country and they will come back with the settings. They also have a i68 manual for download (which includes some settings).

I searched and found that for you, pls leave a good rating.

Hi my sciphone has worked realy well for 3 weeks went to make a call the other morning and got the message your phone has a block on it emergancy calls only


This means that either the sim card has become dislodged (try re-inserting the sim card)
Alternatively, you will need to call your phone company to investigate. Have your sim card number and details ready, as they will probably need those details.
Best of luck

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!

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.
