    Whats going on I sent the information do you have anything for me to try ???

  • mikebarks326 Apr 14, 2011

    What is going on can you help me please talk to me ????

  • mikebarks326 Apr 15, 2011

    I change to flight mode, then power down, then power back up and it comes up in Fight mode, then I change to normal mode (only Sim 1 Open) , it the shows T-mobile where Wlan was. I try to use dial pad to dial out and I receive "Not allowed to Dial". So I do a Factory Reset and when it comes back up it is in Wlan only mode and I cannot dial out.

  • mikebarks326 Apr 15, 2011

    The other thing I do see is when I go to Network setup, then Sim1 netork setup, then go into Preferred Mode (shows WLan Only), then select GSM mode , ok I receive message "Unfinished" ?? What does that mean ? I cannot change out of WLan mode only

  • mikebarks326 Apr 16, 2011

    What is going on If you dont know how to fix tell me. I thought I would at least have something every day to try. I do not like paying for something and getting nothing in return. To me that is just a scam to collect money and that really sucks.

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

"not allowed to dial" problem

--> SOLVED :dance2:

Hello everybody, after playing arround for a while, collecting a lot of other information from the net, I got the problem solved with my phone:

01. Make sure two SIMs are online with good coverage, WLAN switched off.

02. Press the "call"-button and type in *#9646633#

03. The phone shows "Engineer mode" with a menu of 10 different items.

04. Go to No. 10 "RF test tool", using the up/down button at the left side of the mobile.

05. Choose "GSM"

06. A message shows up "Wifi....blabla", just confirm with OK

07. Choose "Power Scan"

08. Select your local GSM frequency (in my case DSC 1800 for Germany) and press OK.

09. The mobile will freeze now, because its adjusting itself. Leave it like this for about 2-3 minutes and wait !!!

10. 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. :smoke:

I hope my "weekend job" is helping a lot of other people to get rid of this annoying problem. Please bomb your supplier with emails, so maybe we do get a general solution to this problem. Next I will check why I do not get the "Opera Mini 3" working, maybe an update is necessary first.

M001 Phone when trying to make a call it says : NOT ALLOWED DIAL"


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

I am unable to change connection Network Setup > SIM1 network setup > Preferred mode I am stuck in "WLAN only". When I select "GSM" or "GSM preferred". The phone states "mode switching" and then...


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!
