Hi, thanks a lot for this blog, it is very useful. I have been trying to convert movies to play on my CECT p168+, following the tutorial on your website. However, I can play the movies on my computer, but when I transfer them on my cell, I have the sound but no image. Do you have any idea why?
thanks for your answer!

El Navegante said...

Don't know why it happens to you. I have the P168, not the plus, maybe that is the problem.
I just updated the post 'How to see videos on the Cect P168' and added another program to convert files.
Maybe that one will work for you.
Let me know.

Jim H said...

(CECT P168+)How do I lock the screen after I finish a phone call? I tried holding the softkey above the on/off button which didn't work and I don't have the lock symbol on top of my screen. If I try to put the phone in my holder before the screen shuts off, It accidentally pushes buttons. I have the screen set to shut off after 10 seconds so it's not too much of a hassel, but it would be better to be able to turn it off manually. Thanks in advance for any help!!

Lucy said...

Hi, thanks for the info. Is there any way to synchronise my outlook calendar on PC with phone calendar (CECT P168+) Cheers, lucy

El Navegante said...

Jim, i'm sorry to inform you that in this models is not possible to lock it manually or make it go to stand by.
You have to wait until it automatically gets off.

El Navegante said...

Lucy, you can export the address book from outlook to csv format and then import them with the software PhoneSuite.
To be able to connect to this software you need a Bluetooth connection in your computer.
This method will only allow you to import the name and the phone of the contact though.

Hi!
Where i can found games for

I recently purchased the CECT P168 online and am loving it. However, I am unable to download MMS. I have tried to configure my phone utilizing the instructions on this website but it still is saying that the GPRS is not subscribed. What am I doing wrong? Is it possible for someone to assist me with this.

John said...

Hello. I am very happy with my p168 but I would like to increase the phonebook to at least 1000. Is it possible? Thanks.

on the part where you put proxy address it will not let me put a 5 in it only will let 0,1,2 do you know why?

Anonymous said...

will not let me put proxy in for tmobile, usa.. it will all the way up to the number before last.. which is 5.. any help?

Jose said...

This blog is extremely helpfull on the phone!
Is there any way to mod the on screen keyboard to have both letters and numbers?
Thanks.

Navegante said...

Diana, is not possible to put extra games or any other apps in this phone, at least by now.
One of the problems is that it doesnt have JAVA.
There are many people looking for a way to write the firmware of the device with another one that can do that.
If a solution comes by i will post it for all.

Navegante said...

blkbutterfly83.
Please tell me your country and the company you are using so i can assist or get you another settings to try

Navegante said...

John, as far as i know the phone can hold 500 entries in the phonebook.
I don't think you could extend that maximum and i searched a little but there's nothing on the web that can bring hope to your desire.
Sorry

Navegante said...

In the proxy address you need to put a valid IP address. This are made by four numbers and each one should be from 0 to 255. That's why the first digit can't be 5, it should be 0, 1, or 2.
So you need to write 005 to put 5 on it.

Navegante said...

Till now is not possible to have a keyboard with letters and numbers at the same time, at least in the P168.
I know the P168+ has more keyboard languages, maybe it has that feature.
If someone knows please post a comment.

blkbutterfly83 said...

Navegante,
I'm in the US and I have T-mobile service.

Kathie Rose said...

Thank you for all of the helpful information on this blog. I created a message for startup, but it does not appear. Instead, directly under my provider name TMobile on the starup screen there is jibberish "Msisdn1" I am unable to get rid of this or to see the message I put in. Please help. Thanks.

Navegante said...

blkbutterfly83, send me your email address to cectp168re@gmail.com and we'll try different settings till we got it to work and then i will update the table for that company.

HELLO.. I CURRENTLY HAVE SUNCOM AND I NOTICED THAT IT DOES NOT APPEAR ON THE CHART, CAN ANYBODY TELL ME HOW TO SET UP THE INTERNET ON MY COMPANY??? ID REALLY APPRECIATE IT, MY E-MAIL IS MIKE20PR@HOTMAIL.COM PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

your website is very good it has helped me a lot with this phone. i was wondering; on your chart for getting MMS to work for tmobile you have the proxy 216.155.165.50. when i try to enter the last two digits(50) my phone keeps a default 2 in the first value that i cant write over, forcing me to keep three numbers at the end or having a 2 in front of the 50. why is this, can you please help me?

Navegante said...

The phone expects numbers of three digits from 0 to 255, that's why 5 can't be on the first one (it assumes is a 500 number).
You should write 050 instead of 50 to get it done.
I will update the charts to fix this.
Glad to hear you like my website.
Thank you.

Hi, I have the p168. It shuts itself on and off. When it is connected through the USB, it gives me the option of 'Mass Storage" or "Webcam'. If I try to pick one or do nothing, it shuts down and comes back on repeating the above process. Can you please help. Thanks

Johnson's Lady said...

Sorry, I need to add a little more information. When I hit 'ok', it says 'system not ready, please try again later'. Even after an hour or so.

The operating System is a MTK OS, a specific one for the MTK chips.
It's supposed to be built upon another OS called Nucleus.

Hi this site is great! I have the p168 and my wife has the a380i. I have t-mobile usa everything works sms mms and internet. if you read the instuction and take your time your phone will work. question is there a way to download a new browser to the phone and is there a way to delete factory ring tones. I have custom tones but unless i delete the crappy factory ones I can forget it.

Simon said...

for some unknown reason i cannot connect to anyone from just dialling out as you would do from a normal function. I know its a basic function but its strange, it says 'call ended' and i something about the 'service'. The phone used to call out, but since changing my internet settings so i can actually browse the internet ( which comes up but i do not see ANY pictures..any ideas on why that is? i have the show images option ON)..the phone will not connect wen i dial out. Now it did say that 'fax' might be configured but their is no call setup option to turn fax on or off, or it may be IP calling, which i read in the instructions, but yet again, i can't find that option. I even did a factory reset but no luck. My internet works, my text messaging works, just i cannot call anyone up..PLEASE HELP!

Jeroen said...

When I am working on a SMS message and notice a mistake, I tend to click in the screen where the mistake is, correct it and then when I click at the end of the message to continue , it almost always puts the cursor before the last character. And the only way to solve this that I have found so far, is to start over with a blank screen. Any tips?

Sabrina said...

I have had the Cect P168 for about 4 months but now it is shutting off randomly and will not turn back on. Also when I turn it on sometimes it will stay on for a while then it will shut off whenever I listen to music or when someone calls me... Any idea what might be wrong with it and how I can fix it??
Thanks!

i am having trouble witht the phone suite not wanting to see my phone. i have done everything i can think of but it will not see it. i have set my uart to usb and i have downloaded the mtk driver and the phone suite but when i try to chose the COM phone suite only has COM 1 and COM2. Other places have mentioned i need to be on COM5. any help?

Navegante said...

The Phone Suite only connects to the CECT P168 through a bluetooth connection. So you need a bluetooth dongle on your PC for this.

Could you either recommend some bluetooth headphones or tell me wich bluetooth profile the p168+ uses to help with my search for headphones? Thanks.

Navegante said...

The bluetooth earphones i am using are Jabra. These are very cool and work fine for me.
The cect p168 takes any bluetooth earphones because it is A2DP devices compatible.

Navegante said...

Once you have the internet settings running you need to go to 'Main Menu' - 'Entertainment' - 'Services' - 'WAP'

There you can go to the Homepage or enter a new address and add some bookmarks.

Although I enjoy this P168, it does not get as good reception as my other phone. Is there a setting that I need to activate such as selecting the band (850,900,1800,1900)??? Maybe just the built-in antenna is not as strong?

Hello.
I have a problem with my P168 and the Rogers Network.
I can make calls to any number, but seem to have problems receiving some calls. Phone seems to reboot when detecting the incoming call. According to Rogers 1)I should change my SIM card from type 4000 to a 3040. I have done this. 2)Perform a hard reset on the phone. How do I do this?

I also told Rogers that I used the sim card (Type 3040)from a Black Berry phone and everything was fine with the phone!

Is anyone having the same problem and is there a solution?

Please let me know. Thanks

Just need to post comments on UK T-mobile GPRS. It has taken me a week to figure it out and it is easy when you know how!

Got these from the carphonewarehouse, because the ones from T-mobile didn't work:

T-Mobile

Name tmobile gprs
Homepage http://wap.t-mobile.co.uk/
Access point general.t-mobile.uk
IP address 149.254.211.010
Username user
Password wap
Session type Continuous / permanent
Security Off
Data bearer GPRS
Authentication Normal
Port number 9201

NOW! The mistake I made was with the apn - general.t-mobile.uk

I entered general.t-mobile.co.uk
So remember omit.co and it should work fine.

I have a rather stupid question and it's actually aggravating me that I can not figure it out. I have the CECT P168++. For some reason the motion sensor is set to make the wallpaper randomly change everytime i shake the phone. I do not like the system wallpapers and it keeps cycling through them even after I have set one that I do like on the memory card. Is there a way to stop this or is there a way to delete the system wallpapers?

Hi can anyone help, I bought a CECT P168 a few days ago, (quad band and unlocked). It worked with my O2 sim at first, I then tried to used the Data cable to transfer my files, (which didn't work) and now the phone says "Sim Invalid". It won't accept any O2 sims but other network sims seem to work.

Hi if anyone is looking for free wallpapers for their Cert P168 then try www.zune-wallpapers.com click on the wallpaper to enlarge it, then right click it to save it to your computer. All you have to do to install it is, attach your phone using the data cable so it becomes a removable storage device, then drag the files from your computer to your images folder in your phone.

CECT P168 ******Please Help*****

Hi, I really appreciate this blog! There seems to be very few resources for CECT phones online.

My son just bought a CECT P168 phone yesterday, and after putting his AT&T sim card in and trying to activate the phone, he was able to use it. It took about an hour though.

Apparently he found an option or button called FAST SIM and when he pressed it the phone powered down and now it won't turn on!

Has anyone else run across this problem?

Also, do I need to call AT&T and have this phone activated to be able to use it?

This is frustrating, but I would like to be able to keep the phone instead of trying to return it.

you can email me at drewbru@comcast.net

thanks.

When you plug your phone in to the computer via the data cable, it becomes a storage device located in MY COMPUTER, click on the storage device icon and open the folder where you want your music to go. Open your computer music folder and simply drag your music files (MP3)from your computer to your phone, do exactly the same thing for wallpapers etc.

Finally a great webpage for the CECTp168 phone...well done!
My questions follow... Have other users experienced problems with battery life?
My phone will sometimes not allow charging from either the supplied charger or via my PC. Sometimes if you swap a battery over the phone will charge. Sometimes it won't. It's very frustrating, as is the poor battery life. Any ideas anyone? I actually went and ordered two more batteries for the damned thing from Ebay and the charge sequence is still problematic!

Is there a reset possiblity (with the buttons) because my p168c is in a loop situation - Boot - Shut down - Boot - ...?

I have recently bought a p168 . The phone worked great for about two weeks. Now everytime I recieve a call the phone will shut down then reboot. I can not recieve any phone calls on it which makes the phone useless. I am with rogers in canada Any help you could give me would be appreciated.

Thanks

Hi
I also have a P168 and it works fine thankfully. Im not into all of the techie things others try to do with phones however I cannot seem to get either of our laptops to detect the phone's presence when plugged either into the XP usb or the pc running vista.
The phone of course shows the screen of "webcam" or "mass storage device" when its plugged to our pc, but neither system detects it.
I do have the usb driver and program for the phone off the geek-asia site but cant use them anyhow without my computers detecting the phone plugged into them.
Whats up with that anyone?

Hello, I've got a cect p168 and I'v got a question.
when I want to access to mass storage I have to reboot and shut down for the mass storage. I want to know would it be possible to access to the mass storage when I don't reboot it, like other mobiles for example sony ericsson k800i.

Hi, when im calling my voice mail i have to enter my personal code... how can i make the number appears on my screen... thank you

Navegante said...

Max, that question is already answered in the F.A.Q.
This is the answer though:

* There is a little green icon at the bottom center of the screen while we are on an active call. If you touch it, the numeric keyboard will appear and then you can enter the desired number.

Sim invalid problem & solution --


Hi the solution is simple , after days of trawling the net for a solution i figured it out myself by ripping the receiver module to bits , the reason why you get invalid sim is because the phone cannot operate 2 simcards on the same frequency , i.e. o2 and vodafone (uk) both work on gsm 900 and you cannot use them together but if you use a t-mobile and a o2 or a t-mobile and vodafone they work fine because t-mobile works on 1900gsm !! , slight design flaw methinks!

Bradlykt said...

i have a small question, how do i get to the sms text message outbox?

javed said...

I just bought a P168 phone new version and am At&T SIM card. The card is brand new. When I put the card in the phone, it says Invalid SIM card. Is this because the SIM is not registered yet or some thing else is wrong? The SIM card has 8901 4104 first 8 digits and is a new 3G card.

Anonymous said...

I also have the same question about the sms outbox...how do I go back to it?

On the pamphlet, it mentions the sms outbox and not the drafts but on the phone, i saw the drafts and not outbox. But with that is, drafts only saves messages that are unable to send and not all the outgoing messages.

i have the same high speed problem as other people have in here. has anyone found out the answer? the ebay guy that sold it to me said it might be the battery so he is going to send me one.

Sushaanth said...

I was walking through the engineering mode and right below what I was changing was the setting for "High Speed SIM". My stylus must have touched that and the phone said "Shutdown in 3 seconds", turned itself off and now won't power up. Any idea how to get out of this?
pls send me a way to switch on the mobile.

Hello!

I use to be able to store up to 120+ text SMS messages on my cect 168 phone. For some reason, I have to empty/erase all from my inbox when there are nearly 23 sms text messages.

Why is this and how can I return the setting to store more?

Have you seen the "Draft" folder on the SMS menu?
Maybe there are messages there taking up memory.
