On the next screen you will be asked for your service provided, or in other words, whether your are on either a pre payed (speak easy on 02) or contract (bill pay) tariff.

Enter your selection and click [next]

Step 7:

Step 7

Following this you will see a screen similar to that shown below. Enter the Security measure digits as shown in the image and enter your mobile phone number. Note the country code is included here and is very important.

Typically you will drop the 0 from the beginning of your mobile number and simply add this to the country code number that is already present.

For example a mobile number of 0872122 will become +353872122 (with the irish country code). Your country code may differ.

At this point make sure your sim card is in your sciphone as you will soon be receiving a text message with your settings. Click on [order settings].

This actually works. :D  how do you then get the apps to work  on the sciphone :S

Hi all,

have just bought one of these new SCiphone i68s.   I liked the look of it but frankly I've probably bought the wrong phone because I don't intend to use it for email or games.
I am having some trouble though getting it to recognise my voicemail number.  I did manage ti get it working at one point, could dial into and listen to my voicemail, but can't now.  I keep getting a message to contact my customer services.  When I put the SIM card back into my old phone it works perfectly.  I'm on O2 (british) and no matter how many times a request settings, nothing comes back.  Can anyone help me set up my voicemail and keep it stable?  Thanks all in advance!

i dont see this page when i click on the link.
evengravy (author)  kkarv5 years ago
sorry guys it seems as if nokia have changed their site and removed the download settings option, possibly to prevent the setup of cheaper clones, i'll look around for alternative setup procedures asap
evengravy... I tried using your instructions on setting up the gprs but I too was unable to make it work. On the flipside, after some searching I found another post with instructions that worked for me. I have the sciphone which I'm using with T-mobile and It took me less than 10 min. to get my net and mms working. Here's the link http://en.allexperts.com/q/Cellular-Phones-2768/2009/5/sciphone-i68-6.htm Good luck guys!!!
hi do you happen to know how i do this on vodafone network plz as vodafone themselves were no help thanks
evengravy (author)  drunkinfish5 years ago
yea as i said nokia have removed this option from their site so it no longer works unfortunately, thanks for providing the alternate link for others drunkinfish

no probs guy
evengravy (author) 5 years ago
NOTE TO ALL!! this setup no longer works as nokia have changed their site, sorry, you guys can always contact your network customer services by phone and ask them to send the mms and gprs setting to your phone via text message, tell them the phone model is a NOKIA 2610.
How can you do this if you can't get online in the first place?? any ideas?
evengravy (author)  Angelicangellover5 years ago
I take it you mean you can't get online with the phone yes?

if this is so then you misunderstand, you need to go online with your PC, which i presume you can do since you left a comment here, follow the steps above and the settings will be text to your phone. simple.

you will not be able to go online with your phone until after you complete the steps above,

i hope this clears it up for you

any more questions give us a shout, it really is pretty easy though

does it cost money and is it for sci phone i68?
evengravy (author)  kkarv5 years ago
the setup does not cost anything, but you will obviously be charged when you go online with your phone though. this is for the sciphone i68 yes.
it worked for me and i have the sci phone i68. and its free.

The Nokia page seems to be different - there's no option to download settings.
