Introduction: Sciphone I68 GPRS + MMS Setup All Countries Foolproof

The sciphone i68+ is a very good clone of the ever popular iphone at a cut down price

This instructable will show you how to easily set up the GPRS and MMS settings on your sciphone i68 so that you can send and recieve picture messages and surf the internet.

Step 1: Go to Nokia Site

step 1

Go to nokia site

You should see a screen like shown below.

Scroll down and Click on the green [Download standard settings] button.

Read the disclaimer and accept to continue.

Step 2:

step 2

You should click next until you see the screen shown below.

Input the Phone Model as Nokia 2610 and click [next]

Step 3:

Step 3

The next screen will show three options as shown in the image.:

WAP/GPRS,
MMS,
Internet

We will need to complete this complete process three times all together, one for each of these settings, for now though; just select WAP/GPRS

Step 4:

step 4

On this screen select your country from the drop down list, I have selected Ireland but yours will vary,

click [next]

Step 5:

step 5

Select your mobile network operator on this screen, I have selected 02, and yours may vary.

click [next]

Step 6:

step 6

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].

Step 8:

Step 8

Follow on until you reach this screen and: Make sure you take note of the pin number highlighted in red.

When you receive this information by text message click the icon that appears on the sciphone screen to open then click [install] at the bottom left corner. You should be prompted for a pin, enter the pin that was noted in this step.

NOTE: sometimes the message disappears before it asks for a pin and does not save to your phone, in this case repeat all steps again, it only takes a moment.

NOTE: sometimes it takes up to an hour to receive the text message with your information, be patient. Finally save the settings and repeat this process for the other settings: MMS, Internet.

Leave this window open and once the settings have been saved to your sciphone click [order another setting] at the bottom of this window. This will take you back to the screen displaying the settings options (Step 3) repeat steps 3 to 8 again with the other two settings: MMS and Internet.

Enjoy your sciphone!

    Ask Vodaphone customer services to TEXT the GPRS and MMS settings to your phone via SMS,

    IMPORTANT: tell them the phone is a nokia 2610. These setting work for sciphone.

    Tried the site drunkinfish suggested, but the settings for the internet etc still do not work. Stupid phone, wish I'd never bought it.

    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!

    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!!!
