On firmware version 1.36, if the "iptype" setting is set to the "modem" option, the phone will crash at bootup, showing "Booting.." on the LCD display. To fix this, you will have to boot the phone in safe-mode, and change the iptype setting out of 'modem'. To do this...

3.Then, while the power is turned off, press and hold the "#" key and then plug the power again.
4.The G668 LCD screen should show "Password", please key in "1234", then the "speaker -free button"
5.The screen will go to "network settings", please press "speaker -free button", and then it will show "iptype 3[modem]" or whatever in your setting.
6.Press "Local IP", the "iptype 3[modem]" will become "iptype _" (the underscore is the cursor)
7.Press "1" for dhcp or "0" for static ip (recommended to press "1" for DHCP for now) and then press "Redial button" three times to the "save settings" and then press "speaker-free buttorn"
8.The screen will show "save Are you sure?", please press "speaker-free buttorn" again. G668 will reboot and work normally.
