I have the same phone. I have had that same problem before. What i did to fix it was to take a blowdryer (on the cool setting -not warm or hot) and take the battery out and blow the phone with it. The reason it says carkit is because moisture got into the phone somehow. Mine first started saying carkit when my friend dunked my phone in a cup of water. I hope this helps you with your phone. Also if the blowdryer doesnt work then try using a can of pressurized air.

Take a tiny screw driver or something like it and with it short out pins in the connection port on the left. The phone should then turn off. I had to do this a number of times and finally got car kit to turn off. Hope this works for you it did for me!

Car kit mode activated


I found this on another site, it worked like a charm... roll a VERY THIN piece of aluminum foil, and slide it (almost jiggle it) in the POWER SLOT. I tried it and it worked . Apparently saliva, water or anything liquid will make the connection to activate the phone into the 'car kit mode', so the aluminum foil acts as a conductor and switches your phone out of car kit mode...

Peace
