I9 cect


When you first get it or if you change it to factory settings it will do this until you change the pen calibration. Just keep working at it its just not very sensitive till you do that. I had the same problem but was able to get it so just keep working at it.

The silde to unlock will not unlock the i9 phone


Have you tried Calibrating your screen?
. There are 2 ways to get to the calibration screen. Please use the stylus to calibrate!
The fastest way is to be on the slide-lock screen & hold the side volume button in the Up position until
"Press volume down key to check" comes up onscreen. This may or may not work on all firmware versions
on the current i9, but works on most. Make sure to hold the button firmly in the Up position. You will first
see the normal volume speaker icon show onscreen and the volume rise, but just keep holding it Up, and
eventually you should see the pop-up box noted earlier. The moment you see that pop up onscreen,
immediately press the side volume button in the down position. A white calibration screen should now
show & you can calibrate the touch screen using the stylus. Try to tap as close to the center of the little
pulsating icons as possible, as this will more accurately calibrate your touch screen. If the calibration
screen didn't come up using that method, then you can get to it from the Main menu screen.
Select "Settings", then select "Pen calibration", & follow the previous instruction.



For full help topics I have a cd available for 10 us dollars. Has 100's of mp3 ring tones wallpapers, and java games and opera java browser. Guaranteed help on every question ever asked on these phones. And all settings for all cellular services. I have answered 100 questions with this CD. If interested contact prestorose@aol.com Pay Pal only, will send out First CLASS Mail in padded envelope. If interested I will send Pay-Pal invoice that can be filled out.

Slide to unlock Problem


Only thing I can think of mate. Is, take out the battery, SiCard and memory card for a while. Least a minute or 2. To see if it'll reset. Or try more troubleshooting. By just trying the phone with only the SIcard in and no memory and vice versa.

If doing all that and playing with or without the cards. And its still messin up. Then hate to say it. Its more likely the phone itself. I have 2 of these phones. I was lucky to buy in a cheap lot. So I have one as a spare. But I have no problem with them. Had em for a lil while.

See thing is, all these new gadjets coming out and so many knockoffs and clones. They make like a billion of these phones a month. So theres so many lil glitches,bugs ect etc. Thats why its best to wait a couple months before buying something new that comes out.

If your phone is a first gen. Then that can be the problem too. Best to get Second or Third gen. Make sure they fix most of the glitches.

Hope this works out for you. Check E-bay. If you need a new i9 or something. Selling like hotcakes and cheap!

Cect i9 slide to unlock will not open


THIS WORKED FOR US: Hold down the power button until you see the "CANCEL" icon; tap around the screen until the "CANCEL" button turns blue - this will take you back to the slide feature. MAKE NOTE OF WHERE THIS SPOT IS ON THE SCREEN. Repeat the "cancel-screentap" process to find a 2nd spot in another area of the screen. While on the "slide" screen, draw a line between the 2 spots; when you return again to the "slide" screen, the "slide" should work.

ONCE YOU HAVE OPENED THE PHONE do 2 things:
  1. RECALIBRATE the screen
  2. LENGTHEN the screen saver time-out to something other than the shortest time available.

Hope this works for you - GOOD LUCK!

I bought an i9 cell phone but now the side to unlock feature is not functioning, therefore I cant get inside the phone


Try doing a hard reset. You press the Home button and the Lock/Off button on top at the same time, you will see the off slider but keep pressing them until you see a gray apple. Then let GO. I hope this helps.
