Question about Dual Electronics CECT P168 Cellular Phone
I recently bought an i9 cell and Iam already having problem. the slide to unlock feature will not work. the slide to unlock feature will appear for about half a second butwhen i try to "slide" it open it disappears. Is there a reset button somewhere on this type of phone or is there a"trick" to bypass this feature? If there is anyone that can help pleeeeeeaaase do. thank you
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:
Hope this works for you - GOOD LUCK!
PS - dunderground posted the following solution in Apr 2009:
"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."

Maybe you can reset the phone to the fabrik settings... in te menu with settings, anybody tryd it already or?
I'm trying to unlock the CECT I9 so that i can change the backgrounds etc. but with no succes already.
But just try to reset the phone in the phone settings menu.... if that dont work just get the battery out when the phone is on. that maybe works, else i dont know what the problem is, maybe then you can read the manual for reset the phone.
I dont have that problem, but if my phone is doing nothing any more, then i just get the battery out when the phone is still on, than restart your phone and than is the problem fixed.
I hope it works!

Once I power on the phone, I have to wait for several minutes before I try to open the screen. After a few minutes the slide works and I am able to slide between screens with no problem. Every click requires patience. This phone is slow to respond, but works well once you accept the fact that you have to wait. Don't try to rush, it will crash.
