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

    I have the same problem. The unlock function gave up after two days!!! Is there anybody who has a solution besides throwing away the phone?



  • kristalynnd1 Feb 10, 2009

    I'm having this problem too only the screen saver appears so fast that i dont get a chance to slide it to unlock. i've had this phone for like 2 months no problems then today it started this, i've changed batteries, charged it, left it off, still nothing. it'll accept incomming calls but i can't call out.

    There are touch screen calibration instructions on the inside of the battery cover, but they will not work for me.

  • otislafayett Apr 05, 2009

    Incoming call and it pops up "slide to unlock"? Many times by the time you are able to actually do the slide it's too late. How do you turn off this "feature"?

  • Anonymous Apr 14, 2009

    i have the same problem- the slide to open function stays on for a few seconds and then disappears before you can open the phone

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!

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.

You don´t need to install java. It is already installed.
Just put Java applications (jar files) into the Java folder and run them by double clicking.

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.
