You need to call your phone service provider, as phone messaging settings depend on provider, call the customer service number enclosed in your documentation.

    If you do not want to call the service provider customer support number, you need to tell us your phone company's name and where you are located.

No sent box for text messaging


I have an I68 and have learned there is no sent box either. It works like this. When you send a text message you can go in settings and make it where it will give you a delivery report that the text was sent. Without that on is still easy. If the message does not send it will be posted in your "outbox". If there's nothing in your outbox then it was sent :P

If you have version 3 software there is no way that you can use mp3 or downloaded tones as message tones, best thing you can do is upgrade your firmware to version 4. Type this on the dial screen to check your version *#8375#

This phone is NOT 3G compatible (it's just it's name ...) if your Tmobile card is 3G it will not work. All CECT phones are factory unlocked !

When i receive messages on my i9 the number appears not name


I have the phone and have had the same problem. I found I have to add the "1" before the area code to all the saved contacts or at least the ones you use most and that should fix it... when the text message is received it has the "1" normally we don't save the number that way...

I have problems recieving mms messages on my cect i9!


It seems your phone does not have the required internet settings. Please call up the customer service of your service provider and ask for the settings that is required to go online and send/recieve MMS.

Free games for i9 phones


The CECT i9 and i68+ have JAVA. Unfortunately, most of the free JAVA games out there, are designed for keypad input. You will have to look for specifically "touch screen" apps and games. And among those, not all of them will work. I am afraid it's going to be "trial and error" for a while.

As for HOW to load the JAVA apps and games on your CECT i9, here's how:

On your computer, with the i9 plugged in with the USB cable, drag the JAR or JAD files into the "RECEIVED" folder. After you're finished with everything you want to add, disconnect the i9. Touch your DOCUMENTS button, then "memory card," then "received," you will see your JAR/JAD files listed. Touch the file you want to install. The next screen, choose INSTALL. It will bring you back to the menu choices of "phone" or "memory card." Choose PHONE and select YES. It should give you a message when it has successfully installed. Then exit out to the main screen, touch the JAVA button. Select "Installed Java Software" and you should be able to use your newly installed JAVA apps and games.

Hope that helps.
