FIRST OF ALL, NEVER EVER PLUG IT INTO THE COMPUTER WHILE ITS ON. ALWAYS TURN THE PHONE OFF BEFORE HAND. AS FAR AS YOUR COMPUTER NOT RECOGNIZING THE USB CABLE, IT MAY ACTUALLY BE YOUR COMPUTER. AFTER ALL IF IT WAS THE CABLE, YOUR PHONE WOULDN'T CHARGE SINCE IT IS THE SAME CABLE FOR CHARGING AND USB CONNECTIONS. MY COMPUTER HAS HAD TROUBLE SEVERAL TIMES WHEN PLUGGING IN NEW OR DIFFERENT DEVICES INTO THE PORT. TO CHECK THE USB PORT ON YOUR COMPUTER.... GO TO CONTROL PANEL, THEN DEVICE MANAGER. DOUBLE CLICK UNIVERSAL SERIAL BUS CONTROLLERS. IF ANY OF THEM ARENT WORKING PROPERLY THERE WILL BE A YELLOW TRIANGLE WITH AN EXCLAMTION POINT BESIDE THE UNFUNCTIONING USB. IF IT IS NOT FUNCTIONING YOU WILL HAVE TO UPDATE THE DRIVER. IF YOUR PORTS, DRIVERS ETC DONT SHOW THE YELLOW TRIANGLE, THEY ARE WORKING. TRY PLUGGING THE PHONE INTO A DIFFERENT PORT UNTIL YOU FIND ONE THAT WILL ACCEPT IT. I HAVE A LAPTOP AND MY PHONE ISNT RECOGNIZED IN THE SAME USB PORT (ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE COMPUTER) THAT I USE FOR MY PRINTER. I USE A DIFFERENT PORT FOR MY CELL PHONE. IF YOUR COMPUTER IS OLDER , THE USB PORT MAY NOT BE HIGH SPEED. OLDER COMPUTERS HAVE USB PORTS WITH A SPEED OF 1x OR A MIX OF PORTS WITH 1x AND 2.O (2.0 IS HIGHSPEED 1x IS NOT). I HOPE THIS HELPS!!!

I Have an Cect I9+ phone and i was wondering if i can put apps on it or not. i put it in to itunes but it came up with nothing. i downloaded some apps from itunes but nothing happened when i put them on...


The CECT I9 uses java, not the Iphone's os. You can put apps on it, but you will need to find "touchscreen java me" applications. When you plug your I9 it will show up with two external filesystem icons. You will just need to drag the .JAR files on to the external file system icon. MAKE SURE YOUR PHONE IS OFF WHEN YOU CONNECT IT TO THE COMPUTER. Then eject those two external filesystem icons. (external hdd icons in windows and mac) and go to the documents icon in the phone. Find the .JAR file and click it, then click option 1 which is install. After that you will be asked where to put the program either on the phone or your memory card. I suggest putting it on the memory card, because these phones don't have much space. Then you can access the program through the JAVA Icon on your phones desktop.

CECT i9 stopped communicating with PC


Is it the same computer you've always used? It could be the OS not recognizing your phone or a bad USB port, if it is the same computer, most likely it's your phone. Try doing a firmware update and see if that helps. You'll have to use a microSD adapter to save it to your card since the cable doesn't work.

My computer does not recognise my CECT i9 phone


Switch the phone on, then connect. You should have 3 options; Mass Storage, Webcam and PictBridge. Select Mass Storage. Depending on your system on your PC will connect immediately or maybe (older model) ask for driver. Driver for mass storage is 'generic' so will install automaticaly. After that go to 'my computer' and there will be 2 (!!!) new 'drives', the first one the external card on your phone, the second one the internal drive of your phone.

I9 phone does not recognize the USB connection with the computer


Plug in the phone while it is turned off. It should update the drivers. If that doesnt work turn off the phone and the computer. Plug the phone in to the computer and turn the computer back on.

GETTING PICS OFF MY I9 PHONE.


Try this. make sure your phone is turned off then plug the usb cable into both the phone and the computer. Next if a promtp screen doesnt come up on the computer asking which application you want to use go to your start menu on your computer. Then go to your My Computer, look for Removable disk K, click on that and it should show the folders in your phone, then right click or left click to do what you want to do with the contents of the folder.

Youneed to plug in the phone to the computer while the computer is off. Leave it plugged in, then turn on your computer. This will load the drivers from the phone needed for the computer to recognize it....

I want to load Games on to my cect i9 touch screen phone, can you


I'm sorry to say that that guy is wrong because the CECT i9 does have java depending on who you purchase it from. If you want proof go on youtube and look at some videos of people actually downloading java games to their phone.
