Thanks for your help Solutor, got the ZTE U960 running perfectly now. All in all its a pretty damn good phone - certainly the only choice if you want to use 2 european 3G GSM cards, nothing else available comes close.

All works as expected, the only positives and negatives that stand out for me are:

- would have liked a better quality screen. Its okay, but obviously not up to iPhone resolutions.
+ Battery much better than expected, really can do nearly 2 days with everything left on.
- Feels a bit plastic & cheap, wish it didn't have the logo's then it would look a lot better.
+ Dual sim management is very good, although it took me a while to realise that 3G only works in SIM2 when you are using 2 GSM sims.
- Have had one or 2 crashes playing games
+ Finally a dual sim phone with enough storage not to have to move all apps to SD!
- slow start up. Also sometimes lags a bit, although only temporarily.

Its the first dual sim phone that I'm actually going to keep using rather than throwing in the back of a drawer in frustration, so finally i'm only carrying one phone instead of my Desire Z & 4s :-)

Anyone one want to buy an HDC A9100 or an H7000? They're not much use as phones, but they make nice paper weights.

Default ZTE u960 trouble

hi all
i have just got a new Zte u960 from etotalk.
its a nice phone good size good screen and a fast processor but i am having a problem with a pop up error message about every twenty seconds or so.this is the message i get.

the process com.android.phone has stopped unexpectedly
what is causing this and is there a quick way to stop it? i've contacted the vendor but with time differences and what not i thought i'd try here and see if anyone has experienced this problem before.

i had the phone rooted and google android sofware put on before i got it. also its my first android phone so i thought getting them to leave it ready for use would iron out any problems. not so though

thanks in advance for any help or suggestions

First of all what rom do you have preinstalled ? It comes with the market and root or not ?

Anyway the first thing you should do is to wipe the phone (from the privacy menu) start with the fresh system and see what happen.

the screeen quality is top level: good contrast, good viewing angle, decent black, good color balance and so on.

The iphone 4 has a better resolution, but is also a phone that cost twice...

Yes, is good, but the cheap clones have a way better management (only one call button, custom SIM names, custom signal color for signal background and call logs, optional defaults for voice calls, sms and data and so on, btw this is only a SW matter, surely improvements will come in the future.

DZ is almost a perfect phone, is so stable and problem free that is boring but the ZTE beat it in audio quality, signal sensitivity, and screen quality..

Its certainly a good screen for this level phone, but I am looking forward to when dual sim phones catch up with the high end mainstream phones & we get the better screens (& much quicker CPU's).

I'm looking at alternative ROM's as the one I got from Etotalk does crash a fair bit, especially when playing games. Which do you recommend for speed & stability? I had a look at the site you linked to, but as it was all in Chinese I was concerned that any ROM's may also be in chinese. How are you getting on with B13? Does it have English included?

You can always expect better things, especially in the tech area,

But this is not a "good screen for this level phone", is a very good screen *in general*, just comparing it with the 95% of the brand phones.

Most of the non amoled HTC phones have worse screens, the motorola Droid 3 and droid 4 have a worse screen, iphone 1/2/3 have a worse screen, and so on....

Today 05:07 PM
I built a B13 rom cleaned from chinese apps and with the market preinstalled, I'll upoload it later.

I have not much time to do it now.

Solution found. just in case anyone has the same problem again.
i tried phone with one sim at a time and found that it was my vodafone sim card causing the problem. got a new simcard from vodafone shop and the phone now works perfectly

I've reached the same position with my G11i Pro from etotalk. It's an excellent phone and outperforms my old Nokia N97mini in weak signal areas. Admittedly, it can't support two conversations at once like the U960 ... but then neither can I!

I gave my Cherry Orbit (GSmart G1310) away ... to my worst enemy!

Looks like it is really unfriendly with vodafone.

Out of couriosity, where are you from ?

The new and old sims are 64 or 128k ?

Is the new sim working in the slot 1 too ?

I know, there are a lot of questions but they can help the new users a lot to understand what's going on with vodafone sims.

Thanks in advance.

I'm in Ireland. As to the sim card size i don't know the difference in them. i would have had the old sim card for a few years. the only difference i can physically see is the exposed gold chip on the new sim is smaller than that on the old one.

the vodafone sim works in both sim 1 and sim 2 slots

etotalk also got back to me this morning. i have to say it took them less than 24 hours to get back to me which is fairly quick.

just read that Samsung is releasing 3 dual sim androids:
Samsung Galaxy Ace Duos surfaces, costs 260 - GSMArena.com news

But the new Galaxy Ace Duos will be GSM + CDMA, instead of dual GSM

nonetheless, if the trend continue, its a matter of time we see Galaxy S Duos

Likely is different in Ireland, but on italian SIMs the size is printed on the sim itself and also visible trough the SIM management page on the Vodafone.IT portal.

There's also an option to upgrade the SIM from 64K (and smaller sizes) to 128k, unfortunately there isn't such option to downgrade from 128K, although the 64K SIMs are still widely available to the new customers.

Interesting, thanks.

Practically they forwarded to you one of the mails sent to me earlier, so wasn't really a big effort.

BTW that rom is still a B08, with some customizations made from etotalk, the market already integrated and the Chinese apps removed.

Not a big upgrade for the people who have the phone already working fine.

The first big improvement is present on the B13 rom, where the TTS management is fixed.

Recently a lot of phones have the baseband frontend which is dual standard, then the CDMA or GSM part can be disabled/not enabled via SW.

So phisically that phones are ready since the day one to dual GSM and likely to dual CDMA (in the Chinese flavour, which is based on SIMs like the GSM), so we will have to wait and see.

For the producers is just matter of installing a different baseband SW

Spend a few more dollars and buy the AT&T G11i Pro from etotalk. Just compare the specs, then realise that Bruno supports the G11i with excellent modified ROM images.

Default nit picking the u960

Two minor things i can fault with the zte u 960. these do not affect the operation of the phone but are niggly little things that work but just not as well as they could.

the messages app preinstalled on the phone doesn't support those emoji characters. it can send them when the emoji keyboard is installed but it doesn't display or read them when the phone recieves them.
i downloaded the go sms app and one or two others to try and they solved the emoji issue but don't offer the option to send from sim1 or sim2 therefore having to use one number for all texts. taking away from the money saving benifits of dual sim.
is there any sms app that supports a dual sim function that works properly?

Another issue is with the contacts app. when impoting contacts from simcard to phone it doesn't save them to the phone but merely lets you see the contacts on the simcard in the contacts app. to save them to the phone you have to move them individually within the contacts app. Also the app doesn't fully understand the international dialling codes. i have all my contacts saved with international dialling codes in front of the number and when i get a call from any of my contacts on the phone it doesn't recognise the number. the text message app recognises them but not the dialler/contacts app.

I can't help here I use the SMS rarely so I'm not the right person to reply to that question

My contacts were already stored on gmail so were automagically imported on the first use.

Are you sure the contacts aren't imported, maybe they are just grouped under a "imported" group.

I noticed this a couple of time, I have still to understand when it happen, and if happen only on one of the two sims.

What I noticed is that when happen the + sign is missing, so the contact app is nitpicker, bt is the phone itself that "eat" a part of the number.

I've heard of this same problem on some of the earlier apple iphones where it understood the international codes with 00 as opposesed to a + or vice versa. At the time i think the solution was to set up each contact with two numbers one beginning with + and the other 00.
i'm not going to do that though i think i can live with it the way it is!

Dear etotalk,
I've sent you some questions via email and still waiting answers. Hope that will receive it soon .
Will duplicate some of them here if you don't mind.
1) I have troubles with pure signal strength if simcard(64k) is in SIM1 slot. If I put the same simcard in different phone, for example iphone, it shows 4-6bars against 2-3 in zte u960. How to fix it?
2) Android marked is being closed with error message "android market has been closed with unexpected error". How to fix it?
3) If I need second battery and some accessories for my zte u960, will I be able to buy it in your store?
4) Do I need to update firmware from B08 till B13, if I still have B08?

You must get used with the battery indication curve.

Like on most phones the curve is not exactly linear. Most of the power is drained between 45 and 100%, so when you read 35% likely you have something like a real 15%.

Just use "battery monitor widget" for a week or so to realize what's going on.

Let's see:
1- If they will ever get released. They announce but don't always follow...
2- If they are a total failure like the V350

I'm curious and interested but not holding may breath

saw that news this afternoon.
This should be quite reliable as phones in MWC are generally market ready.
looks promising.
and who knows, maybe ZTE will have a high end dual sim in the 8 phones they are announcing next week too.

by the way situation with etotalk changed for me before this I thought that would spend less if buy directly from other sellers not eTotalk. but when I got the phone i got also the problems, the known root methods not working the Installed ROM was not stable and had no other language than English and Chinese. I applied to Etotalk for help as they are only English speaking and well known sellers of phones who has multilingual ROM. Of course i have paid for the software they provide. From the first sight it is a little bit high price but it really cost the money asked. The service i got from them was kind and helpful they help me to unlocK 3G on second sim- root - new recovery flash - and provide all available roms for testing and find out the best one suit my needs. I can offer to everyone who dont want to experiment with unknown programs to apply for help to Etotalk

ViewSonic's ViewPhone 4e hands-on (video) -- Engadget

there you go, another possible candidate freshly out of WMC today. This one looks like will be out by June.

http://www.engadget.com/2012/02/26/viewsonic-viewphone-4s-hands-on-video/

The Viewphone 4s supposed to house much better display and better specs as well, also the UI is ICS based. The 4s looks like a really strong dual sim device. The name is a bit hideous though (and design a little bit as well).

Agreed. Discussion of technical minutiae relating to specific devices is completely overwhelming the topic and rendering the thread useless.

Temporarily closed until staff decide how best to proceed.

I have moved the discussion of Solutor's ROM to a new thread so this discussion may resume on the topic of the best dual SIM Android phones. Sorry for the delay, but there was a great deal of discussion about the best way to keep both interesting topics going. I hope the delay hasn't killed it for you guys.

If you want to discuss the ZTE U960 ROM, please continue in this thread : http://androidforums.com/other-phones-android-non-android/510094-zte-u960-rom-discussion.html

Yes, I have the same problem. Did you get a resolution to it?

Hello guys, i'm looking for my first android, well, i don't have so much money to waste, so i was looking for something not that expensive and still acceptable, i saw this one, could you guys tell me if i should buy that? (edit: well, as i'm a new member, i can't post link, but if you go to ebay and search for "Mobile TV Phone WCDMA 3G Dual Sim Unlock 4.3" Android 2.3 MP3 WIFI GPS 2GB A920" you will find it)

if not, what one should i buy? with maximum price of 230$, thanks for your attention =p.

Default XT532 Experience

I gathered that, but why does Home or Search button work when the phone is on the table? I cant see any reason why only back button should behave like that?

-----
A feedback on my experience in XT532 so far:

After months of wait, discussions, trialling V350 (and eventually returning the handset), following this thread - I got Motorola XT532 for a week now.

My decision to buy XT532 was based on:

Size: 3.5", better build, comfortable size to hold in pocket/hand
Price: Big difference to U960

I have been using HTC Desire and Desire S and I knew I wont get similar screen or performance, but pleased I dont have to carry two phones now!

In short - I am pleased with the phone - if not overjoyed!
- Good build, looks decent, back cover looks professional
- Dual sim functionality works well (with a caveat described later)
- WCDMA + GSM is fine and easy to switch between SIMs for data
- Screen resolution is decent
- Internal memory is ok (but not sufficient as I had to move many apps to SD card)
- No lock-ups so far but phone has run a bit slow on rare occasions

In general, pleased with the purchase. Two things are bothering at the moment and one seems to be rather serious.

1. In my excitement, I accidentally deleted deskclock.apk (I think) from /system/app . Since then I have not been able to set alarm. I downloaded some widgets and clock works fine but trying to set alarm gives error "process.com.android.deskclock has stopped unexpectedly". Can anyone please help how I can fix this? I downloaded some deskclock.apk and installed but to no avail as I think the apk must be linked to the firmware? Could anyone please email me the apk from their phone?

2. Secondly, and more worryingly - the GSM SIM (SIM 2) goes out of reach now and again. It is a O2, UK SIM and if I dial from another phone the message I get is "it is not been possible to connect your call, please try again later". What I sense is that something is happening on the phone/network so that instead of going to voice message, it makes the announcement as above. There is no visible pattern when the signal bar on the status bar disappears. I have not contacted Motorola or O2 yet but was hoping others may have faced the same problem and may have a resolution.

Point 2 is worrying but am sure I can fix both. Assuming they are fixed, I would be happy to recommend the phone.

Thank you and I had installed that app but then later deleted as it took precious 2.46MB of phone's memory. I cant afford that given all the apps I have!! So, ideally, looking for a stock apk that will resolve my problem.

Yes, I agree that phone specific discussions need not happen here but the forum you have is in Italian and I just struggled to create my login!! Possibly we can start a link on this form?

I have seen very similar problems on both dual SIM Androids I have owned - very frequent on the Cherry Orbit and much less frequent on the G11i Pro from etotalk.

The problem, appears to have been totally resolved on the G11i Pro since installing one of the later modified ROMs produced by Bruno Martins.

The G11i Pro now consistently outperforms my old Nokia N97 mini in weak signal areas.

Also, the G11i Pro is now able to receive calls on either SIM, even when a data connection is in use.

Default anyone had a play with the viewsonic yet?

I saw on ebay the viewsonic viewphone 3? and was wondering if anyone had seen it
I recall the v350 was not quite what people were expecting.
