X5Masterchief,

Maybe I can help to find what was the problem with your subscription or your old phone.

Was it a pre-paid SIM card? If yes, please send a similar Pre-paid card to me (via mail) with low balance to me and I can try to trace...

Sure.

After one year a better phone shouldn't be expected should be mandatory.

In almost 30 years of IT, the U960 is the only piece of technology ever seen that lasted unbeaten for a whole year

Yep!

ZTE becomes world's fourth largest smartphone maker

"...
ZTE has become the fourth largest smartphone manufacturer in the world, according to a report by the International Data Corporation (IDC), pushing HTC further down the list.
IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker put the Chinese telecommunications equipment and mobile device firm in fourth place in the third quarter, behind Samsung, Apple and RIM.

ZTE shipped 7.5 million smartphones in the third quarter of this year, helping it to take the place of HTC and almost pushing it past RIM, with just a 0.1 percent gap between them.

The success for the company is attributed to ZTE's expansion to markets outside of China, with 35 percent of the company's shipments coming from international markets, including North America, the UK, Switzerland, Turkey, Italy and Russia.


“The performance of our flagship Grand series smartphones has been a major driver of ZTE’s continued growth in the sector,” said Mr. He Shiyou, EVP and Head of the Terminal Division at ZTE. “These include both 3G and LTE devices such as the quad-core Grand Era, the dual core Grand X, and the Intel powered Grand X In. We also launched the world’s slimmest Quad-core Smartphone, Grand Era U985, in Q3.”

ZTE is also the second fastest growing smartphone manufacturer, behind Apple, with a 400 percent increase in shipments between 2010 and 2011, when it shipped 15 million units. With 7.5 million sold in the third quarter of 2012 alone, that figure is likely to be significantly higher this year, and we might even see it become the third largest smartphone maker soon."

Please help.
I got a ZTE U 960 phone from etotalk and I have this problem:
When I turn on the phone, the screen remain black even it makes the opening sound.
Until now I installed only the latest ROm U960_MOD_v16c provided by etotalk.
I read the previous posts but I am very confused. I tried to follow the steps from ZTE U960 ROM Discussion
but I failed.
I can't do anything because my screen is black and I can't see what happening with the phone.
Can you please help and some step by step instructions.
Thanks

Is it only me who thinks this u960 is just a regular/fair phone ?
Android 2.3 is a piece of Shi$&#! Lots of new apps are requiring 4.0, like new Instagram, chrome and others.
Lots of slowdowns, touch is not very sensible (try gently pressing "P" close to the corner), there's a big light leaking under the lower buttons.

I really just tolerate this phone because my main operator doesn't have 3G and I have to use another operator for internet connection.

I bought another phone from etotalk, the Newman N1, let's see how it works.

I try it but I get an error
even the phone is open and connected to my computer.
It is so bad because I can not see anything on the screen.
To be sure that the phone is open I first remove the battery from my phone, I wait for a minute, then I put the battery back to my phone, I open my phone (even I could see anything on my screen) and I heard the opening noise, I wait for a minute to be sure that it finish to open, then I connected the phone to my computer and I start the reco.bat file and I press 1+ enter and I get this error message that the cable is not connected.
I think that my computer can not see the phone and I don't know how to do it.

It seems that in all the advices that I get I must use or see the phone screen but as I told before I can't see anything on my phone screen. I need something to do without touching my screen or something that can make my phone screen alive, back to life..
Thanks anyway for trying to help me..

I bought my phone from etotalk.com about 6 months ago. I contacted them trying to send back the phone to fix because it is in warranty period (1 year). After 3 weeks of e-mail exchanges they told me that the phone screen has only 3 months warranty and that I have to pay 100 $ to fix it and of course the shipping. They gave me an address that is in an apartment and a phone number that it is phantom number.
On etotalk.com webpage you can find this
How Long is the warranty?


Warranty is one year. If you have problem with the phone within one year, you can ship it back for warranty fix.

Note: Software fix and phone's original fix are free. The warranty does not cover physical damage, but we can still repair it with service charge.

For battery and headset and sd cards, the warranty is 3 months.
As you can see there say nothing about 3 months for phone screen. I also sent them photos of my phone to see that the screen is OK and that was never hit or broken . They admit that the phone is OK but....
So they lie.
DON'T BUY FROM Smartphone Dual SIM,Smartphone Wifi GPS,Android Dual SIM Smart Phones!

Well China is the world's largest cell-phone market, and China Mobile is the world's largest carrier with the most subscribers, 700 million.

There's probably a very limited market for dual-SIM phones in places like the United States. Where phones are normally supplied by the carriers, subsidised and are SIM-locked to a particular carrier. Not much point in having a SIM-locked dual-SIM phone, it kind of defeats the object.

I am sorry to read of your difficulty.

Still, I am puzzled over a few points ...

How did the phone get in this state with a black screen ? Were you trying to update the PROM ? Were you trying to root it, with it not having been prevously been rooted ?

I chatted with some European suppliers of phones, and they made it clear to me that if I tried to replace the PROM or tried to root the phone and failed they would provide me no support. None. They advised such activities were implicity not included in the warranty. They went further and advised me I would void the warranty by such action on my part.

I can't tell if the European policy (of those suppliers) is the same as Etotalk, but my guess is there could be a simularity. ie if one tries to change the PROM themselves, or if one tries to root the phone themselves, then one can possibly void the waranty.

I wish you best of luck in trying to get the phone functioning again.

Until the problem occur I installed only the latest ROm U960_MOD_v16c provided by etotalk. In one afternoon (when I used several times the phone in the morning) I was received a call but looking at my phone I could not see anything because the screen was blak. I answer the call "in blind" without seeing what happens on the screen. After I finished the call I try to get my phone to life so I remove my battery and I succeeded but only for a few minutes but after 10 minutes the screen get black.
It is very interesting that when I open the phone I can hear the regular opening noise...

This could be a hardware problem.

Still, I'm wondering if in the process of trying to 'fix it' you mistakenly 'bricked' it ?

With my ZOPO smartphone, the 1st time I received a call, the screen went black. I could answer the call in the 'blind' without seeing what happened on the screen. But the screen was black and the phone in essence useless. Sound familiar ?

After I finished the call, I tried to get the phone to life. So I removed the battery and continued. Another call and the screen went black again. The phone was then once again in essence useless. Sound familiar ?

I surfed the web and learned it was a calibration monitor problem.

So this time, I removed the battery, restarted again, and IMMEDIATELY upon getting a screen (BEFORE it went black again) I calibrated the monitor per the previous link: zopo zp500 - setting for proximity sensor calibration-- screen off when making calls I acted as fast as I could before screen went black again.

I have had no problem since.

What I did NOT do was try to hack in to the phone via computer nor try to reburn the PROM, ... as that risks bricking the phone and voiding the warranty.

... anyway ... this is all well above my next to zero knowledge on the subject. I wish you the best of luck in trying to sort this.

Default Power loss

Lately I have been having a situation when my phone after laying down for a while will loose power and will only come back on after taking the battery out and putting it back in. I am using the latest update 2b08 form ZTE. Anybody has an idea what is going on here?

Hi Guys,

anybody have a problem with 100% processor load?
I have many times this. Installing the Android System Info Application I can see that the process:
android.process.acore appeared on the tasks, sometimes 3, 4 times, with high memory usage (30 Mega) with 0 CPU usage, and off course several times with 100% CPU usage. IF I kill the process the process load got back to normal.

Can be a launcher incompatibility?
I am using the GO Task Manager
Or can be auto SYNC problem?

Thanks in advance,
Tamas

I have the experienced a simaler problem occasionally.
If i make or take a phone call and whoever i ring hangs up before i remove the phone from my ear the screen won't wake again.
I have to pull the battery and power up the phone again.
I think it is something to do with the proximity sensor on the phone and by using the test code *983*367# from the dial pad i tested the proximity sensor. when there is nothing near the phone the sensor reads FAR as it should but when i place my finger over the sensor it alternates from NEAR to FAR.
The light sensor values are correct and do not alternate just the proximity values

In the play store there is an app to fix this as it seems to be a problem on other ZTE handsets also.
It is called Proximity sensor calibration by zte.
I've downloaded it and tried using using it but i get force close message so it doesnt work for me.
Has anyone else tried this app and has it worked for you?
If so what rom are you using. I'm using etotalks 1.6b rom since May and it is a very stable rom except for this one issue and i'm curious if its rom related or just a general ZTE glitch??

Same problem time to time.
Also others reported.
I have not found any solution/root cause.
Maybe check your processor load? (see my previous post)

I have never succeed with any type of Catty"s ROM. Problem with screen after the update - several members had reported the same type of problem...
My HW is tsc6C.
Maybe a common root?

I think it would be fairly safe to say you will never see a 4.xx version for the u960 unless you are able to hack one together by your self.

This sounds like something you have installed on your own, i am unable to find this process on my phone.
You need to figure out what software creates this tread, and the uninstall it or get the software vendor to fix the issue.

What do you mean by "after several trys"? I have the same problem of loosing power when the phone is just lying idle. To get it back and running I will have to take battery out and reinsert. Can you help me?

Mine is broken too. Is your digitizer broken or LCD? digitizer is the first layer (touch), and LCD is the second (images).

This is the LCD. The digitizer is here ZTE U960 digitizer but I can't buy because there is no carrier to my country when I'm finishing the order, even Brazil is listed. Their email support is crappy.
