Yes, I can confirm ... there is only one IMEI ...

Does Handcent SMS supports dual sim ? I mean can you use Handcent SMS and choose the SIM that you want to use to send the message ?


For the contact do you have names show both for sms and calls ?

No, Handcent does not support sim chioce... I use Handcent for the notify icon in the status bar ... and the default app for send messages with the option for choose the sim ...

Yes I have the name of the contact shown both for sms and calls ...

If you want, try the my rom ... I think it could solve some problems...

No other phone (AFAIK) has the same radio configuration.

Very likely it's a bug that not surface on the TD network, or the SMS w/o a sender number aren't just used in China.

Either way hardly ZTE will fix something that doesn't know is broken.

Could be worth to contact and to inform them about this behavior.

I don't know if my mail about the Vodafone SIMs problem was taken in account, but they fixed it.

Where did you buy your phone (taobao, etotalk or somethere else)? If your phone is not rooted, you can do it by yourself.

I already informed on Malshenzu about name SMS, and ZTE developers took that into attention as they told me, lets cross the fingers that they fix that also

I bought my phone in etotalk. It was already rooted and with android market.
You need to find manuals on this forum how to root phone, install recovery console and android market.
You should be prepared, when ordered phone in country with specific policy for google services

hi catty62
Thanks for the information. I had rooted the phone and super user installed. I installed etotalktool and move the recovery_cn.img to the sdcard. But when i run the 'flash recovery from sdcard' from the etotalktool, and select recovery_cn.img and click 'ok' to flash recovery, it just restart and show the bootscreen for a second and then black screen (power off). when i press vol-dn & power on it does not go to recovery screen. did i miss anything?

I have had a B63M that have the MTK6573 ... the only way to have flash player working (IMHO) is to install Flash Player ArmV6 10.1 and Puffin Browser from the Play Store ...

Hello, i have a big problem with my Vodafone 3G SIM cards in slot1, after reboot/network reset i am booked in for 1 second but afterwards the card didnīt work in slot1.I only get a network display for 1 second.
I has installed V1.5d and i installed the newest V1.5e ROM but without success.
My card is a vodafone UMTS(3G) card wich is marked with an G, that say 64K and UMTS(3G).
Has anywone a card marked wit a G (64k 3G) working in slot1?
With a special Vodafone dual number card, same number as above and another number(numbers booked in selectable by pin input) i get for 15 seconds a network, in these 15 seconds i could start a call but after the end of the call the network is lost again.
My cards work well in slot2 and a card from a friend works well in slot1 - so there is no hardware error.
Does anyone have any idea or the same problem?
I hope that the error can be fixed with a software update and is not a hardware problem concerning my sim cards.
My dealer etotalk told me that they have problems with 128K sim cards at the moment, but my card is according to print a 64k 3G card.

It works when a new SIM is detected, so only after the SIM is replaced or after an hard reset.

AFAIK the problems with 128K SIMs were limited to Italian Vodafone sim only.

BTW tey are fixed with the baseband I linked earlier in this thread, so try to update the baseband before trying anything else.

Thank you very much Solutor,
i thought that the newest ROM delivers the newest baseband version(v1.5e etotalk).
At the moment i have this version istalled:
U960V1.0.2B03T and SIM2 U960V1.0.2B03W.
Is your linked version older or newer or did perhaps the older version work better?
Thanks you for a info before i update the baseband version.
I think my vodafone card is 3 years old has 64k 3G, i live in Germany.

Hello again, i tried to update it but it doesnīt work.
I installed the drivers and when i enter *983*376# it says o.k.

Afterwards i started Research download and took the B12.pac file and started the update with the start button.
USB debugging is turned on and i could in Windows7/64bit see that my device is com5 so i took port 5 in the research download software(but i also tried "all")
On the screen i can read
port:5
step:FDL
status:checking baudrate
process:waiting
I tried all baudrates but without success - can you tell me what went wrong?
thanks for help again

I do not know if you followed the instructions completely, that's all it takes:
1、Firstly install the drivers package (drivers are meant for XP32 only, so you need an XP machine to update the phone), then dial *983*376#, and select SP_Download,wait for the driver installation process
2 Launch the flasher SW clicking on the ResearchDownload.exe file.
3 Choose the baseband file (*.pac) from the flasher program (pushing the gear button, first on the left), then push the Play (triangle) button.
4、Connect the phone, dial *983*376#, and select SP_Download,the flashing process should start, let it finish (about 30/40 seconds usually), then push the Stop (square) Button
5、Reboot the phone

Solutor and Catty62 you are the best - thank you very much.
I updated the baseband version and took the 128k version and afterwards my network was stable and works fine, i took a XP because with my Win7 it didnīt work.
There is one question left about the baseband version - did you write this version by your own or is it from ZTE?

Writing a baseband software, especially one for a new chip used in one phone only requires skill and documentation that only few people have, possibly even ZTE use a precompiled baseband SW from Spreadstrum and use it as is or with few modifications.

I just managed to get it earlier from an unofficial way.

EDIT: I just read that you used the B12 included with my rom, correct ?

That baseband that was not enough to fix our problem with 128K.
If it fixed your problem there isn't any reason to update it again,, but the baseband I was speaking about is newer and is linked on post #65 of this thread.

Hello solutor,

Lets wait if Etotalk uses this version for their ROMs in the future - if they know that there is a solution.

I linked the baseband to etotalk well before posting it here, clearly they cared very little about my info.

BTW I believe ZTE itself will start to update the baseband in the recent phones.

For the record I understood very recently that altough the Spreadstrum chip is a dual standard (TD-SCDMA/WCDMA) capable chip it is used only for the SIM 1, the SIM2 is managed by the Qualcomm CPU itself.

This means two things

#1 there is a different baseband for SIM2 (that requires a different flashing procedure)

#2 theoretically could be possible, with the right baseband SW, to have a real dual 3G phone with both SIMs enabled to the European 3G

Hello solutor, these things are very interesting maybe it is possible in the future to get 3G speed also in slot1, but can you tell me what happens if i flash a new ROM - is the baseband version normaly included in the Rom or did i have to flash it seperately with research download in the future?
At the moment all works fine only the provider(vodafone) is displayed as 26202 only but this is a small thing.
It it very regrettable that etotalk cares so little about the problem, because i myself and another ZTE user asked them a lot of times to offer a new/fixed baseband version.
other questions:
Could you tell me if it is possible to make the inactive buttons(WLAN,bluetooth,GPS,sisplay rotation,...)more visible because in sunlight i only could see the active icons by the green bar and not the inactibe icons?
Is there a way to turn the volume during a call a little louder(the software volume is turnd loudest already) by codes?
Is there a way to turn the loudspeaker level a little louder by codes(media is turned loudest)?
The ZTE U960 is a good dual acive phone but the Dual Sim funktions are made better on the cheap china clones - i must say.
It should be possible to give Sim one and two on the dialing screen a name and seperate colors for Sim one and two on this screen and on the Network display at the top of the phone.
thanks for your work here

Usually the roms in zip format are meant to update just the userland, some of them will update also the kernel image and the fat partition with the join me sw.

BTW a look inside the zip is enough to understand what is meant to be updated, baseband, kernel and other images are relatively big .bin files

At least, they managed to send me the flashing tool i found as attachment on a Chinese forum,, this helped to solve the problem

Icons can be easily replaced directly inside the apk (which is a zip file with a different extension) most of the relevant icons are stored in framework-res.apk, phone.apk and settings.apk

BTW personally I prefer to use widgetsoid to quickly switch the functions I use frequently

I'm almost sure the volume is now lower than in the earlier roms, I haven't looked in to it, and fraknly i don't know if is a matter of baseband, userland, kernel

Btw I used a tiny sw for my old Desire Z to boost the volume that was one of the few defects of that phone I don't remember its name but I found it on XDA.

I already wrote it more than once, my old HD9 was way more handy on the dual SIM management side.

Looks like that the better brand lead to a poorer SW. Some nokia asha can't even turn off one of the two SIMs and can't differentiate the ringtones between the SIMs.

Anything is possible but the sources of the ZTE SW are still not available, so something like replacing the SIM1 writing with some more descriptive text could be possible, decompiling the apks with apktool, replacing the network names too (I did it) but this would be a personal workaround, not a solution.

Thanks again for your detailed explanations of my questions.
At the moment my U960 works and this is the most important thing, everything else is not so urgent.I am happy at the moment to have a working phone.
But ZTE/Etotalk could still improve a few things so that the phone is more user friendly concerning the dual sim functions - let's see what will happen in the future, or if they are already working for the next phone and only U960 errors are fixed.

ZTE U960 ROM MOD CATTY V1.5.1

ZTE_U960_MOD_Catty_v1.5.1_wipe make the wipe of the data partition

ZTE_U960_MOD_Catty_v1.5.1_nowipe do not make the wipe of the data partition

List of changes:
Added two personal ringtones
Fixed some translation of the main menu
Circle battery indicator in steps of 1%
New kernel with memory increased from 353 to 379 MB
busybox 1.19.0
Enabled adb unsecure
Enabled init.d script and inserted the following script:
01sysctl
02defragdb
03mount
04zipalign
05sdcardspeedfix

V6SuperCharger

The rom is obviously no guarantee. If something happens on the phone do not blame me, I'm experimenting on my phone and share what I have done with the community!

Before installing the rom make a complete BACKUP of your current ROM and data.

To install the ROM:
- Copy the zip file in the root of the sdcard outside.
- Enter in recovery mode and select "Install zip from SD Card"
- Choose the zip copied on sdcard.
- Wait until the installation process.
- Restart the phone.

Before installing V6SuperCharger enabled once WIFI.
The V6SuperCharger file is called "v6sc.sh" and is located in /system/xbin.
When installing V6SuperCharger click integration with build.prop and init.rc.

Thanks to:
- Zeppelinrox for V6SuperCharger
- LadyGeGe for a kernel with increased memory to 379 MB Rooted & Optimized by MaxFu
- The Solutor for the test period.
- All the others who have published their work for free.
- The last, of course not why less important, to TOTOGIGI for moral and specially material support in the realization of the changes.

You need to put the sim you use for data in the slot 2 (and tell the phone you want to use it for data) to have the 3g enabled.

If you are talking about slot1 it's normal... It's only GSM out of China where instead is TD-CDMA... Only slot 2 is wcdma...
