1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish 5 Oct. 2010
By tash
This is the worst phone i have ever brought!
It worked for about a week and after i dropped my phone on my bed it fell apart. A phone should be strong enough to withstand this.
Second of all mine kept crashing all the time more so when people would try and call me.

4.0 out of 5 stars i9+++ Owner 26 Nov. 2009
By A Barry
Firstly I have to say this phone is not an iphone it is a similar looking phone with the ability to do a lot of things that the iphone does. It is a fraction of the price of an iphone and is still pretty slick and fun to use. The fact it has Java enabled on it means many of the apps and games can be installed on it simply by hooking it up to your pc with the packaged USB cable. Find a site with downloadable apps/ games and stick the downloaded '.jar file' on to your phones micro SD memory card. Then in the phone settings click on Java icon go to the file on your memory card select app/game and install - simple. It has dual sim facility and is unlocked so you can stick a couple of sims in there from different network providers if you like. There are even knock off versions of this phone now coming out of China so be careful to research the one you're buying. It plays MP3's, MP4's and stores photos etc on the memory card too. You can get a range of accessories to customize your phone if you hunt around. The camera is actually 1.3 megapixel not 2.0 but it is a phone camera not a dedicated camera. If the camera was 4.0 megapixels or more the price of the phone would have to double so be realistic. That would be the best way to sum up this phone. You get a lot of features on this phone for a decent price but don't expect it to be state of the art however that doesn't make it cheap and nasty - far from it. Hope this helps as I really like mine.

1.0 out of 5 stars CECT i9 touch phone 1 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase
I purchased this phone a few days ago, I've worked on learning how to use it, searching the Net and various forums there to discover how to use it. The Opera mini browser works very well on the unit, but there doesn't appear to be an icon for launching the app directly (see below). Setting up the internet connection was very easy (using Orange).

There are a few weaknesses;

1) the bundled games and 'Easter Eggs' can't be removed.

2) the battery life is very poor, about 24 hours on standby. Probably due to the electronics than the battery

3) on my particular unit the back of the case slips off a little too easily (is that better than not being able to remove it??)

4) the touch screen is a bit slower than an iPod/iTouch

5) there aren't icons for the additional java apps (I'm not a developer so don't want to develop icons for them)

6) the manual is woeful, so optimum setup is a hit and miss affair and means searching through the Net

7) the grafitti writing is OK but some 10 years down the road from the Palm Pilot and Hand Spring, it could be better.

There are probably better phones out there, the Samsungs perhaps?

1.0 out of 5 stars poor poor (poor) quality 5 Nov. 2011
By Armax
when I bought this item I was aware of the poor reviews but I decided to go ahead and buy it anyway. I don't regret my decision, because what I wanted was a cheap dual-sim phone. However, the software phone is very painful to work with and the touch screen is really hard to use (you have to tap very hard). Once, I must've tapped so hard that the screen went to pieces. Oh, well you get what you pay for, so beware!!

1.0 out of 5 stars All i9 phones are total rubbish 6 Dec. 2011
By Itsmo
All i9 phones are toy phones/joke phones. No manual, no customer support, passive/agressive and useless replies from manufacturer/seller. No way of installing new java apps, stupid crashing noise when you touch top of screen, non-installed apps with icon that just says 'app not installed' when you try to run them. I could go on and on. Do not buy an i9 phone or Sciphone from anyone. Amazon should be ashamed of them selves for acting for these sellers.

2.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish phone !!!!!! 18 Nov. 2009
I have brought one of these phones off Ebay, and what a load of rubbish these phones are. firstly you have to keep charging the phone every day, theres no caller or text message ID, so unless you can remember all your friends and familys phone numbers you don know who's contacting you, also the camera is not 2 mega pixel as they claim, more like 500 thousand pixels if that, the camera is realy poor, and the internal memmory of the phone is only about 1MB so your gonna need a micro sd card. So in summary save your money and get something better, as this phone is total rubbish, putting it politely.
