I often write about and own many of these import, knock off iPhone clones and people sometimes tell me that although they would love to own one of these dual sim models, they hesitate because they think that it will be expensive or difficult to get accessories for it. The purpose of this article is to outline the most popular CECT accessories and to show the approximate cost (cheap) and availability (easy).
CECT i9 Instruction Manual, User's Guide, Internet Set Up: Probably the biggest worry that people have about the CECT i9 is that they won't be able to set up it up or sync it to work. This would be a real shame because now that this phone has Java, there are so many more productivity and gaming options available for this phone.
I find the set up to be pretty user friendly and there's no software (the phone will read your sim card), but I've done this several times before and I understand that having instructions in front of you is often easier. The instructions aren't all in Chinese, I promise. You can get instructions, set up and internet guides in any language imaginable, including English.
People sometimes worry about setting up the MMS on these phones. The instructions will walk you through this, for most all carriers (AT&T, T Mobile, Sprint, Cingular, etc. ) and typically only cost a few bucks.
Memory And Sim Cards: The i9 has the dual sim feature so you will need two sim cards if you want to use this (although the phone will work fine if you don't want to use it. ) But, if you want or need a spare, it will cost well under $10.
Replacement Batteries: You can replace the battery yourself with the clones. You don't need to go to the dealer when it dies. These phones are pretty efficient (with one of the longest talk and stand by times in the industry), but if you need a spare, they usually run under $2.
Car Chargers And Home Chargers For the I9: Most people charge their mobile phone every day (and having one for the car is usually a given) Home and car chargers for this model are often under $5.
Cases, Pouches And Skins: Consumers love to personalize their phones with cases and skins and the i9 is certainly no exception. You can usually get skins, cases and pouches in a wide variety of materials, colors and textures and more are becoming available all the time. Most times, you'll pay anywhere from $5 - $10.
Screen Guards / Protective Covers: These thin little stick ons protect the i9's touch screen from scratches, finger prints and damage. They are dirt cheap and in my opinion a no brainer.
Car Chargers And Home Chargers For the i9: Most people charge their mobile phone every day (and having one for the car is usually a given. ) Home and car chargers for this model are often under $5.
Hands Free And Head Sets: This is one place where I might recommend you spend a few more dollars to get high quality speakers. CECT's are known for and have very loud, sharp, crisp speakers. So, it doesn't make sense to buy a pair of cheap head phones / sets that are going to take this sound quality away. Bluetooth headsets for this model are also very popular. But again, nothing here (even the highest quality models) runs over $20.
