Default CECT X1 Hard Reset?

Hi,

My CECT X1 was playing up recently and whilst playing around with It I accidentally reset it and skipped the stylus calibration screen. The screen is also locked and I cant unlock it

Does anyone know how to hard reset a CECT X1

thanks in advance

The technical support people where I bought the phone from claim to hard reset the device you hold the `volume up` button and the `camera` button while pressing the `power` button. After 100`s of attempts and differing combinations of this process I still cant get it to reset????

Try to remove the battery and then to press those buttons while fitting it back on.

Mobile phone developers are strange creatures and seem to have more than 5 fingers, so they come up with all this crap...

Cheers,

Question CECT X1 GPS won't hard reset

I tried what you said with my CECT X1 3.5" GPS phone, but it did not seem to work... How many times did you try?
